Being Cautious About Syrian Refugees Does NOT Make You A Bad Christian

Being Cautious About Syrian Refugees Does NOT Make You A Bad Christian

Matt Walsh breaks down the Syrian refugee crisis in such a way that identifies and addresses both sides of the issue. This is common sense at its best.

From The Blaze:

So I guess the Syrian refugee crisis is the latest complex issue we’re supposed to pretend to have all figured out.

Well, perhaps against my better judgment, I’m going to admit that I don’t have it figured out, exactly. To be honest, I hadn’t even thought much about refugee policy until very recently. I haven’t spent very much time studying the legal and moral arguments for and against the various different sides. I haven’t investigated the theological justifications for all of the possible positions on the subject. I’m not an expert by any means. What I know about the relevant history I learned just in the last couple of days by reading a few articles, and all of the articles I’ve read have been extraordinarily biased. I have read zero books relating to this issue.

I don’t think I’m alone in this. I could be wrong, but I’m guessing that just about 99.999999 percent of the people who’ve been yammering authoritatively about the refugee crisis never even considered the problem of refugees until it became a trending topic. Now, they’re quite sure that whoever disagrees with the half-baked opinion they hastily assembled 12 seconds ago is a fool and a bigot. That’s just how the internet works, I know, but it’s still annoying.

Since we’re on the topic of half-baked opinions, I’ll tell you mine.

I don’t have the answers, and I know that no matter how you feel, America taking in a comparative

handful of refugees won’t solve anything. The real problem is that the Muslim Middle East is a horrible, awful place, and it has been for a long time, and it will continue to be as long as Islam breeds violence and savagery. Even if we provide shelter to some limited number of lucky people, Islamic State will still exist, and even if Islamic State stops existing, some other fanatical group of Islamic marauders and killers will take its place. I don’t think anything will “solve” that until Jesus returns, but in the mean time, we do what we can to cope and fight back.
