Jesus Loves The Little Children, All The Children Of The World….

June 24, 2019

Many supporters of Donald Trump were probably in church on Sunday.  Some may have sat in the front pew.  Others no doubt shouted praise and lifted their hands skyward.  They may have even spoken out about abortion, the hottest topic for culture warriors since gay people are now just another average part of the landscape.

But what many of these ‘followers of Christ’ failed to do leading up to their pew sitting was exercise their power as a citizen and contact the White House demanding that the horrific conditions of children at the southern border be stopped.  And now!  What the Trump Administration has created on the border is a stain seen by the world community.  When Russia, Turkey, and others are admonished by our State Department they can correctly say ‘at least we do not house children in concentration camp conditions’.

Too many otherwise kind and considerate people have fallen to the dark side, which Trump uses for his political spin and gain.  Otherwise tender-hearted people, when it comes to children, now use harsh tones and unforgiving language when speaking of the sweet, frightened, and fragile brown-skinned boys and girls.  Because Trump has hate at his foundation a larger and growing number of others in this land are following his cues.

Which has led our nation to look awful, as the following was described, from Clint, Texas.

And so what we did then was we looked at the ages of the children, and we were shocked by just how many young children there were. There were over a hundred young children when we first arrived. And there were child-mothers who were also there, and so we started to pull the child-mothers and their babies, we started to make sure their needs were being met. We started to pull the youngest children to see who was taking care of them.

And then we started to pull the children who had been there the longest to find out just how long children are being kept there. Children described to us that they’ve been there for three weeks or longer. And so, immediately from that population that we were trying to triage, they were filthy dirty, there was mucus on their shirts, the shirts were dirty. We saw breast milk on the shirts. There was food on the shirts, and the pants as well. They told us that they were hungry. They told us that some of them had not showered or had not showered until the day or two days before we arrived. Many of them described that they only brushed their teeth once. This facility knew last week that we were coming. The government knew three weeks ago that we were coming.

So, in any event, the children told us that nobody’s taking care of them, so that basically the older children are trying to take care of the younger children. The guards are asking the younger children or the older children, “Who wants to take care of this little boy? Who wants to take of this little girl?” and they’ll bring in a two-year-old, a three-year-old, a four-year-old. And then the littlest kids are expected to be taken care of by the older kids, but then some of the oldest children lose interest in it, and little children get handed off to other children. And sometimes we hear about the littlest children being alone by themselves on the floor.
