We blasted Russell Pearce on his unrighteous dominion, now will the Arizona Right to Life blast him and support Jerry Lewis since Pearce was wanting to take away more baby rights via the 14th amendment of the Constitution? We believe the AZ Right to Life has a unique opportunity to do the right thing and prove to Latinos that all babies are precious regardless of color.
From the Phoenix New Times:
Recently she penned an intriguing online editorial, observing that Pearce’s politics are in direct contradiction with LDS teachings. It’s worth reading, and it makes an interesting analogy between Pearce’s anti-immigrant legislation, such as Senate Bill 1070, and the infamous 1838 “Extermination Order” issued by then Missouri Governor Lilburn Boggs.
That document read, in part, that,
“The Mormons must be treated as enemies, and must be exterminated or driven from the State if necessary, for the public peace-their outrages are beyond all description.”
Although the Pearce-authored SB 1070 does not call for the “extermination” of illegal immigrants, it made “attrition through enforcement” Arizona’s official immigration policy. The point of the legislation was (and still is, for that part of it not enjoined) to drive Hispanic immigrants from the state.
Considering the fact that both ethnic violence and a rise in hate crimes have followed in the wake of 1070′s passage, the analogy is a solid one.
Blase also quotes Mormon scripture to describe Pearce’s reign as Senate President, specifically this passage:
“We have learned by sad experience that it is the nature and disposition of almost all men, as soon as they get a little authority, as they suppose, they will immediately begin to exercise unrighteous dominion.” §121:39
“Unrighteous dominion” sounds like as good a label as any to affix to Pearce’s tenure as Senate President. Hopefully, that dominion will see its last day on November 8 of this year.
