THE ONLY THING:
Evangelicals may boost immigration shift (Joe Garofoli, December 2, 2012, SF Gate)
Richard Land endorsed Mitt Romney, opposes same-sex marriage and abortion rights, and is a leader in one of the nation's largest organizations of Southern Baptists.But on Tuesday he and other conservative Christians - as well as antitax leader Grover Norquist - will be in Washington to lobby for a major goal of President Obama's second term: opening the path to citizenship for immigrants.It's the right thing to do from a moral perspective, say Land and other evangelical Christian leaders.
The notion that the lobbying is a "but," rather than part and parcel of being a faithful Christian, is the damage the Right has caused.
