Dangerous "Christian" theocrats

The following is a video from a debate on immigration in the Senate of Alabama.

Stick with the confusing start of the video, then get to the heart of a dangerous "debate"

Damn, it’s scary.  Quite apart from the politics of immigration it assumes that there are no liberal Christians, Roman Catholics, Jews, Muslims, Atheists, Agnostics, Buddhists, or non-religious people in that State.

The argument is rooted in beliefs about the "saved" and the "unsaved".

It has no references to the Constitution of these United States. 

It is based on a very narrow and eccentric view of the Bible.

Thus, I believe that the  America of “christian theocrats” as expounded in Alabama is to be feared by freedom loving folks of the right and the left, and of freedom loving folks of all, any, or no religious conviction.
