AmericanPride is a proud American and wishes the Native Americans had run us all off. Hmmm.

Rev. Clark is exactly right: the proposed legislation is unscriptural and immoral. It’s unscriptural by definition: it hurts immigrants even though the Bible says we are supposed to be kind to the alien, welcome the stranger, forgive trespasses, and love our neighbor. One might object that the Bible is morally demanding, and they’d be right. Nonetheless it says what it says.

The proposed legislation is immoral because it would hurt so many kids who haven’t done anything wrong and parents who have only done what so many of us would do if we were in their situation. What an awful choice they had between obeying the government or providing for their families! For so many immigrating legally is not an option. According to a recent John Stossel article, a Mexican high school graduate with a family has to wait over 100 years before he can come legally. So congratulations to La Lydia, whose family was able to come legally, and to all of us who were lucky enough to be born here, but can we not all do what the Bible says and have mercy on those who are not as fortunate as we are?

Thanks to Rev. Clark for standing on principle. Were more Christian leaders to do so, perhaps we could prevent another Trail of Tears out of Georgia.
