Skip to comments.Do I go to mass tomorrow, and listen to a homily advocating amnesty for illegal immigrants? (Vanity)

Have head that tomorrow, September 8, parish priests, on order from their dioceses, will give homilies that unabashadly advocate amnesty for illegal aliens, that is, support the Obama administration's policy in this area. Last week's homily was, in my church, a taste of this; the priest worked (snuck?) the subject of immigration and immigrants into the homily. Since I've returned to the faith from a somewhat lapsed status over 4 years ago, I've endeavored not to miss any days of obligation. But I remember way back in 1982 when a priest gave an over-the-top homily supporting the nuclear "freeze" movement. I do not want to ever sit through something like that again. If I do, I will simply get up and walk out of church.
Religion is politics, politics is religion.
This whole thing (which I have heard about on FOX) really p8sses me off, grinds my gears so to speak.
The Catholic church keeps its lips tight on the homosexual agenda, avoiding it whenever possible, and fails to bar politicians who support infanticide all for the whole schtick of ‘not being political’, yet now they have certain priests shilling for amnesty. I’m aware it is not all of them, and many won’t be taking part in this crap, but the double standard irks me.
walk out...quietly and respectfully..but walk out. That’s what I would do.
I agree, the Church was astonishingly passive on the matter of same-sex “marriage”, even though it makes a mockery of a sacrament. But then, considering some of the priests coming out of the seminaries in the last 30 years, maybe it’s not such a surprise!
I sympathize. Much will depend on which diocese you’re in.
Seems that if your priest/pastor is preaching about supporting breaking the law, then he is not preaching Biblical principles, why go.
Well I would stand up and say”I need a job first”very loud and then sit down.Have I done this stuff before.You bet your Bippie.
Not going, need to keep my blood pressure at normal levels!
Hell no-stand up and stand out.
I agree that you should walk out, but I don’t believe that you should be entirely respectful. I’m not saying you should start screaming or anything, but you should leave in a way that everyone notices.
Go tonight. Avoid the annoyance.
You’re going to have to do what I did in 1972 when that douche (I can’t remember his name any more but I think it rhymed with McPhoney) gave us all a lecture on the immorality of the Vietnam War. I had just returned the year earlier after spending 14 months as an Infantry offifer. I got up and walked down the main aisle of the church and out.
Afterward, I only went back to set an example for my children. Worked for the daughter but not the two boys (one, later, became an Evangelical).
Don’t put up with their crap. After all, they’re not our Lord.
After the kids were grown, I never went back.
Ooops, meant to include this:
Try to remember that Mass is about you worshipping your Lord, not about any one priest’s particular homily.
Confront them with this:
On the other hand we just returned from our Vigil Mass which was said by the most liberal priest in our parish. Not a word about immigration, although we did pray at the beginning of the Mass for peace in Syria and throughout the world.
For reference, I'm in the Philadelphia archdiocese.
Good points. I’m in the Harrisburg diocese, but that’s a sprawling one, geographically.
What good is a government that caters to foreigners over its own citizenry?
>> I will simply get up and walk out of church.
Might be time to consider a switch to a congregation that follows Scripture.
Keep in mind that not all mainstream Protestant churches have gone over to the dark side — and most evangelicals *certainly* haven’t. In spite of what the Catholics would have you believe, we worship the same GOD ALMIGHTY, believe in the same JESUS His only begotten Son (”the same yesterday, today, and forever”), we’re all saved by grace through faith for a purpose, and you won’t burn in hell for worshipping Him with us instead of absorbing the left-wing pap your communist priest lays out. :-)
Just sayin’. And FRegards.
