Editor: This is a letter written by a concerned citizen of South Carolina. It is an open letter to the Spartanburg County Council. The council may have no legal way to stop the US State Department (or so we are told), but if the Council voted to say they were not supportive of the effort to bring in impoverished people from the third world (because Spartanburg has its own poor minority) it would go a long way to persuade the US State Department to go elsewhere.
As of this writing I haven’t seen an update of what happened with meetings in Spartanburg when the US State Department sent its top dog to a town that has developed a ‘Pocket of Resistance’ to World Relief/UN/US State Department plans to establish an immigrant seed community there.
I did see an excellent commentary at Fits News. Go here for an opinion in advance of the meetings yesterday and Monday.
Below is the letter from Beverly Owensby. The sentiment she expresses here is one all of you concerned about being labeled “unwelcoming” or unchristian should pay attention to. It is a view we have expressed here many times over the years—true Christian charity is using one’s own time and money to help the poor preferably where they live. Or, if one adopts, or supports an immigrant child or family, one uses one’s own resources and doesn’t dump the responsibility on the taxpayer.
An open letter:
After spending hundreds of hours on fact based research, the current REFUGEE RESETTLEMENT program is nothing more than an AMERICAN INVASION. Many are exploiting the compassion of Christians to trick them into accepting the REFUGEE RESETTLEMENT PROGRAM as the right thing to do to protect Christians from being persecuted. This is so far from the truth. Based on the U.S. State Department website, the majority of REFUGEES are Muslims. Why? The UNITED NATIONS is responsible for selecting who comes to America. GEORGE SOROS is spending billions of dollars to ensure the success of this program. If the United Nations and George Soros cared about Christians, they would have done something to prevent ISIS from killing so many Christians in the Middle East and other parts of the world.
CHRISTIAN COMPASSION DOES NOT TAX OTHERS!
CHRISTIAN COMPASSION IS A PERSONAL COMMITMENT TO A CAUSE! THIS IS NOT THE SAME THING AS THE GOVERNMENT FORCING INDIVIDUALS TO PAY FOR SOMETHING THEY BELIEVE IS WRONG!
The United States is $18 Trillion Dollars in Debt and cannot afford to pay for REFUGEE RESETTLEMENT! The United States is on the verge of an economic collapse that will destroy America. The REFUGEE RESETTLEMENT program is designed to push America over the edge. The influx of ILLEGALS coming across our Southern Border and entering the U.S. along with the REFUGEE RESETTLEMENT program are by design to overload the system.
Christians who want to help the REAL PERSECUTED CHRISTIAN can contact a Mission Board and let them know they are willing to house and provide total financial support for an individual or family. THIS IS TRUE CHRISTIAN COMPASSION…. NOT FAKE CHRISTIAN COMPASSION! ….
IF YOU TRULY CARE ABOUT SPARTANBURG COUNTY, YOU WILL VOTE NO TO THE REFUGEE RESETTLEMENT PROGRAM!
THANKS SO MUCH FOR ALL YOU DO FOR SPARTANBURG COUNTY!
LET FREEDOM RING,
What would Jesus do? I suspect he would throw the money changers (federal contractors, including the US Catholic Bishops!) out of the temple.
