What A Rabbi, An Imam And A Bishop Think About Jeff Sessions' Zero Tolerance Policy (HBO)

Оценок: 580 | Просмотров: 26046
Attorney General Jeff Sessions is facing mounting criticism from an unexpected group: fellow members of his church. More than 600 members of United Methodist Church issued a formal complaint against Sessions three days after he used a passage from the Bible to justify the Trump administration's controversial "Zero Tolerance" policy against immigrants arriving at the border. Sessions has been an adamant defender of the policy, which has resulted in over 2,000 children being separated from their parents since early May. Specifically, his fellow church members are charging him with "the misuse of Romans 13 to indicate the necessity of obedience to secular law," among other offenses. They're far from the only ones criticizing Sessions' use of religion to defend his policy on the border. VICE News sat down with a bishop, an imam, and a rabbi to discuss Sessions' controversial use of religious text — and how religious doctrine is often abused to further political interests. "In each of our faith traditions and all faith traditions the goal is not to blindly follow but to search and to really explore, and think, and wrestle, and come up with answers," said Rabbi Yael Rapport when asked about the Attorney General's use of Romans 13. "I imagine that Sessions used that quote in order to reinforce this idea of hierarchy: that the text is teaching you must follow who's above you."

I assure you that the honorable Jeff Sessions cares not what a commie, a terrorist, and a pedo commie think about him or his policies. He's too busy repressing his gay urges whilst making America great again by keeping the dirty hordes out.

Hate to break it to you these people and all the people from Jeff sessions own faith and Jeff sessions don't speak for a single fucking person except themselves. It's called religion on both sides should stay out of politics completely. And there is this wonderful thing about religion, you dont have to follow everything nor listen to every single priest, imam or rabbi. They arent the one all be all interpretation of God and his existence. Plus this whole thing was going on during Obama, Bush and Clinton sad to see fellow liberals are now just making it a thing because Trump is in office and they are trying to make him look bad. Plus I am not condoning the policy, but like 400 of those kids separates from their parents were because like there was a massive smuggling group of a bunch of kids and like a handful of adults claimed they were the parents of all those kids. Just saying and that clearly wrong cause children are the most vulnerable and when you see a massive group like that dealing with crime syndicates, no matter what some of those kids will get abused and trafficked into much worse conditions and never be seen or heard from again.

Sessions own denomination any every other large denomination has condemned what Trump is doing to children.

"LIBERALS WANT OPEN BORDERS!" myth was started by conservative politicans as scare tactic and their constituents ate it up. Conservative politics revolve around fear. Reality is Obama deported more people than Bush did, but did not separate families. Liberals aren't for illegal immigration. There is a good and bad way to go about things. Spreading fear and racism is not the way to go.

Socialism may be becoming more and more popular but it doesn't have anywhere near the amount of people to start a civil war if that even was their goal which it is not. And, if you don't know. Socialism is more democratic that the Republic the US has today! I wish you a good day sir and hope you one day become aware of how backwords YOUR logic is.

Well I can respect you as a person, but your religion is cruel and it is curse for the humanity.

The most brutal governments and militias know that to devastate parents and traumatize children, a simple approach is to tear them apart. Imprison parents, detain children, don’t allow them to communicate with each other, don’t hint at the possibility of reunification. For parents, there’s nothing more devastating than the loss of their children. And when you forcibly remove children from their parents, you rip away the secure base that allows children to feel safe in the world despite the dangers that may surround them. In the absence of comfort, and facing both the loss of their parents and their own frightening detention, their young bodies and minds can get locked into a state of prolonged alarm. The brain’s threat system gets flipped into a permanent state of activation, flooding the body with the stress hormones cortisol and adrenaline. That’s okay for a very short-term emergency; the stress response system evolved to help us shift quickly into survival mode, and then switch off again as soon as we’re safe so that we can return to normal functioning. States of prolonged distress, however, can be extremely harmful, leading to an erosion of our emotional and physical health, eventually even endangering our survival. Among children, this state of prolonged threat can lead to what researchers call “toxic stress”. The stress hormones wear down the body and mind, weakening the immune system, and causing lasting damage to the brain. Children may experience recurrent nightmares, regress developmentally, lose their appetite, and engage in maladaptive coping responses—desperate attempts to self-soothe, ranging from aggression to self-harm, anything to numb the state of fear. I never dreamed I’d see it in the country of my birth, what hell it must be to live this and to witness...

In scientific language, Sessions is drawing a cruel and hateful conclusion and then seeking a passage to justify his prior prejudice. That's not how we find the truth. The first thing is to seek the truth, seek love and research reality to find a way to do that.

Who gives an f*** what a they think. What happened to separation of church and state? This quote coming from the god who gave a thumbs up to slavery and genoside. It’s always funny to see a bishop and rabbi and an imam, the bishop plagiarized the rabbi’s faith then the imam plagiarized the bishops. Why do people believe these “sacred books” if they read carefully they would be all killing each other and that’s the problem they want to pick an choose verses in line with them and ignore the awful shit in their books and that there religions have reaked in the world. Yes rabbi faith is blind it’s ironic you can see that. No bishop bishop our country wasn’t founded on religion if anything diesm but the constitution is secular which made America so great. Now ruined by the religious forcing there way into our government. Wanna live in a theocracy go to Saudi Arabia.
