The following is part of a post I found on the blog “Floating Axehead“. Check it out:
“Ruben Navarette reports that Minutemen in San Diego are picketing and hurling insults at parishoners of St. Peter’s Catholic Church because the Priest is allowing the church to serve as a day laborer pickup site.”
I have always felt uneasy with the ‘Conservative Christian’ stand on immigration, illegal or otherwise, and this cartoon really sums it up for me. How can Christians possibly live in the wealthiest, most powerful nation in history (well, at least modern history) and not be willing to share what we have with the world’s poor who live right next door to us? Wouldn’t it be a fantastic witness if more Christian organizations would meet immigrants at the border, provide clean shelter and clothing, and help them get established in a Christian community so they don’t fall prey to drugs and violence?
