Sam Hall: Are we acting like a Christian nation?

Sometimes I think we in the U.S. fail to remember that we are not the center of the Christian universe. In fact, it could be said that we are too proud, too boastful and too judgmental. We are more akin to the apostles arguing over who is the greatest instead of being concerned with serving others.

Our leaders should ensure the refugee vetting process is as thorough as possible, but we should not close our borders to those in desperate need who are fleeing savages. Any pause in the program should not be used as a delay tactic. And we absolutely should not subjugate persons of a specific religion to a lower status solely because of their faith — whether that be denying them entrance allowed to others or forcing them into an ID program akin to what the Nazis did when they made Jews wear stars or branded them with numbers.
