Rick Perry Needs To Take Morality Lessons From Deval Patrick

up

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.
