Adrienne Bailon Houghton, mainstream TV host and wife of worship leader Israel Houghton, recently used Old Testament scripture to encourage others to pray for the world after President Donald Trump’s executive order to temporarily ban refugees from the United States.
“The Real” co-host took to Instagram to share a video of an Iranian-American in tears as he waited for his brother at Los Angeles International Airport but later found out that his brother would be sent back to Iran.
She captioned the video with the scripture verse found in Leviticus 19:33-34 which says, “When a foreigner resides among you in your land, do not mistreat them. The foreigner residing among you must be treated as your native-born. Love them as yourself, for you were foreigners in Egypt. I am the Lord your God.”
She added, “My heart breaks watching this video. Pray for our country. Pray for the world.”
Thousands of protesters across the nation have rallied together to voice their disapproval of Trump’s order, signed last week, that halts the United States’ entire refugee resettlement program for 120 days.
Many of Bailon Houghton’s Instagram followers were touched by the video she posted. Some, however, called her a hypocrite for taking notice of the scripture in Leviticus but not the agreeing with the scripture in the same book that calls homosexuality an abomination.
