Migration Week was too good a target for one
non-observant Protestant to miss).
In a cathedral near you, open-border-loving Catholics
may be even now
celebrating their annual
National Migration Week (January 8-14).
The occasion is not as spectacularly colorful as,
Groundhog Day (February 2), but it does function as
a handy organizing device for shredding American
job one for Catholic hierarchy—one of the
loudest voices for open borders—is to destroy the
Sensenbrenner bill (HR 4437), in which the U.S. House of
Representatives took the first small steps toward
retrieving immigration from chaos.
The New York Times
reports that the U.S.
Conference of Catholic Bishops has "called on
President Bush to oppose the measure publicly." [Bill
on Illegal-Immigrant Aid Draws Fire, December
30, 2005, By Rachel L. Swarns]
Bishop Gerald Barnes of San Bernardino launched a
major salvo by writing to Congress, "The legislation
would place parish, diocesan and social service program
staff at risk of criminal prosecution simply for
performing their jobs."
A Washington Times editorial
responded pointedly that there is no such provision
in the legislation: it targets alien smuggling rings.
In other words, don`t expect the Bishops to tell the
truth about immigration.
Forget all the fake piety and good-works nonsense.
Immigration is entirely a self-interest project with
Vaticrats, particularly to populate empty pews.
According to the National Conference of Catholic Bishops
Office of Hispanic Affairs, Hispanics accounted for
71 percent of the growth in the U.S. Catholic Church
from 1960 to 1999.
Many rank-and-file Catholics have become displeased
with the world-class hypocrisy of an institution that
has protected pervert priests for decades, but condemns
to hell anyone who uses birth control. Apparently, as
good authoritarians, the Catholic hierarchy prefers
passively obedient parishioners—rather than educated
Americans who are capable of critical analysis.
Credulous Mexicans fresh from the pueblo are seen as
ideal fillers of pews.
Immigration`s unforgiving math looks good to the
Catholic Bishops. By holding the door open, they hasten
the day when America will become a
majority Catholic country, probably later this
century if Hispanic immigration continues at its current
Throughout its history, the United States has been a
Protestant nation. That culture is reflected in the
choices made by the Founders in shaping the country. As
Professor Samuel Huntington, the
master analyst of culture and
critic of Mexican immigration, has observed:
Now America is being resettled via immigration that
is reversing the culture which built one of history`s
most successful societies. The progress-prone values of
Americans are being displaced by members of
progress-resistant cultures—in the compelling
analysis of Prof. Lawrence Harrison—and the results
are seen in
shocking rates of school dropouts among
Hispanic high schoolers, elevated
Some in the Church have been so bold as to speak
openly of a
"peaceful conquest" by Mexican Catholics whom
they prefer to America`s current residents:
"…America is a dying nation. I tell the Mexicans when
I am down in Mexico to keep on having children, and then
take back what
we took from them: California,
Texas, Arizona, and then to take the rest of the
country as well." (The Wanderer, St. Paul, MN
May 6, 1987, citing Father Paul Marx)
Let us not forget that the Catholic Church in America
is still in the middle of a multi-year
legal struggle, fighting against the victims of
sexual abuse by pedophile priests, as it tries to avoid
financial collapse. Payouts in the
Los Angeles Diocese alone could surpass $1 billion.
Portland Diocese declared bankruptcy in 2004.
The diminished respect Americans have for the
Catholic Church is shown by
late-night television commentary:
- "The House
Transportation Committee is now considering a bill
that would allow
pilots to carry guns for protection. I`ve got a
better idea, why not give guns to altar boys, give
them a fighting chance." — Jay Leno
- "In Boston, it looks
like Cardinal Bernard Law
isn`t going to be punished. It turns out he`s
getting transferred to
Rome, which is kind of like a promotion. He said
today he wanted to thank all the little people."
— Jay Leno
- "The Catholic Church is
finally cracking down. Here`s the deal now: if a
transferred to another parish, he cannot take
his live-in boyfriend." — David Letterman
And yet the Vaticrats still act like they have moral
authority. In their spiritual arrogance, they continue
to scold law-abiding American citizens who merely insist
that immigration be legal, controlled and reduced.
The Church drones on about "welcoming to the
stranger," one of its beloved catch-phrases and a
rare reference to scripture, [VDARE.COM
Matthew 25, " I was
a stranger, and ye took me in"
"The stranger that [is] within thee shall get up
above thee very high; and thou shalt come down very low"]
though it seems uninterested in Jesus` admonition to
unto Caesar that which is Caesar`s."
Many Catholic priests obviously regard immigration as
right, not a privilege granted by the American
people. In Brownsville, the Church busied itself in
September with attacking Texas Minutemen, whose only sin
protecting their country.
Organizing in conjunction with the
Catholic Church makes sense because the church`s
pro-immigration, said Father Michael Seifert of San
Felipe de Jesús.
"Any family in economic
need has a right to immigrate, that`s our posture,
if a family is hungry and the family needs work, then
society should provide a way for people to do that,"
Seifert said. [Church organizing anti-Minuteman
campaign, By Sara Inés Calderón,
The Brownsville Herald September 5, 2005]
Since there are
literally billions of people "in economic need"
across the world, following the Church`s teaching would
result in political, economic and social anarchy that
Camp of the Saints look like Disneyland. On a
crowded planet of six billion souls, genuine
work in the home countries to improve lives.
In addition to its part in Catholicizing America, the
Church also benefits by
raking in big money for providing "immigrant"
services. As a result of faith-based dispensation of
money, Migrant and Refugee Services receives more than
$40 million in taxpayer funds (according to a sizable
PDF report on the
USCCB`s website, see a
screen snap here).
As a modern social services provider, the Church
celebrates diversity (and follows non-discrimination
laws) by resettling a variety of refugees, from
shamanist Hmong to Muslim
Somalis. Catholic Charities is in the forefront of
repopulating America with immigrants, some of whom are
extremely diverse that they
may not become self-supporting in their lifetimes.
It`s not like there are no important challenges for
the Vatican to tackle. Given the threat which
radical Islam constitutes for
western civilization, the Holy See might usefully
spend more time explaining the
danger of the coming Muslim Europe, aka
Eurabia (another demographic idiocy). There is some
good news on this front, since the new Pope is
apparently more realistic about Islam than his
Koran-kissing predecessor. Pope
Benedict has spoken more forcefully against
terrorism than John Paul II, a welcome change.
Here in the United States, the
Conference of Catholic Bishops has a leftist,
open-borders agenda. But that`s at odds with their
counterparts in Europe, where many immigrants are
unfriendly Sons of Allah.
Cardinal Biffi caused a controversy in 2000 when he
recommended that Italy
"protect its national identity" and give
preference to Catholic immigrants over Muslim ones.

Sadly, the close of Migration Week will not bring an

Perhaps some patriotic friends of sovereignty might
show up at the local cathedral to defend the moral high
ground against the hypocrites—just as the
anti-pedophile protestors did a few years back. A
stronger statement of disapproval is overdue.
As its actions have shown, the American Catholic
Church is just another special interest group with an
immigration agenda damaging to the common good.
