The annual UD Ministry Conference is this October. Last year, they had the freaky deaky modernist heterodox Fr. Ron Rolheiser for a keynote speaker. Who did they select this year? Roger Cardinal Mahoney, he of the $660 million sex abuse settlement, of accused perjury under oath, and toleration (or endorsement) of all manner of apostasy:
At UDMC 2012, Cardinal Mahony will give the Friday morning keynote on the following topic: “I Was A Stranger, And You Welcomed Me.” Cardinal Mahony will explore the Biblical roots for our approach to migration and immigration, will offer a survey of the four waves of American immigration, will give the Church’s constant teachings on immigrants, and will give a forecast of future worker needs in our country as baby boomers retire.
So, he’s going to come and continue his endorsement of unconstrained immigration. Too bad for he and his cohorts, who have done so much to lead to the collapse of the Faith in this country (and seek to offset that collapse by a constant influx of Catholic immigrants from the south), hispanic immigration has all but dried up, and will continue to do so. Our hispanic neighbors to the south and no longer reproducing at sufficient levels to drive demand for huge waves of immigration. Net immigration was about zero from 2008-2011. The bishops of different nations have played a major role in that enormous development, as well.
I have to note the irony that a prelate so darkly associated with the abuse crisis in the Church would come to speak in Dallas, the Diocese where it all began with Rudy Kos and where the infamous “Dallas policy” of throwing priests under the bus came into being. Perhaps it’s less ironic, than perfectly reflective of the crisis in leadership in the Church in this country.
