The usual suspects performed the standard whine on behalf of lawbreaking foreigners in Los Angeles on Friday. Archbishop Jose Gomez led an interfaith gaggle of liberal religious robe-a-dopes in a vigil for the long-suffering foreigners who have come to steal American jobs and grab other freebies.
In January, Los Angeles’ unemployment rate fell below 9 percent [...]
A week ago, I reported on the Speaker of the House inviting the pope to speak before Congress, something that has never happened before and would be quite a blow to the separation of church and state. Pope Francis has not yet accepted as of this writing, but it’s hard to imagine he wouldn’t, given [...]
No Pope has ever spoken to the Congress before, but the Speaker thinks that it’s fine to offer him a uniquely high honor (and violate the separation of church and state) even though the nation is still majority Protestant (52 percent, more than double the number of Catholics).
What is the purpose of the invitation? Is [...]
Typically, professional Catholic handwringers fret about Mexicans suffering in Mexico, and conclude it’s America’s fault. The specific Mexicans are deported individuals, so they are willful lawbreakers exhibiting hostility to American sovereignty and to the people of this country.
Tijuana’s tent city of deportees, aka La Mapa, is filled with hundreds of dome camper tents.
Plus, the writer [...]
Monday’s front page of the Los Angeles Times had a headline that was ever-so-slightly critical of the former Catholic Cardinal who presided over the local diocese: “INTO THE LIGHT, As the clergy abuse scandal unfolds, Roger Mahony’s moral authority — and his legacy — erodes.”
It was part of a feature article that was unduly kind [...]
The list of forces against American sovereignty and citizenship is long and powerful. One of the founding members of the open-borders gaggle is the Catholic church, which wants to import more customers for what it’s selling, to replace the falling attendance among American Catholics. The church even discourages assimilation to keep foreigners dependent on its [...]
There’s a new Pope in the Vatican, and he is still making a first impression. So far, we have seen TLC, hugs and a simpler lifestyle. He recently announced his first foreign foray, and he chose Lampedusa as the place to display his special papal compassion regarding the deaths of several Africans on their way [...]
The Catholic church has upped its bankroll to wreck American law and sovereignty. It has added $800,000 to its previous amnesty spending of $3 million, since opening the borders to millions more hispanic Catholics is highly desirable for the bishops.
Not that it’s new for Vaticrats to work to subvert a nation that has been very [...]
The case of Cardinal Roger Mahony is a reminder that justice delayed is justice denied; if a perp can slow down the functioning of the legal system for years, then memories fade, the urgency to prosecute dissolves and the statute of limitations kicks in. Mahony has been involved in a continuing cover-up of criminal activity [...]
Top catholics must be secretly rubbing their hands in glee at Obama’s clumsy handling of the requirement that birth control be included in healthcare plans provided by the church’s institutions like colleges. The controversy has given them a opportunity to pave over the years of bad news concerning child-molesting priests and to refurbish their image [...]
Now that Timothy Dolan has been promoted by the Vatican to Cardinal, he has become more welcome on big media. There is a meme going around that the press-savvy New York cleric could become the first American Pope, which makes him something of a hot property as religious figures go.
One of his favorite topics is [...]
The recent contraception kerfuffle and the ensuing debate about “religious freedom” must have made the Catholic church in America feel like it had some moral authority to weigh in on other issues. The debate started when a Georgetown student complained that her university health plan did not include contraceptives because she attended a catholic school.
