Soros Funded National Immigration Forum Confirms It’s Paying for Evangelical Radio Ads

According to the Arizona Republic, the George Soros funded National Immigration Forum, which advocates virtual open borders, is paying for a $250,000 national radio ad campaign with prominent Evangelicals urging legislation to legalize about 11 million illegal immigrants. The ads are timed to influence the upcoming debate starting this week in the U.S. Senate over legislation that would legalize first and later seek greater enforcement measures in the future.

The executive director of the National Immigration Forum confirmed funding for the ads but asserted Soros grants aren’t directly funding them. In recent years millions of dollars of Soros funds through Open Society Foundations have been about half the Forum’s income.

Not a legal entity itself, the Evangelical Immigration Table, which hosts the ads and other immigration advocacy, is a project of the Soros funded Forum.

Here’s the full article. The comments by the Forum’s executive director are about two thirds down.

    I’m painfully aware of those Soros-funded ads, which are running constantly on several of our local talk radio stations. Lynn Hybels of Willow Creek Church uses a whiny, den-mothery voices to try to guilt-trip Christians into supporting amnesty and open borders. It’s no credit to her, or Willow Creek, or anyone associated with this EIT that they are being used by Soros like ventriloquist dummies. It’s a sorry state of affairs when a huge evangelical megachurch that, in the past, touched so many lives, is going down this road.

  3. I’ve been re-reading C. S. Lewis and was struck by how much he emphasized the supernatural element in Christianity, meaning he doubted that a Christianity that focused on this world had any right to be called Christianity, since in practice it looks exactly like secularism. I’m not saying we ought to disconnect completely from political issues, but maybe we ought to occasionally take a look at our priorities and bring them into line with the Bible. I agree with what Sandy Naylor says about Lynn Hybels and Willow Creek, they sound like secular liberals, and it’s impossible for faith and that ideology to coexist, because secular liberalism pretty much demands total commitment to its agenda.
