The media is freaking out about that too.
The New York Times claimed in a head that most Christian leaders oppose this:
Christian Leaders Denounce Trump’s Plan to Favor Christian ImmigrantsSo much for the facade of religious freedom in the media's support of Muslims.
Buried in the New York Times was a partial quote from the Rev. Franklin Graham, the son of the evangelist Billy Graham and the president of Samaritan’s Purse, an evangelical aid organization.
Not trusting a partial quote, I dug out the full quote.
From the Charlotte Observer:
“Samaritan’s Purse is working every day to help refugees in many different areas around the world. For example, just outside Mosul, Samaritan’s Purse has set up a 54-bed emergency field trauma hospital to treat those wounded and fleeing Mosul in the conflict with ISIS.
“Our medical teams are there working 24-7 to help save lives – they’re treating men, women and children every day. We’ve been helping in Iraq for more than 20 years. We’re providing food, heaters, medicine and other relief supplies to Syrian refugees in northern Iraq.
“We’re working in Greece to provide clothing, heaters and other winter supplies to refugees who have fled there from Africa, Asia and the Middle East.
“As it relates to the United States,” Graham said, “I believe that all people coming from other countries need to be completely vetted. We need to be sure their philosophies related to freedom and liberty are in line with ours. Sharia law, for instance, is ultimately incompatible with the Constitution of this nation.
“I support safe zones in the countries where refugees can flee and find protection. This is much safer than them trying to cross the sea, risking their lives. Let’s take the help to them.”This was in response to a request by the Observer for comment.
That's called journalism, which is becoming all too rare when covering national politics.
Please read "Trump the Press," in which I skewer media experts who wrongly predicted Trump would lose the Republican nomination. "Trump the Press" is available as a paperback, and on Kindle.
It covers the nomination process only. The general election is covered in a sequel, "Trump the Establishment," which will be published in paperback on February 7.
