Anybody know how many illegals live in the Vatican? I assume they’re all fed, educated, given medical care, and a path to Vatican citizenship, right?

This has nothing to do with the Vatican. It’s a prudential statement made by the navel gazing buffoons at the USCCB. A fact like that never crossed that BB mind of yours though, did it?

The USCCB isn't the Vatican, and they aren't a Vatican mouthpiece. They're supposed to represent the (collective) views of the American bishops. Notice I said "supposed to".

And for them to tell priests (they don't have the authority to order it, mind you) to lobby in their homilies for a particular piece of legislation on anything but a pivotal, life-related issue is going way over the line, IMO.
