Skip to comments.Bishops Stage Pro-Immigration Border Mass in Texas..(“there is no ‘us’ and ‘them.’”)
Posted on 11/03/2019 7:48:03 AM PST by caww
Bishops from the U.S. and Mexico held a highly political Mass at the border separating their two countries on Saturday morning, insisting in a statement that there is no us and them........ Last month, Bishop Seitz wrote a searing pastoral letter denouncing President Trumps border wall as a monument to hate and a symbol of exclusion and racism.
Borders, in the spirit of the Eucharist, exist not to separate and divide, but to identify and complement one another.
The wall deepens racially charged perceptions of how we understand the border as well as Mexicans and migrants. It extends racist talk of an invasion. It perpetuates the racist myth that the area south of the border is dangerous and foreign and that we are merely passive observers in the growth of narco-violence and the trafficking of human beings and drugs, he said.
Borders are where we encounter each other and create thriving communities in unity and diversity.

Luke 12:51 Do you think that I have come to bring peace to the earth? No, I tell you, but division..
That the New Jerusalem has walls and gates, and a security checkpoint with a list of names.....
Nehemiah also built a wall to protect the people.
2nd Chronicles; Chapter 14: verse 7 " Therefore he said unto Judah, Let us build these cities, and make about them walls, and towers, gates, and bars, while the land is yet before us; because we have sought the LORD our God, we have sought him, and he hath given us rest on every side. So they built and prospered. 2nd Chronicles 14:7
There are US citizens and there are fraudulently documented foreigners who break into our country and break all of our laws.
Yes, there is an “us and them”.
What they want to do is to turn Mexicans into Texans, to get friends and family American citizenship so that they can enjoy the benefits. They also want to increase their political power, because these new Mexicans become Texans will support them. They just dress it up in all the other language to conceal their true purpose. They could help out poor Mexicans if they wanted to without giving them citizenship, but helping out the poor isn’t what this is really about.
Yes there is.
These bishops are with “them”.
Try to work, own property, or just squat on the dole in Mexico as a gringo, and tell me how you are treated. There is a difference, whether it’s utopian or not.
Have you ever seen the residence of a bishop? They are always large and roomy. So I suggest that the bishops lead by example. Open up your residences to literally anyone, bishops.
But you must play by your own rules. No checking for past criminal history. No limitations on family size. In fact, no limitations at all.
Bishops, practice what you preach.
Government handouts ARE NOT CHARITY!!!!
Also, Jeffrey Epstein didn't kill himself.
tax that church
It would hilarious if what's left of him were found floating face down in the Rio Grande.
If Seitz cared so much, he’d live across the border and minister to the drug cartels and murder gangs.
Bishop Seitz is described as far left.
The problem isn’t immigrants, it is illegal immigrants. The bishops should demonstrate their lack of concern for legality. From this day forward, they should be required to get all their health care from undocumented physicians and nurses practicing without licenses, all their medications from illegal drug labs.
Oh, yes: they should also read Romans Chapter 13 and preach on that.
Tax the church.
If these commies want open borders, let them pay real estate on all church properties. Time to get some skin in the game.
Yeah, I’d like those Bishops to ‘splain that wall. And when is the Pontif going to open the doors to the poor, oppressed, masses? There’s just got to be room in the Vatican somewhere...
Bet the hypocrite locks his front door every night.
Maybe they should look around for that murdered couples RV in Mexico while they’re down there.
“...real estate TAXES...”
Oh, I doubt that. I’m sure he has one of his pee-ons do it.
