Although I saw the reprint on the website of the Diocese of Green Bay Wisconsin, it is an article published by the Catholic News Service - the official media outlet for the USCCB. Read it, paying attention to the last few paragraphs. Their big concern is the reduced funding that the USCCB might experience, along with USCCB jobs.
Now, once again, guess who's really paying for all this resettlement? One of those funding sources can be found staring at you from your mirror. Your tax dollars are being diverted to the USCCB for the benefit of poorly vetted "refugees" while many of you are struggling to support your own families.
Meanwhile, some so-called "Catholic" leaders scribbled off a letter to President Trump touting the "seamless garment" nonsense as authentic Catholic teaching. With immigration are progressive pet projects such as abolition of death penalty, climate change junk science. Let's look at some of these organizations, shall we?
We examine the web page of Columbian Center for Advocacy and Outreach. Immediately you can see their focus. They address the progressive hot-button issues, while uttering not one peep about baby-murder, euthanasia, evils of homosexual conduct, protection of marriage. Are we surprised?
Then there's Catholic Mobilizing Network. I always find it helpful to browse an organization's board of directors to get an understanding of the mindsets of those running the group. Immediately we see trouble in the presence of Ralph McCloud. Not only has he presided over the diversion of Catholic dollars to anti-God organizations as long-time head of the CCHD, but he was treasurer of the campaign for Wendy "Abortion Barbie" Davis to the Texas legislature. Put his name in the search box at the top of this blog. One of their sponsors is the Congregation of St. Joseph. They too are all about progressive causes, with an unhealthy smattering of new age poison thrown into the mix (see here, scroll all the way down).
Regarding some of the other organizations, just put "Catholic Climate Covenant" and "Leadership Conference of Women Religious" in that search box to see just how far they have wandered from the One True Faith.
If anyone from President Trump's administration is reading this, please be assured that the letter you received and the racket emanating from the USCCB is not rooted in the Catholic faith. Real Catholics are delighted that President Trump is in the White House. Mr. Gorsuch's nomination seems very promising. We thank the president for taking action to control the immigration situation in the United States.
