Dear Editor:
Having been the object of David Murray's wit and the subject of Benjamin Lowe's defense, perhaps a reluctant response is in order. The intent of Mr. Murray's email may not have been so much of an attack on the Bible as it was an inquisitive reflection on the numerous discrepancies contained therein and in immigration law as well as his own personal situation, particularly in view of his last comment. If it was meant as an attack, this would be nothing new "under the sun" (Ecc.1:9) and notice of any such has been possibly alluded to as recorded in Deut.22:10, Judges 5:10, Psalms 104:11, Job 6:5, Num. 16:15 and 2 Peter 2:15,16. If Samson was able to slay a thousand men with the jawbone of an ass, certainly Mr. Murray is entitled to influence his thousands through his words.

But I would prefer to believe the former, and must applaud Murray's refreshing position of not endorsing any further amnesty for illegals. Regarding the other discrepancies, we are all still trying to resolve those and I would submit we need to look to a higher authority to do so. As God has given us our agency and tries to work with flawed men, many of these may be attributed to ourselves and those in early history had different conditions.

Mr. Murray seriously underestimates the magnitude of the invasion problem, either by legal or illegal parameters as defined by him and/or by current law. "Legal" immigration has risen by 65% in the past 2 years according to INS data and exceeded one million persons in 2001, the highest number in a century. [Quoted in Oct. FAIR Report, ] While a limited immigration policy has always been beneficial, the mass numbers coming now constitutes an invasion and a real threat.

Massive "immigration" numbers as a result of our lax policies and unsecured borders are affecting Americans in many adverse ways and were a participating, proximate cause in the tragic events of Sept. 11 and the sniper killings.

As a priority matter of self-defense and national survival, this has to be addressed and changed.

Two excellent booklets are available which should be read by all Americans (this would presumably include immigration attorneys). They are: "Immigration Out Of Control" and "Immigration and Nation, A Biblical View", both by John C. Vinson whose website is found at: (click on booklets). In the latter, Deut. 32:8 and Acts 17:26 indicate that God prefers that different cultures have their own lands as "bounds of habitation". To do otherwise would seem to be an attempt at constructing a modern "tower of Babel". Is there an authoritative message to be gleaned from the destruction of the WTC towers ?

Also highly recommended are:,, and

I find no particular reason or purpose in attaching my name as I am not seeking credit and like the Lone Ranger of former TV years, prefer that the deed and/or the words stand for themselves. Besides, Tonto has left to manage an Indian casino. I am the Really Lone Ranger.
