Rev. Dr. Gabriel Salguero, pastor of The Lamb’s Church in New York church wrote an op-ed chiding the Church for not getting into the big middle of the orchestrated illegal alien, Obama spawned, debacle on the border.
This dude sounds like a JLo-esque amnesty minister who’d like to keep this illegal horde rather than send them packing. He calls those who protest busing 1000s to various cities as ‘angry protestors who’re stoking flames of fear.’ From what I can tell, most of the protesters are law-abiding citizens tired of watching their tax dollars go down the crapper while illegals abuse the system.
What I find interesting is that he ends his misty eyed musing by quoting Jesus’ famous ‘sheep and the goats’ sermon that damns to hell the stubborn ‘goats’ who refuse to help those in need.
According to this gent Jesus was talking about illegal aliens pouring over our borders, flouting the rule of law. Check it out Clashers.
I told my congregation last Sunday, “Fear cannot be our basis for action. Fear is never the humane way forward.” If we are to move forward, we must work together in hope. Hope requires sacrifice and courage. This hour in American history will tell how strongly the evangelical church in America holds to these virtues. Will evangelicals step forward and asked for increased resources for security, education and sustainable development in Honduras, El Salvador, Guatemala and Nicaragua? Will we refuse to allow people to blame children for the broken immigration systems? The church cannot be silent as angry groups of people stoking the flames of fear yell at buses filled with helpless immigrant children and women. Intelligent and well-meaning people can disagree on the best way forward to this humanitarian and immigration crisis. All will agree that screaming at children caught in an inescapable web of international relations, corruption, human traffickers and stagnation on immigration reform isn’t the way forward.
We in the United States must also remember that our commitments and foreign policy in Latin American aid, security, environment and development have a direct impact on whether Gilberto and those like him remain safely at home or dies in the desert. In addition, we must, for the sake of our shared humanity, act on immigration reform. Legislative inaction has too high a cost. And when they come to our shores seeking refuge from the tempest-tossed realities of violence and poverty, we cannot allow screaming crowds to be the voice of who we are as a people. For when we as a nation query Jesus, “Lord, when did we see you hungry, or thirsty, or a stranger, or needing clothes, or sick, or in prison and did not help you?” Jesus will reply, “Whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.” What we do for Gilberto, we do for Jesus.

So, finally, dear Christian, are you cool with Dr. Gabe’s assessment that you’re doomed if you protest the invasion on the border? Do you think because you’d like to see our nation’s laws respected, that puts you on AC/DC’s Highway to Hell? Do you have any thoughts on this one before we burn for all eternity for opposing this Cloward-Pivening of the USA?
