God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

About Me

My photo
A Catholic who follows Rome & the Magisterium. I'm against gay "marriage", abortion, embryonic stem cell research, euthanasia, human cloning. Altar girls, Communion in the hand, Eucharistic Ministers and "Protestant" music in the Church doesn't bother me at all. A proud American retired submarine sailor. Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

The pope comes out for illegal aliens (yawn)

So the Pope is calling for more compassion for immigrants, both legal and illegal, to this country? And a fair number of people have their panties twisted up their ass about this?

Get over it.

First, I'm all for putting up a fence on BOTH the northern and southern borders. Let's not do things halfway either. Mine the perimeters on both sides, when Juan or Jose get blown to bits it's a case of, "too bad, so sad".

Second, let's nail to the wall all employers who KNOWINGLY hire illegals. Wrist slaps aren't worth a damn.

Deport the bastards to whatever country they entered the States in. Let them be the problem of Mexico or Canada. Too bad if they're not native to those nations either.

Now that I've established my bona fides regarding illegal aliens, let's get back to the Pope.

He's the Vicar of Christ on Earth. He's not an American, not a Mexican, I doubt if he would even identify himself as an Austrian these days and if he did someone should correct him on that. He's beyond national preferences.

His concern is the welfare of God's children on Earth. Not just the legal ones, not just the noncriminals. Not just the Catholics either. He has to look at mankind in general with the eyes required by his position.

So screaming that he's acting against the best interests of this country means zilch. He doesn't CARE about the best interests of this or any other country. Nor should he. Religious leaders, especially THIS one, live and judge others by different standards than you or I. If they didn't they wouldn't be worthy of the position they occupy.

And Catholics are bound to take his words and follow them to the best of their ability and according to the best interpetation they can give them. That doesn't automatically mean we'll march lockstep to the various legislatures and demand open borders.

It should mean we examine our motives in whatever we do and try to bring them into conformance with what we feel is God's desire for us all.

And in that we might find ourselves in seeming disagreement with the Pope. Another "too bad, so sad" moment.
