Welcoming the Stranger: An immigration conversation at Vineyard Columbus

"The issue of comprehensive immigration reform is just about the only public policy issue on which there is great unanimity across the Christian spectrum," said Rich Nathan, senior pastor of the Vineyard Church of Columbus in 2010.

Nathan is way off base here.

There is no great support for so called immigration reform. These people are violating our laws, disrespecting our borders and bringing in diseases like bed bugs and shigellosis that are now rampant in our city endangering our children, public health and economic growth by the suppression of wages.

This statement is as ludicrous and irresponsible as welcoming your good friend - confirmed sexual predator (Steve Robbins)back in your fellowship, exposing vulnerable sheep to this wolf. Keep a close eye on Robbins and your nose out of politics.

I, for one, remember Nathan's well documented bashing of nationally syndicated columnist Cal Thomas for criticism of the "faith" of serial adulterer Jonathan Edwards. Once again Nathan's opinion on a political matter was extremely warped and Edwards was exposed as a fraud, proving Cal Thomas was right in his assessment and that Nathan was wrong to vouch for Edwards.

Stay out of politics Rich!

Welcoming the Stranger is nothing more than liberal appeasement of law breakers based upon White Guilt Psychology that dictates that Whites always defer to non-Whites based on the sins of the antebellum South.

This will give the Democrat Party 9,000,000 and makes the liberals permanent dictators, ultimately transferring our hard gained earnings to criminals that don't respect our laws.

If you were to enter Mexico illegally you would be thrown into prison like Dog the Bounty Hunter.
