Earlier this month House Democrats reintroduced the Uniting American Families Act, which “would grant same-sex couples the same residency rights currently enjoyed by heterosexual couples under U.S. immigration law.” Such legislation is unsurprisingly despised by the Religious Right, with Peter Sprigg of the Family Research Council calling it an “an assault on the definition of family,” adding, “I would much prefer to export homosexuals from the United States than to import them into the United States because we believe homosexuality is destructive to society.”
Religious Right groups appear to be allying with hard-line anti-immigrant leaders like William Gheen of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC), who tells OneNewsNow that since American culture “has been predominantly European Christian” and “Christianity preaches against sodomy,” Democrats in Congress are “targeting” gay and lesbian immigrants for “importation” in order to realize their plan of destroying American culture:
“Targeting anybody for importation into the country based on their sexuality doesn’t sound like something that Congress should be messing with at all,” contends William Gheen, president of Americans for Legal Immigration (ALIPAC).
But he says this legislation fits right into the left’s agenda of changing the traditional values that made America great.
“They’re looking to bring in anybody challenging the established culture inside the United States that they want to bring down,” Gheen suggests. “And though the majority culture of the United States for the last 200 years has been predominately European Christian…they are looking for anybody that would take issue with that. And, of course, Christianity preaches against sodomy.”
The ALIPAC president concludes that the traditions that made America great have clearly fallen uner [sic] siege by the “do as thou will” crowd.
