"Charity is commendable, everyone should be charitable. But Justice aims to create a social order in which, if individuals choose not to be charitable, people still don't go hungry, unschooled or sick without care. Charity depends on the vicissitudes of whim and personal wealth, justice depends on commitment instead of circumstance.
Faith-based charity provides crumbs from the table; faith-based justice offers a place at the table"

Piecing Together Donald Trump’s Nonsensical Plan To Ban Muslims

Piecing Together Donald Trump’s Nonsensical Plan To Ban Muslims

by Kira Lerner Dec 8, 2015

After Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump announced his proposal Monday to ban all Muslims from entering the United States, reporters and pundits were quick to criticize the plan, saying it would undermine national security and that it’s just really, really racist.

The plan would clearly be extremely problematic, not to mention illegal, if enacted. But indulging Trump, we took a look at how such a plan would actually work if Trump managed to win the presidency:
Who exactly is banned?

Trump’s original statement called for a “total and complete shutdown” of allowing Muslims into the United States, and according to Trump’s campaign, the billionaire real estate mogul is not messing around. “Everyone,” Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski told CNN said when asked if the ban would also apply to Muslim tourists. The campaign also told The Hill that the ban would include American Muslims currently abroad. How he plans to block U.S. citizens from returning to their homes was not immediately clear.

Trump did concede that Muslims currently living in the country could remain here. “I have Muslim friends, Greta, and they’re wonderful people,” he told Fox News anchor Greta Van Susteren. “It does not apply to people living in the country, except we have to be vigilant.”
