I believe the U.S. Should accept refugees after appropriate vetting, perhaps far more than we actually do. Priorities for refugees should be based on the actual risks and need of refugees. The US as part of international commitments may establish priorities refugees from a particular country or region based on broad over-arching issues (e.g., genocide, civil war, natural disaster). To prioritize a group based on religion, race, gender, disability, sexual orientation/identity, ethnicity, color, etc) must be based on special or unique higher risks for those individuals. So, if individuals of a particular religion are being targeted for execution or oppression in a specific country - then those individuals are at greater risk, and hence should receive higher priority than some other refugees from that country or region. However, given the complexity of this issue, it is entirely possible that people from that region may have different but equal risk (e.g., sexual orientation, ethnic minority, disability). So to arbitrarily establish a priority based on a specific religion even within a given country or region is inappropriate and may de-prioritize individuals who are at equal or greater risk. To favor one religion over another is simply an unacceptable bias if not considered against all other risks for individuals. Any argument that the U.S. should generally favor Christian refugees denies the real diversity and freedom of religion on which our country was found.
