Saturday on MSNBC, Rev. Dr. Jacqui Lewis, the Senior Minister of Middle Collegiate Church, reacted to the response of “so-called Christians” who only want other Christians to come to the United States, saying they are “mocking” the story of Jesus, who she called a refugee.
“With these so-called Christian people saying that, you know, ‘We should close our borders except for anybody who’s a Christian,’ they’re sort of mocking the faith of the Jewish rabbi who was born in a stable and who himself was a refugee. You know the story.”
Lewis then later brought up Dylann Roof’s shooting of eight church goers in a Charleston, SC church, asking if we should “round up all the 22-year-olds and deport them.”
“Here’s what we know to be true. We know a Lutheran, so-called Christian kid, 22-years-old, took a rifle, went and sat in a church in Charleston; killed the pastor and eight congregants. We know that happened. That’s terrorism. Are we going to round up all the 22-year-old Christians and deport them?”
