Today, Christian Post published my article “If evangelicals are pro-family, then why don’t they care about Trump’s child separation policy?” I expected it to get pushback from the Trumpists and I was certainly right about that. But the vitriol from some folks … wow.
Here I’ll note just one comment. In the article, I pointed out that the Trump administration is violating the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child by separating refugee and immigrant children as young as 9 months old from their parents as a punitive deterrent. Here is how one commenter responded:
“I guess this author [Rauser] feels the same way about all criminals housed in our jails. They should not be separated from their parents either.”
Did you get that? According to this commenter, “Lee Fogarty,” refugee and immigrant children as young as nine months old should be treated like criminals.
That’s a response from (what I presume to be a) Trump supporting “Christian”.
