The AFA’s Bryan Fischer has taken a leading role in pushing back against the handful of Religious Right leaders who have come out in support of immigration reform. One of the claims being made, especially by Richard Land, in favor of reform is that Hispanics are “tailor-made to be social conservatives,” so the GOP and Religious Right should support opportunities for them to gain citizenship.
Not surprisingly, Fischer isn’t buying it, responding that Hispanics have a high rate of illegitimacy, which proves that their values are rather questionable:
Richard Land, in arguing for a guaranteed path to citizenship for illegal aliens already in the country, repeatedly stresses how pro-family the Hispanic community is, and assures us they will be the natural allies of the conservative movement.
Not so fast. According to the Christian Post, 57% of Latino Catholics in California support homosexual marriage. Let’s not forget that Latinos make up 36.6 percent of California’s population.
The good news, if you happen to be an evangelical, is that just 22 percent of Latino Protestants support gay marriage.
If getting pro-family illegals legalized is the goal, perhaps Dr. Land can be persuaded to amend his recommendation and give preference to Protestant illegal aliens.
Also, the illegitimacy rate among Hispanic women is over 50%. I’m not sure pro-family values are as strong in the Hispanic community as Dr. Land wants to believe.
Now that is more like what we have come to expect from Fischer.
