Church group(Texas Baptist Men) to oversee shelter for unaccompanied children in Dallas County
Valleycentral.com ^ | ^630/14 | Mary Avila

Posted on 07/06/2014 2:24:44 PM PDT by DallasBiff

Unaccompanied children are crossing at an alarming rate, and now many will be heading to Dallas.

"We cannot turn our back on these children that are already here," Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins said.

Judge Jenkins announced that Dallas County would be the first county in the state to offer housing.

Terry Henderson is in charge of disaster relief for the Texas Baptist Men.

He's been waiting an announcement like this for more than a month.

"I kind of had a heads up no matter where it was going to happen in Texas that we were going to be involved because we have already been involved along the border."

I hope the tithes and offerings of the Baptists are not going to pay for this...

Does “Texas Baptist” necessarily mean conservative? All Baptists aren’t conservative.

So...where is Ted Cruz on this?

Anyone connect the dots with cleaning service DTK and ERLC Russell Moore’s support of amnesty? Lots of churches use dtk and many of the employees I’ve seen cleaning can’t speak English.

Texas Baptist Men volunteer everywhere.

I said last week that, politics and policy and corruption aside, the best thing conservatives can do if we’re stuck with these illegals is to let them see our kindness and goodness and don’t let the libs paint us as Cruella DeVille.

Doesn’t surprise me one bit that a Christian group would step in here, showing the face of Jesus to kids who are being used as pawns by evil forces.

Read he article. Texas Baptist Men had a heads up for at least a month.

How much of that Federal(our) money is going into Terry Anderson's own pocket.

Baptist Children and Family Services is who's contreacted to take care of the illegals at Lackland, and I would guess other places, too. BCFS is global, if I usderstand correctly.

They are currently hiring nedical persons, and for other positions for San Antonio. I was wondering if they contracted after the January Job posting by the gov for 24/7 unaccompanied minors listing. Wsn't that osting for 68,000 unaccompanied minors?

This has been building for months. The border has been in crisis, and anyone associated with disaster relief has seen it coming.

I’m not Baptist. I do have experience in disaster relief.

We are all angry about this situation, but you’re taking your anger out on the wrong folks.

Aren’t they nice?

Have they read the constitution? It’s really a short document

Occasionally I send my parish priest a copy of the excerpt in the catechism which states that Catholics are not to aid and abet illegal allies to any country lest it destroy that country and her ability to care for the deserving poor, plus a word or two about lawlessness

That’s instead of contributing money to the parish whose leaders in the USCCB contribute to this lawless destructive activity pretending they’re helping

I give to EWTN who practice Catholicism without lawlessness

It says at this link that all media inquiries for Fort Sill, OK , and San Antonio’s unaccompanied minors must be diredted to Health and Human Services.

That's why I commented as I did. It's all well and good to assist the poor and outcast, but this Baptist men's group is rewarding the crime of theft and they kept the onslaught of border invaders a secret.

IF these so-called children were able to adopted out (the very young ones) then maybe this could be good for those that long for a child, but these look like older "children" who are gang member recruits and/or guaranteed future Dem voters.

My give a _____ is busted and I don't see how helping others to break the law is a Christian thing to do.

The other day on FOXNEWS they said only about 400 of these “accompanied alien children” were actually under the age of 2..

Most are 14-17...

old enough to rape and steal and murder and have illegal aliens of their own...

The truly Christian compassionate thing to do would be to send these illegals back to their parents.
anything else is political

It used to be that the Baptist General Convention of Texas was liberal but associated with the Southern Baptists, and the Southern Baptists of Texas was conservative but also associated with the Southern Baptists; some churches in Texas affiliate with both. Texas Baptist Men used to be affiliated with BGCT but looks like it has ties to both sides at this point.

“Texas Baptist Men operates in cooperation with the Southern Baptist Convention: Baptist General Convention of Texas and associations; Southern Baptists of Texas and associations; and with other Great Commission Christians” (from the website). http://texasbaptistmen.org/AboutTBM/TBMOverview

Maybe a good time for the Southern Baptists to decide whose law they are following and create their own men’s group.

Isn’t this group aka “The Brown Shirts” / civilian army of Obama? Using the word Baptist implies a Christian organization, but isn’t. Could it be, it’s named this so that Christians will be blamed when the truth about the horrific conditions these kids are in? They carry highly contagious diseases, like scabies and are infested with lice.
Who are these children being released to? Their illegal parents, that’s who!

Jesus, went to the lepers to help them and not import them to Judea with Herod's(Obama's) gold.

Terry Anderson and Texas Baptist Men are modern day Philistines.

"I said last week that, politics and policy and corruption aside, the best thing conservatives can do if we’re stuck with these illegals is to let them see our kindness and goodness and don’t let the libs paint us as Cruella DeVille."

Seriously?

It's time to stop giving a damn how we look. Republicans are so worried about seeming racist or insensitive; they're pathetic geldings because of their fears. Liberals know it and they hold it over their heads constantly.

We should never stop yelling our outrage over this invasion of our borders, nor should we stop demanding they be sent home. We're talking about the destruction of the country here. And you want to give up and welcome them in.

As for the "kids" being used by the forces of evil, I'd say their parents are pretty evil to abandon them just so they can get a foot in the door. The thing is, they know there are so many people who think the way you do, so they can get away with it.

And we could send me with a $1000 each child to the parents.

that would be WAY cheaper than what we are in for now.

Of course, if we don’t close the border, they will keep coming. I’m at my wit’s end. Its a lose, lose for us.

I don’t care how we LOOK, but I care very much how these people VOTE if they are allowed to stay. That is, of course, one of the reasons they’re being allowed in.

Some would just let them starve and use them for fertilizer.

My practical preference is to treat them with great kindness, warm them and fill them, and give them the thrill of their young lives with a plane ride home.
