I'm so mad, I could smoke a pickle!!!

I'm a regular, daily reader of VDare, an illegal immigration restriction site ....................... now comes word from the Conference of Catholic Bishops that Catholics' immortal souls are in jeopardy, if "we" don't tow the Church's line on voting in regards illegal immigration .............................. Hellfire & Damnation - how DARE they demand we throw away our national sovereignty?

I never jumped on the bandwagon, tarring all priests with the "pedophile" tag - stood up for those I've known & considered good people - and now, some clerical bureaucrat has the temerity to threaten my soul? Ohhhhh, nononononono - AIN'T GONNA HAPPEN!!!

I'm with you on this one.

What you're seeing here is something I've been fighting personally for some time. The politicization of absolutely everything has now completely penetrated the Church hierarchy, such that even God's ministers frequently fail to distinguish between one's personal conscience and one's pragmatic evaluations of the public weal.

Unfortunately, it's not easy, even for the very best and brightest persons, to disentangle their religious convictions from their public policy preferences. When I wrote this essay, fellow conservatives lambasted me for offering aid and comfort to the enemy. None so blind as those who will not see...

As I read " this essay" I fully understand how you feel about the subject and agree with you.

God is our judge, not man.
