At CNN’s GOP debate on December 15th, 2015, Donald Trump repeated his suggestion that a way to get ahead in the war on terror would be to kill the family members of our enemies. Apart from little details like the Geneva Convention, that raised some serious moral red flags for me as a Christian/human being with a family.
Fear can make well-intentioned, otherwise calm people advocate for some pretty crazy stuff.
