Catholic priest questions how Christians can sleep at night over migrant children and questions their salvation

Published

on

Photos of migrant children being separated at the Southwest border have dominated news headline. The Trump administration has repeatedly used the Bible to defend their actions.

“I saw that, and thought it was obscene to use Romans 13 out of context. For Sarah Sanders to say it was biblical makes the law into an idol and removes the place of conscience,” Rev. James Martin said during an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper on Wednesday.

He wondered how Christians can even sleep at night with the injustice happening in America.

“It is sinful. It is an assault on human dignity, and it is unchristian. I wonder how people can sleep at night, as Christians, especially spouting this kind of hate. It is disturbing me,” he said.

Congresswoman Katie Porter, in a video posted on social media Monday night, shared with residents of her purple California district why she is joining dozens of other Democrats who support launching an impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump.

The group's 30th annual study of housing affordability found that a worker earning the federal minimum wage of $7.25—which is unchanged since 2009—cannot afford to rent a modest two-bedroom apartment in any state, metropolitan area, or county in the United States.

There is growing concern that China is trying to use universities to silence its critics in the West

Published

This is an important year in Chinese history. It marks the anniversaries of two political movements involving students and scholars: the May Fourth Movement and the Tiananmen Square protests – known in China as the June Fourth Incident.

The May Fourth Movement of 1919 challenged traditional Chinese values and authorities and demanded freedom of speech and democracy. Seventy years later – and 40 years after the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) had taken power – students, scholars, and other citizens mobilised again in defence of freedom of speech, human rights, and democratic values. But on June 4 1989, the CCP brutally crushed their movement. The crackdown created a legacy of heavily censored wrongs that cannot be righted while the current system lasts.
