Controversial billboard scripturally correct

NC pastors' billboardA North Carolina-based Christian apologist is praising the decision by a pastors group to erect a billboard supporting President Donald Trump's highly controversial travel ban.

The billboard (right) is on I-40 in Catawba County near Claremont, North Carolina. The North Carolina Pastors Network paid for the billboard and wrote on its website: "The West must come to grips with the absolute fact that untold millions of Muslims around the world really believe that their religion instructs them to fight armed jihad against all non-Muslims."

But a Charlotte television station found several people who actually complained about the message, including one individual who said: "I'm perfectly willing for people who are hostile to us, to be in our country, because that's what loving your enemy is all about."

Christian apologist and educator Dr. Alex McFarland says Christianity doesn't mandate that America have irresponsible open border immigration policies – and he argues that those who advocate for such don't know what they're talking about.

"Those who play the Christian card and say it's unloving to have consistent, responsible immigration policies; [those who say] it's un-Christian to vet out potential terrorists and those who would migrate here from terrorist nations – they don't understand theology or politics," he tells OneNewsNow.

"The terrorists hate America because we've sided with Israel so often. They hate America because they believe we're infidels. They want us dead!"

McFarland adds: "I thank God for our president who said either we have a country or we don't."

Last week, the Trump administration asked the U.S. Supreme Court to uphold the constitutionality of his executive order that has been thus far blocked by lower court judges who argue it's a "Muslim ban," not a "travel ban."
