Quote of the Day

[Content Note: Racist imagery; Christian supremacy.]

"I know you are hearing a lot recently about whether or not these 11 million individuals become legal, that these are 11 million voters that automatically vote for a democrat or a liberal. Don't drink the Koolaid! How do I know that? Because 7 out of 10 individuals that come to Christ, that have a religious conversion experience to Christianity in America today, are of Hispanic descent. …We have to put some salsa sauce on the top of the conservative movement!"Sam Rodriguez, President of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, at the Faith and Freedom Coalition's "Road to the Majority Conference" this weekend.

Runner-up quote, care of Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, at the same conference: "There is a war on Christianity, not just from liberal elites here at home, but worldwide." Okay, player.

Honorable mention goes to Jeb Bush: "Immigrants create far more businesses than native-born Americans. Immigrants are more fertile, and they love families, and they have more intact families, and they bring a younger population. Immigrants create an engine of economic prosperity."

That sounds like quite a conference!
