Paul said do what you’re told

Sessions says it’s “Biblical” to treat migrants like criminals.

That’s a worthless attempt at justification, of course, because the bible says a lot of things and many of them are evil (and many of them contradict each other). It’s also insulting, because Trump himself is a serial criminal, in far more destructive ways than most immigrants, let alone their children.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions cited the Bible on Thursday in defending the Trump administration’s immigration policies — especially those that result in the separation of families — directing his remarks in particular to “church friends.”

“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,” Sessions said. “Orderly and lawful processes are good in themselves. Consistent, fair application of law is in itself a good and moral thing and that protects the weak, it protects the lawful. Our policies that can result in short-term separation of families are not unusual or unjustified.”

Then what’s he doing working for Trump?
