“Justice, humanity, and sound policy. We better work on repairing our foundation before it can’t be put back together!” – #ToddCPittman
Yep, I Said It!
. . . and so did Exodus 22:21 (NLT) – You must not mistreat or oppress foreigners in any way. Remember, you yourselves were once foreigners in the land of Egypt.
“Man oh man, we’ve got to get it together. As individuals, we collectively make up a family called God’s children. I could be wrong but I believe the Father of our family has an expectation of us to care for each other. I mean, after all, there are two great commandments that the others are founded on and that is to love God with all our heart and love others as we love ourself. But there’s no doubt in my mind it seems we’ve slipped off that foundation. Here it is 2020 and in this beautiful nation called the United States of America, we are still not embracing the reality that if we live here we live in a country that was built up over time by foreigners, slaves, immigrants, refugees, and other strangers to a land that was once solely occupied by indigenous Americans. Man, we’ve got to strengthen our foundation because the oppression, the mistreatment, and the lack of humanity for those not born in the United States is beyond living with a lack of focus, it is now living lost in the midst of a worldwide pandemic. Let’s think back to the biblical command that foreigners were not only to be tolerated but to be received with full protection. Now think about all the folk suffering right now and don’t know where their next meal is coming from and today we start to consider a proposal – the HEALS Act – that will decrease the support of families in need by 67% but turn around and allocate $1.75 Billion – BILLION – to build a new FBI building. That my family is an example of an eroding foundation when it comes to the prioritization of our moral responsibilities.” – #ToddCPittman
