Advocate Breaking The Law... cash and valuable prizes!

The USCCB is at it again. Some ridiculous thing called the Cardinal Bernardin New Leadership Award (a perfect example that "new" leadership is much different from "old" leadership) has just been awarded to a Colorado woman who they state is a "Immigration Reform Activist".
According the the USCCB website, the accolades for this gal include the following; Her understanding of Catholic social teaching has informed her position on immigration reform. “I am passionate about insuring that there is a way for undocumented people to become lawful residents and citizens,” she says. “There are 12 million-plus people living in the shadows. As Catholics, we have a responsibility to help them feel welcome and find their place.”Anyone mind if I inject the official teaching of The Catholic Church? #2241 - 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.Gee... in other words, the official teaching of The Church is that a sovereign nation actually CAN control their own borders?? And that the same sovereign nation actually CAN expect those who came to that nation legally to actually expected to obey the law??!! What a concept!

But anyhow, look at that quote from the award winner --
1. The very first sentence - "Her understanding of...". That's a hole of Relativism so big, I could drive a bus through it.

2. The second sentence - "...there is a way for undocumented people to become lawful residents and citizens." First off, their not 'undocumented people'. They're illegal aliens who are breaking the laws of both the United States of America and of The Catholic Church. Secondly, there most certainly is a way to become lawful residents and citizens. It's called obeying the law to begin with. Millions and millions and millions of LEGAL immigrants have done it for decades. It really is that simple.

3. The third sentence - "There are 12 million-plus people living in the shadows". That's normally where you live when you're a fugitive. What's so hard to understand about that?

4. The fourth sentence - "As Catholics, we have a responsibility to help them feel welcome and find their place". Of course we are... but does that include being an active partner in breaking the laws of this country and The Church? Oh, what the hell. Why not? The USCCB has been doing that for decades. Should I even bring up the hundreds of millions of dollars paid out by the bishops themselves for protecting kiddie-rapist "priests"?

Oh, and the award winner was nominated by the darling of the conservative Novus Ordo crowd, Archbishop Charles J. Chaput. Hey, I thought he was a Canon Law & Order kinda guy? Guess not.
