Who Is My Neighbor?

(65% of white Evangelicals oppose the U.S. decision to allow
Middle Eastern refugees into the county: Pew Research Center
Sept. 2015)

Why do those who make the greatest claims to righteousness;
who profess to protect life and defend the “written Word”;
who trumpet their patriotic love of American exceptionalism;
cringe at the first sight of strangers whom the righteous should love,
deny the promise of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness
to widows and orphans who are fleeing their homes in distress,
forget that American exceptionalism includes exceptional
generosity to the world’s “huddled masses, longing to be free,”
callously disregard the Word they profess to love when it imposes
on them a requirement to “love their neighbor as themselves?”
