Could there be two more disparate responses to the border crisis than those from Governors Rick Perry and Deval Patrick? One governor grandstands for the cameras while pondering a run at the White House; the other explains his very personal and moral decision to offer shelter to children.
Both call themselves Christians but only one demonstrates what a Christian response looks like. Hint: it's not Rick Perry.
Watch him explain to citizens and the press why this isn't political. It's moral.
Here's the verse he quoted, from Leviticus 19:33-34, NIV: When a foreigner resides among you in your land, do not mistreat them. 34 The foreigner residing among you must be treated as your native-born. Love them as yourself, for you were foreigners in Egypt.
Someone should ask Rick Perry why he doesn't follow the Bible he thumps with such regularity.
