CATHOLIC CHURCH'S NEW INTERNATIONAL VIEWS
By Joe Kress
May 21, 2006
At the risk of being called unsympathetic, selfish and an uncaring Catholic, I feel it the duty of one who spent 28 years in the military, partaking in the Korean and Vietnam non-war wars and living to remember them, wish to defend H.R. 4437, the Border Protection, Anti-Terrorism and Illegal Immigration Control Act of 2005.
The purpose why we have a military is to protect this nation from those who desire to destroy it, either by invading it or encircling it and thereby choking it through commercial or other means such as terrorist activities. There is one other way that an enemy can win. I call it the “Gandhi tactic” whereby millions of unarmed, oppressed people are forced though planned starvation, unemployment and unattended sickness are with a silent hand herded across our borders by Mexico’s president, Vicente Fox and his minions. Now, these atheist/Marxist/communists are assisted by prelates within the Catholic Church in their misconceived concept of Christian charity.
The history of the bishops of Mexico reminds me of the Cristeros rebellion which began in 1926, a state versus Church civil war that lasted until 1929. The Catholic peasant hit and run army called themselves after Cristeros Rey, a martyr against government tyranny. They fought bravely; many among them were priests who also became martyrs for their faith.
I wish I could say the same of the Catholic bishops who always discouraged the rebellion and nearly all fled the country early on in the struggle. It was Pope Pius XI, located in the safety of the Vatican, who told the Cristeros to lay down their arms. Being devout Catholics, they obeyed and were slaughtered for it. Ever since then, the anticlerical and anti-religious laws that caused the rebellion still remain on the books. Many of the present hard-line party officials have a schizophrenic attitude toward anticlerical laws. On the one hand, they embrace them, but are fearful of a second rebellion. President Fox has been reluctant to enforce the most repugnant ones such as burning down churches and forcing priests to wear civilian clothes. He is especially fearful of the U.S. public’s ire, if that ever reoccurred and of course would stop his invasion.
Now the misguided Catholic prelates are disposed to protect illegal aliens within the boundaries of the United States in the name of charity. Why, may I ask, are not the present Pope and Catholic prelates using every means of diplomatic pressure and every means of charity available to them to help the poor peasants in Mexico instead of encouraging them to come to the U.S.A.?
The migration of the poorest within the Mexican population across Mexico’s northern border is the result of a Soviet/Nazi-type pre-WWII program instituted after the 1929 defeat of the Cristeros that was popular until 1980, where Mexican wives were given medals and money for having no less than five babies each. This was one of the practices of the communist/Masonic Mexican government because it had illusions of future prosperity and need for farm and industrial workers. That lasted until the explosion in the demographics proved that there wasn’t enough water, tillable land or means to employ a population of mostly mixed Indian blood. The majority are undereducated, ill-nourished and without medical care. The result caused the encouragement of emigration to become a top priority due to government failures and the corruption that exists at every level of authority in the Mexican government.
The GATT, NAFTA and the curse of “Free Trade” only exacerbated the problems of the peasant farmers who couldn’t compete with the U.S. mega-agribusinesses. Either President Fox moved these people to the U.S. or another revolution will be sure to happen. This would then affect the tenuous status of the Church where anti-Catholic laws still remain.
But the Church’s prelates are mostly relieving the Mexican government’s problems and other problems within Central and South America by advocating open borders for our own government to meet the challenge. The tides of illegal peasants, without sponsors, without education, without money are exploding, soon to destroy our entire economy. They are hard working and able to do manual labor for substandard wages which, in turn, slowly, imperceptibly causes an undercutting of the living standards of our own countrymen who were used to a living wage and other benefits. Our Black population is the big loser in competition for available jobs. Worse yet, Vicente Fox boasts that the entire Southwest will one day be returned to Mexico.
I was taught that first in importance is God, then family, then country. Should God’s work necessarily be conducted only in the U.S. and not in Mexico or other Latin American countries? I doubt if God cares, so long as it is done. On the other hand, our families are second, next to God, in the pecking order of importance and the effects of the invasion include high crimes and with it a change in our own culture which now embodies the “bite.” Those living below our borders are imbedded with a culture to expect a payoff is necessary for any consideration, either by the police, politicians, the garbage collector or the local mailman. It has spread here in many ways for example: taxes are not collected on wages, workmen’s compensation is not paid by employers, and medical and pension benefits are also ignored. All of this imported lack of ethics and misguided ideals of charity affects our own nation’s citizens, their lifestyle and their security. Schools are overflowing with children whose parents do not contribute; hospitals are inundated with third world’s illegal poor who demand emergency care and Medicaid… paid for by us, the nation’s taxpayers. Even a large portion of the wages of these illegal foreign workers are sent back to their country of origin and lost to the American economy.
The Church is unintentionally promoting an underground system which violates our national sovereignty using the premise that borders are to be violated where poverty exists. The bishops believe there is no right to sovereignty in countries that are wealthy and that citizens of those countries, considered rich, are to be forced to open their pocketbooks in the form of taxation to benefit those less fortunate. International socialism is what the Church is really advocating, contrary to what every Pope believed until the election of John the XXIII, who began the long transition of the Church into modernism and ecumenism. As time progresses and the Church continues to use what appears as charity to promote its social ideals, there is a real possibility that the Church will be subjected to taxation when it is recognized as a political position rather than a religious one.
Many Mexicans and other Central and South American Catholics incorporate ancient Indian ceremonies rife with superstitions, a practice not remotely Christian; so even the Church here is being influenced by what is foreign to Church dogma.
The culture is also foreign to American culture where the male in the family places the female in second class status; the clustering within the cities and towns where Spanish is the dominant language and other practices act as barriers for both legal and illegal aliens to integrate within the general population. Los Angeles and Little Miami are such examples. The legal aliens are prone to hide the illegal from the authorities. Instead of joining the American community, our government is actually encouraging language barriers by offering Spanish as the primary language.
It wasn’t until the modernists and the ecumenists within the Catholic Church infiltrated Vatican II that the word God coupled with country became obsolete. This coincided with the New World Order whereby open borders and free trade interlocked with the Catholic hierarchy as if that concept were preordained in heaven. More than likely it was because earthly prelates desired within the Vatican a leveling of the monarchical Papal authority to be replaced by a gaggle of councils where their politics of charity integrated with religious decision-making processes. One could conclude that the politics of globalism infiltrated the Church - making it a tool for international socialism under U.N. auspices.
I’ll never forget the news release reporting Pope Paul’s address to the U.N. assembly that they were …”the last best hope for man” and he begged the world to recognize the Church’s new humanism. “We too, more than any others do worship man. Man reaching to the moon took him even farther, honor to human courage! Honor to the synthesis of the scientific and organizational activity of Man, king of the earth and now prince of the heavens!” This sounded more appropriate if it were said by the Grand Master of the Masonic Order than from the supreme prelate of the Catholic Church.
The Pat Robertson followers also have their own agenda; which is to place Israel‘s survivability above our own nation’s. The followers of Darby are fanatics but are still a major sect within Protestant fundamentalism. They are convinced that the land of Israel must be protected until the final battle of Armageddon…a belief instituted by Rev. Darby in the mid-1830s.
The question then must be asked, why should we have a military when so many have dual citizenship, or no citizenship, or more loyalty to Israel or Mohammed than to our own country? When illegal aliens will be allowed to vote, as I’m sure is happening right now, the choice will be not to protect our borders, since the illegal aliens and their supporters, the liberal Democrat Party, turn-coat Republican Party, globalist president and the bishops evidently think it unnecessary, since so many are poor and in need of help. (“Why waste it on defense?” they now mumble.)
This thinking is also common to David Rockefeller and the Rothschild banking interests of Europe, where the seat of the New World Order will finally rest; and where the U.N. will control a world without borders, devoid of religion; where stem cells will be produced from aborted babies, and where it takes a village to raise a child. Nationhood and the American Constitution will be meaningless and the writers of history will hide who really destroyed the American dream.
I believe the House of Representatives’ HR 4437, in one of its rare good decisions, after over 85 percent of the entire U.S. legal citizens belatedly got on their case to stop the modern Visigoths and finally voted to preserve the Union. Let’s hope that the political dissidents, the far left and the Catholic bishops will not prevail when the Senate votes its own flawed bill. Amnesty is not the answer; improved entrance access for those in line waiting to enter legally is our nation’s most important legislation.
