Biblical Reason for Amnesty? Nope!

Posted on November 24, 2014 at Louder With Crowder by Krystal Heath

It always amuses me how a culture that removes the Bible and prayer from school and panics at the sight of a nativity scene manages to work Scripture into its fabric when, and only when, it’s convenient to its own narrative.  For someone who declared, “Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation,” the President himself is quite good at this particular feat.

His latest example of using bits of the Bible for his own purposes came during his totally unconstitutional declaration of amnesty for five million illegals.

Democrats from near to far have rallied behind the President’s supposedly Scriptural support for their cause.  “Yes!  See, you right wing Christian nut-jobs?  God wanted us to have executive action amnesty.  The Bible says so!”  (This, by the way, from the same people who boo’d God at their convention.  But I digress...)

So does the Bible actually support the President’s unlawful action?  Well, quite frankly, since the President (or better still, his speech writer), didn’t provide us with a reference for what Scripture he was quoting, we’ll have to make some presumptions, as the phrase “you were strangers, too” is found in numerous locations in the Old Testament.  The President may have been referencing either Exodus 22:21 or 23:9.  Maybe it was Deuteronomy 10:19 or Leviticus 19:34.  We don’t really know.

Before I go any further, let me just say, the PRESIDENT made this comparison, okay?  I didn’t come up with this myself.  All I’m doing is clarifying what he said with some context.  Because, you know, if there’s one thing all Biblical scholars agree on (and those topics are few), it’s that the context of any given passage is crucial to it’s interpretation and subsequent application in our lives.  (For example, when you read, “Come, walk to me on the water,” Jesus was talking to Peter.  Not you personally.  You will sink.)

That said, let’s look at just a bit of the context from the four passages the President was possibly quoting…

Gosnell’s Media Cover Up: Lifeists vs. Abortionists

Written on Monday, April 22, 2013 by Steven Crowder via Patriot Update

kermit-gosnell-799a1046201ee9f6Once you wade through the political rhetoric, the media cover-up and the overall ugliness surrounding the Kermit Gosnell trial, there’s an important message to take away: The abortion debate is transparently becoming less and less about when life begins, and instead about two groups of people separated by an increasingly large ideological gap.

How else do you explain the thousands of people killing their children on a mere “in or out” technicality?

No, as you peel the layers of obfuscation from the atrocity that is the modern abortion holocaust, you will find a battle between two groups of people with very, very different values. Those people are either Lifeists or Abortionists.

(Sidenote: Kermit Gosnell is an evil murderer, the kind of guy who has Satan personally praying for the man’s salvation just so that he can deny him entry. Is a fetus a human being? Certainly much more so than Gosnell. On with the column.)

Terms like “pro-choice” sound benign. Leftists designed them that way. Who could possibly be against choice?  Whether it’s “reproductive rights” or pizza toppings, “choice” sounds like a really good thing. But for this term to hold any real meaning, one would have to assume first that its adversaries are anti-choice, and that “choice” has anything to do with legitimizing murder.

Lifeists believe in choices as well. The choice to abstain from sex, the choice to engage in protected sex, or even the choices made to correct past mistakes, like giving a child up for adoption, or taking responsibilities for one’s actions (be that through becoming a loving mother or active father).

No, Abortionists aren’t “pro-choice.” They simply allow the ideal of comfortable choice — of convenient choice — to trump the value of life.
