People all the time – “The Catholic Church is a bunch of Republicans.  They should have their tax privilege revoked”

Well, here’s the issue that has had me in the most hot water as a pastor – immigration – and I don’t think the Church’s stance on this issue is going to get a Catholic invited to speak at the Republican National Convention any time soon.

The behavior of our fellow citizens at the border recently has been sickening to watch.  The Church is for borders, and for sovereignty, but anyone with “eyes to see and ears to hear” knows that some of our fellow Americans have clearly been acting in the wrong.

We’ve got a lot of smart people in this country – we can surely figure out a way to help people live here who want to be here.
