NOTR - Jesuits, Evangelicals & Immigration - 2.17.18


Chris discusses a new story about a collection of female evangelicals who appear in a video titled "I was a stranger" based on a reading of Matthew 25:31-46.  The video suggests that to reject immigrants (legal or illegal) is to be guilty of not welcoming the stranger, as Jesus commands to do.  Interestingly, this same approach is used by the Jesuit Order in their America Magazine, where in 2017 they made the same argument with an article titled, "I was a stranger and you did not welcome me."  They also make reference to the journey of Mary and Joseph going to Bethlehem before the birth of Christ -- but did they arrive as illegal aliens?  Or were they actually obeying the laws of the government at that time?  And what does it really mean to be a stranger in the context of Matthew 25?
