I am sorry and do not mean to offend anyone who is Catholic. However reading the Bishops also urge that an individual not be detained until he/she has been convicted of a crime that poses a threat to public safety of immigrant communities and families, rather than at the time of arrest. How about the Catholic Church agree to accept full responsibility for illegals who are arrested and released on bail, allow the Catholic Church to be 100% responsible for keeping them out of trouble and ensure they show up for all court dates or face sanctions for failing to fulfill their obligations.The Catholic Church at times just seems very backwards

As a practicing, believing Catholic, I truly wish The Church would shut up about our domestic political policies.

Isn’t it ironic that the Catholic Church is in a tizzy about being forced to do something by the government while they’re simultaneously telling the government what to do about illegal immigration.

I am sorry too and I am Catholic, but I can not make myself line up with such radical charity and radical kindness that continually points its finger at only the United States, holding only the US responsible for the deliverance of human dignity to illelgals, law breakers and border crossers, but NEVER Mexico, and certainly never the illegal.

The good Bishops who always get the press always fault the US and totally IGNORE every jot and tittle of the clear catachesis of the Catholic Church that just as clearly instructs respect for the law of nations, as well as human dignity.

The narrowness of these Bishops is more akin to Marxism than disguised as charity and kindness. There is just no dialogue with these bishops, it’s like you hit a wall.

The Church is rightfully fighting the intrusion into Church doctrine by the government, but the equally illegal intrusion of illegals onto our soil and the burdens they place on the backs of Americans, in regard to taxes and provisions, is staggering.

I love the Church. I do not love the socialist/Marxist leaning element romping unchecked within the Church. Catholics know exactly who they are too, and will fight their advances.

Pelosi is a measuring stick. If she is FOR it, you know you’re in the evil camp, and up to no good.

Bishop Rozanski exceeds his authority in stating specific policy preferences; the bishops' role is to declare the principles that bear on the issue, then let the laity exercise their prudential judgment to form policy. If Bishop Rozanski wants to be a policy maker, he should tender his resignation and run for office.

I don't want to offend any Catholic Freepers either, but this was just striking stupidity coming from a senior churchman.

At the same time that Catholics are benefiting from support of non-catholics over mandated insurance requirements (right to life), this activist dolt publishes a pro-illegal alien screed guaranteed to p#ss off about half the people who were otherwise in their corner. Well, at least it ticked me off - just like the L.A. diocese housing illegals did.

Hint to Mr. Rozanski; opposition to contraception is a fundamental element of Catholic theology but sponsoring the invasion of a neighbor is NOT...unless the Pope calls for another crusade.

I am not a Catholic, but taking everything into consideration, the catholic church’s stance on no birth control is is scriptural. God did say, to go forth and multiply. He had good reason, as we are finding out, for Christians and other r non-Islasmists are being outnumbered becuase the Mormons and Islamists even have (had) multiple wives so they can sire more children, while abortion, and contraception takes millions of non- Islamists every year! I shudder to think of how our grandchildren and their children will be iduced to live non-Chrstian lives. under sharia Law. Without the living God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, there can be no America for our descendants. How can we allow this to happen?

If the Establishment is working to import Democrat voters, they may be working at cross purposes, for most Latinos are people of faith. Of course the Muslim element, the enemy of our way of life in mind are invading us as well! What a dilemma!
