From the Franciscan Action Network website, we see that they will honor Eliseo Medina for his "work with immigration reform". This will be during their "Cardinal McCarrick Award Celebration" this Friday November 7, starting at 6pm at Trinity University in DC.
I was alerted to this by a friend who is on their email list. The email contains this curious language, not found on the webpage announcement. "We knew that no matter
yesterday's election results, we would have to work harder than ever on our
core issues: immigration, climate, peacebuilding, and money in politics." The FAN is an ostensibly Catholic organization. The issues of baby-murder, contraception, gay lifestyles, abuse of embryos - all issues having to do with intrinsic evils - should be at the top of any "issues" list for any Catholic organization. However, these serious matters aren't mentioned once! This is sadly typical of organizations shilling for progressive goals while attempting to maintain a faux-katholyc veneer.
The bio that they supplied for Medina is rather sketchy. Let's pop to wikipedia. We see that he is currently Secretary/Treasurer of the SEIU. Until recently he was one of their executive vice presidents. I've written enough on the SEIU on this blog; review some of these posts to see how anti-Christian they are.
He's also an honorary chair of the Democratic Socialists of America. Pope Piux XI declared that "no one can be a sincere Catholic and true Socialist." By bestowing honors upon this socialist, the Franciscan Action Network betrays its own stripes.
