God commands His people to treat immigrants with the same respect and dignity as those native born ... we desire to see immigration reform include an emphasis on securing our borders and providing a pathway to legal status with appropriate restitutionary measures, maintaining the priority of family unity, resulting in an efficient immigration system that honors the value and dignity of those seeking a better life for themselves and their families … any form of nativism, mistreatment, or exploitation is inconsistent with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
“I am grateful for the strong, unanimous vote of the Southern Baptist Convention in support of our immigrant neighbors and brothers and sisters in Christ,” said Russell Moore, president of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention and a longtime critic of the Trump administration, in a statement emailed to journalists.
“Now is the time for our country to act justly, to stop separating families, and to fix an immigration system that is hurting too many people in our country today.”
Do local Southern Baptists in Somervell County/Glen Rose agree with this resolution passed by the convention? If so, certainly every single one of them should be on the phone or email telling Coryn and Cruz to cut off separating children from their parents. If not, then southern baptists locally have zero credility and humanity.
