NY Cardinal Dolan: Latino immigrants "are scorned and rejected. Neither political party can claim success in dealing with them justly."

Cardinal Timothy Dolan of the Archdiocese of New York recently openned an op-ed in which he wrote "the immigrant, especially Catholic Latinos, are scorned and rejected. Neither political party can claim success in dealing with them justly, and once again, they are being demonized in our society.

Open borders, illegal aliens by the millions depleting infrastructure, finances and welfare rolls, and flagrant flaunting of the rule of law aren't good enough for the Cardinal of New York.

I attended a U.S. citizenship ceremony recently and thousands of people were sworn in as citizens of the United States. They represented more than 50 countries of origin, and all were welcomed. Guess what? They followed the rules. None were scorned, rejected or demonized. What the Cardinal might be referring to is the fact that Americans are not happy with the undue influx of millions of illegal aliens and criminals from Mexico and South America in the last 20 years.

If people shouldn't respect borders, fences or laws, why does the NY Archdiocese have locks on its doors and gates around its properties? Why do they have no trespassing signs? I guarantee that go to any Catholic church in New York and you will see signs regulating tresspass and parking plastered all over their property. Violate these rules and they will call the police.

While we're at it, I should point out that The official Catechism of the Catholic Church, Section 2241, states that immigrants are obliged to follow the laws of the country that receives them! Read it and weep, straight from the Vatican website!:

2241 The more prosperous nations are obliged, to the extent they are able, to welcome the foreigner in search of the security and the means of livelihood which he cannot find in his country of origin. Public authorities should see to it that the natural right is respected that places a guest under the protection of those who receive him.

Political authorities, for the sake of the common good for which they are responsible, may make the exercise of the right to immigrate subject to various juridical conditions, especially with regard to the immigrants' duties toward their country of adoption. Immigrants are obliged to respect with gratitude the material and spiritual heritage of the country that receives them, to obey its laws and to assist in carrying civic burdens.

So why is what's good for the goose not good for the gander, Cardinal?

Cardinal Dolan "only respecting what's his" is disingenuous and immoral.

This pity party for criminal lawbreaker illegal aliens doesn't fly, nor is it in line with virtue.

Furthermore, at the same time that Cardinal Doilan is flaunting violations of the law, he adulates corrupt police and smears what he calls the "shrill but tiny minority" whom "might try to malign" the 'heroic' police. I wrote a letter to cardinal Dolan in January, which his secretary acknowledged receiving. The letter outlined the facts of the widespread corruption of New York police, which is also acknowledged by New York State prosecutors themselves.

Another thing Dolan did which I addressed in my letter to Dolan involved victims of the pervert priest scandal. On August 4, 2011, Dolan posted 'Gratitude to the Catholic League' in which he wrote, "My thanks to Bill Donohue and the Catholic League for the following press release issued last week."

Donohue had written, in part, "If this isn't surreal enough, consider that the phony victims' group, SNAP, is accusing New York Archbishop Timothy Dolan of covering up the alleged misconduct, even though Dolan knew nothing about it. He continues "According to SNAP's press release today, these cases also show the Church's tolerance of pedophilia. But neither of the two cases involved pedophilia: in both instances, the alleged victims were teenagers. The name of the game is to paint priests as child abusers, which is a bold-face lie. It's time the media turned its cameras on the liars at SNAP."

First of all that is extremely outrageous thing to say. As a lifelong Catholic who attended parochial schools, I have quite a lot of knowledge about the pervert priest scandal, and make no mistake, that's exactly what it is- a satanic inspired horror- where children's lives are destroyed by supposed men of God. My expose last year about defrocked priest Richard Allen Henry was featured in 10 mainstream corporate newspapers in Los Angeles County.

Regarding the claims about SNAP; Four years later Dolan still on his Archdiocese website have an article written by a vitriolic right-wing blowhard "Bill Donohue" who claims SNAP is a phony victims group. Donahue always blames the victims of pervert priests, insinuating that the victims make it up for money.

So, the Archdiocese of NY re-posts Donohue's blog stating that SNAP is "a phony victims group." Let's look at just two members of SNAP. Mary Grant was raped by Catholic priest John Lenihan when she was a teenager- the satanic pervert admitted the rape after Grant confronted him on it while police had a wiretap running. Was the rape phony? is Mary Grant phony? No, unfortunately it was all too real. Manny Vega, a decorated police detective from Oxnard, CA and former Marine who received the Navy and Marine Corps Medal of heroism for pulling people out of a burning helicopter in South Korea, is a member of SNAP. He was sexually abused by a priest as an altar boy in Los Angeles and is one of the very rare victims that still practices Catholicism. Is Vega a member of a "phony victims group"? What an outrage to even dare make such a claim. How many of these poor victims lose their souls after they abandon their faith because of this monstrosity? vvv

Dolan's column on immigration was titled 'St. Frances Xavier Cabrini, pray for us!' Here are some excerpts.

"Last Thursday, November 13, was the feast day of “one of our own,” St. Frances Xavier Cabrini. As I try to do each year, I visited her shrine up in Washington Heights, venerated her tomb, and greeted her sisters, the wonderful Missionaries of the Sacred Heart.

Mother Cabrini is, as you probably know, the patron saint of immigrants. Why? Because, when Pope Leo XIII sent her here to New York from her beloved Italy in 1887, he gave her one simple directive: “Take care of the Italian immigrants!”

...Did she ever! And did they need care! Those Italian immigrants – – perhaps your grandparents – – were ignored, ridiculed, stereotyped, discriminated against, and taken advantage of. They were poor, jammed into stinking tenements, separated from families at home, and prone to sickness.

As embarrassing as it is for me to admit it, even the Church they loved at times neglected them. The Italian immigrants had no priests or parishes; the sacraments and religious instruction were scarce; the bishops and priests (yes, I blush to confess, mostly Irish), with some glorious exceptions, scorned them.

We need her again! We need new Mother Cabrinis! Once again, the immigrant, especially Catholic Latinos, are scorned and rejected. Neither political party can claim success in dealing with them justly, and once again, they are being demonized in our society. I sometimes wonder if Lady Liberty in our harbor is blushing.

And we bishops, priests, deacons, women religious, and lay leaders have to admit that we might not be doing enough, either.

You have often heard me quote Ed Koch: “When the immigrant arrived in New York – – poor, homesick, scared, and unsure – – two great women welcomed them: Lady Liberty and Mother Church.” Our nation risks no longer deserving that compliment; our Church today is challenged by it. That was my prayer Thursday before Mother Cabrini’s tomb: might we ever continue her work!
