So proud to have Bishop Carcano participating.
way to go, Bishop Carcano!
Thanks, Bishop Carcano. It's time for the whole UMC to get in the game. We were mealy mouthed about Civil Rights, talking out of both sides of our mouths. We need to be one on the future and say where we stand.
I, also, believe that immigration is a 'moral' issue that goes to the heart of human relations. I don't agree that the church should get into political manurveing(not sure of spelling) like our President ask us to. America was built on a system of laws meant to protect everyone's right to 'life. liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.' When the politicians talk about "comprehensive immigration reform," they shoud be more specific about what they mean and answer "all" questions before taking action.
nov - I agree with you but as you will recall during the Obamacare vote Nancy Pelosi told the American people that the bill would have to be passed before we could know what is in it. Our politicos don't want specifics to come out in their bills because there would be too much uproar if we knew what was in a bill. It is better to keep the public un-informed than let us know what they are really trying to do. I don't trust Carcano either or any bishop for that matter - too much like politicians and as for Carcano - leading her flock in the wrong direction like so many bishops.
I believe we should become involved in comprehensive immigration reform. 1.) The U.S.A. should close the boarders of all immigration until the situation is under control. 2.) Everyone who is in this country without current and/or legal paperwork should be out processed to their country of origin. 3.) Once the immigration is under control, identify who should immigrate into this country for work, education, or for the good of the country. This should not be based on nationality, race, gender, or religion. 4.) People who are member of organization that are a threat to the U.S.A should be barred from entry. 5.) The cost to apply for U.S.A. citizenship should be limited to actual cost of processing applications and reasonable related expenses. 6.) The Church may take additional action beyond the political, by sponsoring immigrate families of United Methodist from around the world. As well as sending Missionaries to immigrate to other countries to live and work around the world in the name of Christ Jesus.
