Right-wing radio show host and devout Christian Jesse Lee Peterson offered his interpretation of Mark 12:31, “Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these” when saying that activists who give water to migrants at the border should stop and “let them die out there,” the Friendly Atheist reports.
“You are helping illegals by encouraging them to come across the border,” he told a caller on his radio show. “You should let them die out there. You shouldn’t give water to illegal aliens; they’re breaking the law.”
Peterson, an African-American, conservative Christian man, routinely dedicates large portions of his segment to praise Donald Trump, who he calls the “Great White Hope.”
