God and Immigration Reform

Great Forum piece in today's USA Today entitled "God and Immigration Reform". You can read it HERE. I agree 100% with what the author, Richard Land, states. Here is a high-light:

People of faith should join to work for fair, just, comprehensive federal immigration reform that embodies the principles enunciated in the National Association of Evangelical's 2009 resolution, which proclaimed that any immigration reform legislation must:

•Respect the God-given dignity of every person

•Protect the unity of the immediate family

•Respect the rule of law

•Guarantee secure national borders

•Ensure fairness to taxpayers

•Establish a path toward legal status and/or citizenship for those who qualify and wish to become permanent residents.

Mr Land is the president of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission for the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC). I wouldn't call the SBC a liberal organization by any stretch of the imagination. You can read their stated beliefs HERE.

What a coincidence. I quoted Richard Land extensively on my blog today.

Actually, of the 20 or so news sites that I check out on a daily basis, one of them is theirs.
