For all my Catholic readers who are fed up with the decision of may Bishops and Priests to support amnesty, join the discussion at Rebellion Blog and weigh in. We are blessed to have a very conservative Priest, however our Bishop has written me when I refused to donate to a Catholic charity that openly supported amnesty. It is a shame that so many in the Church leadership are putting their own liberal agenda above their duty to follow the law.
Our Lord was clear that we were to render onto Caesar what is Caesar’s. The Church is not being asked to deny the Lord therefore they are obligated to follow our immigration laws. I feel that many in the Christian community, and not just the Catholic Church, are replacing God with government. It is not the government’s job to help the poor, it is the Church’s and by allowing the government to take more and more of the Church’s responsibilities we have abdicate our responsibility to show our Lord Jesus Christ’s love through compassionate works.
