BY RELEVANT CULTURE January 29, 2016

Bestselling author of books including Faults in Our Stars and Paper Towns (both of which have been adapted into films), John Green, recently tweeted his support for helping refugees, citing his own faith and the teachings of Jesus. He told his nearly 5 million followers that the “xenophobia I see online is horrifying,” along with a link to Matthew 25, in which Jesus praises those who help people in need.
