An effort is underway, and has been for some time, to persuade Christian Americans on various policy issues, including same-sex marriage, extending unemployment benefits, and anti-Israel initiatives, by using an oftentimes cherry-picked and/or unusual interpretation of biblical teachings.
The organizations seeking to sway public opinion are well-coordinated and oftentimes funded by extreme leftist groups, such as the Open Society Foundation.
Napp Nazworth of the Christian Post discussed one of those efforts Friday,
“Evangelical leaders supporting immigration reform praised the new set of principles on immigration reform released by House Republicans after their winter meeting.”
The “Evangelical Immigration Table” leaders “hail from the left and right of the political spectrum,” Nazworth wrote, “including leaders of Focus on the Family, National Association of Evangelicals, Sojourners and the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission.”
Nazworth quoted Samuel Rodriguez, president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference and Christian Post contributor, who is also a member of the ”Evangelical Immigration Table” (EIT), as saying.
“House Republicans who support these reforms could face primary challenges from Republicans opposed to a path to legal status.” If that happens, Rodriguez added, evangelical Christians across the nation stand ready and willing to help those who are backing reform.”
Nazworth failed to mention that this well-funded, well-coordinated effort to shove through legislation supporting a “path to citizenship” for illegal immigrants, a relatively low-priority issue for Americans, has progressive infiltration written all over it.
