Governor Patrick would have my vote if I lived in Massachusetts! "Faith
without works is dead."
Funny how so many had little problem spending TRILLIONS to "liberate the
Iraqi people" but balk at the spending a fraction of that to help out
innocent children.Christian nation are we?
Does this then mean that when these kids are eventually flown home to the
country they BELONG in, that the trip will be longer? Why do I cynically
believe there is little chance of them being returned? Oh that's right,
Obama is president, and he wants this to be happening. Never mind.
It is a wonderful, and right thing for the state to do. All other states should
follow their lead. Up to now America's attitude towards the displaced
children has been disgraceful. In other parts of the world, (i.e.: the middle
east), where America's and others presence has caused tens of thousands to
flee their homes and country to seek asylum and charity from other nations that
give and help freely, while the USA acts so bitter towards a few thousand
unfortunate children. America should shelter and educate the children, and
prepare them to return to their home lands better prepared to survive and help
change their nation for the better. At the same time the USA should help those
nations defeat their criminals; many of whom received their training in the US
streets and prisons.
I applaud the governor for doing what is right. It's great that the Bible
inspired him to do the right thing, but the Bible isn't necessary to know
that providing shelter for immigrant children is the right thing to do.
