All the GOP candidates have come out against accepting Syrian refugees, but only because it might be a little too cold for them here.

    Let’s remove the terrorism aspect from the argument entirely.

    Where are you going to put all these refugees? Are all of you in favor of
    this going to house refugees in your homes? Are we just going to build
    refugee ghetto areas? Will they just live on the street or in tent cities?
    Who is going to pay for it? Can the economy sustain a large influx of
    displaced people? I imagine none of you want the U.S. to get involved in
    another Middle Eastern conflict, so I guess Syria will be abandoned. What
    are you going to do with all the refugees once the Syrian war is over? I
    assume many of you would condemn any politician asking for Syrians to
    return home in the future as racist and heartless. Is it racist to let
    refugees in on the condition that they assimilate to U.S. norms or are we
    to acquiesce to any and all requests by the refugees?

    I know you people are always chomping at the bit to condemn anyone as
    racist, islamophobic, whatever flavor of the week label you have, but this
    issue is more complicated than you all want to believe. I’m sorry it
    doesn’t lend itself to your world view, but some people are against this
    for legitimate reasons.

    Listen to me U.S: You break it, you buy it. You broke Iraq, you buy it.
    You’re working on breaking Syria for years, you’ll bet your fat american
    ass, that you’ll buy it and stop being so fucking astonished that there
    will be refugees fleeing all those terrorists that started thriving because
    of a fucking power vacuume that you left behind!!!!!

    So he discredits Syrian Christian refugees to make Muslims refugees look
    like better candidates? Yeah, no, he just made them both look bad.

    What business would a Christian from the Middle East have joining the KKK
    anyways and how did poking fun at their patriarch’s appearance help prove
    anything?

    This was just terribly done, I feel like he’s never even met a Syrian
    Christian before and now, no one will want to.

    Also he made it sound like those fleeing religious discrimination don’t
    matter when the fact of the matter is, Syrian Christians have been
    discriminated against their whole lives. Don’t get me wrong, Muslims are
    being persecuted as well and are seeking refuge, both Shia and Sunni, but
    why pretend like a Christian family from the Middle East is something to
    fear, that’s just stupid.

    lmao at conservative Christians who blatantly ignore the scripture about
    doing precisely the opposite of what they’re discussing regarding people
    trying to escape foreign lands. cognitive dissonance and admitting you
    follow a superficial cherry picked version OF, lets be clear, OF an
    antiquated belief system riddled with self contradictions must really suck.

    how did it get to this point in the first place? The terrorists said when
    they were attacking Libya that they would send their people along with the
    refugees to launch attacks. this is a known strategy of theirs and we are
    playing right into their hands. on purpose no doubt to take away guns and
    bring in martial law

    The grocery stores, at least here in the US, is usually filled with food.
    Also, we have a lot of houses and land for sale for people to live in. We
    live in abundance and we are able to share with any refugees that come. We
    are all family, we are all related. Thanksgiving is coming up shortly, so
    let’s be a little nicer to the less fortunate, ok?

    There is some logic in accepting Christa refugees first, because they are
    not safe in many of the local Muslim nations like the Muslim refugees would
    be. Of course those nations are not taking any refugees so it is not a
    viable solution.

    BS straw man argument from the liar Colbert. No one is saying not to help
    real refugees. There are other ways that don’t put our security at risk. We
    can help them move them to other stable Middle Eastern nations and it would
    cost less meaning we could save more people. Terrorists slipped into Paris
    posing as refugees, we can’t let it happen here.

    I can honestly say as a Christian that these presidents are in it purely
    for the right-wing votes. They are giving “Christian” answers, but I bet
    most don’t even know what the gospel is. Jesus commanded us to love our
    enemies and to do good to those who persecute us. Let the dang Syrians come
    to America and if they are terrorists they’ll have a chance to change their
    minds and see that blowing people up is not the way to go. Instead of
    locking them out we should, I don’t know, pray for them?

    The Christian-conservative opposition to foreigners in our country is
    especially concerning since from the Old Testament to the New, God tells
    Christians to accept and welcome aliens into their country AND to treat
    them well. Moreover, Christian theology teaches that Christians are
    “citizens of heaven” and “foreigners on earth”, which should make the
    thought of welcoming foreigners into their country a pretty easy
    transition. Pretty disturbing and hypocritical that this is not happening.
    Nice segment Stephen.

    For a cheap chuckle, Stephen Colbert ridicules a persecuted minority.
    Doesn’t get much lower than that.

    The premise to his satire is that “a guy like that” would not fit into
    American society any more than a Muslim cleric. What Colbert probably
    doesn’t know is that the Syriac Patriarch previously served as Archbishop
    of the Eastern United States for nearly two decades.

    He left the comfort and safety of the United States to answer a calling to
    serve where he’s needed most, in war-torn Syria.

    Moreover, since their first arrival in the United States (beginning over a
    century ago), Syriac Christians have integrated well, and continue to
    contribute to American society, and their local communities, as leaders in
    business, public service, medicine, and the arts.

    And to supply the answer that Jeb failed to provide: You can distinguish
    Christians buy looking at their Syrian government issued documentation, or
    documentation that they are members of a church.
