This one is actually pretty simple. Difficult to swallow, but simple.
If a head of state asks “Christian, how do you feel about housing Syrian refugees?”, our answer ought to be “I will gladly lay down my life for theirs!”
If a head of state says “I compel you to house a refugee!”, we should offer to take two.
If you are a head of state, however, you must worry about a vast array of things, including the safety of your citizens, the integrity of your economy, the security of your borders…
I don’t think this last part is being done, which makes the first two much more bitter pills to swallow.
But that doesn’t excuse us.
