Southern Baptist Resolution mimics language of 2006 Senate Amnesty Bill

The Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) passed a resolution which critics say closely mimics the language of the Ted Kennedy/John McCain/Lindsey Graham senate amnesty bill of 2006. The CofCC played a major role in helping to defeat that bill.

Many supporters of the resolution have made no secret as to their reasons. They want to recruit Latinos to replace their declining population of white baptists. Catholic churches have tried the same thing for years and failed. Catholic churches that aggressively pandered to Latinos saw whites leave and take their money with them.

This resolution barely passed with only 51.31% of the vote. The resolution mentions the need for a secure border, but so do left-wing and neo-con politicians who are actively working to keep the border open.

48.4% of the SBC voted for a different version that would have omitted what critics call a thinly veiled plea for amnesty.

This resolution sparked the most debate during the entire convention.

The resolution also seems to adopt the rhetoric of the far-left. Denouncing those who would oppose amnesty as “bigots.” This is just crude name-calling not an argument based on facts.

The resolution states…

RESOLVED, That we ask our governing authorities to implement, with the borders secured, a just and compassionate path to legal status, with appropriate restitutionary measures, for those undocumented immigrants already living in our country.

RESOLVED, That the messengers to the Southern Baptist Convention … call on our churches to be the presence of Christ, in both proclamation and ministry, to all persons, regardless of country of origin or immigration status …

… RESOLVED, That we deplore any bigotry or harassment against any persons, regardless of their country of origin or legal status …
