Dear Good Christians Railing Against Helping Refugees

Dear Good Christians Railing Against Helping Refugees November 19, 2015

The Satanic Temple Minneapolis Chapter writes:

If there is anyone in the Minneapolis area who is Muslim and afraid to leave their home out of fear for some kind of backlash, don’t hesitate to reach out to us. We would be glad to escort you where you need to go without advertising our presence – just big dudes walking you where you need to be. We would also happily accompany you so you can get some groceries.

In other news, godless socialist cheese-eating surrender monkey French whom courageous Crusader warrior Clash of Civilizations heroic conservatives have derided for years show the Frightened Party of Banishing Five Year Old Orphans to Death Under Daesh how it is done. France declares they will not appease or surrender to Daesh and will receive 30,000 refugees over the next two years, in contrast to this shameful spectacle of cowardly appeasement:

Also, a Frenchman released this video to ISIS in honor of his murdered wife which is a *vastly* more courageous act of defiance than trembling at five year old orphans or offering bellicose promises of blood and thunder.

YOU WILL NOT HAVE MY HATRED

Friday night, you took an exceptional life — the love of my life, the mother of my son — but you will not have my hatred. I don’t know who you are and I don’t want to know, you are dead souls. If this God, for whom you kill blindly, made us in his image, every bullet in the body of my wife would have been one more wound in his heart.

So, no, I will not grant you the gift of my hatred. You’re asking for it, but responding to hatred with anger is falling victim to the same ignorance that has made you what you are. You want me to be scared, to view my countrymen with mistrust, to sacrifice my liberty for my security. You lost.

I saw her this morning. Finally, after nights and days of waiting. She was just as beautiful as when she left on Friday night, just as beautiful as when I fell hopelessly in love over 12 years ago. Of course I am devastated by this pain, I give you this little victory, but the pain will be short-lived. I know that she will be with us every day and that we will find ourselves again in this paradise of free love to which you have no access.

We are just two, my son and me, but we are stronger than all the armies in the world. I don’t have any more time to devote to you, I have to join Melvil who is waking up from his nap. He is barely 17-months-old. He will eat his meals as usual, and then we are going to play as usual, and for his whole life this little boy will threaten you by being happy and free. Because no, you will not have his hatred either.

I have been told for *years* about the cowardice and silliness of the French by the Real Americans who are currently cowering at the thought of the Orphan Terrorist Threat. I have heard for *years* from Real Catholics about how the reason the French are cheese-eating surrender monkeys is because, unlike the Greatest Catholics of All Time (who are cheering for the American Conservative “Slammed Door” policies), they have no moral fiber due to their godless socialism and Euroweenie reluctance to fight manly wars. I’ve heard times without number that Real Catholics obey the Church and Do the Right Thing and Stand with the Pope.

And yet here we are, with the French showing the Party of Personal Responsibility how it’s done and Satanists–SATANISTS–showing more guts, compassion, human decency, and, yes, Christian charity and obedience to the Pope than the Greatest Catholics of All Time (who were busy in my comboxes denouncing him as “your senile boyfriend” this weekend).

The judgments of God are piquant. Using the French and Satanists to highlight the shameful cowardice Real Americans and Real Catholics is classic.

“I will make you jealous of those who are not a nation;
with a foolish nation I will make you angry.”

¶ Then Isaiah is so bold as to say,
“I have been found by those who did not seek me;
I have shown myself to those who did not ask for me.”
¶ But of Israel he says, “All day long I have held out my hands to a disobedient and contrary people.” (Ro 10:19–21).

If you are among those cheering for slamming the door in the faces of refugees and orphans, feel the shame and repent.

And for God’s sake (literally), stop saying “We can’t just fling open the doors and let people in unvetted!” Absolutely nobody (except for conservative politicians who are playing on your fears) is saying that. And the conservative politicians know perfectly well that we already have an elaborate screening mechanism in place. But they count on you not knowing that to control you with fear.

Don’t believe me? Here is the Cato Institute, not exactly a liberal think tank, to tell you that Syrian refugees don’t pose a serious security threat. This is the Ebola panic redivivus, a panic du jour from the party that governs almost entirely by panicking its followers.

Stop being played, repent, and believe the gospel.
