My family watched Amazing Grace last night, and as usual when we watch it, got into a discussion about slavery.
We are of the opinion that slavery exists today, mainly in terms of the illegal immigrants and the wages they are forced to live with working for companies that are too cheap to hire legal citizens.
What was ironic...or funny? about it, was that on Glenn Becks radio show today, he was talking about the same thing! I thought it was very interesting.
We totally agree with him -- what about the people who hired the illegal aliens??? What about them? How can they stand to sleep at night knowing what they are doing to another human being? Of course, what about the black slave trade and how they were treated...people seemed to sleep just fine during that too...so where is their soul?
Apparently they don't have them.
I have no problem with people wanting to come to America legally. I know that the red tape is insane, and the costs are there too...but if you want to be here -- what's the price? What are you willing to pay for freedom? We live in the greatest country in the world...
Just ask the illegals.
