USCCB campaign urges parishes to pray, preach on behalf of DREAM Act
Catholic Culture ^ | August 19, 2011

Posted on 09/05/2011 3:24:17 PM PDT by Alex Murphy

The Justice for Immigrants campaign of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops is urging priests across the nation to “incorporate petitions, prayers and homilies” into Sunday Masses on September 25 in support of passage of the DREAM Act. The bill, first introduced in 2001, would provide a path to citizenship for some illegal immigrants.

The Justice for Immigrants campaign has also issued an invitation to “plan a vigil or public event between Sept. 18 - Oct. 9 in support of our DREAM students and youth” and offers a “sample agenda and elements of a powerful event” to assist in planning.

For the record, I hadn’t seen this article... but I was going to post a similar criticism after my DC-area parish, now led by a flaming hippy (sigh) was pushing this. I know you post this stuff to push down Catholics so you feel better about your religion, but this criticism / esposure is 100% justified.

Absolutely inexcusable.
