Breitbart: President and CEO of Catholic Charities USA, Dominican Sister Donna Markham, says it is “deeply heartbreaking” that nearly 800,000 illegal aliens do not have amnesty to permanently remain in the United States.
After multiple amnesty plans failed to pass through Congress this week, leaders of the Catholic Church are decrying the lack of amnesty for illegal aliens enrolled in the President Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
In an interview with American Magazine, the Catholic leaders — also fervent supporters of open borders — pleaded with Congress to immediately pass amnesty for illegal aliens.
Opinion: Pope Francis has made no secret of his opposition to Donald Trump’s wall, even celebrating a Mass on the border of Mexico and the US. So, is it Francis’ compassion for the migrant or is there some other motivator?
In 2015 the Washington Times reported “Not to be lost in the pomp and circumstance of Pope Francis’ first visit to Washington is the reality that the Catholic Church he oversees has become one of the largest recipients of federal largesse in America. The Church and related Catholic charities and schools have collected more than $1.6 billion since 2012 in U.S.”
In Fiscal Year 2016, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) received more than $91 million in government funding for refugee resettlement.
From the article:
“Much of this $1 billion in annual revenue goes to voluntary agencies (VOLAGs), several of which are Christian non-profits, such as Catholic Charities, Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, World Relief Corporation, Church World Service, and Domestic and Foreign Missionary Service of the Episcopal Church of the USA, (also referred to as Episcopal Migration Ministries), who are contracted on behalf of the government to help these refugees get settled in their new homes in America.”
One of our readers commented last week on a post about a Swedish Lutheran preacher from who referred to the Islamic call to prayer as ‘good for society‘:
“The Lutheran Church has never really abandoned many of their Catholic roots and traditions. And much like the Catholic Church, the Lutheran Church has formed a very liberal mindset when it comes to dealing with all things Biblical. According to them pretty much everything in the Bible is up for random interpretation. Not a Christian? No problem! God will accept you in Heaven. Don’t believe in God? Don’t sweat it! You still get to go to Heaven.”
Random interpretation, or allegorical reading of Scripture was endorsed by 3rd century Church father Origen who was called the ‘father of allegory’. One century later Chrysostom and Augustine continued the teaching which became the basis for Catholic and Protestant ideology distorting the literal word of prophecy for the next 1700 years.
