Hillary Clinton harshly decried the policy of separating illegal immigrant families in a speech delivered in New York Monday.
Clinton said President Trump was attempting to “stoke fear of immigrants” in his arguments for keeping the policies in place. Clinton then went on a rampage against the religious arguments for the policies, noting that she had “studied” the Bible and attended “Sunday School.”
“Nor are these policies rooted in religion,”she said, “In fact, those who selectively use the Bible to justify this cruelty are ignoring a central tenet of Christianity.”
Clinton then began rattling off her credentials as a Christian saying, “I went to a lot of years of Sunday school. I even taught it from time to time. I’ve studied the Bible, both the Old and the New testament,” Clinton said. “What is being done using the name of religion is contrary to everything I was ever taught. Jesus said, ‘Suffer the little children unto me.’ He did not say, ‘Let the children suffer.”
Attorney General Jeff Sessions said last week, “I would cite you to the Apostle Paul and his clear and wise command in Romans 13 to obey the laws of the government because God has ordained the government for his purposes. Orderly and lawful processes are good in themselves … and protect the weak and it protects the lawful.”
