Rodney Beard: more English classes, not English Only

Rodney Beard of Living Word Community Church speaks out against English Only in this post on Faith Leaders for All of Us:

I love Nashville! I also understand the frustration surrounding local immigration issues and have even shared some popular sentiments a time or two. But I cannot, in good conscience, support the English Only initiative.

Wouldn’t the money we spend fighting this be better spent by providing more English as Second Language classes in our schools, churches and community centers?
