Reaction to Trump preferred refugee status reveals ‘blind spot’ to Christian persecution

Advocates who work to protect persecuted groups say there is a “blind spot” in the West concerning the plight faced by Christians around the world — a shortsightedness evident in the overwhelmingly negative reaction to President Trump’s executive order granting preferred refugee status to persecuted religious minorities.

From the Coptics in Egypt and the “house churches” in China to the “subversives” in North Korea and the “apostates” in Pakistan, Christians are under fire on the international stage.

Paul Coleman, deputy director of the Alliance Defending Freedom International, said the international persecution of Christians is unrivaled.

“No person or group should live in fear of being killed, tortured or oppressed because of their religious beliefs,” Mr. Coleman said in a statement. “By all accounts Christians are the most persecuted group on the planet.”

    Our country is totally askew, right is wrong and wrong is right and the branches of government now out of order and something that Thomas Jefferson and others feared. When the Judiciary, who is supposed to only interpret the law takes over the Presidency then we have a huge problem. When millions in this country believe that the Declaration of Independence, Constitution and Bill of Rights was written for the entire world, we are sick. When illegals who steal people’s identity, fake SS, DL, Visas etc and millions of people in America are behind them, we are sick. This is a product of 40 years of mind boggling misinformation being taught in our schools from kindergarten up to college.

    Trump tried to remedy this and he was shot down, by of all branches the Judiciary. Unlawfully, Politically and totally out of the bounds of their Constitutional job description. Yes Christians are being slaughtered in what the UN finally decreed a genocide. But tell that to the Judiciary Branch.

    29.7 Undermining Republican Government

    “At the establishment of our Constitutions, the judiciary bodies were supposed to
    be the most helpless and harmless members of the government. Experience, however, soon
    showed in what way they were to become the most dangerous; that the insufficiency of the
    means provided for their removal gave them a freehold and irresponsibility in office; that
    their decisions, seeming to concern individual suitors only, pass silent and unheeded by
    the public at large; that these decisions nevertheless become law by precedent, sapping by
    little and little the foundations of the Constitution and working its change by
    construction before any one has perceived that that invisible and helpless worm has been
    busily employed in consuming its substance. In truth, man is not made to be trusted for
    life if secured against all liability to account.” –Thomas Jefferson to A. Coray,
    1823. ME 15:486

    “This member of the government… has proved that the power of declaring what the
    law is, ad libitum, by sapping and mining, slyly, and without alarm, the
    foundations of the Constitution, can do what open force would not dare to attempt.”
    –Thomas Jefferson to Edward Livingston, 1825. ME 16:114

    “I do not charge the judges with wilful and ill-intentioned error; but honest
    error must be arrested where its toleration leads to public ruin. As for the safety of
    society, we commit honest maniacs to Bedlam; so judges should be withdrawn from their
    bench whose erroneous biases are leading us to dissolution. It may, indeed, injure them in
    fame or in fortune; but it saves the republic, which is the first and supreme law.”
    –Thomas Jefferson: Autobiography, 1821. ME 1:122

    “If, indeed, a judge goes against the law so grossly, so palpably, as no imputable
    degree of folly can account for, and nothing but corruption, malice or wilful wrong can
    explain, and especially if circumstances prove such motives, he may be punished for the
    corruption, the malice, the wilful wrong; but not for the error: nor is he liable to
    action by the party grieved. And our form of government constituting its respective
    functionaries judges of the law which is to guide their decisions, places all within the
    same reason, under the safeguard of the same rule.” –Thomas Jefferson: Batture at
    New Orleans, 1812. ME 18:130

    “One single object… [will merit] the endless gratitude of society: that of
    restraining the judges from usurping legislation. And with no body of men is this
    restraint more wanting than with the judges of what is commonly called our General
    Government, but what I call our foreign department.” –Thomas Jefferson to Edward
    Livingston, 1825. ME 16:113
