This is a complete pantload from Sister Kathryn. And no surprise, except perhaps for the lack of integrity. She doesn’t disagree, she begins, BUT BUT BUT BUT BUT…
People may doubt this, but I used to admire the Catholic Church. The few Catholics I knew were admirable people. I managed for decades to overlook the creeping reality of Catholicism as I have observed it from a great distance in the political behavior of the Church and its most faithful children.
This tears it. And the corruption of an otherwise good conservative like K-Lo by the pious, self-agrandizing, political meddling of the church…it just goes to show how wicked this church is, the Christian faith for corrupt, northern, urban, Democrats.
I have an angry and bitter hostility to any and all people and institutions trying to destroy my country. I don’t care how much pious genuflecting they’re doing, how much they wave their crosses about or swing their incense or mumble their incantations. And the RC’s aggression on immigration is only the latest of its disruptions to good governance. Being a conservative often means being tough, being more like a father than a mother, insisting on standards and expectations, and even punishing people at times. But the RC is pure, Democrat populism. Pageantry and compassion 24×7. They corrupt the minds of the citizens who need some resolve to keep this country on track. I will not pretend not to notice how wicked and corrupting this church is.
Let’s hope our own LadyK will do better than Lopez if she gets around to it. I’m sure she will.
My view on this issue is plain: If Jesus has a Magic Money Tree from which He can pluck dollars any time He wants, I’m all for the international socialization of poverty. And that’s exactly what it is when the Catholic bishops — or anyone else — expects American citizens to pay for illegal aliens from another country.
But money doesn’t grow on trees. People have to work for it. There is no Magic Money Tree. Those dollars are taken from hard-working Americans to give to illegal aliens. This is just another case of the self-aggrandizement of the Catholic bishops who don’t have to pay for their “good works.” They simply force others to through socialist means.
Concerns for Mexicans is all fine and well. But the Catholic Church can just as easily share that concern (and the accompanying private charity) in Mexico. There is no inherent or logical reason that this charity must be socialized and thus force hard-working legal American citizens to pay the bills for illegal aliens.
I’m not a Christian. Nor do I play one on TV. But as with everything regarding the Left, everything it touches it degrades and makes worse. There’s an idea in Matthew 7:14 that seems relevant: “Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.”
I don’t think Catholics, Protestants, or Jews who stump for socialism via their religion are even within a stone’s throw of that gate.
