When It Comes to Illegal Aliens, Papal Infallibility Is Anything But!

When It Comes to Illegal Aliens, Papal Infallibility Is Anything But!

By John Lillpop

Perhaps it is naive to expect much in the way of moral leadership from an institution that coddles sexual perverts--disguised as "Holy Fathers" -- who use their presumed holiness to deceive and sexually manipulate thousands of unsuspecting children, while professing to act in the name of God.

How much respect is owed an institution that has spent billions of dollars to settle law suits brought by innocent children against said "Holy Fathers"?

With all due respect to Pope Benedict, the Catholic Church is no longer respected as a source for moral inspiration in America. Words from the Gospel of Luke seem to apply.

In the Gospel of Luke, it is written:

Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?

To be perfectly candid, the fruit of the Catholic church these days is rotten. As in figs and thistles.

Which means that the pope's rhetoric on illegal immigration is irrelevant at best, and at best is self-serving drivel intended to shore up sagging membership in the Catholic church.

Papal "infallibility" and or "inerrancy" is obviously a myth when one considers the following:

Rather than blaming Americans for resisting the invasion of our great nation, Pope Benedict should be providing moral and spiritual leadership by calling on illegal aliens and the Mexican government to respect the borders, laws, property and culture of the United States.

Rather than chiding U.S. authorities for enforcing the rule of law, the pope should demand that illegal aliens voluntarily return to their nations of origin and follow established procedures for legal immigration to America.

Rather than calling for open-ended compassion for those here unlawfully, the pope should remind illegal aliens that receiving public services such as education, food stamps, and health care to which they are not entitled is stealing. Stealing is a sin.

Illegal immigration is like robbing a bank. It involves disregard for the law and wanton thievery of goods and services belonging to, or intended for, others. It is wrong, and should be condemned.

Because the Pope's position on illegal aliens is immoral, sound advise for the pontiff would be as follows: Papal Infallibility is a myth!
