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.
You know this, do you?
