Shaming Christians about illegal immigration

By George Rodriguez, El Conservador

(2/12/18) California Democrat Congressman Ted Lieu hosted a town hall in Hermosa Beach last week, and quoted the Bible in defense of the Dreamers saying, "For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in." (Matthew 25:35). 

Very well... then take them into your home, and you clothe and feed them! Typical of Saul Alinsky activists who try to use Bible scripture to shame Christians, Cong. Lieu misinterpreted and bent the scriptures to fit his agenda and arguments. 

It's ironic that somehow he ignores traditional marriage in those same scriptures. Even more ironic, is the fact that Democrats protest loud against the "mixing of government and religion", but they have no problem in using this scripture as a foundation for political arguments when it's convenient.   

Personal free agency is a key part of Christian belief, and of any free people. Like forced government taxation for social programs versus voluntary personal charity, any form of amnesty for illegal aliens imposed by our government on us, is not voluntary. 

As I have said before, we cannot excuse or reward illegal immigration for anyone including for children who entered the country illegally. Furthermore, we cannot let our nation become the orphanage to the world where the children of all nations enter illegally to be raised by citizens. Bad and illegal behavior should not be excused or rewarded.
