    U.S. and Mexican bishops call for just immigration reform

    Washington DC, Sep 4, 2008 / 11:58 am (CNA).- At the 2008 Conference on Immigration in Washington D.C., bishops from Mexico and the United States called for immigration reform that respects human rights and the dignity of those affected by violence against undocumented immigrants.




    During the conference, which took place July 29-31, the bishops said, “It is urgent that help be given to Central American immigrants who pass through Mexico and to those who manage to cross the border into the United States.

    They pointed out that “many people feel forced by extreme poverty to immigrate to the United States to work mainly in agriculture, landscaping, construction and the service industry.

    It sounds like these bishops should be facing some charges of aiding and abetting illegals, and the church should have its tax-exempt status removed for being advocates of being against actions of national security.
    Extreme poverty is no excuse for breaking the law by coming here illegally.

    Take religion out of the issue---

    At least here in America. One of our problems has been and still seriously is--American are dropping out of participation in religion in large numbers. An interesting article I read that ranked the different religions in IA aiding and abetting--the Lutherans were first, the Catholics, second. It was not a head count issue, it dealt with the kind of help and support offered and matched it to the size of each national congregation.
    OK--let's say the Catholic church is a business, not a religious institution. What is so different about what they are doing than what many business employers are doing in America???? Whereas the congregations are dropping out voluntarily, the employees are getting cut to reduce payroll. Somewhat different, yet quite similar.

    American Cardinals and bishops are urging the Congress, or anyone who will listen, to open the borders, supposedly out of following God's law. (That law is as badly misinterpreted as the 14th amendment.) The newcomers fill the pews on Sunday and place money in the basket. Ah, we are heading back to a profitable business.
    Compare that to the efforts of the US Chamber of Commerce.. Somewhat different, yet very similar.

    What is the strongest shared value between the leaders of the church and business??? Disloyalty to America. Disloyalty to our citizens, sovereignty and wellbeing.

    Oh, yes, I should have added that about one half of our elected officials at all levels of government share that disloyalty--the difference being that they took a specific oath to prevent this very thing from happening.

    Thus, they commit treason and betray their oath to America whereas the religious hypocrites and C of C people are merely venal, unpatriotic weasels, they are crooked, corrupt, but not violating their oath of office.

    Just call me an ex-republican, ex-catholic man who believes in the USA, honesty and courage. I would rather go down fighting with fellow Americans at my side than to continue on prospering by betrayal of America.
