Since Donald Trump became president, the left has consistently invoked the phrase “Separation of Church and State” to denounce any involvement of Christian faith in government. When Melania Trump opened her speech in Melbourne, FL with the Lord’s Prayer of course, she received harsh criticism.
However, the left has always lived by the old, “do as I say, not as I do.” A fact proven by the movement to hide illegal immigrants dubbed the new “Underground Railroad.” Religious leaders across the Southeast and Northeast United States are buying homes and remodeling them to provide sanctuary to illegals eluding deportation.

Perhaps the left could find it convenient to extend their “love and compassion” to them?
Now, this is real compassion and honor, watch…
