This is how the Trump administration has justified its shocking "zero tolerance" immigration policy that has resulted in over 2,000 children being forcibly separated from their parents in just six weeks. It's also the rationale for the new executive order: that the law must be changed in order for families not to be torn apart.

I tweeted this invitation and request upon hearing Attorney General Jeff Sessions cite the Bible, Romans 13, to defend the administration's zero tolerance, deterrence policy that detains and separates undocumented minors from their parents at the U.S. border. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders supported his biblical justification by saying: "I can say that it is very biblical to enforce the law...It's a moral policy to follow and enforce the law."

On an ordinary day in America, it would be a great scandal when the nation's top lawyer and the president's liaison to the press both seem to be blissfully unaware that the United States is a pluralistic democracy that advocates separation of church and state and is bound by the Constitution which features the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment that prohibits the establishment of religion by the government. But in the ever decaying, deepening, moral abyss that is the Trump administration, this is just another forgettable warm up act before the new horror show of the week.
