Open letter to Senator Fielding re jailing&exporting refugees

I am sick of my religion being used to justify homophobia and xenophobia. The fundamental importance of Christianity to me is encapsulated in the parable of the Good Samaritan, which shows how a civilised person gives aid to the needy stranger, rather than just care selfishly for their own kin. Please, Senator Fielding, show your fellow Australians what a Christian really is, and shame to the hypocrites who spout pious while condemning children to jail.
