Not sure how the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel…

…can still write editorials that are friendly to illegal immigrant workers when the national unemployment rate is headed towards 9%.

    In Matthew 22:34-40, the Pharisees asked Jesus which Old Testament law is the most important:

    “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the greatest and first commandment. And a second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.”

    Some say he was referring to Leviticus 19:33-25:

    “When an alien resides with you in your land, you shall not oppress the alien. The alien who resides with you shall be to you as the citizen among you; you shall love the alien as yourself, for you were aliens in the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God.”

    John, are you aware that in the past week, an illegal immigrant just killed an 18 year old student in Wausau. Do you also know that the illegal immigrant was arrested several times by police in the Wausau area. Now, those who believe in your position have blood on their hands.
    That is why liberals have no clue about the real world.
    The real world understands that most illegals are good people breaking the law. However, there are some bad illegals who are content on breaking the laws of the U.S. and they have the backing of liberals like you.. Liberals do not seem to understand that there are laws and they need to be upheld.
    Thanks libewrals, now you have blood on your hands for this tragedy in Wausau because you want to feel good about yourselves.

    Well, if we’re quoting the Bible…

    Submit yourselves for the Lord’s sake to every authority instituted among men: whether to the king, as the supreme authority, or to governors, who are sent by him to punish those who do wrong and to commend those who do right.
    Peter 2:13-14

    The Bible does not call for outright disobedience of man’s law. Remember that whole render onto Caeser thing? And if you want to get to the real basics, how about lucky number 8? The one about stealing? After all, it could be said that illegal immigrants are not only attempting to “steal” the benefits of citizenship, but also legal citizens’ jobs.

    Funny how the Bible can be quoted to meet one’s needs. But don’t blame me. I’m not the one who first quoted it to make his point.

    Yeah, that’s what the second person to quote the Bible usually says.

    Gee, John, hope you sleep good tonight. It’s liberals like you who kill innocent people with your views.
    So, now that the liberals helped kill an innocent person, how many more deaths are you willing to accept to make you feel superior to the rest of us?
    And what does the Bible say about illegals killing innocent people. Any quotations from the Bible for that?

    Hey guys, could we be a little less aggressive with each other in the comments section?

    I love when people disagree.

    I like it less when people attack each other.

    I just ask that visitors here treat each other the way they would if they were sharing a beer.

    Feel free to argue, but try not to act in a way that would result in throwing punches in real life.

    By the way, Dan, that wasn’t aimed specifically at you. It’s been a while since I pointed out that particular guideline and I felt like it was time to do it again.

    I really have only 2 rules here.

    1.) Be decent to each other on a personal level.

    2.) Don’t be more amusing than I am.

    You’d be surprised at how often that second rule is violated. (Then, again, maybe you wouldn’t be.) ;)

    I apolgize Elliot. Your house, your rules. I actually really did calm it down. I guess it was the timing of the post, John’s comment and the murder.

  • 9. Elliot  |  May 15th, 2009 at 8:27 am

    Again, it wasn’t you, Dan.

    Every once and a while it gets heated and I just have to let people know that I like everyone to be respectful of each other as people.

    On the other hand, you can piss all over each other’s ideas as much as you want! ;)

  • 10. John Foust  |  May 15th, 2009 at 9:46 am

    Whew, Dan, I’m glad to hear it wasn’t you.

  • 11. Elliot  |  May 15th, 2009 at 9:49 am


    It’s not you, either John.

    Can’t we all just get along?!!!

    (I feel like I heard that somewhere before.)

  • 12. John Foust  |  May 15th, 2009 at 10:06 am

    Darn, there I go breaking Rule #2 again.

  • 13. David Casper  |  May 15th, 2009 at 10:28 am

    Well what in the world did I do?

  • 14. John Foust  |  May 15th, 2009 at 1:22 pm

    Maybe a little time in your room will help your memory, young man.
