“Conservative” Christians for national suicide
A story on Sen. Brownback (for whom I recently expressed utter contempt) in the Washington Post, “A Conservative Crosses the Border,” says that he is “one of the most conservative senators,“ but not on illegal immigration:
Brownback, a Roman Catholic, says he approaches immigration from a humanitarian perspective and is unmoved by his colleagues’ criticism. [Excuse me, Senator, you’re not supposed to approach immigration from a “humanitarian” perspective but from the perspective of what is good for America!] Voicing the views of many evangelical Christians, Brownback said he considers the plight of illegal immigrants a form of suffering.This shows how deadly dangerous Christianity is to society when the sacrificial, “compassionate” elements of it are divorced from a balanced and responsible view of reality. The “conservative” Catholic Brownback and his “conservative” evangelical Christian allies have a Matthew 25-based view of politics (discussed by me here), the logical end of which is open borders, the destruction of America, and the erection of a global socialist state.
