Many Christians, including myself, felt the same way about the immigrant children as Erick Erickson. He, too wanted expedited deportations and a secure border. But wanted to make sure the children, some victims of human trafficking, were taken care of, fed, and comforted."sonicfilter

I Increasingly Find Conflict Between My Faith and Some Conservative Discourse
Were I to recreate this site, I think it would have no comments section. Disqus is just horrible. I do not recommend it to anyone. And it just helps further what I see on so much social media these days. As much as the internet can bring people together of like mind, it also can help shrill minorities of people think their views are more mainstream than they are. That then emboldens them further.
I am heartened by this post; I hope the other false Christians on here read and think.
I took a lot of heat for strongly supporting that same position on here.
Erickson was speaking from a Christian conservative's point of view.
He also wrote, "I知 a conservative before I知 a Republican. But before I知 a father or husband, I am a Christian. My politics have to be balanced by my faith. That faith requires me to put faith, hope, mercy, and grace ahead of much, including a lot of short term political gain. And sometimes that requires me to rely on Christ for justice, not the government."
Not all conservatives and Republicans are Christians. Just like not all Democrat liberals are atheists.
More Democrat liberals want to rely on the government instead of Christ...as Erickson pointed out since, as a Christian conservative, he could not do. Neither can I. Neither can many non-Christian conservatives.
As a liberal democrat, can you? Most democrats, Christian or not, seem to have no problem with it.
