Cardinal Mahony addresses large immigration march in Washington

Catholic World News - March 22, 2010

A large interfaith march for immigration reform took place in the nation’s capital on March 21. Following Mass at a Washington parish, Cardinal Roger Mahony of Los Angeles told the crowd that “the Catholic Church stands with you, and is in this fight until the end.”

“The Democrats campaigned for Latino votes with a lot of immigration promises, so we'll see if they don't act on what they promised,” he said after the rally.

    What is it with our church? Does it long for what has happened to the church in most of Latin America to happen here? Have we become so confused bythe notion of "Social Justice"? Social Justice is merely the euphenism the communists/progressives/socialists have come up with for the forced redistribution of wealth. Immigration reform that we usually see comprises granting citizenship to people who have violated our laws. A country that fails to maintain its borders will soon cease to exist.

    I hope "immigration reform" doesn't mean what "health care reform" did, or the bishops are apt to get tripped up by the politicians again. The faithful still haven't figured out what the Church was for and what they were against in health care reform The bishops just seemed to be backing the Democrats. Maybe the bishops should stick to teaching as Jesus did and leave the politics to Caesar.
