The people that created this nation were not immigrants, they allowed immigrants to come to our nation.
Mainline Protestants have always been to the right of Catholics, and still are, until recent years, they were way, way to the right.
Thanks for the links Salvation, I will ck them out....but my complaint is with the very powerful and influential USCCB for very publicly supporting Obama’s “universal healthcare bill”, saying many times over many months that it was a “good bill” that they agreed with its purpose.
EXCEPT for the abortion language.
That’s why they DID NOT support it.
Universal Healthcare will steal our family's private health insurance and our earnings for generations to come.
It will diminish our individual health and our nations wealth. And will grow government to an astonishing level.
This new law will also make conservative politics impossible...who will campaign to take away healthcare? And who will vote for any conservative who does?
Unless this is repealed, Conservatism is deader than it is already. How does it help to promote pro-life and other conservative values if we are even more weakened?
Is this the goal of the Catholic Church? To grow the State? How is this conducive to human freedoms?
OK, tell me this.
If one teacher at a middle school sexually abuses a student, does that indict all the other teachers? No.
Does that mean the entire school is unfit for learning? No.
You cannot speak about the entire Catholic Church is such generalities as you do. It’s just like the media telling us we elected Obama................when most of us didn’t want him.
Go figure. Do Catholics put all protestants into little cubbyholes like this? No.
So, no way, can you put the entire Catholic Church and ALL Catholics, as you say, into this little cubbyhole you have crafted with words. It just doesn’t work.
Please don’t say that I as a Catholic support illegal immigration just because I am a Catholic. That’s nonsense. Get my drift?????
I certainly hope so.
He's touted as being able to relate well to the huge Mexican population of the diocese because he's Mexican. I made no reference to his citizenship ... you did. I have to wonder what sort of negative sterotypes you've internalized, to think that saying Gomez is Mexican, is "slamming people around."
You and I have had some very pleasant exchanges in the past, Salvation. Let's do try to keep it that way, please. I'm quite capable of setting theological differences aside when the topic is not theological. I'd thought the same of you.
If by church policies you mean urestricted abortion and "gay marriage," then yes. If you mean traditional Catholic moral positions, then no. Like Black Protestants, Hispanic Catholics are thoroughly in the pocket of the forces of moral nihilism.
The hijacking of the Catholic Church by Marxist elements is now front and center. Who in the major media has the courage and guts to write about it?
The liberal media isn't the least bit afraid to attack the Catholic Church (they've shown that with their witch hunt against the current Pope). However, immigration is one issue where the liberal media agree with the Catholic hierarchy, so don't expect any exposure of this issue other than claims of "nativist Protestant bigotry."
I have no daoubt that he can relate well with the Hispanics. I just thought you were a little harsh in your calling him a Mexican and not knowing that he was a U. S. Naturalized citizen.
I admire him for that.
I don’t think he will be an easy mark like Cardinal Mahony was at all. He will either teach them the right way to become a citizen or ask them to return to their homeland.
Guess we’ll both have to wait and see, won’t we?
I grew up in Western Nebraska where the word Mexican was used to describe the Hispanics as much the “N” word would describe the black population. I detest the word “Mexican.” So you pegged me right there.
I’m not attacking you as a person...it was the language and the fact that you didn’t know about Archbishop’s quest for American citizenship that caused my rant.
Are we friends again?
Still painting with that broad brush.
I said that mainline Protestants are to the right of Catholics and they are.
They show that in every election at the voting booth. including in 2008 when they voted for McCain while Catholics voted for Obama.
Interestingly, Protestant Hispanics are fairly Republican, in 2004 they went 56% Republican, and in 2008, they went 48% Republican.
How come I never see any of those mainline Protestants protesting at Planned Parenthood abortuaries and why did they all cave after the 1930 Lambeth conference? You need to stop smoking dope.
I've never heard that, in Texas, California, Arizona, New Mexico and so on, Mexican is the way that you would even describe your wife or husband in many conversations if they were Mexican Hispanic. We all know what it means.
LOL, yes the press releases, statements, and politicking coming from the Church do give us a giant side of a barn to “paint”!
Maybe you should drop them a line?
I'm happy to hear it. I guess Hispanic Protestants are centered on theology rather than liberal ethnic politics.
in 2004 they went 56% Republican, and in 2008, they went 48% Republican.
Uh-oh. Not good.
