October has been a very busy month for me. I did a concert of Christian music and a series of Bible studies for a church. While engaged in the latter the discussion turned to the moral, ethical, and spiritual disintegration of America.
One lady stated that she recently told her grandchildren, who are now in early adulthood, that America would never be like it was while they were growing up.
When pressed to explain further, she stated that everything that has undergirded the nation from its founding has been eroding away and is now almost gone entirely.
And then came the clincher. She stated, "White Christian evangelicals will be a tiny minority. Christianity itself will fade as the dominant force in the culture as Islam takes hold. And as for our founding principles, the nation will be overrun with immigrants who are neither aware of nor cherish the Constitution and the rights it protects."
True. Very true.
Within one generation, two at the most, the vestiges of what remains of our Judeo-Christian culture will be a thing of the past. The people we are letting into the country do not value it. Further, Constitutional principles based on small government and liberties that cannot be removed by majority vote are held up to outright disdain.
The fact that certain sectors of Christianity, within the Catholic Church and among some evangelicals as well, encourages amnesty for those who are here illegally is a travesty of Christianity. Nothing good can come of it. When the first act of a person who wants to live here is to break our laws, how can giving haven and sanctuary to them be to anyone's benefit except the lawless?
The Church in the United States is a disgrace on so many levels. This is one of them.
Why do I make so much of this issue today? Because Barack Obama and the progressives/collectivists in the Democratic and Republican Parties have turned their attention to "immigration reform" now that they have continued to ruin the American economy by sending us deeper into debt.
"Immigration reform" is merely a nice sounding euphemism for amnesty, giving a pass to certain people who have broken the law.
Obama and his minions have found a treasure trove of votes among illegal aliens. At least 11 million. Others place such estimates at 20 million or more.
In my moral and ethical system, people who are allowed to push to the front of the line waiting for citizenship are cheaters. What about those obeying our laws and patiently waiting their turn? They are slapped in the face by our own government. Lawbreakers are given preference.
This is unethical, immoral, illegal, and a disgrace to all that is good, right, and honorable.
And any government that condones it, including our own, has lost its moral authority to govern. The Framers stated that citizens are not required to obey any law passed by a government that has lost that moral authority. And in so many ways this government has done exactly that on a myriad of issues.
The borders need to be closed. Now. No more immigration at all for at least two years so that new laws can be formulated that put a stop to the illegal aggression of those who have an ulterior motive for wanting to live here.
And as for politicians who want them here just so they can get their votes, such politicians are beneath contempt and should be run out of office on a rail.
Any state or municipality that gives sanctuary to illegal aliens is living in a state of lawlessness and should be punished with the full force of the law. Yet these very same areas give them drivers' licenses, food stamps, welfare, free healthcare, free education, and a vote. I'll give you two guesses as to who most of them vote for, and the first one doesn't count.
Persons who have no respect for our laws have no respect for our Constitution, either. So, it is no wonder they vote for the perpetrators of lawlessness like Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Barbara Boxer, Dianne Feinstein, and others who encourage such disregard for the rule of law.
Thus, Americans should block any attempt at this kind of so-called "immigration reform." Just tell Obama no, period. And as for members of Congress who press for this lawlessness, a pox on them all. Be gone!
