The Catholic Church’s Push for a Multicultural Utopia Gets Weird

[With faith in Our Lord Jesus Christ waning dramatically billions of dollars at stake, the Church Bergoglio, Caritas Internationalis, the USCCCP, Catholic Charities USA, and Catholic Relief Services are embarking on a yuge media campaign to undermine the national security of western nations, especially that of the United States, using our tax dollars. Cut them off, cut them all off. -Cyprian]

By Susan D. Harris, Sept. 17

Motivated by the Gospel of Jesus Christ, who they claim was himself a migrant and a refugee; the Catholic Church is set to kick off their “Share the Journey” campaign on September 27, 2017. With left-leaning Pope Francis at the helm, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) intends to instruct all Catholics to get with the program and accept all kinds of immigrants in the U.S. — or face eternal damnation.

Worse yet, I’m going to outline how the Catholic Church is putting young people through questionable psychological exercises in an odd game of “be the refugee.”

Hot off the presses and hitting a church near you comes the pamphlet, “Our Faith Teaches: Welcoming the Refugee and the Migrant.” The pamphlet begins the church’s two-year mass education effort to condition (especially United States) Catholics to support programs like “Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals” (DACA) and apparently accept “global migration” by any immigrant group — no questions asked.

The “Share the Journey” website first introduces us to immigrant “Ruth” — a name obviously meant to invoke the Biblical Ruth who was widowed and then followed her mother-in-law into a strange land — and famously gave the world, “Whither thou goest, I will go.” Today’s Ruth, however, sadly “lived in the shadows” until President Obama introduced DACA. We are told that, “Over 780,000 youth have received protection from the DACA program since its inception by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in 2012.” The USCCB official statement is pretty clear on the subject and reads in part:

The cancellation of the DACA program is reprehensible. It causes unnecessary fear for DACA youth and their families. These youth entered the U.S. as minors and often know America as their only home…This decision is unacceptable and does not reflect who we are as Americans…As people of faith, we say to DACA youth — regardless of your immigration status (emphasis mine), you are children of God and welcome in the Catholic Church. The Catholic Church supports you and will advocate for you.

So they aren’t just welcoming illegals into the church spiritually and offering hot meals, they’re also saying “come to us and we’ll help you fight the government.”

It’s much bigger than DACA, though. Over the next two years, the Catholic Church will attempt to convince every adherent to its faith that its long history of social justice is culminating in forcing every country, (but especially the United States) into accepting any and all illegal immigrants in the name of Jesus Christ. One of the two greatest commandments was, after all, “Love your neighbor as yourself,” (the name of the church’s first upcoming campaign for immigrants and refugees;) and if one fails to comply, that would obviously be a sin; and Jesus — the scorned migrant — was crucified for the forgiveness of our sins. If you think this is too over-the-top, consider that the “Social Justice” part of the church’s catechism is being invoked with a heavy-handedness not seen since its inception. From Article 3, Social Justice, we find the phrases:

    “Distribution of wealth…”

  • “Social justice is linked to the common good…”
  • “Society ensures social justice by providing the conditions that allow associations and individuals to obtain their due.”
  • “The duty of making oneself a neighbor to others and actively serving them becomes even more urgent when it involves the disadvantaged, in whatever area this may be…This same duty extends to those who think or act differently from us.”
  • “These differences belong to God’s plan, who wills that each receive what he needs from others…These differences encourage and often oblige persons to practice…sharing of goods; they foster the mutual enrichment of cultures.”
  • “The equal dignity of human persons requires the effort to reduce excessive social and economic inequalities”

(In an interesting aside, this article comparing Socialism to Catholicism, then subsequently rejecting the idea, reads like it was written in 2017 rather than 1913.)

This scrutiny of the Catechism of the Catholic Church is done now owing to the church’s current in-your-face activism and their upcoming agenda which begins with the “week of prayer and action for migrants and refugees.” Set to run from October 7-13, the main webpage prominently features a Muslim woman; and since all of the pictures beneath her appear to be of Muslims, one assumes they are the only type of “immigrant and refugee” that the church is concerned with.

The toolkit offered for “prayer and action” has instructions for implementation at Mass, in Catholic schools, on college campuses, and at community-wide events.

  1. Tancredo: Open Letter to Pope Francis–Churches Have Dogmas and Missionaries, Free Nations Have Constitutions and Borders

    by Tom Tancredo, 18 Sep 2017

    Your Holiness, recently, I have been criticized for saying that your advocacy of open borders and the U.S. Catholic Church’s aggressive support for amnesty are as much a response to declining church membership as an expression of sincere humanitarian values.

    Pope Francis, I am writing to explain that this criticism of persistent Catholic Church meddling in U.S. political affairs is not directed at you personally.

    In April of 2008, in response to Pope Benedict XVI’s criticism of U.S. immigration policies I said, “This isn’t preaching; it is faith-based marketing.” My statements at that time earned me widespread attacks not only from the New York Times but from the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, the Mexican American Legal Defense Fund, and other partisans of open borders.

    Like your predecessor, Pope Benedict XVI, Your Holiness appears to enjoy giving advice on immigration policy to presidents and parliaments.

    Here’s a suggestion from a fellow Christian who, like you, strives to be a humble servant of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. To the extent that you feel compelled to enter into the political arena and address the subject of immigration policies, why not focus on the enormous differences that exist in those policies around the world?

    Certainly you know that the United States of America accepts more legal immigrants than all the other 196 members of the United Nations combined. The USA has also accepted more refugees for permanent resettlement than any other nation of the world. To take a current example, the United States has accepted tens of thousands of Rohingya Muslim and Hindu refugees from Burma (Myanmar), while Burma’s neighboring countries like India, Bangladesh, and Thailand have largely shunned them.

    Did I somehow miss a news release from Vatican City praising our generosity towards those persecuted religious refugees? Likewise, did I miss the one announcing the Vatican’s “open door policy” in this matter?

    I also respectfully suggest that you and your Cardinals and Bishops need to be more observant of the important distinction between speaking ex cathedra on matters of faith and morals — where among fellow Catholics you presumably have unique expertise and authority — and expressing your personal opinions on purely political matters, where if I may say so, you have no more expertise or authority than artists, journalists, golfers, or the average member of the United States Congress.

    I believe most Americans understand and appreciate the historical record that forced the erection of 50 foot walls around the Vatican. They were built to protect and defend. There was a need to restrict entry of those who meant to do harm and also to insure that the integrity of the city-state. Considering the fact that you maintain both the walls and careful scrutiny of those admitted beyond them, you can see why even in the 21st century border security is still an important and necessary part of maintaining a nation state. The fact that the U.S. attempts to accomplish that task while still being the most immigrant-welcoming nation in the world seems to me, should Your Holiness feel compelled to address the issue at all, deserves praise instead of criticism. It is this dichotomy that creates skepticism regarding the motivation of such criticism.

    We Americans of the Christian faith have always recognized that churches have a right to propagate the faith and recruit new members; that is part of our First Amendment freedom of religion and freedom of speech. Yet, the corollary to religious freedom is the separation of church and state, so Americans also understand that those necessary and righteous recruitment endeavors must respect and accept a nation’s natural right to protect and defend itself.
