Separations not biblical

To the editor:

Family separations at the border are neither humane nor biblical.

To quote Edmund Burke: “It is not what a lawyer tells me I may do; but what humanity, reason, and justice tell me I ought to do.”

As Jesus told the pharisees in quoting Isiah: “These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me; in vain do they worship me, teaching precepts as doctrines.”

What is happening at that border is definitely not biblical as the evangelical seem to say.
