Jesuit James Martin tweeted succinctly yesterday (1):
“Why are we having all these people from sh#*hole countries come here?”
1) They are our brothers and sisters in need.
2) They are often fleeing war, violence or famine.
3) There are children among them.
4) It’s the right thing to do.
5) That’s who we are.
There’s not much more to say about what’s wrong with Mr. Trump’s “shithole” remarks (plural (2)), except that if we can’t see the validity of each and every one of Martin’s points, we really do have a problem.
