The Conspicuous Absence Of Biblical Values In The Immigration Debate

Last night President Obama announced a new approach to immigration in which the government will go after “felons, not families. Criminals, not children. Gang members, not a mom who’s working hard to provide for her kids.”

Today, my Facebook feed is predictably filling up with outrage. It’s the same sort of outrage (and often from the same people) I hear whenever a new state legalizes same-sex marriage or whenever a bakery doesn’t want to bake a particular cake or whenever a wedding chapel doesn’t want to perform a certain kind of wedding.

But there is something conspicuously missing in the outrage over immigration.

Biblical values.
