Illogical conclusions are Cort’s forte. You can see them drawn above in reference to raising sons.
This link expresses concern about Islamic terrorism, specific to threats against the Basilica of San Petronio, in Bologna, Italy. There is a fresco of Dante’s “Inferno” which depicts an image of The Prophet Muhammad being dragged of to hell. There are very real threats made against this holy site, and Italians should protect it vigilantly, like all works of precious art and historical building of religious significance.

My issue is with the last sentence of the piece, and what immigration has to do with terrorism, the preservation of holy sites, or anything else.

And this article makes the argument we hear ad nauseum, attempting to conflate criminal behavior with immigration status. It’s fanning xenophobic flames shamelessly and this type of writing needs to stop.
