More on Houston's Status as a Sanctuary City

As I have been reading the comments and posting on the Houston Chronicle's forum concerning Houston as a sanctuary city, I have come across some very liberal views by some wacko posters.

They are posted below. I have also listed a link to their information page on the Chronicle's web site. Click on the poster's name to link to their page.

PS: Their comments are posted EXACTLY as they were on the Houston Chronicle's website.

This does not mean an endless free ride, just a helping hand to get past a crisis. And O'Reilly? He is nothing but "info-tainment." He needs to retire. He is old hat, destructive and judgmental, in addition to being a phone pervert.

Does the clod think the Federal Funding should go to Omaha?What a ditz. His show is so filled with spite and inaccuracies. and false half truths, that anyone who would listen to his trash is crazy. Long live the PD chief of both Houston and Pasadena

I have spent the last several minutes reading this article and ALL the comments that have sprouted forth from it...and all I can say is that I am so disappointed so many of my fellow Houstonians/Texans.

First it was all the kerapp about the US being a "Christian nation" which is patently false, now we're denying that slavery had anything to do with the civil war? Please. As I said twice now, there were multiple issues that started the war, but slavery (or the attempt to abolish it) was in the center of the conflict.

"Love God and love your neighbor". How would He treat illegalimmigrants? As criminals or as part of God's creation?North America was a sanctuary for the first Europeans that settled Jamestown.In the eyes of the native Indians that were here first, they were illegalyet they were treated with Christian kindness and they knew nothingabout Christainity.

As I have stated in previous posts, there are some crazy people out there. I wonder what color the sky is in their world?
