A Religious Liberal Blog

This site hopefully can provide some vehicle by which I can comment, complain, and once in a while praise the state of religion in this country and around the world from a liberal protestant perspective.

Immigration Quote

The Christian faith teaches that our common humanity is more important than our nationality. That all of us, ultimately, are strangers in this world and brothers to the bone; and all in need of amnesty. This belief does not dictate certain policies in a piece of legislation, but it does forbid rage and national chauvinism. And this is worth a reminder as well.

I don't think there is an issue here when it comes to immigration, honestly.

We want immigrants to come over! The "Great American Melting Pot," right? Duh!

The problem is when those immigrants decide they can short change the system the gurantees safety for our nation. We cannot overlook illegal actions in order to apease these people...not just because that in and of itself is wrong, but also because we are only dishonoring those that attempt to enter our country the correct way.
