As a life long Catholic I believe in treating ALL with compassion and respect. I DO NOT believe that it is proper to mix Church and State. The Catholic Church is on the WRONG side of the law of the land on this issue and smells like pandering to Hispanics for the self-serving purpose of increasing revenues. It is WRONG to request special treatment by our lawmakers for illegal aliens. It is RIGHT to help all of those in need. It is RIGHT to tell those who are breaking the law to do whatever it takes to get on the correct side of the law. Political activism by the Church could backfire with nuclear level results.
