Immigration & The Christ

The Cardinal-Archbishop of Los Angeles and many other Catholic “leaders” have made claims that Jesus the Christ would have supported open-borders and free immigrations into the USA.

That is a lie!

First, Jesus' kingdom was NOT of this world. How do I know? He said so himself! There is very little in the Gospels with direct application to government as opposed to the great number of verses addressed to the redemption of individuals and preaching His Word to the nations.

The most direct statement as to government was the classic “Give unto Caesar what is Caesar's and to God what is God's”. At the time of Jesus citizenship and residency in the Empire did, in fact, belong to Caesar and the Roman Senate. Through time that, in the USA, has passed to the Congress and the Legislature of the Several States (Yes, the States still have some residual power over citizenship, a power which may be increased when the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution is finally enforces.)

James, the bishops in the US and Canada are the direct descendants of the apostles, specifically Judas. Very few Bishops worth their rations.

Wunderbar! Even if it is not universally true.
