All the Right Friends and No Enemies to the Right

I don't know how it happened.

But it's nice to know I'm on all the right mailing lists.

I sincerely hope your passion for the border fence stems from your reading of the Gospels than it does your patriotism.

Dear Radical Mom,
It is fine for you to come here and attack me. I can handle it. Bring it on.

But be honest. You are upset b/c you were promoting an impure calendar on your blog that does nothing more than sanction and encourage lust and I corrected you.

As a matter of fact it is precisely my reading of the Gospel, in context and with understanding that backs up my position on illegal aliens:

Romans 13:1-2

Let any soul be subject to higher powers [civil authority]: for there is no power but from God: and those that are, are ordained of God. Therefore he that resisteth the power [breaks the law] resisteth the ordinance of God. And they that resist, purchase themselves damnation.

It really is a simple concept but I realize it may be a foreign to your "faith tradition". Especially if you have been influenced by modernist and liberation theology.

I wish you all the best and hope that you feel free to visit and comment anytime. I always welcome a chance to clarify what I have written and I am indebted to you for providing me that opportunity.

Hmmm. I am not at all offended by your comments about my "lustful" calendar. You had a good point. I meant it with as much as MommaSteph did with tongue in cheek.

I am a Catholic who believes and accepts the Catholic Church's social teachings wholeheartedly. I assumed you, too, were a Catholic, which may or may not be the case. But to call the Church's teaching on this "modernist and liberating" is strange. The Church's social teachings are biblically based as well as thousands of years in the making.

Frankly, if it is between a wealthy person and a poor person, guess who is given a "preferential option?" We are wealthy and will judged accordingly.

If you are a Catholic I would encourage you to do the same, too. EWTN has a wonderful collection of JPIIs speeches on this very topic. I would encourage you to read up. Maybe you have and you choose to disagree with the Church.

Dear Radical Mom,

You appealed to the Gospels to support you on illegal immigration. Apparently the Gospels do not say what you "thought" they said. Please do not jump to EWTN and John Paul II. Because I assure you that the Holy Father taught nothing infallibly that is not supported by the Gospels.

I ask you to remain on topic and show me where the Gospels or New Testament advocate breaking the law.

Similarly I would be interested in any Catholic, de fide source that states it is okay for the poor to break the law but not the wealthy.

I eagerly await your response.

Supporting illegal immigration to the United States goes against Catholic teaching.

We need to support social justice in Mexico for Mexicans, not butress their socialist, Masonic, bigamist Presidente Fox by letting him expel his poor.

Thomas Shawn said...

Also, committing illegal immigration involves no small amount of lying and theft, advocacy for this crime is curious indeed. Illegal illigrants directly undermine those who make minimum wage and who are unorganized.

Go over to any liberal blog and the talk will be about "Who will do the landscaping?"

Cesar Chavez, the god-father of unionized farm labor was violently opposed to illegal immigration.

Does this advocacy for illegal immigration have more to do with propping up socialist, masonic bigamists like Vincent Fox? I think so.

Radical (left wing) catholic mom writes on blog: The Church has a preferential option of the poor and the unborn, illegal immigrant, blastocyst, disabled, and disenfranchised all fall under that category."

What no legal immigrants, Dorothy?

Thomas and M.A.
You both are quite nasty and uncharitable. I don't appreciate it. We can disagree, and do so respectfully. I would never allow my debate students to disrespect their competitors as you have so disprespected me. Name calling? Give me a break. Trying to deflect points by saying that I am upset because you pointed something out on my blog. Give me a break.

T.S: "Not to enable the poor to share in our goods is to steal from them and deprive them of life. The goods we possess are not ours, but theirs." Where did I find this quote? Who said it? St. John Chrysostom from the Catechism of the Catholic Church #2446.
Also from the CCC #2448: "Hence those who are oppressed by poverty are the object of a preferential love on the part of the Church . . . " Not a full quote.

So, if this makes me "leftist" so be it. I am not concerned with labels. I am more concerned with following the Catechism of the Catholic Church and helping those in need. Until our country changes our immigration laws, I will continue to help feed those without papers, sponsor them so they can become legal, and share what I have.

What have YOU done besides applaud the building of some pathetic little fence that will merely be a speedbump for those who traffice humans?
