Theology That Builds Walls

Yes, walls can keep people out

But walls--theological and real--also protect the integrity of what they surround. Christianity is not a theological free-for-all and America has the right to protect its way of life and monitor who gets to come in. There is a reason the founding fathers insisted on separation of church and state: they clearly saw that the government had its job to protect its people and the church had its job as the moral compass. And yes, the best answer would be to revamp the immigration system, but how is that possible with so many conflicting views of "what needs to happen"? And how about the fact that Barack Obama has a wall around his house? And why is every President surrounded by a "wall of security"?
