Ronnie, you must be from California and not the real world.

People should take a time to read the history of Islam. This religion is different from most religions that have ever existed. It has some of the most brutal and savage attitudes toward those who it conquered. There is in my view, an existential threat to anyone who differs from their sixth century worldview. Caution is a good thing. Ronnie your lack of historical knowledge disqualifies your comments in my opinion. The attached article is informative.

A little harsh here. I did not see the outrage that happened when Cuban refugees were not allowed here anymore because of the deal that Obama made with Cuba, or the ban that Obama had on the same 7 countries in 2011. Take a deep breath and calm yourself a bit. If you actually read the statement from the first presidency, they are very politically neutral and still say that people should actually take care of people in their own neighborhoods first.

I think the Church's press release was smart. It clarifies the Church's position without picking sides. I am dismayed at the ridiculous responses from some on this subject. We need to standup for those who are not in a position to protect them selves and we need to stand for the right. But, engaging in the Hitler rhetoric is counter productive and will negate any argument you might make.

It's not a blanket ban,'re just adding to the hysteria of the corrupt MSM.

First of all this is a temporary, not permanent, ban. Secondly, there is a difference between the relief of human suffering and protection of national interests. One should not, nor ever be, at the expense of the other.

The Islamic religion is totally against anything we hold dear in America. Kill all jews, kill all gays, sharia is the law of allah, the bible is false and if you don't convert to their religion it is ok to kill you. You live in a fantasy world to believe they will ever have our values.

Trump's blanket ban is inhuman. My thoughts are turned back to Hitler's assault on Jews because of his delusion that all Jews were part of an international conspiracy and that Aryans were the meister race. I'll none of it. Both men acted, they say, to preserve their national culture, but you do not have to be a genius to see the ploy and recognise that both leaders simply entertained delusions and both blamed a religion for what each has termed seeking harm to their nations. I hope and pray that it will not take the US citizenry as long as it took Germans to wake up to the idea that they hade been sold a bill of goods based solely on paranoid delusions that cost more blood than humanity could spare. Rach man put on a circus that pleased the most base of their nationals, and each instilled fear by demonising Jews and Muslims respectively. How many more must die before America wakes up and recognises they have been taken by a showman and find courage enough to stand and speak out boldly against prejudice, inhumanity, and return this nation that is founded on immigrants into the welcoming refuge for which purpose it was built by those of greater vision than the present incumbent. "Get thee up: be illuminated!" God help America.
