An Australian Reader Reminds Us Of Courage Under
(Immigrant) Fire

Apparently, we are all "ignorant."  This
article illustrates how the Catholic Conference of
Bishops (now

taken over
by a very

leftist, socialist agenda
) snubs their noses at the
facts and harmful effects upon our society due to
rampant, uncontrolled, illegal immigration.  [Too
many Catholics believe immigration myths, bishops`

Calling us (those who oppose rewarding 20 million
illegal aliens with citizenship, and access to all our
social services)  all "ignorant" does nothing to
advance their misguided cause on behalf of 20 million
illegal aliens currently present in this country.  The
arrogance is mind-boggling.  According to the

National Conference Of Catholic Bishops,
reformers are now not only "racists,"


but we are "ignorant."

I dealt with this in

a blog post last year.

The Seattle Cathedral has a very

similar list of talking points online
What are called "myths" in the latest story are all

“Too many of our fellow Catholics believe the myths:
immigrants are

; immigrants

don`t pay taxes
immigrants are

a drain on public resources

don`t want to integrate

within our society; immigrants are

taking our jobs
. None
of these perceptions are real,” Franken said, adding
that for “many, many people perception is fact.”

When he says "None of
these perceptions are real,”
he seems to  actually
believe this, which is a manifestation of what is known

"Invincible Ignorance."
