Can you be bible-thumping and anti-immigrant?

I suppose. The religious “right” pick and follow whatever is convenient. Love thy neighbor is forgotten when the neighbor is gay. Is this another one of those cases? Take a look.

Leviticus 19:34 The alien living with you must be treated as one of your native-born. Love him as yourself, for you were aliens in Egypt. I am the LORD your God.

Now, I must say that the Catholic Church has long stood up for the rights of undocumented immigrants and provided a safe haven (sanctuary) for migrant workers. No matter how much I take issue with their position on other matters like homosexuality, this one deserves props.

How many rabid ALIPacers, ‘FAIR’ and NumbersUSA members are actually compassionate Christian conservatives? Going by the hatred and scapegoating, not an overwhelming number would be a wise guess.

IF YOU are bible-thumping and anti-immigrant (legal or illegal), I would love to hear your justification in light of Leviticus 19:34
