Posted on 09/09/2013 11:28:59 AM PDT by Alex Murphy
Atlantas Cathedral of Christ the King joined a nationwide Catholic campaign Sunday in calling for an overhaul of the nations immigration system and a pathway to citizenship for immigrants living illegally in the U.S.
Deacon Gerald Zukauckas delivered Sundays homily, urging parishioners to get involved in pushing for a floor vote on immigration legislation in the U.S. House of Representatives. Catholic churches across the nation were expected to deliver similar messages at Masses Sunday.
Our moral tradition based upon our Catholic social justice calls on all people of faith and good will to stand up in defense of life and human dignity, Zukauckas said, just as we have for the sanctity of life from the moment of conception to natural death.

Since when is the truth “bashing?” With the exception of abortion and birth control, the USCCB’s position statement reads like the platform of the Democratic party. Gun Control - can’t get enough of it. Wealth redistribution - great stuff. Illegal Immigration - all for it.
Why bring Mexican Catholics to the US via illegal means when all he needs is a plane ticket to minister to them in their own country?
I’d prefer that they not end up being an excuse for Catholic bashing. They are so provacative it guarantees the bashers will descend. Like that thread about the “saints” dripping in gems. Whatever interest there might be in getting to the facts of the story is overwhelmed by the acrimonious Catholic bashers.
There are things that are more important out in the world - like Bozo fixin’ to start World War III. It seems like a waste of time and bandwidth to post these kinds of stories which pit Freepers against Freepers.
Maybe if you start posting threads about how to stay strong in the face of Martyrdom by the Islamics, instead of threads pitting Christians against each other, you might have more credibility.
Atlantas Cathedral of Christ the King joined a nationwide Catholic campaign Sunday in calling for an overhaul of the Mexico`s immigration system and a pathway to Mexican citizenship for Ameican, Guatemalan, Ecudorean, Costa Rican, El Salvadorean et alii immigrants living illegally in Mexico.
I’m Catholic, but I really have little in common with the Church’s politically correct approach to a wide range of issues. I guess to a purist that makes me no Catholic at all. Well, they see things their way, and I see them mine.
Credibility with who? He seems to be a credible poster to many here. One CAN choose what they read and comment on at FREE Republic.
Truth is one thing. Bashing is another and there are plenty of threads full of it.
Believe me, I can’t stand the USCCB’s position. They are aiding and abetting criminals. I will complain all day about the USCCB’s positions. But I guarantee that this thread will end up being an argument about how the Catholic Church is totally horrible, hates the Bible, and is a cult. Watch and see.
Its what I said on another tread a couple weeks ago.
It takes sometimes 20-30k/month to pay for the operating expenses on some of these large churches.
Remember how the Crystal Cathedral collapsed into a black hole do to lack of funds.
Churches of all denominations have been crippled by operating costs and the only way out is more people.
How do I know this? A bunch of friends and I bought one back in the early 80’s.
We spent more and more time trying to find funding till we were broke.
And it was a simple small building only for 120 max.
Where in the world did you get the idea that Alex's threads pits Christians against each other? Show me ONE THREAD that pits one Christian against another Christian and I'll apologize for this post.
I'm talking about one TRUE Christian against another TRUE Christian, BTW.
IMO, anyone helping to destroy the nation by calling for immigration reform is a matter of paramount importance which deserves to be addressed. The source is irrelevant to me.
My pastor spoke of this problem just Sunday. He said either evangelizes or fossilize and he said fossils arent alive. Too many churches fail by not making the next generation their focus. If you go into a church and most of the heads are grey [or bald ;-) ] you are looking at a dying church.
I myself was water baptized two years ago by one of our youth pastors 30 years my junior and I wished that Id would have been half the Christian he is when I was his age.
Before I go to the trouble to find the thread, let me make sure I understand you. By “true Christian” against “true Christian” you are not including Catholics, are you?
Who cares? The truth needs to see the light of day.
If Catholics are caught with bad juju, take it up with the ones responsible, not the messenger delivering the news about it. Everyone posts with agendas in mind.
