The Southern Baptist Convention’s ERLC, which serves as the denomination’s left-of-center political lobbying arm, has released a propaganda guide “How to talk to your kids about immigration” to help brainwash your kids on this complicated national security issue. The ERLC is a “head member organization” of the George Soros’ Evangelical Immigration Table (as the screenshot below demonstrates) and now wants to teach your kids Soros-approved material to help them think about immigration.
The kids and immigration propaganda guide was offered by the same perspective that led Russell Moore to accuse Christians who want a border wall of idolatry and calling it a “golden calf.” It is from the same perspective that led Moore to say one day we would be “ashamed” of Trump’s immigration policy.
Moore and the ERLC have made it very clear that they do not believe a nation should have sovereign borders, should enforce immigration law, or should prosecute those who invade other nations. Moore, who serves on Soros’ EIT with other liberals like Jim Wallis, is now providing tips for Southern Baptists on how to brainwash kids on this topic.
Written by a contributing columnist for The Federalist, Jessica Burke, the post, How to talk to your kids about immigration, was written in perfect propagandic fashion.
As you would expect, the kids’ guide did not attempt to distinguish between legal and illegal immigration. It presupposed that all immigrants were law-abiding and moral people who were victims of privilege and suffering. The guide equated all immigrants with refugees, who had fled for their lives.
The guide begins…
Several of them had left their home country because of extreme poverty and violence. A few escaped persecution. Some of them had to move when their parents’ jobs transferred them to a U.S. office. Their parents all wanted the same thing: a good life for their children. It’s the story of millions of our neighbors, and yet few of us understand it.
The guide did not inform parents or children that nearly 80% of people who cross our borders illegally are men. Neither does it mention that nearly 20% of immigrants are trafficked like slaves. Neither does it mention that nearly a fifth of children who come into the United States are actually kidnapped hostages not related to those posing as their parents because kids make it more likely for immigration officials to let criminals pass checkpoints. Neither does it mention that nearly a quarter of illegal aliens are known to have committed felonies inside the United States.
Instead, the reasons given by brainwashing guide only included those quoted above, including “persecution” (only roughly 26 thousand immigrants a year come to the United States for legitimate asylum reasons), job transfer, and ‘extreme poverty and violence.’
The ERLC’s child brainwashing guide did not include the fact that American cities, like Chicago for example, have a higher violent crime rate than the per capita violent crime rates of the nations in Central America from which immigrants are “fleeing.”
The guide says…
“While having a foreigner as a classmate can create language and cultural barriers for everyone, it also provides a great opportunity to teach your child about the plight of the immigrant. What should we, as Christian parents, teach our children about immigration?
The guide makes children presume that all immigrants have a “plight.” Roughly ten million Americans – or about 3% – of U.S. population lives overseas. Must we assume that they also live overseas because of “plight”?That is is the assumption demanded us of Soros-influence immigration propaganda.
The brainwashing guide includes the tired old (and Biblically inaccurate) canard that Jesus was an immigrant.
Ruth immigrated to Israel with Naomi and is part of the lineage of King David and Jesus. And Jesus and his family had to flee their home for his physical safety. God used immigration in biblical times, just as he does now. It is hard today, just like it always has been.
Of course, Jesus was not an illegal alien. In fact, Jesus was not even an immigrant at all. Both Judea and Egypt were parts of the Roman Empire, and it would have been like moving from Ohio to Tennessee. No “national” borders were crossed. And certainly, no laws were broken.
Then, the brainwashing guide tells us that we don’t actually own our nation, cities, or communities, but it all belongs to God. As with all good lies, it has an element of truth. But put through the filter of George Soros’ Evangelical Immigration Table, what it means is, “There is really no such thing as a nation-state.”
If your children have only lived in one context, it may be easy for them to think they have ownership over their home, neighborhood, and community. Ultimately, though, this world is not ours. Earth, and everything in it, belongs to God.
This sounds religious and doctrinally astute, but God has given mankind the right to private property ownership in the 8th Commandment. Furthermore, God created the national borders of Israel in places like Genesis 15 and Genesis 18.
Why doesn’t the immigration guide remind children that God instructed Nehemiah to build a militarized border wall?
Regardless of how or why an immigrant came to our country, we are called to love. Regardless of our position on immigration, we are called to love.
Again, this true. However, the Soros-approved guide doesn’t specify that loving immigrants doesn’t imply letting them come illegally. Loving criminals doesn’t imply not punishing them.
No, this the same old tired liberal talking point that Soros’ rented evangelicals have been using for some time, and that is the notion that love requires not enforcing the law.
How long will Southern Baptists let George Soros’ money influence the material they’re telling us to teach our children?
Let's STOP the Modern Day Downgrade
“Daily, the work at Pulpit & Pen is filling the void of places where 100 men once stood and that is not an exaggeration. Day in and day out, they tirelessly vet offerings and influence of ministries around the world that they may guard the little sheep from the least to the most damning of errors. This is hard, unappreciative and alienating toil... JD Hall and his contributors such as Seth Dunn, are almost single-handedly leading the way in a rescue attempt of conservative Evangelicalism and especially the Southern Baptist Convention.” -Alex A.
