You're not a Christian. You don't practice anything of what Jesus preached.
You all belong to the Church of Greed. You'd rather knock down the ladder of opportunity that your ancestors climbed, than to let another immigrant climb it to have the same opportunities your ancestors had.
You'd rather label all of those refugees as terrorists than to welcome them with open arms, or with a glass of water, or with a bite of food. You don't care about anyone as long as you have yours. Right?
Why are you all so entitled? What makes any of you more special than those refugees fleeing war? What makes you deserve to live a comfortable life without the worries of war, or genocide but not them?
If we are to believe that every man is created equal then every man, woman and child have the right to seek out a better life.
There seems to be a new narrative being pushed, and that narrative is to hate on other people that are fleeing war.
That's not right.
You call it an "invasion", but I call it mass migration. The same type of mass migration that has occurred through out Human history. Just people migrating to other lands to seek out better opportunities. It's human nature. If you were in the same circumstances you would have done the same and so would I.
It's so easy to sit there and to say that they should just "stay and fight for their land". How many of you have had to make that decision? Most of you reading this were lucky enough to have been born in a nice country and none of you have had to fight in a civil war, and let me just say that voluntarily serving in the military does NOT equal staying behind and fighting in a civil war and running the risk of your family getting blown to pieces in the midst of a civl war.
This refugee/migrant hatred is getting ridiculous and I'm ashamed of my fellow Human beings that spout those sentiments.
But I still have a little hope.
If those refugees are willing to assimilate into these countries..... fine !
If they hold to Sharia above all other laws.....they are invaders.

Shame on the so called Christians who refuse to help others in need.
Shame on them all.

1. If we want to get technical, Christ said to render unto Caesar what is Caesar's.
In this case, Caesar would the nations being inundated with refugees. These nations have laws, and laws are there to be followed, by everyone, even desperate refugees. If no one were to follow laws or to only follow those laws that suit themselves, there would be anarchy and chaos and nowhere would be safe for anyone. Those fleeing such conditions would wind up in such conditions.
To put this in the terms of a street perspective, imagine if you had a house that was nicer than someone else, and they arbitrarily decided to move in with you because you had a better place to be. OK. Maybe you can absorb one or even two, but imagine the entire neighborhood moving in with you. How nice do you think your place would stay?
Or to use another analogy, how many people see the stories of the animal hoarders who started out with the best intentions to help homeless animals. At some point, the tipping point was reached, and instead of a safe haven, those animals wound up in worse conditions than what they escaped on the streets.
So as much as I like to help people, the reality is that there has to be order. There has to progression and there has to be rules imposed. That will mean there can't just be a flood of people to wherever. Some might have to turned away.
For example, why aren't they prioritizing women and children? Why so many young, apparently healthy, military age males? Couldn't they go back and fight for their homes?
