    @jgarden?

    really interested in seeing an answer to this

    here it is:

    Luke 10:25-37 King James Version (KJV)

    25 And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted him, saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?

    26 He said unto him, What is written in the law? how readest thou?

    27 And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.

    28 And he said unto him, Thou hast answered right: this do, and thou shalt live.

    29 But he, willing to justify himself, said unto Jesus, And who is my neighbour?

    30 And Jesus answering said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead.

    31 And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side.

    32 And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side.

    33 But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him,

    34 And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him.

    35 And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will repay thee.

    36 Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him that fell among the thieves?

    37 And he said, He that shewed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise.



    for instance, do you think the lesson of the parable of the good samaritan is that we should accommodate those who demand that they aren't obligated to follow our laws?

    is this lesson you believe the parable of the good samaritan teaches one that you follow yourself, or are you only demanding that Christians follow it?

    well, the mexicans certainly don't want them in their country


    can you blame them?

    11,000 people who could have banded together and worked, as one single unit, to fix the ills of their own society

    @jgarden - any particular reason to think that this doesn't meet the lesson of the parable of the good samaritan?




    and if you say no, that [voice=dr evil]one billion dollars[/voice] is not enough, how much would be?

    Exactly! They spread their problems to this country, but they won't band together to fix their own nation.

    If those people do come to America they will need Education, Welfare, Social Security, and Health Care for a long time. And that is why they abandon their children in need of care here in America; and that is why people are forcing their way into America.

    Behind the walls of the Vatican the Pope says, America should not be building walls.

    No, they won't. It's not a necessity. In fact, a couple of those things are immoral.

    And that is why they abandon their children in need of care here in America; and that is why people are forcing their way into America.

    The vatican and the Pope are hypocrites.

    But we really should build a wall.

    This is in reference to the idea that many Latinos have native ancestry. In the areas south of the United States the colonization model didn't include killing all the natives but rather integrating with them.
