Orange County Catholic Church: fast for immigration "reform"

The local leaders of the Catholic Church are using lent as a pretext to push for immigration "reform", aka a massive amnesty:
[Cardinal Roger M. Mahony] said he would travel to Washington in early March to encourage lawmakers to "take active steps" toward immigration reform...

At St. Boniface Catholic Church in Anaheim, Auxiliary Bishop Jaime Soto, a longtime champion of immigrant rights, proposed that parishioners fast to reflect on the problem...

...Soto said he conceived the fast for immigration reform with other Orange County Catholic leaders who shared his concern about immigration issues...

...Soto asked parishioners to fill out cards that will be sent to members of Congress, urging them to enact reforms. The Los Angeles Archdiocese conducted a similar postcard campaign last year. Soto said 15 of Orange County's 60 parishes had asked for the cards in recent weeks.

Soto said that although Orange County was "ground zero" for opponents of immigration reform, he was "hopeful that even people who have trouble with the church's position on immigration might dedicate a day to fasting and come to a new understanding that this can be beneficial for all."
To the extent that fasting reduces your ability to reason, yes indeed it would be helpful to coming to a "new understanding". So would downing a pint of tequila.

As I have a few times before, I strongly urge everyone to go to public events or similar where these open border bishops speak and try to publicly ask them tough questions designed to discredit their positions. Discrediting them isn't hard at all, the hard part is finding a public forum where they're willing to engage in a dialogue about their positions.


by the way Jamie soto is a find tool for the enemies of freedom.

The end game is Mexico/drug dealers/Bin Laden lovers here and now, "with you standing in front of a wall someday", understand what is happening to you!

And the local open borders paper is helping their campaign: Puff Piece Alert!
