Did the convention also call for compassion for other types of law breakers? I doubt it. Why did they specifically call out for compassion for this one type of law breaker? Shouldn't tax cheats and bank robbers also be worthy of our compassion? Don't you think that by only singling out compassion for this one type of law breaker they were implicitly asking for leniency -- AKA amnesty.
Ann Coulter offers up specific liberal evangelical voices that openly tout amnesty while cherry-picking biblical verse to try and support their views. Why is it ridiculous to point out their public compassion for the illegals while they ignore the compassion for those that pay the costs of these law-breakers?
