Odds of dying in a terrorist attack for an American: 1 in 20 million. Odds of death by accidental discharge of a firearm: 1 in 514,000 (or 1 in 25,000 for deliberate firearm assault, if you’d like). And really, we need to protect you from your furniture – you stand the same odds as dying from your TV falling on you as you do from terrorism. Yet all these people worried about themselves/loved ones being killed by terrorists masquerading as refugees are also the same people that refuse ANY steps toward gun control. Which is fine – I hold no illusions about the US ever having gun control (unless Obama gets moving on his plan to take our guns), but don’t pretend you want to refuse refugees to “protect the children.” Even worse, if you profess to be a Christian and turn your back on people in need, how can you live with yourself?
Yes, there are some refugees that are going to be assholes. But what class/religion/race/nationality is exempt from that rule? If you only want to accept people that believe like you, look like you, speak like you, share your background – why not just stop pretending and admit your own cowardly selfishness? I can at least respect your honesty.

“And Jesus went forth, and saw a great multitude, and was moved with compassion toward them, and he healed their sick. Except those that might have been terrorists or came from countries were other terrorists might have come from, because screw those guys.” – Matthew 14:14, New American Version
