Cardinal Mahony to offer Mass at DC march for immigration reform
March 17, 2010
Joined by three other bishops, Cardinal Roger Mahony of Los Angeles will offer a Mass for immigrants this Sunday, March 21, preceding an interfaith march for immigration reform.
The march, whose formal name is “March for America: Change Takes Courage and Faith,” is sponsored by 35 Catholic, Protestant, Jewish, and Muslim organizations. The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops and its immigration reform campaign (Justice for Immigrants) are not among the sponsors, though Justice for Immigrants has organized Cardinal Mahony’s Mass and is clearly supportive of the march.

I see the bishops' wing of the Democrat party is at it again. Let's hope their message on immigration reform is as garbled as the one was on health care reform. A confused flock is better than one moving in the wrong direction.

Once we've had ObamaCare rammed down our throats, comprehensivie immigration reform will be the next thing the Democrats and Catholic Bishops ram down our throats. Can it get any worse? What's next after this? How about taxation of the Church?
