It is not up to any church to look out for this country, including law enforcement; we are SUPPOSED to have others to do that.
THe Church often speaks for those who can't speak for themselves. I don't hear many people arguing when the Church reminds this Country of the horrible sin of Abortion or the horrible perils of cloning. Its a unpopular view I know. But I am not sure if the proposed cure for this illegal immigration problem that many are voicing is not more deadly than the disease. Its like trying to cure a headache with Chemotherapy. I want this immigration problem solved. But I don't want America to lose its soul in the process. I feel this most strongly as regarding family units that are established here where one member or more is a illegal. At some point the cure becomes immoral.
I guess the point is that there are many post that criticize the Church's position. However very few have taken the time to review where the Church is coming from. Catholics in good faith can hold a wide spectrum of views on this subject and the proposed solution. However, the Church is reminding us that there is a human dignity that must be respected.
You are right, as a Christian if my Church insisted we support the illegal alien criminals I would get up and leave.
I would never support socialst communist lib illegal aliens!
Deport them all no exceptions!
