Do As I Say, Not As I Do

Vatican City with wall outlined

U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) is up in arms over President Trump’s action on DACA. This is what they said:  The cancellation of the DACA program is reprehensible. … 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, you are children of God and welcome in the Catholic Church.

You wetbacks may be welcome in church, just stay the fuck out of the Vatican. Vatican City is 110-acre Sovereign State surrounded by a wall, with limited entry, check points and armed guards.

People are upset with Trump because he put the responsibility for solving the problem squarely where it ought to be, Congress. Six months, six years, six decades the problem will not be solved by Congress. The Princes of the Church will continue to be good Democrats and terrible Catholics.

By practice, the Church recognizes that a nation state has a legitimate right to define its borders and dictate who can reside within those borders. Democrats cater to those that maintain a grievance real or imagined to obtain their power. As long as the perception is there that they are trying and feel the down trodden’s pain, they never have to accomplish anything.

How many angels can dance on the head of a pin? Doesn’t matter keep counting.
