Immigration and "The Church" in Indiana
The ministers were part of an organization called Disciples Justice Action Network, which describes itself as "a multi-racial, multi-ethnic grassroots network of individuals, congregations, and organizations within the Christian Church, all working together for greater justice, peace and diversity in our churches, our communities, our nations and the world. As an organization, they are committed to "social justice issues" (a misnomer if ever one existed) and are pro-choice and supportive of gay and lesbian rights.
Senator Mike Delph, the author of the immigration proposal, did not attend the news conference and issued a short statement: "Jesus obeyed the law."
Delph's simple eloquence in defense of law in the face of an antinomian onslaught by clergy preaching the heresy of unconditional love speaks volumes.
