This "church/cult" is exploiting illegal aliens by using this as a publicity stunt to increase membership.

this is great how these weak minded money hungry non tax paying organazations will do anything for a buck. they think this will increase their enrollment but it won't ! the next time theirs an attack on U.S. soil we can blame these idiots who are only looking to help themselves not others.
The Unitarian Universalist Congregation worships the dollar not GOD becareful of these B.S. cults.

Actually, it takes a lot of bravery to stand up for something that is in opposition to all of you- and the 'majority' of americans of faith. Having a rational discussion is something most of you na zis are incapable of, so to try and put your two cents in means little. You don't grasp the economic concepts behind why these people are here in the first place, so how in the world can you possibly come to the table with a proper solution?

If you always need to scapegoat someone for all the misery in your life, maybe you should get a new life. and if you think this was a publicity stunt to gain new members- think about how silly that sounds. They are putting out very unpopular views- who will go? You? I doubt it.

We are at WAR. When are our churchs going to be more worried about our safety then illegals.
Why are we spending tax money on illegals when we should be spending it on paying down our debt.

TOTAL BS!
The ONLY ones responsible for this is the ILLEGAL ALIENS themselves.
It is NO different than when any criminal is sent to jail and the families suffer from the bad CHOICES made by the offenders.
There is NOTHING 'failed' about our immigration system except lack of enforcement of our laws against these uninvited invaders who CHOOSE to thumb their noses at Americas laws.
anyone who repeats the tired mantra 'they thumb their noses at US laws' needs to wake up. There's a lot more to it than that. That's what you guys don't get- that this is actually a complex issue YEARS in the making. Boiling it down to one tidbit makes for simpleton arguments. That's no fun. Come up with something new, preferrably with substance.

The church won't be happy until we are living in 3rd world squalor ourselves. Shame on this church.

THAN illegals. not THEN illegals. Unless you meant they care about us first and then they care about illegals, in which case you would be correct.

We are spending no tax money on illegals- we are barely even covering the 'debt' you speak of. If we have money to hand out for NO GOOD REASON (120 billion of it, in fact) do you REALLY think anything we spend on illegals immigrants has any affect? WAKE UP.

oh, and if they were on the books, and they paid taxes, you wouldn't have anything to complain about in the first place. Why shoot yourself in the foot? they aren't going anywhere. They will soon be 'americans'.

Between 900,000 to one million immigrants enter the U.S. legally eqch year after having been vetted before receiving visas. Illegal immigrants are obviously not checked for health or criminal impediments. Other than breeding disrespect for the law, what are these churches accomplishing??

again, if the borders were sealed we wouldn't be having a discussion. Why do YOU think they have been left unguarded- especially since 9/11 "the day everything changed" aka, the day nothing changed. you think they care about public safety? All they want is cheap labor. And they get it.
