Nothing, not a common ethnicity, color, faith or anything else binds Americans closer together than being American citizens. Without sovereignty, there is no distinction of who is an American citizen and who is not. Without legally recognized borders there is no demarcation line that separates America from any other country (Mexico and Canada being the only two countries America borders). Without that demarcation line, anyone can walk into America, freely, unvetted, undocumented, unknowingly. Ironically, try walking out of America by that same route and see what happens.
Jim Wallis, always a liberal, very rarely an actual Christian, denounces Arizona’s SB1070 bill as blatantly un-Christian and counter to Christianity. And Christians like Wallis (who is more a counterfeit Christian), who preaches, ironically, Christianity to the same atheists, socialists and anti-Americans and anyone who actually despises Christianity as much as they despise America, spews his version of Christian rhetoric to these anti-Christians, enabling them to be even more militant and anti-Christian, and anti-American, much the same way a drug dealer enables a drug user to become more addicted to drugs. He writes in his “quick fix” for the Arianna Nation (HuffPost):
“It is our common faith commitment, not the color of our skin, that unite us on the need for comprehensive immigration reform and in opposition to patchwork punitive legislation like we have seen in states like Arizona and Alabama. At the core of our Christian commitment is to love our neighbors and to speak out for and defend vulnerable and marginalized people. The Bible shows a special concern for those it refers to as “the stranger,” what today we would call an immigrant. Because immigrants are often vulnerable to exploitation or discrimination, Christians should go out of their way to show both empathy and kindness to them as well as speak out for justice on their behalf. SB 1070 violates all of these principles and as a result families, churches and communities are being ripped apart. The goal of the legislation is to make life unbearable for undocumented people in an attempt to get them to “self-deport.” is unconscionable. It encourages mistrust and racial profiling through making anyone with brown skin or an accent automatically a suspect. And, it hurts Christian ministries that believe they should help those in need whether or not the needy can show their papers.”
One’s faith, and one – A Mexican – having the same faith an another – an American – does not make the Mexican an American any more than it makes the American a Mexican. These “strangers” as Wallis refers to illegal aliens being (and for which he misinterprets the Bible for being “migrants”) are people who have entered America illegally. The Bible does not in any way condone illegal immigration as the counterfeit Jim Wallis would have us believe. And if Wallis is so hell-bent on damning “legislation intentionally designed to increase the suffering of any of God’s children” as being “unconscionable” then he damn well ought to oppose Obamcare and any legislation that would seek to redistribute (steal) the wealth of one person and give it to government so government can redistribute a very small portion of that wealth (keeping the largest portion for themselves as a service fee) to everyone else in such a way that makes everyone equally poor and dependent on government. Of course conservatives would rather illegal aliens “self-deport” than have that cost deferred to the taxpayers in the sum of millions of dollars rounding up, processing, jailing, housing and feeding those illegal aliens, until they are deported forcefully by law. Nothing hurts Christianity more than counterfeit Christianity. And nothing hurts America more than weakening, destabilizing and removing its sovereignty. Do that, and just as with the brand of counterfeit Christianity being peddled by Jim Wallis, America, and what it means to be an American will be nothing more than – a joke.
