After reading several comments I would like to add my own observation. This event isn't about conservatives vs. liberals both are adding to this heated conversation but where does basic human kindness and compassion begin regarding this small child whom most likely doesn't care or even understand the workings of rules or laws. Those in the audience that clapped at Mr. DesJarlais are on the same burner as those that allowed this child to be used as a political weapon. Mr. DesJarlais replied what his base wanted to hear not what was in the best interest of the child. Her father may very well be deported I am not arguing about that issue. If he broke the law then that is a risk he took. This is what is wrong with both liberals and conservatives showing no common sense, compassion or empathy. Both parties seek examples to boost there own agenda yet Mr. Desjarlais could of allowed this child to ask but then offering to answer her question in private even if it was not the answer she wanted to hear. Mr. Desjarlais had an opportunity to change the perception that many have by just taking a few moments to not hurt a child more. This child will face a terrible burden anyway. Also, whom ever thought it was appropriate to allow this child to speak or ask such a personal and heart rendering question is also equally at fault. She was basically put up as a poster child and now this video clip is being streamed across the internet to make a point. Why is responding without any show of concern to already hurting child acceptable? Plus, why is allowing this child to be placed in such a difficult position allowed? Shame on any and all that were involved in this political ploy.
Being young and a teenager is a risk all by itself so what other acts would need to be reported to a parent;"I sent a love note to another teen? Well we know where that can lead young love..sex...baby. Oh, I ran down all the stairs in school that might of caused injury if I fell. Does require my parents to be notified? Plain old stupidity!
My idea of Christianity is where Jesus invited all the poor, all the sick, all the needy the other people in society that were judged or considered un-desirable if you believe in Him. You were accepted into His kingdom. I would think allowing gays or any other group in would open the discussion of the true meaning of Love. You do not have to approve of the thief, or the murder but you are called to LOVE all of them so turning away gays for any reason is not based on the foundations of Christ.
