I am responding to the well constructed arguments of a thoughtful friend. This friend believes that Conservative Churches are somehow political and the far left ones are somehow not.
A certain Baptist denomination knowingly violated US immigration law. My friend pretends this is sanctuary. There was zero evidence that any of the illegal aliens were
in any actual danger. In fact anyone familiar with the process can identify what is commonly known as a boilerplate asylum claim. This Church knowingly inserted itself into US foreign policy and knowingly violated the law. Sanctuary is not aiding and abetting communists in the Cold War. Nobody elected this Church to conduct US foreign policy. Moreover, many of these so called refugees graduated to commit crimes. A similar leap of illogic was presented by Rev Spitz who thinks abortion is an atrocity and killing abortionists is justified. Maybe, someone will start the Church of the Immaculate Reefer and sanction pot smoking next.
Religious freedom ends at criminal acts. You do not have the right to kill abortionists in the name of religious freedom. You do not have the right to knowingly
violate the immigration laws of the United States in the name of religious freedom. In fact the United States government should have immediately launched a RICO lawsuit
and seized Church property and jailed the leaders. The Clinton administration did abuse the RICO statute against anti abortion groups for far less than this Church is clearly guilty of.
Contrary to my knowledgeable friends opinion liberation theology is indeed Communism.
Pope John Paul knew plenty about communism as he lived under it. One of the Pope's greatest achievements was ridding the Catholic church of communists. Sadly other denominations were not so lucky.
