RECENT ARTICLES FROM LibertyFight.com:

There seems to be many radical left-wing bishops, priests and clergy within the Catholic church who are constantly chiding us that we need to welcome everyone into th United States, without limits. Conservaties and traditional Catholics are not happy with this. But what does the actual Catechism of the Catholic Church, which catholics must adhere to, state about immigration? it might surprise you.

The hierarchy of the Catholic Church itself, however, has been infested, sadly with radical open border advocates, who act as if it's immoral for the Unite States to have borders or enforce our sovereignty. This has never been the actual teaching or position of the church. These modernists, or so they're called, have done a great amount of damage to the church, in many ways, yet the battle betwen the traditionalists and the modernists continues.

That's another issue entirely, for today we will focus on solely immigration. Also, I will post a link to what the U.S. Conference of catholic Bishops says on immigration reform- What they say will shock you too! It shocked me, and I just found this gem this morning! Finally, I will include some statements from Saint Thomas on immigration.



Here is the relevent excerpt from the Catechism of the Catholic Church: [emphasis added.]
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.

2242 The citizen is obliged in conscience not to follow the directives of civil authorities when they are contrary to the demands of the moral order, to the fundamental rights of persons or the teachings of the Gospel. Refusing obedience to civil authorities, when their demands are contrary to those of an upright conscience, finds its justification in the distinction between serving God and serving the political community. "Render therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's."48 "We must obey God rather than men"... [Much more below.]



The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, in a shocking August 2013 document, stated that the DUTY of the U.S. government is to secure the border, enforce the laws, and intercept unauthorized migrants! How this slipped by the alternative media I have no idea, other than not too many alternative/ truth outlets cover the Catholic church in depth. I am proud to say that is what makes LibertyFight.com unique. You can read that article here: U.S. Catholic Bishops Shocking Document: The "Duty of Government Is To Secure One's Border And Enforce The Law For The Sake Of The Common Good."


Below are further excerpts from the Catholic Catechism. Interestingly, they even discuss armed resistance to government. Below that is the LibertyFight.com Catholicism article archive.

As an aside - In 2013, my articles on the pervert priest scandal and Father Richard Henry were referenced in 13 mainstream newspapers, including The Los Angeles Daily News, San Gabriel Valley Tribune, Silicon Valley Mercury News, Long Beach Press Telegram, The Press Enterprise, Inland Valley Daily Bulletin, L.A. Harbor Daily Breeze, Whittier Daily News, and many others. Here are two those articles and links:



Duties of civil authorities

2235 Those who exercise authority should do so as a service. "Whoever would be great among you must be your servant."41 The exercise of authority is measured morally in terms of its divine origin, its reasonable nature and its specific object. No one can command or establish what is contrary to the dignity of persons and the natural law.

2236 The exercise of authority is meant to give outward expression to a just hierarchy of values in order to facilitate the exercise of freedom and responsibility by all. Those in authority should practice distributive justice wisely, taking account of the needs and contribution of each, with a view to harmony and peace. They should take care that the regulations and measures they adopt are not a source of temptation by setting personal interest against that of the community.42

2237 Political authorities are obliged to respect the fundamental rights of the human person. They will dispense justice humanely by respecting the rights of everyone, especially of families and the disadvantaged.

The political rights attached to citizenship can and should be granted according to the requirements of the common good. They cannot be suspended by public authorities without legitimate and proportionate reasons. Political rights are meant to be exercised for the common good of the nation and the human community.


The duties of citizens

2238 Those subject to authority should regard those in authority as representatives of God, who has made them stewards of his gifts:43 "Be subject for the Lord's sake to every human institution. . . . Live as free men, yet without using your freedom as a pretext for evil; but live as servants of God."44 Their loyal collaboration includes the right, and at times the duty, to voice their just criticisms of that which seems harmful to the dignity of persons and to the good of the community.

2239 It is the duty of citizens to contribute along with the civil authorities to the good of society in a spirit of truth, justice, solidarity, and freedom. The love and service of one's country follow from the duty of gratitude and belong to the order of charity. Submission to legitimate authorities and service of the common good require citizens to fulfill their roles in the life of the political community.

2240 Submission to authority and co-responsibility for the common good make it morally obligatory to pay taxes, to exercise the right to vote, and to defend one's country:


Pay to all of them their dues, taxes to whom taxes are due, revenue to whom revenue is due, respect to whom respect is due, honor to whom honor is due.45 [Christians] reside in their own nations, but as resident aliens. They participate in all things as citizens and endure all things as foreigners. . . . They obey the established laws and their way of life surpasses the laws. . . . So noble is the position to which God has assigned them that they are not allowed to desert it.46

The Apostle exhorts us to offer prayers and thanksgiving for kings and all who exercise authority, "that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life, godly and respectful in every way."47

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.

2242 The citizen is obliged in conscience not to follow the directives of civil authorities when they are contrary to the demands of the moral order, to the fundamental rights of persons or the teachings of the Gospel. Refusing obedience to civil authorities, when their demands are contrary to those of an upright conscience, finds its justification in the distinction between serving God and serving the political community. "Render therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's."48 "We must obey God rather than men":49

When citizens are under the oppression of a public authority which oversteps its competence, they should still not refuse to give or to do what is objectively demanded of them by the common good; but it is legitimate for them to defend their own rights and those of their fellow citizens against the abuse of this authority within the limits of the natural law and the Law of the Gospel.50

2243 Armed resistance to oppression by political authority is not legitimate, unless all the following conditions are met: 1) there is certain, grave, and prolonged violation of fundamental rights; 2) all other means of redress have been exhausted; 3) such resistance will not provoke worse disorders; 4) there is well-founded hope of success; and 5) it is impossible reasonably to foresee any better solution.

Williamson had made a very eloquent speech outlining how 9/11 was an inside job. I applauded his speech , and as much as I'd have loved to hear a Catholic Bishop to state the truth as Williamson did, I had to point out that Williamson had been excommunicated some years ago and was not in union with the Catholic church. This has now changed! Pope Benedict XVI has reinstated Bishop Richard Williamson as of yesterday and it is making news today primarily because of Williamson's comments regarding the number of Jews killed in gas chambers during WWII.

Mike Wallace Interviews Margaret Sanger on Eugenics, Her opposition to the Catholic Church, 1957
With Hillary Clinton recently admitting that she admires Margaret Sanger, this 1957 interview of Sanger by Mike Wallace is very interesting watching. Wallace asks Sanger her motivation is not based on opposition to the Church. Sanger's mother was Catholic from Ireland, and had 11 children. "The population question is a great concern today", Sanger opines. They spend a great deal of time discussing the Catholic position on artificial birth control, in a very interesting interview the likes of which would probably not be aired on secular TV today. Wallace then focuses on Sanger's history of publicly opposing the church. As Wallace confronts Sanger on her past statements, she gets fidgety, blinking, rubbing her face, and darting out her tongue.
