I love being a father. At the ripe age of 43, I find myself married and father to three of the greatest kids in the world; most of the time. My oldest is just under 16 and rules the roost as he is learning to drive and stretching his wings before he starts to take flight. My middle is as complex and full of joy and love that any new teenager can be and she brightens my day. My youngest, however, is adorable and every inch that his father is. Unfortunately that last bit is both good and bad. I am have an obnoxious streak in me and tend to live with a bit of a selfish side.

Today, Jeff Sessions stated in his press conference the following for a justification of splitting families up for those who are illegally in our country:
"I would cite you to the Apostle Paul and his clear and wise command in Romans 13 to obey the laws of the government because God has ordained the government for his purposes," Sessions said. "Orderly and lawful processes are good in themselves. Consistent, fair application of law is in itself a good and moral thing and that protects the weak, it protects the lawful. Our policies that can result in short-term separation of families are not unusual or unjustified."
This 'justification' has been used many times over, but with Sessions now citing it, the coverage has gone through the roof.
