My colleague Freddie Marinelli has written extensively about the issue of illegal immigration. Today, I'd like to shift the focus to the Vatican and the opposing views that Pope Francis has versus the prominent Vatican Cardinal Robert Sarah.
As you may know, Pope Francis has repeatedly criticized President Trump, without mentioning his name, about the wall that the President and his supporters want to build in the Southern Border. Never mind that the Vatican itself has a wall protecting the Pope and his staff - the hypocrisy would be laughable, if the issue wasn't so serious.
But the Pope may find himself now in the opposite side of the Cardinal, who in his new book "Evening Draws Near and the Day is Nearly Over", which Europeans seem to be devouring, insists that it is wrong to "use the word of God to promote immigration". He adds that it's better "to help people flourish in their culture than to encourage them to come to Europe".
But wait until you hear what else Cardinal Sarah said last week in an interview:
"Is this what the Church wants? [The Church should not support] this new form of slavery that is mass migration".
Finally someone exposing mass immigration for what it truly is: slavery!
I have thought for a long time that in the US Democrats NEED an underclass to retain power, and illegal immigration gives them exactly that. An underclass that would guarantee these voters would elect them into office for as long as they remain illegal. Yes, I know - illegals are not supposed to vote. But who are we kidding? Their votes already count. We know that.
But you see, these illegals can only be slaves to the Democrats for as long as they remain illegal. The minute they become Americans, opportunities start popping up, and with those opportunities comes prosperity...and with prosperity, people tend to lean conservative. So it is a MUST to ensure these illegals NEVER become Americans if Democrats are to USE them as their permanent underclass. Let's not forget that Obama, during his first 2 years in office, had the White House, the House of Representatives and the Senate... and what did he prioritize? Amnesty? Nooooo... Obamacare. So these immigrants can never become Americans if they're to belong in the Democrat plantation.
Don't get me wrong - I'm not promoting amnesty here. Far from it. I'll get to the Bible in just a minute, but I first want to make sure that it's clear that Amnesty can only make matters worse, as the influx of illegals would never stop. But my main point, for any potential illegal reading these lines is this: the Democrats WANT you to be poor, marginalized, illegal and illiterate. Because the minute you open your eyes, you will see them for who they are: plantation owners.
But let's go back to Cardinal Sarah's remarks. He's absolutely right about what he's saying: mass migration is a form of slavery.
But what does the Bible say? Why would any religious leader have anything to say at all about immigration, one way or the other?
Well, because the Bible speaks about it. For those of us, Christians, who believe the Bible is the infallible Word of God, what the Bible says or doesn't say is important.
What does the Bible say?
It says three very important things:
a) We must accept foreigners... but not any kind of foreigners. God commands us to accept only those foreigners who are willing to accept His laws. In essence, we can only accept LEGAL immigrants:
Leviticus 18:26: "You must obey all my decrees and regulations. You must not commit any of these detestable sins. This applies both to native-born Israelites and to the foreigners living among you."
In other words, legal immigrants are expected to become productive members of society, which is not what the Pope or the Left promote.
b) We must help immigrants. Exodus 23:9 says "you must not oppress foreigners. You know what it's like to be a foreigner, for you yourselves were once foreigners in the land of Egypt". So helping immigrants is a mandate, but letting them rip us off is not. And enslaving them is definitely a no-no.
c) We must assimilate immigrants - so crucial to understand. Abraham circumcised not just the members of his family, but his servants, who were not part of the Covenant. (just as a side note, "servants" in the Bible means "workers", not slaves. There is no such thing as slaves owned by Godly people in the Bible. Godly people were slaves in antiquity, but God's people were not allowed to own slaves). Foreigners in Israel were expected to contribute to the success of the nation. Obeying the laws, paying taxes and becoming productive members of society is a must for all immigrants.
In sum, God gave us explicit limits to our acceptance of strangers. They shouldn't be enslaved, like the establishment in Europe and Democrats in America want. But they must do their part.
"You are to have the same law for the foreigner and the native-born. I am the LORD your God"
