The federal government should remove tax-exempt status from law-breaking churches whether they be catholic or protestant.
the catholic ones which support harboring illegals
and the protestant ones which allow democrat politicians who campaign from the pulpit.
Compare if you will the nations of Central and South America and the Phillippines that have strong Spanish Catholic origin and history and the USA.
The USA was largely built by Protestants who were experiencing the Reformation and the French enlightenment.
America can be said to be the shining example of both. When freed from the Roman Catholic church great things happen. When stifled by its influence there is stagnation as in the Central/South and the Philippines.
if it weren't for Columbus and Vespucci there wouldn't be an America.
Goodness, you would think this was turning into a recruiting thread for a Chick Fan Club.
I was chastised earlier on FR for warning that the Catholic church was America's worst enemy.Right you are! Too late, though. We control you already ! A Knight of Columbus behind every corner, a Jesuit in every faculty, billions of unwashed evil mindcontrolled voters behind each of our politicians!
"We must find a way to bring them out of the shadows and incorporate them into society, said the bishops."
Yeah, right man! Good luck Father.
These immigrants are not economic refugees who were starving in Mexico but simply people who are greedy to make more money and who were willing to break our law to get it. I think Catholicism has something to say about that kind of behavior"
Maledictus qui transfert terminos proximi sui et dicet omnis populus amen
Which translates to:
Deuteronomy Chapter 27:17. Cursed be he that removeth his neighbor's landmarks: and all the people shall say: Amen.
I believe this is normally understood as the 10th of the Ten Commandments: Thou shall not covet they neighbor's property.
Folks, we have a WINNER !!
Hang 'em High!
Protect our borders and coastlines from all foreign invaders!
Support our Minutemen Patriots!
Be Ever Vigilant ~ Bump!
Perhaps the good bishops would like to pray for the Americans killed by illegal alien drunk drivers and the victims of rapes prepetrated by illegal aliens. When they're done praying for these victime they can do some penance for aiding and abetting these criminals and then STFU.
But they do have something in common with president Bush. They too, must believe in a "new America".
We are now one of the largest Spanish-speaking nations in the world. We're a major source of Latin music, journalism and culture.
Just go to Miami, or San Antonio, Los Angeles, Chicago or West New York, New Jersey ... and close your eyes and listen. You could just as easily be in Santo Domingo or Santiago, or San Miguel de Allende.
For years our nation has debated this change -- some have praised it and others have resented it. By nominating me, my party has made a choice to welcome the new America.

The last thing they are is economically ignorant. They know who fills the donation boxes and who gives to the special funds. All organized religions know the dollar is second only to the Saviour.
I hear you, yet I suggest you hang in and tell it like you see it. Any who strongly criticize the Catholic Church had their own reasons before the AZ bishops spoke out.
I don't object to thoughtful questioning. Blame it on our God-given brains, I guess.
Along with these questions, though, the Catholic Church deserves praise for any and all good it has done. Let's not throw the good out with the not-so-good.
This feller's got a good idea...It's claimed there is billions in gold in and under the Vatican...Let's round these illegal criminals up and send them to Italy...I say let the 'church' give back a little of what it pulls in...After all, I'm a very compassionate person...
If they want them here, they should have to support them 100%. They do not. Catholic Charities is responsible for a lot of this illegal pandering...
In Los Angeles, they started the day labor camps. Now they are tired of paying to keep them going and the taxpayers are having these centers dumped in their lap.
Shame shame shame on the Catholic Church of Arizona
