    A question about the Syrian refugees...

    I want to make myself abundantly clear. This question is not directed at Goofball, Thor, excalibur, or any of the other advocates on the Right who insist that we keep out all Syrian refugees, period. End of position. No exceptions. Your position is, at least, consistent. I don't agree with it, but it is consistent.

    My question is actually to @aboutenough, @carpe diem, @ptif219, and others who suggest, that allowing the Christian Syrians over here would be oakay.

    How do you know? I just saw this meme on Facebook:



    Forget the jab at republicans. Let's concentrate on just that first. Statement: "Syrian refugees could easily pretend to be Christians," Why couldn't they? I mean, your entire argument is that we shouldn't be letting the Muslim Syrian refugees into the country, because we have no reliable method of vetting them to be certain they are what they claim to be, and are not "secret ISIS agents" sent here to fuck us up the ass. Then, with the very next breath, you are insisting that it would be okay to let the Christian Syrians in, because they're "good guys".

    Uh...how do you know? How do you know that any given Syrian is a Christian? Just because they say so? If that's the case, then why shouldn't that be just as okay with the Muslim refugees who are not ISIS members, just because they say so?

    Your position seems to be...unstable, at best. Perhaps one of you could come, and clarify it for us...
    Thanks from the watchman and Babba

    The Super-D-Duper Obama vetting process would find that out in a New York second. Nothing can get thru that system.

    Next?

    Poor Czerno trapped himself here. He has been arguing about how iron clad the vetting process is and how we would know everything about any refugee's past before we let them in.

    And then he posts about how some radical ISIS fighter could just claim he is a Christian and that would stump the system.

    Actually, no. He's asking people who make YOUR side of the argument how they reconcile their twisted thinking. The diversionary response is no surprise.

    Except that trap works both ways - at least for those who insist that "Christians would be okay to let in". That's why I specifically excluded you from this subject - you are, at least, consistent. I don't agree with you, but you are consistent.

    The "The Christians are okay" folks are not consistent: "We must keep all the Muslims out, because we have no way to properly vet them, but the self-proclaimed "Christian" Syrians can come, even though there's...no...way...to..."
    Wait a minute!!! There seems to be something wrong with this picture...

    Related" TX dropped it's request for a restraining order after some more information was giving on the refugees from the feds.

    The intel on them must have seemed legit. They are coming in.

    They will recover just fine, Spookycolt.

    While you guys are patting yourselves on the back, and congratulating yourselves on how clever you are, I notice that no one seems interested in clarifying this inconsistency that many of your fellows seem to be exhibiting, or even acknowledging that it is, in fact, an inconsistency.
