San Diego bishop rips border wall

CWN Editor's Note: “It is a sad day for our country when we trade the majestic, hope-filled symbolism of the Statue of Liberty for an ineffective and grotesque wall which both displays and inflames the ethnic and cultural divisions that have long been the underside of our national history,” said Bishop Robert McElroy. “Our faith is in the God who is the Father of us all, and who urges us to see Jesus himself in the immigrants and refugees who seek safety and freedom.”

    Perhaps Bishop McElroy should concern himself more with the cause of the problem, which is rampant Mexican atheism forced on the Mexican people by a Communist revolution that decimated the Catholic faith and left the country in a state of superstition and unbelief. The illegal border crossings and flood of refugees are a symptom to be treated in a temporary way, but it is the cause that the Church should focus its efforts on. Tear the anti-Christian articles out of the Mexican Constitution.
