    Bannon Rips Catholic Church, Says Bishops Want ‘Unlimited Illegal Immigration’

    Bannon Rips Catholic Church, Says Bishops Want ‘Unlimited Illegal Immigration’

    Former White House strategist Steve Bannon denounced the Catholic Church’s position on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, accusing church leaders of having an “economic interest” in continued illegal immigration.

    In a wide ranging interview with Charlie Rose of CBS, set to air Sunday on “60 Minutes,” Bannon blasted the Church for condemning the Trump administration’s decision to wind down the DACA program.

    “The bishops have been terrible about this,” Bannon, himself a Catholic, told Rose. “By the way, you know why? You know why? Because [they’re] unable to really come to grips with the problems in the Church, they need illegal aliens, they need illegal aliens to fill the churches.”

    Following Trump’s decision Tuesday to wind down DACA, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) called the move “reprehensible” and vowed to support the program’s beneficiaries.

    “Today, our nation has done the opposite of how Scripture calls us to respond,” the bishops said in a statement. “It is a step back from the progress that we need to make as a country.”

    While the USCCB alluded to a higher authority in its support of DACA, Bannon accused the Church of a more earthly motivation.

    “They [the bishops] have an economic interest in unlimited immigration, unlimited illegal immigration,” he said.

    Bannon was known as one of the voices inside the Trump administration pushing for tougher policies in immigration. While he disagrees with Trump’s decision not to cancel DACA outright, Bannon says he understands why the president shifted the burden of deciding the program’s fate to lawmakers.

    “Look, what he did on DACA the other day — okay, I don’t agree with that DACA decision, but I understand how he struggled with it, I understand how he’s giving the possibility of a legislative thing,” he said.

    End the tax exempt status of all these Churches.

    Time to pay the piper and pay YOUR fair share of taxes!

    How much lost revenue to the government by these Churches?

    They have turned into nothing but a big money making business encouraging poor people to keep breeding and live off the BACKS of hard working taxpayers.

    People will still give to their favorite charities.

    A lot of churches in this country seem to want to destroy it.

    Yes, I'm for stopping the tax exempt status of churches. I'm not sure why it ever got started.
