Re: 'Religiously Marching for Immigration'Topics: Immigration and Border Issues, Political News and commentaries
In regard to the "March for America," on the National Mall on Sunday March 21 for "Comprehensive Immigration Reform (CIR)," which included tens of thousands which included numerous religious groups, and was sponsored by immigrants groups and labor unions, as well as ACORN, CodePink, National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, the National Council of Churches, and the National Association of Evangelicals, Mark Tooley makes the following astute observation:
A recent commentary from an NAE official could just as easily have come from the National Council of Churches, romanticizing the "sojourner," and insisting that "those who welcome strangers are said to be entertaining angels." Religious immigration activists commonly identify biblical heroes as struggling immigrants, by implication supposedly having violated the immigration laws of ancient Israel or Egypt. "We see the hand of God in the movement of peoples throughout history," this NAE official proclaimed.Well said. Read more here ...
No doubt. But is God opposed to any lawful restrictions on immigration? Has God provided clear legislative guidance on the best immigration laws for the modern United States? Does Christian compassion compel disregard of or resistance to current immigration law? Few of the religious immigration marchers on Sunday seem to have answered these questions very seriously. (Emphasis added)
