    James Dobson says media is not 'truthful' in reporting on migrant detention centers

    (Sic)"...
    According to Dobson, only 10 percent of the detainees are Mexicans, while migrants from over 127 countries have come to the southern border this year alone.

    “They speak their native tongues, which means they can’t be understood by each other or the staff. What are we to do with them? The Mexican government will not take them back, and there is no place to send them,” he explained. “Our current laws do not permit us to repatriate them to their country of origin. This is a disaster with no solution or projected conclusion.”

    Dobson stressed that many migrants and asylum seekers sell their possessions to pay “coyotes” to guide them into the country. "

    Thank God for Christian reporting sites.
    God bless America, President Trump, VP Pence and their families. :praying:

    Dobson is doing a marvelous job in destroying the term evangelical as meaning anything more than delusional narrcisists. Keep up the good work James, it most certainly will become extinct.

    Whats exciting though, that something resembling authentic will emerge!! I would explain that, but how is an evangelical suppose to understand something its not!

    You've already explained you didn't read the article.
    What's rewarding in a screed like that is it is the evidence for the other thread about the anti-religious. So thanks.

    It is relevant. It is proof that he is not a rational voice and shouldn't be trusted

    It appears that Dobson is very confused about what the media is reporting. I keep hearing that most of the refugees come from other Hispanic countries such as Guatemala. Or is he forgetting The much told story of the migrant train (actually a train full of refugees more than migrants).

    This coming from someone who identifies as the oxymoron, christian atheist. That's irrational. Join an atheist forum and tell them you're a christian atheist on the new member introduction board and see how you are received.

    What atheists don't seem to realize is the bible is full of judgments levied by God upon people who are his own, or who are not and are sinful. Dobson is referring to those scriptures and opining what is happening in America is due to his judgment upon us for falling away from righteousness. Entirely his opinion that he's entitled to. Wrong or right.
    However, if you're going to derail the thread with an old news bit about Dobson at least don't be so lazy as to not look for his actual remarks. Which aren't what you claimed.

    Still haven't read the article I see. And thanks again. That's two examples, along with the christian atheist, that sustain the anti-theist threads platform. Go for the hat trick.

    Actually, by international law, they're illegal aliens. Not refugees.
    Calling illegal aliens migrants is like calling a carjacker a member of the car pool.

    Here folks is James Dobson on refugees:

    What I’ve told you is only a glimpse of what is occurring on the nation’s border. I don’t know what it will take to change the circumstances. I can only report that without an overhaul of the law and the allocation of resources, millions of illegal immigrants will continue flooding to this great land from around the world. Many of them have no marketable skills. They are illiterate and unhealthy. Some are violent criminals. Their numbers will soon overwhelm the culture as we have known it, and it could bankrupt the nation. America has been a wonderfully generous and caring country since its founding. That is our Christian nature. But in this instance, we have met a worldwide wave of poverty that will take us down if we don’t deal with it. And it won’t take long for the inevitable consequences to happen.

    Now here is what the Bible has to say on the same subject:

    I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me.
    Matthew 25:35


    Truly I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of my brethren you did it to me.
    Matthew 25:40


    Contribute to the needs of the saints; extend hospitality to strangers.
    Romans 12:13


    Love does no wrong to a neighbor, therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.
    Romans 13:10


    Let mutual love continue. Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by doing that some have entertained angels without knowing it. Remember those who are in prison, as though you were in prison with them; those who are being tortured, as though you yourselves were being tortured.
    Hebrews 13:1-3


    Beloved, you do faithfully whatever you do for the friends, even though they are strangers to you; they have testified to your love before the church. You do well to send them on in a manner worthy of God; for they began their journey for the sake of Christ, accepting no support from non-believers. Therefore we ought to support such people, so that they may become co-workers with the truth.
    3 John 1:5

    Then I will draw near to you for judgment. I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, against the adulterers, against those who swear falsely, against those who oppress the hired worker in his wages, the widow and the fatherless, against those who thrust aside the sojourner, and do not fear me, says the Lord of hosts.
    Malachi 3:5

    You shall not wrong a sojourner or oppress him, for you were sojourners in the land of Egypt.

    Then misrepresenting what someone actually said makes the remark incredible.
    Thanks.

    The Lord watches over the sojourners; he upholds the widow and the fatherless, but the way of the wicked he brings to ruin.
