Soros' Prophets of Baal

By James R. Edwards, Jr. on June 10, 2013

George Soros' dollars are funding a pep rally for the Senate's obese amnesty bill, S. 744. On Wednesday, while the Senate is expected to be debating the legislation, Soros' pet project, "Bibles, Badges, and Business" (BBB), will gather its modern-day prophets of Baal on Capitol Hill to try to create the impression that Christians, law enforcement, and business owners favor mass amnesty, open borders, and the disadvantaging of American citizens who can't find full-time jobs (rightly known as "the least of these").

BBB and the "Evangelical Immigration Table" are facades for the open-borders National Immigration Forum. NIF receives millions of dollars from Soros groups, including support for its infiltration campaigns directed at evangelicals, police, and business. The funding has been exposed in recent reports, including by Breitbart and the watchdog Institute on Religion and Democracy.

The shell-game tactics of EIT, BBB, NIF, et al. to fool the public as to who is really behind these PR stunts smacks of bearing false witness, something bonafide Christians ought to be concerned about doing. Apparently, the National Association of Evangelicals, the Southern Baptist Convention, and others are not troubled by the lack of transparency (at best) or scheme of lies (at worst) of this web woven to deceive.

A key link in organizing Christian Right groups to these charades has been Jim Wallis of Sojourners. His role is curious because Wallis has long advocated unorthodox political positions (some unbiblical, others based on questionable biblical foundation). How he became the trusted guide on immigration for those who have butted heads with him for years on other prominent issues is curious indeed.

Like the contest between the prophets of the false god Baal and the prophet Elijah in the Old Testament, here's hoping the BBB/EIT/NIF/Soros shenanigans fail to spark a flame for their cause.
