Amen

Amen. Our burden as Christians in the United States is heavy but also, as Jesus said, the yoke is light. We must weigh our options and, with God's help, discern which steps are most important.

Tough spot.

"That gives us plenty of time for feeding the hungry, giving drink to the thirsty, ransoming the captive and so on. That’s what’s really important."

"How could Jesus counsel his followers to turn the other cheek if struck by their Roman overlords? To carry a soldier’s gear an extra mile when compelled to fulfill the law that said subjugated peoples must carry that gear for a mile? Most of all, Jesus said to love one’s enemies? How can we love or even pity public officials that inflict imprisonment, family separation and emotional trauma to children?"

You seem to see the disconnect between your actions and Jesus' instruction, but you seem very comfortable just continuing to do what you've been doing.
