CATHOLIC CHURCH PAID $79 MILLION BY OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO FORCE MIGRANT INVASION

According to their financial statement for 2014, the latest year for which figures are available, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops received over $79 million in government grants to provide benefits to refugees.

CATHOLIC CHURCH FACILITATES FOREIGN INVASION AS PAID AGITATOR

In an NTEB Special Report, we have recently received information that the Catholic Church received payments totalling $79,590,512.00 to facilitate the flow of undocumented and illegal immigrants into the United States in 2014. This is six million dollars more than they were paid in 2013. Now you know why Pope Francis is so eager to push Obama’s insane flood of illegal migrants, he’s getting paid millions to do it!

While this man understands what is going on, he does not understand one of the main culprits involved. The Vatican has its own political agenda at odds with the Constitution of the United Staes of America and all freedom loving people. The goal of the Vatican is not to allow drug lords and terrorists into the country save the destabilization they might cause, it is to gain the political clout to overthrow the Constitution and Capitalism in order to establish the globalist agenda from within a very powerful nation.

Please understand that I am referring to migration per se… I am not arguing the validity, rights, or legitimacy of war refugees’ plight. My interest here is solely focused on the phenomenon war created, this grand human tragedy which certain powers have weaponized to serve unscrupulous imperialistic ambitions.

Mass migration, it needs to be said, has long been exploited by devious entities as part of a new military genre: asymmetrical warfare.

In a powerful essay published in Strategic Insights, Kelly Greenhill defined such a tactic under “coercive engineered migrations,” noting: “those cross-border population movements that are deliberately created or manipulated in order to induce political, military and/or economic concessions from a target state or states.”

Elaborating on her theory she went on to add: “Coercive engineered migration is often embedded within mass migrations strategically engineered for dispossessive, exportive, or militarized reasons. It is likely, at least in part as a consequence of its embedded and often camouflaged nature, that its prevalence has also been generally under-recognized and its significance, underappreciated. Indeed, it is a phenomenon that for many observers has been hiding in plain sight.”

One side is flooding the United States with illegal aliens and brining in countless numbers of 3rd world refugees in an effort to create a new electorate... constituents for a socialist Democrat Party... a Free Stuff Army.

On the other side... America watches as the Nation is being transformed by massive immigration and migration.  We watch as taxpaying citizens are targeted by an ever growing body of subsidized identity groups, who are quick to label us as racist, sexist, xenophobic or homophobic, if we question the cultural changes in our neighborhoods.  America is under siege from within and it isn't responding appropriately.

Our enemies have no hope of defeating our military... instead, they have engaged in a new type of asymmetrical warfare. Their strategy is to attack the American homeland thru massive migration.  Under the Obama Administration government immigration and refugee policy has shifted from a sensible balance between US interests and humanitarian aid, to embrace open borders and a no limit immigration and refugee policy, focused on the importation of problematic groups from Islam and the Mid-East.

The goal of our current immigration policy appears to be contrary to our National interest...  the present Administration apparently wants to fundamentally transform the DEMOGRAPHICS of America; by importing as many foreign born Muslims and third world aliens, as possible, before the elections in November 2016.  The Administration has created a whole new agency, with the mission, to fast track these new immigrants citizenship, in time, to vote in November 2016 elections.  America is being invaded by her enemies, with the intent of subverting our electoral process, challenging and ultimately transforming our government and culture.

The ultimate goal of the current immigration and refugee policy... is to transform America... thru asymmetrical migration warfare. The world is entering an entirely new age of warfare. A generation where armies are not aligned on fronts and nations are not opposed by regular or irregular armed forces.  This new generation of warfare will not engage conventional weapons. The weapons of this generation will be cultural conflict and the massive migration of populations.  The Christian West will soon find itself facing its long term nemesis, Islam, braking down its doors with millions of Muslim migrants.


Once again, the article either misses or deliberately diverts attention away from the fact that most immigrants are not Muslim, but Catholic. Focusing upon the dangers of Islamic political agenda and ignoring the globalist, socialist or fascist leanings of the Vatican. This diversion has the country focusing on Islam while Rome is conquering from within. The radical changes occurring in this nation are not the result of a majority of Muslims within, it is the result of the continuous flow of mass immigrations of Catholics within and their ever growing presents and political influence. A comparison of the history of the migrations and political effects of the two will reveal who is really the power house changing our nation from within. It is not the Muslims who have gained enough political clout within this nation which boasts of separation of church and state, to have their religious leader address Congress and virtually our entire federal government to politically advise the same. It is the Roman Catholic Church that has already accomplished this. WAKE UP AMERICA!

Roman Catholics and Immigration in Nineteenth-Century America
Julie Byrne
Dept. of Religion, Duke University
©National Humanities Center

The story of Roman Catholicism in the nineteenth century IS the story of immigration. Until about 1845, the Roman Catholic population of the United States was a small minority of mostly English Catholics, who were often quite socially accomplished. But when several years of devastating potato famine led millions of Irish Catholics to flee to the United States in the mid 1840s, the face of American Catholicism began to change drastically and permanently. In the space of fifty years, the Catholic population in the United States suddenly transformed from a tight-knit group of landowning, educated aristocrats into an incredibly diverse mass of urban and rural immigrants who came from many different countries, spoke different languages, held different social statuses, and emphasized different parts of their Catholic heritage.

Many members of other faiths—Jews, Protestants, and even some Muslims, Hindus and Buddhists—arrived in the successive waves of massive immigration to the United States between the 1840s and 1920s. But Catholics from various countries were the most numerous—and the most noticed. In 1850 Catholics made up only five percent of the total U.S. population. By 1906, they made up seventeen percent of the total population (14 million out of 82 million people)—and constituted the single largest religious denomination in the country.

All emphasis mine

Quote
The pope himself oversees the Migrants and Refugees Section of the Vatican Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development, and he has approved specific "action points" or concrete proposals the Vatican wants to see incorporated into the global compacts.

The 20 points, drafted in consultation with several bishops' conferences and Catholic organizations working with refugees and migrants, are explained in separate notes. One, addressed to bishops and other pastoral leaders, aims to educate Catholics and build public support for policies to guarantee an appropriate welcome, protection, promotion and integration of migrants and refugees. The other is addressed more specifically to politicians and those involved in drafting the compacts.

In his message for World Day of Migrants and Refugees 2018, a text released in August, Pope Francis mentioned several of the action points, including pleas to expand the pathways and processes for legal migration; to end the practice of putting unaccompanied minors in jail-like detention centers; and to halt "collective and arbitrary expulsions of migrants and refugees."........................

The Vatican position recognizes "the right of every state to manage and control its borders," but it also insists nations live up to the obligations they accepted when becoming parties to international agreements on human rights, the protection of refugees and the rights of children.

Priest probed for aiding illegal immigration

TRAPANI- Don Mussie Zerai, a priest once nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, is under investigation for allegedly facilitating illegal immigration, according to Public Prosecutor’s Office reports.

 The inquiry follows statements made by two security workers on the Vos Hestia ship of Save the Children, who claimed that team leaders on NGO boats have a secret group chat and mentioned Don Zerai’s name. They said that the priest received communications from migrants on board dinghies and acted as a go-between by communicating with NGO crew members to set a day, time and position for rescue missions.

Emotional blackmail consequent on irresponsible delegation of systemic responsibility

Whilst identifying itself with the divine mandate and the systemic responsibility thereby accorded, the Catholic Church skillfully distances itself from the secular consequences of multiplication of the population. Any unfortunate consequences in terms of starvation, misery and fatality are dissociated from that systemic role. They are held to be the responsibility of the governments and peoples of the world whose actions should necessarily guided by insight into the divine will, preferably as provided by the Catholic Church.

Strategic challenges of ensuring adequate food, shelter, social security, health, and the like, are then the responsibility of governments informed by their electorates -- inspired by the moral and ethical guidance of the Catholic Church. If it is only too evident from widespread suffering that governments are inadequate to the task -- or to similar tasks in the wealthier countries -- again this is seemingly no cause for consideration of more appropriate strategies to relieve that suffering.

Ensuring evident suffering is thus to be recognized as a device for placing moral pressure on secular authorities, much as beggars in the streets make evident their own suffering as a means blackmailing passers-by to support them. There is consequently a curious indifference to suffering, presumably held by the Catholic Church to be serving a higher cause (Indifference to the Suffering of Others: occupying the moral and ethical high ground through doublespeak, 2013). There is thus a sense in which the Catholic Church specializes in engendering a sense of guilt in others as a consequence of its own policies -- in order to derive resources from them for a higher cause with which is uniquely identifies itself.

From this perspective, there is a case for exploring the possibility of taking the interpretation of the divine mandate even more seriously -- by multiplying to an even higher degree the growth in the population, as argued separately (Enabling Fruitful Multiplication of Global Population: eliciting massive social consensus by unconstrained reframing of strategic priorities, 2015). That this possibility has been taken seriously by some is an indication of the strategic challenge of the times.

In this light it needs to be clearly affirmed that the Catholic Church takes no responsibility whatsoever for the suffering which its theological and diplomatic arguments have enabled and continue to enable. As with the wealthy down the ages, the cynicism of this position is disguised by publicizing its charitable initiatives and advocating universal support for them. Characteristic of doublespeak, these are designed to respond to a limited number of selected sufferers -- ignoring the systemic suffering which continues to be fruitfully multiplied by those policies.

Curiously no sense of the need for prudence and precaution is cultivated on the part of the faithful faced with shortage of resources, as may be variously illustrated (Resource Insights from Plus or Minus 12 People on a Liferaft: thought experiment to highlight global dilemmas in a comprehensible context, 2014). This is evident from the size of families of the impoverished faithful of Abrahamic religions.

In this respect the Catholic Church has indeed demonstrated its acclaimed leadership role -- especially for other Christian denominations. Ironically the current massive migration of refugees across the Mediterranean could even be explored as a case of strategic blowback, namely an unforeseen systemic response to its population policies. This could be understood as analogous to the process recognized in the case of American global strategy, as variously discussed (Chalmers Johnson, Blowback: the costs and consequences of American Empire, 2004; William Rivers Pitt, The True History of Blowback in One Sentence, TruthOut, 23 October 2014; Mary Anne Weaver, Blowback, The Atlantic, May 1996).

Catholic Church Facilitates Foreign Invasion

by Cliff Kincaid on November 19, 2015

In the face of President Obama’s veto threat, members of Congress may not be able to pass legislation suspending or upgrading the program permitting refugees from Syria, the Middle East and North Africa to settle in the U.S. But the Republican Congress certainly has the power to hold hearings into the millions of taxpayer dollars being funneled through Catholic and other church groups to bring them here. Many Catholics and non-Catholics alike would like to know how “religious compassion,” using federal money, is increasing the potential terrorist threat to America.

Pope Francis: Destroyer of Christianity By Peter West

  I have been making this claim, with some controversy here over the years, that Pope Francis hates the West, is a commo Pope, and wants to see the West go down.  A discussion of just these points has appeared now in the mainstream press: Tess Livingstone, “Pro-Migrant Pope ‘Aspires to Destroy Christianity’”, The Australian, July 19, 2017, p. 12; http://www.theaustralian.com.au/opinion/promigrant-pope-francis-aspires-to-destroy-christianity/news-story/76be2aee290dacbaa9417aa8af5abb63.

     The remarks primarily are concerned with retired Pope Benedict XVI, who recently compared the church under Pope Francis to a ship that “has taken on so much water as to be on the verge of capsizing.”  As far as criticisms go, that one is strong.
Pope Francis has called on the European nations to abandon their borders, and adopt a federal structure. He is a proponent of open borders immigration for the West, but is silent about immigration to non-white countries, because, well, he is a New World Order kinda guy.

     The Tess Livingstone article has some interesting material about Marcello Pera’ criticism of the Pope:

“One prominent figure who is unsurprised by such outbursts is Marcello Pera, a former president of the Italian Senate who co-authored a significant book, Without Roots: The West, Relativism, Christianity, Islam with Benedict in 2007. “The Pope reflects all the prejudices of the South American regarding North America, markets, freedom, capitalism,’’ he told Il Mattino newspaper in Naples.
Pera’s main concern is Francis’s politicisation of the church, especially his support for illegal immigration, a stance that is alienating much of his flock, including those who support generous but orderly immigration policies such as Australia’s. “Bergoglio just wants to do politics, the Gospel doesn’t matter at all,’’ Pera says, addressing Francis by his surname. Concern is strongest in Italy, the destination of Nigerians, Gambians, Sudanese and others drawn by human traffickers’ promises of a warm welcome and plenty of welfare assistance.
Italy is struggling to cope with hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants who have sailed across the Mediterranean in recent years; double-digit unemployment; youth unemployment of 40 per cent; and street crime.  Another 25,000 newcomers arrived last month, mainly from Nigeria and Guinea. The total number this year will exceed the 170,000 people, predominantly Muslim males, who arrived last year.  Some communities are in revolt over the cost of housing them and the criminal behaviour of some of the men towards women. Rome mayor Virginia Raggi recently called on the government not to send any more migrants to the city.
Despite community anger Francis has remained defiant, urging young people to be “protagonists of change” in backing mass migration without defined limitations. His attitude has prompted pertinent questions about the kind of religious and cultural melting pot he wants Europe to be.
Pera says: “It’s evident to all that an indiscriminate welcoming is not possible: there is a critical point that cannot be reached. If the Pope does not make reference to this critical point, if he insists in a massive and total welcoming, I ask myself: ‘why does he say it? What is the true end of his words? Why does he lack a minimum of realism, that very little that is requested of anyone?’ The answer I can give myself is only one: ‘the Pope does it because he hates the West, he aspires to destroy it, and he does all he can to reach this end. As he aspires to destroy the Christian tradition, Christianity as it has realised itself historically.’ ”

CATHOLIC CHURCH STOPS ACCEPTING ILLEGALS AMID TRUMP IMMIGRATION CRACKDOWN

Texas church accepted nearly 75 thousand at makeshift migrant camp amid immigrant influx

A Catholic church in South Texas is closing its doors to illegal immigrants after years of providing housing, food, clothes and water to nearly 75 thousand people.

Since 2014, the Sacred Heart Catholic Church in McAllen, Texas, has been the sanctuary destination for tens of thousands of people who crossed illegally into the US from Central America and Mexico..................................

Under the guise of providing humanitarian relief, the church’s parish hall was transformed into a staging area for thousands of illegals who’d made the perilous journey into the US, many with the help of cartels and human smugglers.

At the height of the 2014 immigrant influx, the church operated 24/7 and saw as many as 350 illegals pass through each day.

Back in 2014, Infowars was first to expose the City of McAllen was diverting taxpayer resources toward the Sacred Heart church, providing illegals with giant air-conditioned tents, cots, security guards and more.

CHURCH RAISING MONEY FOR ILLEGALS

Catholic Charities USA has taken on a major role in helping the federal government find temporary housing for the droves of Central Americans illegally crossing the border into the United States.

And it’s also helping finance the operation.

A woman at Catholic Charities headquarters in Alexandria, Virginia, told WND Friday that nobody on the group’s staff was available to talk about the border crisis outreach program because they were “all out on travel,” including the charity’s media relations officer.

“Everyone’s on travel down to the border and she is down there as well,” the woman said. “They’re going in shifts. And many of the diocesan people (from the local Catholic diocese) are down there as well.”

Meanwhile, Catholic Charities USA is making a plea for people to donate money to the cause of helping the thousands of children who continue to stream across the border.

All U.S. Catholics are called to oppose mass deportations under Trump. Here's why.

.........................................

It is clear where this administration is headed on immigration. The goal is not to legalize 11 million undocumented persons but to get rid of them. Any immigration legislation that is favorable to this administration and the current Congress would only reinforce this goal, by including several new harsh enforcement programs and by excluding any path to citizenship or legalization program. The most the bishops could hope for would be a watered-down DREAM Act, which may or may not help young undocumented immigrants become citizens...............................

Bishops must lead by example and facilitate the involvement of Catholics in supporting vulnerable immigrant families.

Malkin: Is Your Church Abetting Sanctuary Nation?

Liberal "sanctuary" programs protect, harbor and enable criminal illegal aliens who disappear into the deportation abyss.

The Catholic Church has been at the forefront of the 1960s-era sanctuary movement, with top officials openly promoting immigration anarchy and lawlessness among their flock in the name of "humanity" and "compassion."

As I've long noted, it's one thing to show compassion to legal immigrants, legitimate refugees and asylees, and those abused and mistreated by smugglers. It's quite another to conspire against an orderly immigration and entrance system that imposes common-sense limits, eligibility requirements, criminal background checks, medical screening and a commitment to assimilation. Catholic groups have contributed hundreds of thousands of dollars to building shelters for illegal aliens from Central America and way stations in southern Mexico.

The unholy alliance between church leaders and the open-borders lobby extends from the Vatican to Rev. Jim Wallis' Faith in Public Life (FPL) network, the Los Angeles-based Clergy and Laity United for Economic Justice (CLUE) and the George Soros-tied Interfaith Worker Justice (IWJ). It's a web of nearly 100 interfaith committees, campus agitators and "workers centers" steeped in the organizing tactics of Saul Alinsky on behalf of millions of illegal aliens filling the pews and coffers of their abettors.

Capitol Hill's abdication of its duties to protect and defend our borders is bad enough. But if people of faith choose to sit silently as a "new sanctuary movement" of tax-exempt houses of worship defiantly and recklessly undermines our immigration laws, our national sovereignty doesn't have a prayer.

I don't know what makes some Americans think that our Catholic entrenched and influenced government is actually going to do anything about illegal immigration. The evidence to the contrary is abundant. We will be given the run around again, citizenship will be provided again. After which they will simply begin the process over again, and again, until the Roman Catholic globalist agenda is accomplished within this nation. No more national sovereignty, free market, Capitalism, or Constitutional government for the people, by the people. Protestant principles of government and liberty with a powerful middle class, replaced by Roman Catholic principles of a two class society. Clergy and a laity dependent upon them, and the elites and a peasantry dependent upon them. The counter-reformation marches on victorious.

Obviously It’s because we have so much wealth here and so much opportunity. And quite honestly, the countries they are leaving totally stink. Can we blame them for wanting to upgrade?

No, but we can blame the Pope’s church for the deplorable condition of their home countries.

Look at the whole western hemisphere. There are abundant resources spread all across these continents. North America doesn’t have better trees, crude oil, or land than Central and South America.

But we enjoy a much better lifestyle here. Much better.

That’s because the United States of America was founded by Protestant Christians. All the other hell-hole countries in this hemisphere were founded by Catholics.

Catholicism arrests the economic growth of a nation. Even after the Reformation, Renaissance, and Enlightenment, countries in Europe that remained Catholic retained much of their Medieval thought.

In today’s modern age, Catholicism has morphed into a socialist mindset. In this Catholic Socialist system, the Church facilitates specious acts of charity on the perpetually poor to provide cover for an elite ruling class.

Really, they’re back to Lords and peasants. It’s medieval all over again. Do you recall the Pope denouncing Fidel Castro like he did Donald Trump?

VATICAN CITY — As politicians around the world including President Trump take an increasingly hard line on immigration, a powerful force is rallying to the side of migrants: the Roman Catholic Church led by Pope Francis.

Catholic cardinals, bishops and priests are emerging as some of the most influential opponents of immigration crackdowns backed by right-wing populists in the United States and Europe. The moves come as Francis, who has put migrants at the top of his agenda, appears to be leading by example, emphasizing his support for their rights in sermons, speeches and deeds.

The pro-migrant drive risks dividing Catholics — many of whom in the United States voted for Trump. Some observers say it is also inserting the church into politics in a manner recalling the heady days of Pope John Paul II, who stared down communism and declared his opposition to the 1991 Persian Gulf War. The Vatican is standing in open opposition to politicians like Trump not just on immigration but also on other issues, including climate-change policy.

The Pope, head of the Catholic Church warring against a government that has given his institution billions and billions of dollars towards migrant integration, now attacking the hand that fed him when they try to pull out of the financial ruin and political suicide associated with the same. The cost of legal and illegal immigration is enormous and a heavy weight upon the tax payers of a nation already 20 trillion dollars in debt. The effects lean toward the development of a welfare state or country if you will, not to mention politically bolstering the politicians who support the same by the votes of those dependent upon such. This usurper at the head of this usurping institution cares nothing for the peoples of existing nations save they support their own global agenda with their money and even the extinction of their nations and political structures when ever necessary. That is of course, if this was and is not already part of their plan from the beginning. A Protestant nation overthrown from within by an ever increasing Catholic population brought about through massive immigration rather than conversion. In either case, the plan or disregard for all but their own agenda produces the same results. The Church of Rome has been pointed out a the destroyer of nations in the past, and is proving mores all the time.

In all the countries over which it has triumphed, Popery, like the anaconda, has wound around its folds of art, of cunning, of superstition and of power, until, enclosing everything in its too friendly embraces, it has, with one tremendous effort, crushed the nation to death. It sends forth its missionaries; it gathers its schools and colleges; it erects its cathedrals and builds its churches; it is patriotic, benevolent, charitable. Its alms and offerings attract the vulgar, its austerities and penances convince the sceptical. It is at first tolerated; then approved; next obeyed! But now come the dread realities of the system, taxation, passive submission, excommunications, interdicts, crusades, the inquisition, destruction. Yes, Popery has well nigh destroyed every country in which it has been predominant. The liberties and national prosperity of a people cannot coexist with such a system.

The Washington Post: Stephen K. Bannon, President Trump’s former chief strategist, lashed out at leaders of the Catholic Church in the United States who condemned the president’s recent decision to phase out an Obama-era program that has allowed nearly 800,000 undocumented immigrants who were brought to the country as children to gain temporary legal status. Bannon, who is Catholic, accused the church of wanting a steady flow of illegal immigrants coming into the country to fill its church pews and make money.

“Unable to really to come to grips with the problems in the Church, they need illegal aliens, they need illegal aliens to fill the churches,” Bannon said in an interview with Charlie Rose that will air on “60 Minutes” on CBS on Sunday. “It’s obvious on the face of it.

” Bannon added: “They have an economic interest. They have an economic interest in unlimited immigration, unlimited illegal immigration.”

. . . “As much as I respect Cardinal [Timothy] Dolan and the bishops on doc­trine, this is not doctrine,” Bannon responded. “This is not doctrine at all. I totally respect the pope and I to­tal­ly respect the Catholic bishops and car­di­nals on doctrine. This is not about doctrine. This is about the sov­er­eign­ty of a nation. And in that regard, they’re just another guy with an opinion.”

DID POPE FRANCIS JUST COMPARE ABORTION TO TRUMP'S IMMIGRATION POLICY?

Pope Francis raised eyebrows in the United States on Sunday when he connected two lightning rods on the nation's political landscape—abortion and the White House's recent bid to rescind protections for undocumented early arrivals. "The President of the United States presents himself as pro-life and if he is a good pro-lifer, he understands that family is the cradle of life and its unity must be protected," the pope told the press after his return from a trip to Colombia.

The connection between the two was not immediately apparent, at least to the non-Catholic eye. At a glance, it appeared the pope was compounding one hotly debated question of civil liberties with another. But the pontiff is known for speaking in catechismal riddles that are ultimately designed to elucidate—for President Donald Trump and the greater American public—fraught ethical issues; to understand is forcibly to dig a little deeper.


Unbelievable, the Catholic church accepts countless billions in tax payers money from our government to help facilitate legal and illegal immigration including that of unaccompanied children, then turns around and accuses Trumps attempts to put an end to such as equivalent to supporting abortion. Is there no end to the evil manipulation perpetrated by this imposture representative of Jesus Christ, and the institution he leads?

CATHOLIC CHURCH LEADS EFFORT TO NATURALIZE 2.4 MILLION IMMIGRANTS

Approximately 2.4 million Legal Permanent Residents living in California will receive assistance from the Catholic Church on their path to citizenship.

Archbishop of Los Angeles, José H. Gómez and other Bishops of Southern California unveiled the initiative during a Catholic Immigration Summit at the Christ Cathedral on February 27th.

“Our struggle has never been about politics. It’s always been about people. People who are suffering and are exploited, people who are dying, ” Gómez said. “If we work this year to encourage naturalization and citizenship, that will make a real difference in the lives of hundreds of thousands of people.”

Attending the call of Pope Francisco during the Holy Year of Mercy Catholic, the Catholic Church in California has started the initiative to assist in the naturalization process, those who have not grasped the scope of benefits to become citizens.


When your Church receives 79 million dollars in one year of tax payers money to assist the illegal immigrants whom you yourself helped bring into the country, the issue becomes exactly about politics. Since when is taking countless millions of tax dollars from a nation to fulfill the agenda of a Church, not politics. It is the exact kind of politics our founding fathers wanted to prevent when they formed our Constitutional government for the people and by the people, which included a healthy separation of church and state for these exact reasons. Citizens being forced to support the unconstitutional and self destructive dictates of a religion they do not belong to and or agree with, is what the Protestant reformers and the fathers of this nation fought against. We are seeing nothing less than what Rome does whenever she gains the power and influence to do so.

Steve Bannon is right: the Catholic Church “needs” illegal immigrants

Many denominations are dependent on immigration for growth

A poor testimony for "Christianity" if it be true. Denominations dependent upon immigration over conversion for survival, are certainly not about the business of converting souls. Though the above link makes a comparison between the Catholic church and other denominations both needing immigrants for survival, there is no comparison concerning the actual numbers involved. Countless millions more Catholics than others and that is just from one country. The fact that the Catholic church is a political entity as well as a religious one, makes it all the more important for her to have the numbers she needs to accomplish her political ends.

This is not to mention the very different reasons for immigration over the history of our nation. Many of the first Christians migrating to this nation were doing so to escape religious persecution from nations whose government combined church and state unto said persecution. The Catholic church was certainly not the least of these culprits, and is herself the mother of all "Christian" persecuting powers involving a united church and state. To this day, she will not stay out of the realm of politics, but to the contrary is ever seeking to, and actually increasing her political clout and power on a global scale. Donald Trump has thrown somewhat of a monkey wrench into some of her plans. The full impact of which remains to be seen, or not.

Illegal Immigration Unites Democrats, Catholic Church

Catholic bishops shouldn’t talk about politics, left-wing pundits say, except on the subject of illegal immigration. On that subject even the most ardent supporters of the separation of church and state are happy to hear the bishops opine. Liberals are cheering the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops for calling on churchgoers to harbor illegal immigrants in their homes to keep them safe from the U.S. Border Patrol.

On Ash Wednesday, Cardinal Roger Mahoney of Los Angeles instructed priests and churchgoers to disobey enforcement provisions of a House of Representatives immigration bill. Washington, D.C., Cardinal Theodore McCarrick said the scriptures justified aiding illegal immigrants. McCarrick said, “[How] many of us have not violated some laws, whatever they might have been—either they’re traffic laws or immigration laws or tax laws, something like that.”

San Angelo Catholic Diocese Wades Into Illegal Immigration Controversy

SAN ANGELO, TX – Catholic bishops at the national and state of Texas level expressed support for allowing “Dreamers,” or the children of illegal immigrants, to legally immigrate to the U.S. The stand by the Catholic Church is controversial, especially in regions like west Texas where the 2016 presidential election saw support for President Donald Trump, who ran on a platform to curb illegal immigration, exceeded 70 percent of the vote.

Last Thursday, the Texas Catholic Bishops issued a statement denouncing the Trump administration’s decision to terminate the executive order that implemented the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA. That same day, the Diocese of San Angelo sent the statement to all Catholics in San Angelo via email in support of allowing Dreamers to immigrate here.

London Catholic churches see boost in illegal immigrants

LONDON – The size of the Catholic Church in the British capital is being boosted by waves of illegal immigrants, according to a new report.

Undocumented or irregular migrants now make up more than three-quarters of the congregations of at least three London parishes, said “The Ground of Justice: The Report of a Pastoral Research Inquiry Into the Needs of Migrants in London’s Catholic Community,” published Feb. 14.

Four Syracuse churches declare themselves 'sanctuaries' for immigrants

SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Four Syracuse churches have declared themselves "sanctuaries" for immigrants fleeing deportation, joining hundreds of other U.S. churches opposed to President Trump's hardline position on illegal immigration.

All Saints Roman Catholic Church, St. Lucy's Roman Catholic Church, University United Methodist Church and Plymouth Congregational Church have formed an interfaith coalition to support undocumented immigrants.

All Saints, at 1340 Lancaster Ave. on the city's East Side, is prepared to shelter any undocumented immigrant challenging the deportation process. It has a suite of rooms available in its parish annex next to the church.

The other three churches have agreed to provide material, interpersonal and spiritual support.

(All emphasis mine)

Uncovering the Emigration Policies of the Catholic Church in Mexico

The first mass wave of emigration from Mexico took place during the 1910s and 1920s as Mexicans fled political and economic turmoil at home for work in U.S. agriculture and railroads. By 1929, an estimated 738,500 people of Mexican birth lived in the United States. Many of them migrated seasonally.

Within Mexico, most elites opposed the mass migration of its people, the country's largest asset, to the United States.

The strongest sentiment against emigration during this period came from the Catholic Church, an influential voice in a country where more than 98 percent of the population identified as Catholic even as the Church continued to lose its long and bloody struggles with the government. The Church feared that migration caused the breakup of families, religious conversions, and the introduction of dangerous foreign ideas.

However, the Church's various attempts to prevent migration northward largely failed. By the 1960s, its migration policy shifted to preparing migrants for the journey, establishing closer ties with the Church in the United States, and becoming a voice for migrants' rights while encouraging both their U.S. integration and homeland ties.

With 88 percent of Mexicans older than age 4 being Catholic in 2000 according to INEGI, Mexico's official statistical agency, the Church continues to play an important role in the migration experience even as the number of evangelical Christians grows....................................... ..

In the eyes of the Church hierarchy, emigration entailed numerous perils. The first was returnees' foreign ideas and U.S. attachments. These ideas endangered the purity of Mexican culture and even Mexico's very existence as a sovereign state.

Despite pervasive discrimination against Mexicans in the United States, migrants came back to Mexico with impossibly high expectations of wages and working conditions that generated an agrarian radicalism the Church bitterly opposed. The parish priest of San Juan de los Lagos reported in 1920 that returnees were introducing anarchist ideologies learned in the United States......................................

The Catholic clergy argued that Catholic migrants were vulnerable because migrants identified Protestantism with the power and prestige of the United States. The United States was an inherently dangerous religious environment because of its "cosmopolitanism."

Another argument against emigration, which was not made publicly, was that material progress would weaken religious sentiment. A Guadalajara priest complained to Taylor in 1931 about workers returning from the North with newfound wealth. "When the Indian wears shoes, he does not go to mass. And when he wears pants, he does not believe in God," he said.................................

The Archbishop of Guadalajara told priests in 1951 to warn prospective migrants of the spiritual and material dangers facing them in the United States, "so they will not abandon their homes, families, work, and motherland for this adventure." He said the public should be warned that illegal immigrants went hungry waiting for false promises of contracts. Even the legally contracted "live in miserable pigsties, face high costs, are taken out by brute force to work on rainy days, and are given opportunities to spend what they earn on vices."

By 1960, the clergy recognized that simply telling workers to stay home was not working. In many Mexican communities, a trip to work in the United States had become a rite of passage for young men.

The Church's policy changed from simple dissuasion to a campaign to prepare braceros heading north for the moral dangers they would face. A new campaign included a "Manual for Braceros," special masses and charity in Mexican contracting centers, and a "Bracero Hour" radio broadcast about conditions in the United States. The trend continued towards a greater emphasis on managing emigration's effects rather than hindering departure.

When it became clear that the United States would not renew the Bracero program, the emigrant commission of the Conference of Mexican Bishops (CEM) met to plan the Church's response (CEM coordinates the Church's social and pastoral policy). The Church leadership understood that migration patterns were already beginning to change from circular migration — movement back and forth across the border — toward permanent settlement in the United States.

CEM decided in the 1960s to promote a Pastoral Tour of Mexico to bring U.S. priests south for three to six months; the tour included visits to historic migrant-sending regions................................

Following meetings between U.S. and Mexican bishops, the Missionaries of St. Charles (the Scalabrinians — see sidebar) opened a seminary in Guadalajara in 1980 to attend to migrants in transit, prepare priests for ministering to the growing Latino population in the United States, and convince the Mexican Church to develop a more consistent policy toward emigrants.

The desire to cooperate across borders has also come from the Vatican, particularly following the Second Vatican Council in 1962. Both the Mexican and U.S. branches have followed the Vatican in enthusiastically taking up the global rights revolution demanding an expanding list of protections and privileges based on universal rights of personhood.

Priests on Mexico's northern border were most intensely involved in Church migration policy during the 1970s and 1980s. They publicly denounced abuses of unauthorized migrants and beginning in 1987 established a chain of shelters to minister to migrants in border cities.

In the heyday of massive illegal migration from Tijuana to San Diego in the late 1980s, Scalabrinian priests held daily outdoor masses in the shadow of the border fence to bless the scores of migrants waiting for nightfall to cross. The shelters now mostly serve deportees...................................

A statue of Jesus overlooks Tijuana from a hillside above the city. Church shelters in Tijuana today mainly serve Mexican citizens deported from the United States.

The editorial board of Migrantes, the Scalabrinian seminary's weekly, in the 1980s rejected the consensus that emigration was an escape valve for a Mexican economy that could not provide enough jobs for its workers. The magazine portrayed temporary migration, permanent settlement abroad, and repatriation as detrimental to Mexico.

Encouraging Homeland Ties, Remittances, and Integration

In recent years, the Catholic Church on both sides of the border has made more efforts to deepen migrants' social ties to both their places of origin and settlement.

The Church promotes cross-border ties and hometown solidarity more generally through its role in U.S.-based hometown associations (HTAs), organizations that allow immigrants from the same city or region to maintain ties with and materially support their places of origin. As many HTAs make renovating the church or sponsoring a charity back home their first project, a priest in the parish of origin often acts as a coordinator or trusted conduit for the donations.

The Church hierarchy frowns on fundraising outside of formal channels, but it remains common among priests at the local level in areas with high levels of emigration.

Migrants are intensely devoted to local patron saints, providing another opportunity for the Church to foster ties. With religious fiestas structuring the calendar of temporary returns to Mexico (mainly December and January), the Church hierarchy holds activities during fiestas that cater to migrants and welcome them home. The Mexican government estimated in 2008 that more than a million migrants return for the holidays every year.

And when Mexican parish priests visit their U.S. satellite communities with an image of the patron saint — the latter a practice the binational Church hierarchy encourages — they bring together Mexicans who might not otherwise see each other. During these visits, migrants usually organize a mass or party in someone's backyard or a public park, where the visiting priest may even baptize a baby or celebrate a first communion.

Since berating settled migrants for betraying the motherland might prompt them to leave the Church altogether, the nationalism the Mexican Church has espoused since the Bracero program is a soft, cultural nationalism based on positive affirmations of being Mexican and devotees of the Virgin of Guadalupe.

In the United States, the Church has carried out a pluralistic cultural mission among Mexicans in the United States since the 1960s. It is learning to adapt to an influx of newcomers, even in places like Georgia that historically have not been Mexican destinations. Disdain for Mexicans or immigrants is no longer culturally acceptable or strategically prudent given that Latinos constitute a rapidly growing part of the Church's membership.

The Church now promotes immigrants' native language by holding masses in Spanish and recruiting Spanish-speaking priests, but it also encourages immigrants to become U.S. citizens and learn English. Americanizing and maintaining mexicanidad are viewed as complementary.

Still, the Mexican Church has a "national" face even as cooperation with U.S. clergy strengthens. Particularly in migrant-sending regions, many clergy continue to be concerned about migrants introducing cultural ideas from the United States........................................

The Church's decision to help those who decide to migrate has arguably eased the path for travelers who cannot rely on a social network of experienced migrants from their hometown or family. Along with travel agents, human smugglers, immigration lawyers, and labor brokers, Catholic organizations offering refuge along the border are important nongovernmental actors that enable international migration.

Although the Church and the government both promote remittances, their rationales differ. The Church has always emphasized migrants' responsibility to provide for families left behind; the government, with particular intensity since the 1990s, has emphasized investments rather than consumption................................

Most importantly, the Catholic Church has become one of the major interest groups in the United States and around the world promoting a more accommodating stance toward immigration even when such positions have been politically unpopular......................................

Fiestas are advantageous from the state's point of view because they promote permanent emigration with continued homeland ties and tourism. The government considers this combination the best recipe for attracting remittances and forming a Mexican lobby to press its trade and immigration policy preferences in the United States.

The Same Toolkit for Church and State

While the Church and the government do not always share the same goals — the Church still worries about migration's moral effects and the government wants to secure migrants' political support — they use similar techniques to govern a mobile population. The reason for these techniques is simple: Church and state exercise their power through knowledge about the whole population as well as its individual members.

Both organizations survey migrants to determine their demographic characteristics, legal status, migration routes, U.S. destinations, and occupations. Each tries to document the amounts of collective remittances; how they are spent; and the names, addresses, and telephone numbers of the remitters.

Just as the Mexican state has at times issued identification documents that also attest to the bearer's moral character, on a smaller scale, priests in Mexico have issued ecclesiastical identification documents and letters of introduction to destination parishes.

At the local level, the Church often has better records than the state, given that local government bureaucracy is shot through with clientelism, lack of continuity between administrations, and corruption.


Conclusion: Looking Forward

The Catholic Church continues to be one of the major voices for comprehensive immigration reform in the United States. The hierarchy and clergy are leading their flock on these issues, as there is scattered evidence that U.S. Catholics' attitudes toward immigration are about as restrictive as those of non-Catholics.

Although immigration faded as an issue in the 2008 presidential campaign once the Republican primaries concluded, U.S. bishops have tried to put a more accommodating policy approach back on the political agenda through conferences, tours, and the use of the homily as a bully pulpit. The Church is increasingly working with likeminded groups from other religious organizations.

A path to legalization, family reunification, humane border control and interior enforcement policies, and development in Mexico remain the pillars of the Church's policy on both sides of the border.

Wake up America! What is happening is a systematic invasion of our country by and through a foreign nation via the political globalist institution, which is the Roman Catholic Church. They are systematically draining the wealth of our nation and moving it to their own, while placing countless millions if not billions of dollars of burden upon American tax payers every year, while establishing their own religion, culture, and nationality within our own nation even as the Church of Rome seeks to destroy our own national sovereignty, Constitutional government for the people and by the people, and establish a socialistic from of government of its own making in its place. The Counter-Reformation marches forward in the dilution and eventual dissipation of true Protestant principles of government and church, and the separation of the two into their own rightful and authoritative spheres. Which is the government of both by the will of the people they govern.

The following quotes are from the link above.

Quote
Foreign-born Catholics Keep Membership Steady

Catholics coming from other parts of the world have kept the church on stable footing. In 1975, the first year the data were recorded, foreign-born members, predominantly from Mexico and other Latin American countries, made up about 8% of the church. Today that number is almost 28%.



Mapping Catholicism

Catholicism is the most popular religion in the West, Midwest and Northeast.

The major city with the highest precentage of Catholics is Boston. As the Irish settled into the city in the early 17th century, they brought with them their Roman Catholic beliefs.

Roughly half the people living in Southern Louisiana are catholic, largely due to the region’s French and Spanish roots. The term “parish,” or what Louisiana calls its counties, comes from a religious term for a church community.

Heavy concentration of Catholics in central California, southern Texas and other parts of the Southwest is largely attributable to the predominantly Catholic Hispanic population. This is also where most of the change within the church is occurring. Heavily Hispanic counties like Jeff Davis County in Texas have seen a drop in Catholicism as younger, second-generation Hispanics leave the church. However, there has been a rise in counties that have seen new Hispanic growth, like Mono County in California.

One area that is not heavily Catholic is the Southeastern United States. The area is dominated by Protestants with Evangelicals making up 35% of the population.



Younger Catholics Are Primarily Hispanic

According to the Public Religion Research Institute, the ratio of white Catholics to Hispanic Catholics is now less than two to one. That is down from 10 to one in the early 1990s. At 49%, Hispanics are a majority of all young American Catholics (ages 18–29), more than triple the percentage of Catholic seniors.

Illegal-Immigrant Caravans, Churches, and Criminal Sanctuaries

…………………………

Pueblo Sin Fronteras, the group in charge of the annual “migrant caravan,” launched its effort during Holy Week by invoking the Stations of the Cross with biblical costumery and prop crosses. When they’re not serving as human traffickers masquerading as human-rights activists, these travel agents for amnesty busy themselves constructing shelters along their illicit pathways that span the globe. Catholic groups have sponsored and subsidized such nation-sabotaging campaigns for decades……………..

Open-borders tour guides in Mexico illegally shepherding 1,500 Central Americans to the United States border declared victory this week. Mexican officials reportedly are offering humanitarian visas to avert a showdown. But the parade of immigration lawlessness marches on — with reckless aiding and abetting by churches across the U.S.

The Vatican itself donated at least $20,000 in 2009 to erect a shelter for Central American illegal aliens sneaking through Ixtepec, Mexico, where they hopped on freight trains into our country. Another papal society, Catholic Extension, has poured more than $12 million dollars into ministries along our southern border over the past five years “to ensure that those who are on a journey are protected by the Church and that we advocate on their behalf,” according to the Catholic News Agency……………….

In Washington State, the Jesuit-affiliated St. Joseph Catholic Church of Seattle blasted President Trump’s “destructive and brutal” immigration enforcement and declared “our unwavering solidarity with our brothers and sisters in the immigrant community.” All deportations violate “Catholic Social Teaching” and “the common good,” the parish asserted……………

In Las Vegas, the incoming Catholic Bishop George Leo Thomas announced that illegal immigration and gun control will top his spiritual agenda. Echoing the left-wing U.S. Conference on Catholic Bishops, Thomas pledged to support and advocate for the so-called illegal-alien Dreamers and welcome them into the church.

The immigrant caravan is a wave of hope for America

When the caravan of migrants from Honduras reaches the US-Mexico border, it will test the truth of our American values and the credibility of our Catholic social justice teachings. The caravan started on October 13 in the crime ridden Honduran city of San Pedro Sula, and later migrants from El Salvador, Nicaragua, and Guatemala joined them. Approximately 2,300 of them are children. Now there are three caravans. This third caravan is of mothers in search of their children who went missing in the process of migrating to the United States…………………………………

From a Catholic perspective, this caravan is a modern-day migrant human rights movement. It is a wave of hope for our neighbors in hopeless situations. These migrants are challenging our U.S. Catholic communities to get out of our comfort and ideological zones, to ask profound questions about the impact of our lifestyles in relation to their sufferings. Answers come from our solidarity and option with and for the poorest and most vulnerable. These sisters and brothers of ours are asking us to see the world through their struggles, their fears and their dreams……………………………………..

These caravan journeys are almost mystical in their total trust in the presence of an accompanying God. These prophetic journeys call us to an active hope, to transform our love into political action for the common good of all, to seek just solutions to complex, transnational human struggles. We can march to legislative offices to promote comprehensive immigration reform. We can support efforts at developing just and functional US-Central American economic programs that begin by addressing the needs of the poor, of farmers, of women and of children.

Caravan heads to Mexico City; Guadalupe basilica opens for migrants

CORDOBA, Mexico - The caravan of migrants making its way through Mexico has started arriving in Mexico City, where the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe, the world’s most-visited Marian shrine, has opened its shelter for pilgrims to weary Central American migrants.

At least 1,000 migrants departed Nov. 5 from Cordoba, 190 miles southeast of Mexico City, hoping to make a final push to the national capital. They were joined by another group departing from Puebla - closer to Mexico City - where they had received assistance and slept in parishes………………….

“We feel protected. There are human rights people, nuns, the Catholic Church, the Red Cross,” said Edwin Paz, 41, a mechanic who left Honduras with his wife - two-and-a-half months pregnant - and teenage son………………………..

Parishes across southern Mexico have fed the migrants and collected clothes and shoes for them. Some Mexicans of humble means have offered what they can: plates of beans, rice and tortillas; plastic bags filled with water and gently used clothing.

A group of religious belonging to The Missionaries of the Risen Christ - which includes nurses, physicians and psychologists, working with support from Caritas Mexico - has set up a tent at each stop, where they tend to medical issues such as wounded feet, twists and sprains, and children with coughs, colds and fevers.

The following quoted article mat be viewed at the link above. All emphasis in the quote is mine.

George Soros and Pope Francis: An Unholy Alliance

The election of a liberal Jesuit to the papacy thrilled Democrats in the United States, whose unholy alliance with the Catholic left goes back many decades. Barack Obama, one of the pope’s most prominent supporters, has long been a beneficiary of that alliance. The faculty at Jesuit Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., ranked as one of the top donors to his campaign.

In a grim irony, Obama, whose presidency substantially eroded religious freedom in America, rose to power not in spite of the Catholic Church but because of it. The archdiocese of Chicago helped bankroll his radicalism in the 1980s. As he recounts in his memoirs, he began his work as a community organizer in the rectory rooms of Holy Rosary parish on Chicago’s South Side. The Alinskyite organization for which he worked — the Developing Communities Project — received tens of thousands of dollars from the Catholic Campaign for Human Development.

Obama was close to the late Chicago Cardinal Joseph Bernardin. A proponent of the “Seamless Garment” movement within the Catholic Church in the 1980s, a movement that downplayed abortion and emphasized political liberalism, Bernardin was drawn to the socialism and relativism of the liberal elite. He was so “gay-friendly” that he requested that the “Windy City Gay Chorus” perform at his funeral. He embodied Obama’s conception of a “good” bishop and one can see in his admixture of left-wing politics and relativistic nonjudgmental theology a foreshadowing of the rise of Pope Francis.

Cardinal Bernardin put pressure on his priests to work with Obama and even paid for Obama’s plane fare out to a 1980 training session in Los Angeles organized by Saul Alinsky’s Industrial Areas Foundation. The conference was held at a Catholic college in Southern California, Mount St. Mary’s, which has long been associated with Alinsky’s group.

This alliance between the Catholic left and the Democratic left explains the honorary degree Obama received from Notre Dame in 2009, even as he plotted to persecute the Church under Obamacare’s contraceptive and abortifacient mandate. Notre Dame’s former president, Fr. Theodore Hesburgh, who supported honoring Obama, had been close to Monsignor John Egan, the socialist who started the Catholic Campaign for Human Development and sat on Saul Alinsky’s Industrial Areas Foundation board.

The unholy alliance also explains how the Democratic Party, despite its support for abortion and gay marriage, won a majority of the Catholic vote in Obama’s two presidential elections. At the 2012 Democratic convention in Charlotte, nuns such as Sister Simone Campbell shared the stage with abortion activists from Planned Parenthood. A liberal dean of a Catholic university, Sister Marguerite Kloos, even got caught in an act of voter fraud that year, forging the signature of a deceased nun on a ballot. As Thomas Pauken writes in The Thirty Years War, “the radicalization of elements of the Catholic clergy turned out to be one of Saul Alinsky’s most significant accomplishments.”

The election of Pope Francis was seen by Alinskyite activists as a dream come true. “I think that Pope Francis is quite an inspiring figure,” Al Gore said at UC Berkeley in early 2015. The former vice president turned radical environmental activist called Pope Francis a “phenomenon” and laughed at his liberalism: “Is the pope Catholic?” Gore said that he is so “inspiring to me” that “I could become a Catholic.”

Leftists frequently turn up at the Vatican, often invited by one of Pope Francis’s closest advisers, the socialist Honduran Cardinal Oscar Rodriguez Maradiaga. Before the pope’s visit to the U.S., a group of left-wing activists and officials from unions and organizations such as the SEIU and PICO (an Alinskyite group founded by the liberal Jesuit Father John Baumann) descended on the Vatican to confer with curial officials about the trip. Around the same time, over 90 members of the U.S. Congress sent Pope Francis a letter, urging him to focus upon politically liberal themes. The leader of this group was Rosa DeLauro, a Catholic who supports abortion rights.

In 2016, it was revealed through disclosures by WikiLeaks that the billionaire socialist George Soros bankrolled much of this lobbying. He spent hundreds of thousands of dollars in an attempt to shape the pope’s visit to the U.S. According to the leaked documents, Soros’s Open Society Foundation sought to create a “critical mass” of American bishops and lay Catholics supportive of the pope’s priorities. The documents made special mention of Maradiaga, a champion of PICO, as a useful ally for ensuring that the pope’s speeches in the U.S. pushed socialism

The hacked e-mails exposed the depth of the plotting:

Pope Francis’ first visit to the United States in September will include a historic address to Congress, a speech at the United Nations, and a visit to Philadelphia for the “World Meeting of Families.” In order to seize this moment, we (Open Society) will support PICO’s organizing activities to engage the Pope on economic and racial justice issues, including using the influence of Cardinal Rodriguez, the Pope’s senior advisor, and sending a delegation to visit the Vatican in the spring or summer to allow him to hear directly from low-income Catholics in America.

In the e-mails, the Soros operatives make it explicitly clear that they view Pope Francis as a propagandist for their causes:

At the end of the day, our visit affirmed an overall strategy: Pope Francis, as a leader of global stature, will challenge the “idolatry of the marketplace” in the U.S. and offer a clarion call to change the policies that promote exclusion and indifference to those most marginalized. We believe that this generational moment can launch extraordinary organizing that promotes moral choices and helps establish a moral compass. We believe that the papal visit, and the work we are collectively doing around it, can help many in our country move beyond the stale ideological conflicts that dominate our policy debates and embrace new opportunities to advance the common good.

After the meeting, they rejoiced at the success of the meeting, informing John Podesta, the chairman of Hillary Clinton’s campaign:

“Our visits were dialogues. We conveyed our view that the Pope is a World leader of historical significance; that his message of exclusion, alarm over rising inequality and concern about globalized indifference is important for the U.S. to hear and see animated during his visit; and that we intend to amplify his remarks so that we have a more profound moral dialogue about policy choices through the election cycle of 2016. In our meetings with relevant officials, we strongly recommended that the Pope emphasize — in words and deeds — the need to confront racism and racial hierarchy in the US…”

Conversations that were originally scheduled for thirty minutes stretched into two-hour dialogues. As in our breakfast conversation with Cardinal Rodríguez, senior Vatican officials shared profound insights demonstrating an awareness of the moral, economic and political climate in America. We were encouraged to believe that the Pope will confront race through a moral frame.

Further disclosures from WikiLeaks confirmed the plotting of Democratic officials to infiltrate the Catholic Church in order to “foment revolution” beneficial to their radical causes. In 2012, in the midst of Catholic backlash over Obama’s contraceptive mandate, John Podesta received a note from Sandy Newman, president of Voices for Progress.

“There needs to be a Catholic Spring, in which Catholics themselves demand the end of a middle ages dictatorship and the beginning of a little democracy and respect for gender equality in the Catholic church,” Newman wrote to Podesta. “I don’t qualify to be involved and I have not thought at all about how one would ‘plant the seeds of revolution,’ or who would plant them.” Podesta replied that the Democrats had set up Catholic front groups to plant those seeds: “We created Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good to organize for a moment like this. But I think it lacks the leadership to do so now. Likewise Catholics United. Like most Spring moments, I think this one will have to be bottom up.” Podesta was wrong. It would come from the top down, as the following year Francis rose to the papacy and began politicizing the Church in the exact manner that the progressives had envisioned. Indeed, Podesta would later encourage Hillary Clinton to enlist the pope’s leftism in her campaign. In one hacked e-mail, he advised that she send out a tweet to “thank him for pointing out that the people at the bottom will get clobbered the most by climate change.”

Podesta and his aides also discussed how they could exploit Pope Francis’s support for Obama’s Iran deal. Podesta was sent a report in which Christopher Hale of Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good proposes getting bishops and cardinals to lean on senators temporizing about the deal.

In another e-mail, which underscores how the media and the Democrats teamed up to enlist Pope Francis in their politics, a liberal columnist, Brent Budowsky, counsels Podesta: “John, HRC should get ahead of the progressive curve before the pope’s trip to the U.S. in September, which will be big deal for a week, saturation coverage, heavy progressive populist, impact after he leaves affecting the trajectory of the campaign. Here’s my take, written more in news analysis style……Brent” In the attached column, Budowsky writes, “The visit of such a popular pope will almost certainly give a lift in principle to Democrats and liberals who cheer Francis and rededicate themselves to the values and visions he stands for.”

Pope Francis has been influenced by The Pedagogy of the Oppressed, a book that sought to spread Marxism among the peasants of Latin America. The Alinskyite left in America regards that book as a classic. The author of the book is the late Paulo Freire and Pope Francis has made a point of visiting with Freire’s widow. The meeting was set up by Cardinal Hummes, the Brazilian whom Francis credits with inspiring him to name himself after St. Francis. Pope Francis “considered the meeting with me because of the writings of Paulo, because of the importance of Paulo for the education of oppressed people, poor people, black people, for women, for minorities,” Ana Freire said.

Though this article is extremely informative, it confuses just exactly who is influencing who. A close examination of papal Encyclicals over the last 50 to 60 years will reveal that it is not necessary for the evil democrat lefties to win the Vatican over to its side. To the contrary, they contributed heavily to the creation of our new lefty progressive socialist democratic party.

Oh yes, almost forgot, the main reason for this post. Soro's organizations have been identified as one of the main funders and organizers of the caravans of illegals to our country. These endeavors are not an attempt to influence Vatican teaching and policy, but rather the facilitation of them.

https://onepeterfive.com/pope-francis-praises-soros-funded-organization-encourages-resistance/

The following quotes are from the link provided above.

Quote
In reiterating some themes discussed before, Pope Francis adds:

Quote
Here are the roots of the authentic humanity that resists the dehumanization that wears the livery of indifference, hypocrisy, or intolerance. I know that you have committed yourselves to fight for social justice, to defend our Sister Mother Earth [sic] and to stand alongside migrants. I want to reaffirm your choice and share two reflections in this regard.

The pope adds the importance of protecting nature and his plea for religious tolerance, namely that “no people is criminal and no religion is terrorist. Christian terrorism does not exist, Jewish terrorism does not exist, and Muslim terrorism does not exist. They do not exist.” [my emphasis]

Does it surprise us that this Vatican meeting in California “criticizes Trump orders“? As the Miami Herald reports:

Quote
Speakers at a Vatican-sponsored conference in Northern California — including an archbishop — denounced President Donald Trump’s orders on immigration and travel and vowed to fight them at a meeting Friday. Los Angeles Archbishop José Gomez said President Barack Obama deported a high number of people, but the harsh tone and cruelty coming out of the new administration was prompting mass fear and panic. [my emphasis]

In this context, this conference now called the Catholic Church to investigate its own “racism”:

Quote
The gathering of more than 600 clergy and social justice activists also included a session on racism Friday, where speakers encouraged religious people and institutions, including the Roman Catholic Church, to confront their own racism. [my emphasis]

In November of 2016, the Italian historian Professor Roberto de Mattei had informed us that, after Hillary Clinton’s loss of the election, Pope Francis might very well now become the world leader of the Left. De Mattei then wrote:

Quote
On his return flight from Mexico on February 18th of this year [2016], in commenting Trump’s plan to build a wall between the United States and Mexico in order to slow down the migratory surge the Pope had said that “a person who thinks only of building walls and not bridges, is not a Christian.” […] Yet, no matter how strong the reservations towards Trump can be, for a Catholic it would be difficult to imagine a position of equidistance between him and Hillary Clinton, who had officially inserted a massive implementation of abortion and the LGBT agenda into her programme. [That is,] Unless self-defence against the migratory invasion is considered a graver sin than the legalization of abortion and so-called homosexual marriage.

De Mattei is to be commended for his far-sightedness. He not only predicted Pope Francis’ role as the leader of the Left world-wide, he also pointed to the increasing danger of incited and practiced violence in this regard:

Quote
For his part, after Clinton’s defeat, Francesco now remains the only point of reference for the international left, [now] lacking a leader. On November 5th at the conclusion of the Third World Meeting of the so-called “Popular Movements” in the Vatican, in the presence of revolutionary agitators from the five continents, Pope Francis turned to them saying: “I make your cry mine”. But the cry of protest, that is raised by the movements gathered in Paul VI’s audience hall, is, unfortunately, characterized by ideological fanaticism and incitement to violence. [my emphasis]

Not two weeks ago, major newspapers in this country came out with stories as to how Donald Trump’s closest advisor, Steve Bannon, now tries to influence the Vatican, with the help of Cardinal Raymond Burke. OnePeterFive’s author Christian Browne responded some of these attacks on Cardinal Burke with charitable indignation. However, if we are concerned about Trump’s advisor trying to influence Vatican policies, we might be just as concerned about Pope Francis trying directly to influence U.S. politics and supporting groups that are funded by George Soros, supporter of Hillary Clinton and Planned Parenthood. Worth noting in this context is the request made by The Remnant, on 20 January 2017, that the Trump administration should investigate “what appears to be a collusion between a hostile [Obama] United States government and a pope who seems to hold as much ill will towards followers of perennial Catholic teachings as he seems to hold toward” Trump himself.[/size]

Soros, the Vatican, the Council and Fatima

Last year, at the Fatima Conference in Chicago, attorney Elizabeth Yore gave a riveting presentation entitled, An Unholy Alliance: the UN, Soros, and the Francis Papacy.

Though the title of her presentation tells the tale, if you’ve not yet watched the video (available below), I would encourage you to do so as it will be an hour well spent.

Throughout her presentation, Mrs. Yore introduces viewers to an unsavory cast of characters that presently enjoy a cozy relationship with the Pontifical Academy of Sciences; describing how each one is actively involved in promoting an evil social agenda.

Most readers recognize the name that appears in the title to her talk, George Soros; the billionaire financier of numerous leftwing political and social groups that are committed to creating global chaos and disorder in furtherance of their cause.

As Mrs. Yore makes known in the presentation, Soros’ influence in Bergoglian Rome is most concretely exercised via his close collaborators, the most noteworthy of which are:.......................

http://theconservativecartel.com/facts-on-cara-and-pueblo-sin-fronteras/

In Spring 2018, hundreds of migrants from Central America approached the U.S.-Mexico border seeking asylum in the United States and threatening to enter illegally if their request was denied. Pueblo Sin Fronteras organized the caravan in conjunction with the CARA Family Detention Pro Bono Project.[24][25] The CARA coalition consists of the Catholic Legal Immigration Network, the American Immigration Council, the Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services, and the American Immigration Lawyers Association, all groups advocating for legal status for illegal immigrants and expanded immigration overall.[26]  These organizations have been funded by a number of major left-of-center grantmaking foundations, including the Open Society Foundations, MacArthur Foundation, Ford Foundation, and Carnegie Corporation of New York. [27] The caravan eventually halted in Mexico City on April 4 instead of reaching the United States border.[28]..................................

SOROS FUNDING CATHOLIC OPEN BORDERS PUSH

Millions funnelled to pro-amnesty Catholic Legal Immigration Network

WASHINGTON (ChurchMilitant.com) - A week after a "caravan" of more than a thousand would-be immigrants made its way from Central America into Mexico, it's emerging that a Catholic group is colluding with atheist billionaire George Soros to facilitate their northward push.  
 
The caravan is organized by open-borders group Pueblo sin Fronteras (PSF). A self-described "collective of friends who decided to be in permanent solidarity with displaced peoples," PSF lays out its mission on its website: "We accompany migrants and refugees in their journey of hope and together demand our human rights.”……………………………….

Describing CARA as "an umbrella group that focuses on providing services to illegal immigrants," Beck pointed out that one of its key members is the Catholic Legal Immigration Network, Inc. (CLINIC), a prominent player "in the open borders lobby fighting for the rights and amnesty for illegal immigrants.”

Beck revealed that for almost a decade, CLINIC has been showered each year with "giant checks from George Soros.”

"Now, George Soros is a known atheist. He's supporting ... this Catholic group. Why would an atheist do that?" he asked. "Well, because he believes in what they're doing. What is it that they're doing? Making sure that illegals can come across our border.”

"The trail goes back years," Beck continued. "In 2009, Soros gave the Catholic Legal Immigration Network over half a million dollars. But as the immigration debate heated up, so did the checks. Soros in 2015 increased his funding to $970,000." …………….

That any Catholic group would ally itself with Soros is troubling to faithful Catholics but not necessarily surprising.

In a 60 Minutes interview last September, former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon, a Catholic, hammered U.S. bishops for pressing America's political leaders to ignore the country's immigration laws. 

Because they're unwilling to address root problems in the Church, Bannon said, the bishops "need illegal aliens to fill the churches."
"It's obvious on the face of it," Bannon said. "They have an economic interest in unlimited immigration, unlimited illegal immigration.”

"I totally respect the pope, and I totally respect the Catholic bishops and cardinals on doctrine," he added. "This is not about doctrine. This is about the sovereignty of a nation.”

How Jesuits and George Soros Are Instigating the American Border Crisis

BY NEWS DIVISION · PUBLISHED NOVEMBER 27, 2018 · UPDATED NOVEMBER 27, 2018

Jesuit priests, since the early 1600s, have been seeking to undermine English common-law and Protestantism in the New World. Sent into the world to undermine Protestant nations in the name of Catholicism, the Jesuit order became suppressed in various nations like Portugal, France, Malta, Spain, Austria and Hungary in 1763 as these nations determined that they were undermining the national sovereignty of those body-politics. The unbelievable wealth of the Roman Church, funneled to the Jesuits – or Society of Jesus – provided strong financial support for their mission of sabotaging any nation-state not completely beholden to the Vatican. Russia, Prussia and the United States did not expel the Jesuits, even though their populaces largely lobbied their governments to do so. Today, the Jesuits in the New World continue to undermine the nation-states not under Romanist control.

New evidence has been revealed that demonstrates the pivotal role that the Jesuit order is playing in the current American border crisis.

According to their own website, Jesuits.org, the Catholic order is helping to assist illegal aliens entering the United States criminally. Their sub-site is entitled, Faith on the Border: Jesuits and Partners Come to the Aid of Deported Migrants, reports their efforts to undermine American immigration law. That website, by the way, is worth your perusal if you have time and are interested in researching the matter for yourself.

While you may be unaware of the Jesuit involvement, you’ve probably heard about People Without Borders, the group that is funding and providing the logistics for the illegal invasion of America. That group’s role in the migrant caravan has been reported by CBS News, as well as most other mainstream news sites. Known more frequently by their name in Spanish, Pueblo Sin Fronteras, even liberal news outlets acknowledge that the organization is largely behind the movement of thousands of Central Americans to the American border. According to the National Legal and Policy Center, Pueblo Sin Fronteras is based in Chicago.

According to the policy center:

Under the seemingly benign purpose of providing social services for the needy, notes Ludwig, Pueblo Sin Fronteras, a project of a Chicago-based 501(c)(4) nonprofit group, La Familia Latina Unida, seeks to elicit public sympathy for political gain at the expense of American self-governance.

There are explicit and documented ties between La Familia Latina Unida (the parent organization that owns and operates Pueblo Sin Fronteras, or People Without Borders) and George Soros’ National Immigration Forum. Again from the National Legal and Policy Center:

La Familia Latina Unida, inconveniently, had its IRS 501(c)(4) nonprofit status revoked in May 2017 after failing to file the required Form 990 for three consecutive years. That said, it continues to operate in conjunction with Pueblo Sin Fronteras and another Chicago outfit known as Centro Sin Fronteras Community Services Network, a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit headquartered at Lincoln United Methodist Church, located at 2009 W. 22nd Place. Form 990 tax returns for the period 2013-17 indicate that Centro Sin Fronteras received a combined $576,610 in public support for providing a wide range of Hispanic immigrant-related social services, including health care screening, legal referrals and financial counseling. The center received two grants in 2017, one for $4,000 from the American Heart Association for outreach to the Latino community on the effects of consuming soda and other high-sugar foods and the other for $7,646 from the Chicago-based Resurrection Project to conduct workshops on the immigration and citizenship process. Predating the most recent five-year period, the center received far larger grants from Left-leaning philanthropies such as the National Immigration Forum and the Public Welfare Foundation.

Using evangelicals to do their dirty work, that center is run by pastors belonging to the Lincoln United Methodist Church. Keep in mind that the aforementioned National Immigration Forum, funding People Without Borders, also funds Russell Moore’s Evangelical Immigration Table.

The Chicago operation mentioned above is a part of the CARA Family Detention Pro Bono Project. That organization includes two legal groups. The first is the Catholic Legal Immigration Network and the second is the Soros’ American Immigration Council – the same organization that provides funding and support for Russell Moore’s Evangelical Immigration Table (as mentioned above).

Although the role of George Soros with the Open Societies Foundations, the National Immigration Forum, the American Immigration Council and the Evangelical Immigration Table (all of which are virtually the same organization under different names) has been thoroughly examined on this news site, there has yet to be a careful examination of the Catholic Legal Immigration Network.

The Catholic Legal Immigration Network (the name is wildly dishonest) is a Jesuit organization. This is documented on their own website entitled Ignatian Solidarity Network (so-named after the founder of the Jesuit order, Ignatius of Loyola). The president of the Catholic Legal Immigration Network is Jesuit priest, Joe S. Vasquez. Vasquez is an American prelate of the Roman Catholic Church and was previously the auxillary bishop for the Archdiocese of Galveston and Houston.

It is expected for Pope Francis – a Jesuit himself – to continue to show strong contention against President Trump and Americans desirous to maintain our sovereign borders. Democrats know that they have an ally in the Jesuit Pope. Nancy Pelosi, speaking on immigration in February of this year, said, “Maybe I should bring my rosary blessed by…Pope Francis…’ 

The goal of the Jesuits has always been the same, and that is to undermine Protestant nation-states that don’t submit to the political power of the Papacy. The goal of George Soros is similar, although less religious. He desires a globalist government and the eradication of every nation-state. The two forces – Jesuits and Soros – are working together with evangelicals like Russell Moore and by extension, the Southern Baptist Convention, who have no idea to what they’re actually contributing.
