Jim Daly, the head the conservative radio-based ministry Focus on the Family has joined dozens of evangelical leaders to push for immigration reform that would include a path to legal residency or citizenship for those in the country without legal status.
More than 100 pastors, academic leaders and others endorsed the “Evangelical Statement of Principles for Immigration Reform,” unveiled Tuesday, which calls for bipartisan legislation protecting family unity and guaranteeing secure borders. The group said it is planning a radio ad campaign to support its push.
“Our national immigration laws have created a moral, economic and political crisis in America,” the statement reads. “We urge our nation’s leaders to work together with the American people to pass immigration reform that embodies these key principles and that will make our nation proud.”
Some evangelical leaders, including Leith Anderson, president of the National Assn. of Evangelicals, and Richard Land, president of the Southern Baptist Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, have pushed for immigration reform for the last few years. But this is the first time the Colorado-based ministry founded by James Dobson has joined the call.
“I signed on to this statement because immigration reform is more than an ‘issue’ to families -– it profoundly affects their stability, structure and quality of life,” Daly said in a statement.
“I’m encouraged that more than 100 evangelical leaders, who have some pretty significant differences of opinion on matters of theology and public-policy advocacy, have come together to declare with one voice that our government must respect and balance both the rule of law and the God-given humanity of all people in working toward an immigration solution that puts principles ahead of politics.”

A quick reminder from the all-time master of propaganda.
More insanity from Brave New World’s leading nation. It’s hard to believe these people are the descendants of the Vikings.
SORMLAND, Sweden, June 11 (UPI) — Left Party members of a Swedish county council said they want to encourage men using the council’s toilets to sit during urination.
The Left Party in Sormland said it wants the Sormland County Council to pass a motion requiring toilets reserved for stand-up urination to be labeled, Swedish news agency TT reported Monday.
The party said sit-down urination is more hygienic and reduces the risk of bathroom users having to negotiate their way around puddles en route to the toilet.

This weekend the American Medical Association will consider an important resolution to call for the support of GMO labeling. The AMA is the nation’s largest and most respected association of doctors and medical students and their support of labeling genetically engineered foods will go a long way in protecting the health and rights of their patients.
The Indiana State Medical Association and the Illinois State Medical Society have both introduced resolutions to the American Medical Association supporting Federal legislation and/or regulations to require labeling of food with genetically engineered ingredients and they need your support today. Right now, the American Medical Association is accepting public comments until Monday, June 4th.

One of President Barack Obama’s former professors appears to have turned against him, according to a recent YouTube video.
“President Obama must be defeated in the coming election,” Roberto Unger, a longtime professor at Harvard Law School who taught Obama, said in a video posted on May 22. “He has failed to advance the progressive cause in the United States.”

Ferdinand Bardamu, master of ceremonies at the seminal mansophere blog In Mala Fide, has opted to take his website to the cyber-scrapheap while he heads for some ill-defined greener pastures. I don’t know Ferd personally, though he has been kind enough to link to many of my articles, and I will always adore the implacably profane honesty of the opening sentence of his review of The Columbine Pilgrim (“Holy fuck, this is one messed-up book.”); thus, I wish him well.
Ferd and I recently engaged in a vigorous exchange of ideas on the subject of embracing one’s “beta”-hood vs. striving to be “alpha”; though Ferd’s side of the debate isn’t curently available, you can see my two articles, “In Defense of Squares” and “Reply to Bardamu” (www.counter-currents.com/2012/04/reply-to-bardamu). Though we differed radically in our perspectives, it was an amicable debate. It has been eye-opening for me to discover and explore the online “manosphere” lately, as its adherents are one segment of the uneasy coalition of malcontents with modernity that make up the Alternative Right.
