The Pope issues support for amnesty, U.S. Catholic Bishop's pro-illegal immigration efforts - 05/18/12

... countries; see the link. The US Conference of Catholic Bishops are enabling bad parenting: they're encouraging people to put their children in a precarious situation rather than encouraging them to remain in their home countries and reform their systems. The Bishops are in effect encouraging people to try to cross the desert, with some dying along the way (see false compassion). What the U.S....

Media Violence Fast: far-left religious groups cover up support for illegal activity with false claims of "hate" - 10/17/09

Between October 19 and 26, a group of far-left religious groups [1] will be conducting a "Media Violence Fast" during which they're encouraging their members to avoid violence in the media; that wouldn't be such a bad goal if all they were doing was avoiding entertainment programs. Of course, they aren't doing just that. Instead, they're using the "hate speech" label to both paper over the fact...
