Is anyone as appalled as I am about the flagrant mistreatment of the Hispanic community in Robertson County? When did hate become justified? Law enforcement is required to do just that; enforce the law but should the officers be allowed to handle fellow human beings in a rough and inhumane way. Should we allow racial slurs and open hate language to go unchecked? Should we sit idly by on the sidelines and proclaim that it’s “someone else’s problem” since they’re not of the same race?
But oddly enough, it’s only the business community that seems saddened by the exodus of the Hispanics being since they make up a large part of the local economy. What is the church’s response to this?“Follow the law of the land” is what I hear but it seems that if the early Christians had just followed the law of the land then there would have been no Gospel preached (since it was illegal). MLK stated that any gospel that doesn’t deal with social ills is a “dry as dust” religion. Has dry as dust lip service religion become so commonplace that we no longer feel when another of God’s creation is in trouble? All I know is that it seems a shame that folks would ostracize and minimize a community of people because they no longer have a monetary resource. Our rituals and customs mean nothing if we cannot feed the hungry and clothe the naked.

How about I pick out 10 people in my county living illegaly and send them to your house for a year and you can foot the bill instead of me?
