A. Pole: Huntington probably had ancestors who owned the Mayflower. He is very disappointed that his ethnic group is now outnumbered by most others: Poles like you? Irish or Germans or Scots or Scots-Irish (by way of Newfoundland in Canada) like me although I admit to an English grandfather who was the last nationality among my ancestors to arrive here? My English grandfather had the good sense to marry my Irish grandmother and to become Catholic long before his Anglican Church was confronted with Bishop Vicki Gene and such, as a condition of marriage. So I guess Professor Huntington would not care for him either.
Poor Huntington! Oh the horror! The Mexicans are coming! Many are actually Catholic (as are you, me, ninenot, sittnick, palestrinagal0317, and Taxchick)! Few Mexicans worship birth control, homosexuality and/or abortion (any more than do you or I or ninenot or sittnick or Taxchick)! Rum! Romanism! Rebellion!!! Lions and tigers and bears, oh my!!!!
A New York Times article a few days ago claimed that a full 39% of US Catholics are Mexican and/or Latin American right now. Given the respective birthrates among Latinos on the one hand and the rest of the Catholic population, Catholicism in the US will soon enough be majority Latino. If there is an absolutely revolutionary upsurge in traditionalism among Catholics (which would be evidenced by a dramatic birthrate increase), then that Latino majority might be postponed. Best of all would be the rise of traditionalism among ALL Catholics here in which case we US Catholics won't particularly care about our respective ancestries.
All: I wish each of you (and everyone else who is a Christian on Free Republic and in life) a happy and holy Christmas season and all the best in the coming year.

Look, whether someone is an immigrant or a Catholic can affect one's subjective bias, but it does not change the OBJECTIVE truth that excessive immigration is bad.

Certainly would be a good thing if all those Hispanic immigrants voted pro-life for a change, eh?
