Skip to comments.The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops policy paper on its support of illegal immigration
Posted on 06/14/2006 4:52:10 PM PDT by garbageseeker
I am posting this article because very few people know that the Catholic Church is going out of their way to make sure CIRA is the law of the land. The church has supported illegal immigration for many years and they have been active in getting CIRA passed. I also publishing this article in the hopes that the many Catholics who support the House of Representatives would know what their church is doing on the illegal immigration issue in the United States. I really do not think that Roman Catholics know the churches position on this matter.I know that there are many Catholics out there who support the "borders enforcement only" approach, not the approach the pro-illegal immigrant. approach our leaders has taken.
Sorry, the numbers just don't add up.
Don't know where these figures come from, but to arrive at this $500 billion, one would have to "assume" that EVERY single one of the 12,000,000 Illegal Aliens, was working; earning an average of $12,500 a year for ALL of the 22 years, and they were ALL getting paid in the customary manner and had Income/SS taxes withheld.
USCCB is not the Catholic Church anymore than the ACLU is America.
Mexican nationals may also vote to give themselves more benefits. Which would be a great boon to the party which supports abortion.
You obviously have never seen Border Politics in action. The Democrats run a Machine amoung Mexicans, Led by Liberal to Marxist, Mexicans. The immigrants believe anything they tell them because they are Mexican, we can't get the message out to the immigrants, first because of the language barrier, second they wouldn't believe us if they could understand us. The leaders of the Democrat Mexican political machines, support the most Pro Abortion Candidates out there, of course no mention of abortion is made, like in English they use feel good words.
My point is that there isn't any way Roe v Wade could be overturned by filling the country with Mexican voters.
You've nicely demonstrated the typical level of discourse achieved at FreeRepublic on any subject concerning the Catholic Church.
And why few ever care to try and extinguish the flames of idiocy that inevitably result.
Based on how recent immigrants, who are mostly Hispanic vote, especially in California, I think the opposite is true.
You do know that if you were raised a Catholic, and have since deserted the church, and it turns out the Catholics are correct over salvation/damnation, then you are less likely to get into heaven then the Baptist, because the Baptist didn't reject the truth of Catholicism because Baptists were never exposed to the truth. Someone who had the truth but then rejects it has no ground to stand for, there is no cover of ignorance, for they knew exactly what they were doing. This is why excommunication is so serious, because excommuniciation amounts to a sentence to hell. Not saying your going to hell, I'm just saying that Catholics should consider long and hard a decision they make to abandon the church, especially considering the church can prove that it's authority eminates from Jesus Christ himself.
Well, AzaleaCity5691, I kinda had my doubts when it was found that Jesuits were supporting the Communists in El Salvador (Strike 1) Then, priests were found to be molesting kids ( Strike 2...You can't be a perv, and be true to faith)The last strawis the Coucil of Bishops declaring that they will nopt follow the law, they will aid and abet criminals, and "WE should help the foreigners" (Strike 3)
These Bishops, Cardinals and Priests are no better than Fidel Castro. To me, they are like the modern day Pharisees and Sanhedrin.
Oh, yes, I have faith. But it is like this: Did the Pioneers have a church coming across the continent? Did the average soldier in the Civil War havce a church?
No, they didn't but they kept their faith and trusted in God.
I think most conservative Catholics are aware of this and disapprove of it.
This what is known as a prudential issue. The bishops have given their opinion, but it has no force, unlike the abortion issue. People can take it or leave it.
Frankly, the U.S. Council of Bishops is a loser, more often than not.
To be fair on the bishops, I believe they are supporting this position because they think it is the compassionate thing to do. I'm afraid they favor unlimited immigration, period.
The bishops are political dummies, for the most part. They should stick to what they understand. And, yes, I'm a Catholic.
I have a lot of catholic friends, and none of them like illegal immigration...so I'm just going to take this with a grain of salt.
No, then there would be more ex-Catholics. I've already wised up. A long time ago.
