This is so beautiful. We need to treat our neighbors with kindness and compassion, as the good book says.

Someone needs to lead a prayer group to stop all the stealing and corruption in Mexico. Used that money to pay their people a decent wage sand quit stealing from their own people and we wouldn't have this immigration reform in this country. Go over to Juarez side or the river a speak your peace you stupid fools. Its not the United States fault is Mexico's fault. Open your eyes and tell them.

You sound like one hell of a piece of work. Where's your sense of compassion and humanity? You need some damned religion. After I became pious, I stopped being bitter and started loving my fellow man. You could do with some churchgoing. Hell, you can come with me if you like or go to whatever damn church you prefer.

Religion has killed more people then anything in history. Right now it separates people as they tend to flock together, and not speak to people of other religious beliefs. It is like a competition to have the best religion, and the only religion that believes in god, or that God will accept. Ask anyone in their religion and they will tell you have the true church and religion.

Compassion is the important thing in this issue. How can one not have compassion. But you cannot force compassion with religion down someones throat. It is obvious that the prayer services need to be directed toward Mexico. That is where the people are trying to get out of, and the reason they are wanting other people to pull their weight. Direct this where it belongs. It is alright for all people to have passion in the world. But the USA has to deal with it's own problems, and not have other people, from other countries try and jam it down their throats. The kind of compassion these people want comes with a invoice attached.

Venable. How many people are you willing to let in your house and take care of? I bet none. But you want everyone else to do it. It should be voluntary and the American people donate more then Mexico or any other countries to help. So to ask for more is flat out begging, and pushing an agenda.

I loathe you, you hypocritical, judgmental piece of filth. No prayers are to be directed towards Mexico ever, not even once. Only a total tool and dufus would suggest such an unfounded thing. All prayers must be directed towards God. If I wasn't so damned pious, I would call you the most vulgar names imaginable.

You sure sound like a religious person, lol. I know where the stupidity lies, and it is in people like you. You do not even practice what you preach, lol. Unless you are just a troll. The same way you spew your hate is the reason why so many religions spew their hate towards others. You just made a living example out of yourself as to what religion can do for a man. Now do like I do, and help the poor where they live. I will bet I have done more physically in one week to help the poor in Mexico, then you have done in all your life. It is much easier to put out a prayer then actually do something to help your brothers.

Hell, my people come from Sweden so I don't have any brothers in Mexico. I do have a couple of children, but they live in Cabo and not in Juarez. I found out the hard way how too much tequila can come back to bite you in the butt. I do send them a birthday present each year, though, and I did go to visit them with my new girlfriend over Christmas. She looks great in a bikini so we all went to the beach and had one hell of a time. Anyway, best of luck to you in your crusade. I didn't come here to argue with anyone and now I have to leave because I'm going to a prayer meeting then meeting my friends at Kings X for a nightcap.

I will be praying that all illegals be denied all social services that are afforded to all Americans who are in need. You're welcome to take on the jobs that lazy azz Americans do not want but keep your grubby hands off of the social programs.

What I do not understand is that if they are praying to God, as Max says. Then why do they need to do it at the fence. Will God not listen to them in their church. It is a publicity stunt. They are not praying to God it appears. They are trying to play on the hearts and minds of the people they want to do something. I know people in Mexico. Rich people that are donating money to help the poor. Philanthropists that are willing to work for a better Mexico. They are hands on people, and they may pray, but they are actually doing something here and not making a spectacle of themselves. Help the people "in Mexico" and quit causing them to want to leave their country. Get your church groups to come here and do something in Mexico.
