For months now liberals have admonished U.S. leaders to consider allowing a large influx of immigrants into the country.

When Americans who resist the idea speak up they’re ridiculed and called racist. Because for some reason wishing your country to remain secure from a covert invasion of known enemies of the state has racial implications.

This is the leg liberals stand on as the best reason to allow refugees in, because it’s in the DNA of the U.S.A. to accept everyone (even possible Muslim terrorists) with open arms.

But some religious leaders don’t agree.

One in particular is the archbishop of Canterbury in Britain.

The English have been dealing with the refugee crisis for sometime now. To say they’re unfamiliar with the threats posed by radical Islam would be a lie.

Britain’s Archbishop of Canterbury said it is “outrageous” to describe people who are worried about the impact of mass migration as racist.

There is “genuine fear” of the impact on housing, jobs and the national health system, Archbishop Austin Welby told Parliament’s The House magazine.

He recognized that some people had concerns about the pressure new arrivals put on communities and services. The archbishop said: “There is a tendency to say, ‘Those people are racist,’ which is just outrageous, absolutely outrageous.”

“Fear is a valid emotion at a time of such colossal crisis,” he added. “This is one of the greatest movements of people in human history. Just enormous. And to be anxious about that is very reasonable.”

He said it was “really important” that fears were listened to, and resources put in place to address them.

The U.S. is already one of the leading acceptors of Islamic refugees as it is. For us to open the floodgates and allow more in because it “feels right” dismisses the legitimate concerns so many Americans have about the security of our nation.

The most unfortunate aspect in all of this is how the legitimate fears of Americans are being denied by bleeding heart liberals who have no understanding of how sovereignty or security work.

Ad-hominem attacks are leveled at people who wisely suggest a moratorium on Islamic refugees be put in place until a more consistent screening process is put in place.

And when the issue of faith comes up they’re also the same ones who conveniently forget how all of history is filled with stories of aggression of Muslim nations on Christian nations.

It would seem the Archbishop is quite correct in his assertions as others in leadership in England agree with him.

Work and Pensions Secretary Iain Duncan Smith, who is one of five cabinet ministers campaigning for the U.K. to leave the E.U., welcomed the archbishop’s comments on migration.

“These are rational comments from the archbishop – they’re to be welcomed,” he said. “But you wonder just how late they’ve come from various people in institutions, so I congratulate him.

“If you think back, for far too many years what’s happened is that in a sense the elites have all said, ‘It’s terrible to talk about immigration and if you do you’re racist,’ so they’ve shut down the debate for many, many years.”

Do you think he’s on the mark?
