No matter what side of the fence you sit, I think its been made abundantly clear: The children need help. As soon as I am able, I'm donating.

The Humanist Crisis Response Program is a joint effort of two humanist organizations, Foundation Beyond Belief, and the American Humanist Association

"We dug into it and researched the issue; it turned out the issue of legal representation was a much more serious priority," McGowan says. "Over three-quarters of kids entering unaccompanied by an adult are without representation. It's really a terrifying situation."

McGowan sees little controversy in the decision to get involved in this issue. Humanists have had a "pretty unified voice" on this issue, he says. This isn't about simply letting children across the border, he says. "Essentially what they are doing is providing these kids with as fair as possible of a hearing."

"No child should meet a national immigration system alone. KIND and the Florence Project are doing brilliant work to ensure that they are not alone, and the humanist community is proud to support them," McGowan says
If I were to create self aware beings knowing fully what they would do in their lifetimes, I sure wouldn't create a HELL for the majority of them to live in infinitely! That's not Love, that's sadistic. Therefore a truly loving god does not exist!

Quote:The sin is against an infinite being (God) unforgiven infinitely, therefore the punishment is infinite.

Dead wrong.  The actions of a finite being measured against an infinite one are infinitesimal and therefore merit infinitesimal punishment.

Quote:Some people deserve hell.

I say again:  No exceptions.  Punishment should be equal to the crime, not in excess of it.  As soon as the punishment is greater than the crime, the punisher is in the wrong.
