As the United States prepares to celebrate Thanksgiving - a holiday that American legend traces back to a dinner between Native Americans and bedraggled, immigrant pilgrims - some of the country's top political leaders are calling to block the arrival of Syrian refugees, would-be immigrants fleeing chaos and possible death in the Middle East, a situation some think the U.S. may have helped create.
In the wake of the Nov. 13 Paris terrorist attacks, newly elected U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said the U.S. government needs to "balance our compassion and our safety," when it comes to processing refugees from Iraq and Syria, who would otherwise undergo a rigorous screening process, taking up to two years, and including multiple interviews and security checks...
...But American Catholic leadership is singing a very different tune. In statements and action alerts sent out post-Paris attacks, the USCCB strongly rejected this line of reasoning.

Yes, everyoneâs welcome â Kumbaya
How many of the “Refugees” is the good Bishop personally sponsoring without any taxpayer funding?
America is not responsible for the civil wars, or sectarian wars of muslims.
[How many of the âRefugeesâ is the good Bishop personally sponsoring without any taxpayer funding?]
Apparently the Catholic Bishops got the “Give to Caesar what is Caesar’s and Give to God what is God’s” message mixed up.
Let them move into Vatican City? Oh my, what a touching gesture. I approve!
If the bishops want these guys, then they can take them into their own houses and take care of them.
Twenty-five Americans are killed each day by an illegal alien, either a drunk driver or a murderer. The bishops, who call constantly for more illegal aliens, never acknowledge the deaths, the disease, the expense, the social upheaval.
The Constitution is not a suicide pact.
We do not have to import anyone.
We should not import anyone bent on destroying us.
All muslims are obligated by their faith to see sharia replace the Constitution.
Sure, serve Bacon wrapped Ham drizzled with a tasty liqueur.
I don’t care if the Bishops support taking in people who supposedly are fleeing war (s-u-p-p-o-s-e-d-l-y), but then I (as a Catholic) should see a commensurate response from the Bishops. What I mean is, all of them should insist we pray each and every Sunday for the conversion of all the Muslims in the world, especially those entering the U.S. All the Bishops should insist on teaching how Islam is filled with errors. All Bishops should insist on supporting Christians in the Middle East. Anything less is just supporting political Liberalism.
That piece is full of lies...Apparently that can be overlooked by your pope...
The vast majority are not women and children...They are military men who are coming in soon to be by the hundreds of thousands...
These people hate America and Americans...We are infidels, the Great Satan to them...
Did they say we all worship the same God?
Maybe if the table is a really, really heavy one and I can't find anyone who doesn't want to kill me to help move it.
More propaganda from the CINO ministry.
Don’t believe a word of it.
