I have a question that I would love your input on.
As a Catholic who has seen my Church infiltrated by the Progressive Liberal Left, I have real concerns with the US Conference of Catholic Bishops sending out Parish Kits which inform and educate Priests and lay people on Immigration reform. In this kit they are calling on Catholics to work with the Democrat leaders in Congress to achieve Immigration reform.
Why would I question with boldness the Leaders of my Church in the United States. Well one just has to look at their track record to find the answer to that.
It has come to light that the USCCB (US Conference of Catholic Bishops) just this weekend had a "Catholic Social Gathering" where prominent anti-Catholic progressives spoke about social justice issues.
-Fr. Thomas Reese, who was forced to resign as editor of America Magazine by the Vatican for his refusal to stop publishing articles which question church orthodoxy on issues like contraception, human embryonic stem-cell research, same-sex marriage, homosexual priests, mandatory clerical celibacy, and whether Catholic politicians who support abortion rights should be given communion
- Page sixof the official "Catholic Social Gathering" program gives a schedule for the Catholic Labor Network Gathering. USCCB exec John Carr is scheduled to join Paul Booth on a panel discussion. Paul Booth and his wife Heather Booth (another prominent pro-abortion activist with ties to the National Organization for Women, who helped organize a group called "JANE" in 1965 which helped young women obtain illegal abortions) founded the Midwest Academy a training institute for progressive activists.
-Paul Booth and his wife have served as host committee members for the National Organization for Women's Intrepid Awards Gala.
Michael Voris of RealCatholicTV.com has been doing some amazing investigative work, uncovering and bringing light to the darkness on the many anti-Catholic activities and persons that are now inside the USCCB.
So why do I have concerns about the influence that the USCCB has on the lay people of the Catholic Church on the issue of Immigration reform?
Because I agree that Immigration Reform must happen as most Americans do. I also believe this is one of the huge failures of the Bush administration. What I disagree with is the reasons why Immigration reform is so important to the Far Left Liberal Progressives.
Why is this such a huge issue to them.
According to reports from TPMDC, Congressional Hispanic Caucus members won't block health reform, provided the condition that President Obama assures them to push comprehensive immigration legislation this year.
Basically they are buying votes for this horrible Healthcare bill by assuring the Hispanic Caucus they will have immigration reform and they can point to the USCCB's actions as proof they are following through with their promise.
The left wants to make sure that also included in Immigration reform is Same Sex Marriage -The Uniting American Families Act (UAFA) would allow U.S. citizens to sponsor their same-sex partners to immigrate legally to the country in the same way heterosexuals sponsor their spouses. The Human Rights Campaign (HRC) and Immigration Equality are supporting the bill submitted by Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D.-N.Y.) and Sen. Patrick Leahy (D.-Vt.).
So in my opinion I believe the Catholic Church is being used as a vehical for Liberal Progressives to pass their agenda.
What infuriates me is that the US Conference of Catholic Bishops are allowing this to happen, and giving the left the cover to pass legislation that is harmful for America and completely contrary to Catholic teaching!!
