Shock Claim: Churches Ask Parishioners
To Shelter Illegals, Not Tell The Media

Independent Journal Review, by Mike Miller

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 7/9/2014 11:19:57 AM

Churches in California have reportedly asked their parishioners to shelter illegal aliens in their homes – and not to tell the media. A retired doctor and his wife spoke to Rush Limbaugh Tuesday about the disturbing request. “Ann” and “Eddie,” who live in Southern California, told Limbaugh that the Diocese of San Bernardino made the decision to house illegals after the bishop received a call from the federal government: Ann: We live in Southern California, and we’re Catholic…and there was a town hall meeting last evening, emergency meeting called by our local parish priest, ordered by our bishop. They have

While we cannot confirm the claims of Ann and Eddie,...

Why not? It´s easy enough to call the diocesan offices and ask.

Not only are citizens being ´asked´ to take in these ill children and criminals but they can´t talk about it. Why? The cover up, as usual, will be worse than the action. Americans should not be told to accept the burdens that the rest of the world will not. Our country is sinking faster than the sleeping electorate realizes.

As an ex-Catholic, I have often considered going back. The Church has been a stalwart in defense of life and the traditional family. The insistence of Church officials in harboring illegals, however, is a major factor in my not doing so.

when I read the interview last night, my first thought was re the nanny story in CA. Remember? The lady who refused to leave and the police who said they couldn´t help because it was a "civil issue"???

So, if these families are told it will be 30 days and it extends to 60 or 90 days - or maybe beyond, will there come a point where they cannot legally impel the "children" to leave??

And, can they request REAL children - or will some get stuck with faux children who are covered with gang ink? What happens in mid August when school starts - will the families be compelled to register the children in local schools? What about medical needs?

This isn´t the same as taking in a stray puppy or working with a shelter to temporarily home pets. This is a serious issue with serious implications long term...

#3 I hope you´ll not let this impact your consideration too much, the Church is still a good place. I too disagree with the actions of this diocese. Sometimes I want to throw my hands up in the air and scream "what are you doing, why aren´t you listening to parishioners like me, conservatives who go to mass!?" I have to remind myself that I can´t force the Catholic Church to fit neatly into a political box, especially an American one.

Don´t get me wrong, I know the Church is political. But sometimes it helps to step away from the American political system and look at the Church from a purely universal Catholic prespective. I´m forcing myself to do that these days. I´m not giving up my conservative convictions, far from it. But the world seems to be going absolutely crazy and the Church can provide a stability that our political system cannot. I´m starting to find that the view through Catholic glasses looks kind of like the view of America I used to love so much.

All that being said, this is not a good situation and the bishop appears to have been very shortsighted in making this request of people.

ISIS militants fighting in Iraq and Syria have reportedly issued Islamic State passports as part of their ongoing campaign of ´psychological warfare´. Following their attempt to form a caliphate in the vast area of the Middle East under their control, ISIS leaders are said to be introducing passports to give the unrecognised state an air of legitimacy. However experts believe the sinister black and white colouring of the document, which is based on the black jihadist flag flown by ISIS terrorists and warns of a ´deployment of armies´ if the holder comes to harm while travelling abroad, proved the passports are

Obama on the Island

Who wrote that no man is an island? English poet John Donne was wrong some 400 years ago. The president is seeking refuge and peace on Martha’s Vineyard off Cape Cod in Massachusetts. Long ago, the English sea captain who discovered and charted the graceful curving island named it for his daughter Martha. Ever since, its blue sky and water aura is calming and clear, kind to men with daughters. Barack Obama needs to heal from the cuts of Washington warfare. Actually, Obama is an island within an island now. He likes his own company. And he’s got briefing papers

Back when Al Gore was running for president in 2000 he had a line about “fighting for the people against the powerful.” It´s the standard line of the activist. No doubt it´s what the marginalized and dependent classes are looking for in a president. But if you are a responsible individual like me you find that sort of thing insulting. People of the Responsible Self don´t want some community organizer drilling them in a street protest; we just want a government that defends us from enemies foreign and domestic. Defending against enemies foreign and domestic is what governments are actually

Pro-Palestinian protesters marched from downtown to the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center last night to protest technology giant Hewlett-Packard over its Israeli business. “I want to make sure that Hewlett-Packard cannot have a conference without being greeted by 1,000 protesters,” said Liza Behrendt with Jewish Voice for Peace Boston. Hewlett-Packard has been targeted by protesters over technology used by ?Israel in operations involving Palestinians, according to news reports. Hewlett-Packard said in a statement last night: “HP has been strongly committed to socially responsible business practices throughout its 75-year history.

A Challenge to my Leftist Friends –

Dear Lefty Friends, Already this letter will draw the ire of some because they will automatically assume this is yet another indictment of the “leftist” point of view. So right from the jump, I’d like to say that this is not a rebuke of your political persuasion. As a former leftist myself, I know how annoying it can be when conservatives get all smarmy about their views and try to constantly bang the “facts and figures” drums. No, this isn’t an admonishment…but it is a challenge. Nothing more and nothing less. For the purposes of this challenge (and to save

After hundreds of people rioted and looted in Ferguson, Missouri, Sunday evening to protest the death of Michael Brown – an unarmed, black 18-year-old whom a police officer shot over the weekend – CNN anchor Don Lemon sympathized with the rioters and lawbreakers. Appearing as a guest on Brooke Baldwin´s CNN show Monday, Lemon said, "this is about the treatment of men of color in our society." "They are treated differently whether it be law enforcement, whether it be at work, whether it be at a grocery store, whether it be on the street," he said. "They are treated differently,

A Spanish priest who became the first person carrying the deadly Ebola virus to be brought back to Europe for treatment has died in a Madrid hospital. Miguel Pajares, 75, died at the Carlos III Hospital, where he was being treated, a spokeswoman confirmed. A convoy of medics in protective suits escorted the missionary back to Spain last week after he was repatriated on a specially-adapted Airbus plane from Liberia in west Africa. Spain´s Health Ministry said yesterday that it had obtained a course of the U.S.-made drug ZMapp over the weekend to treat the priest. The Madrid hospital would

FERGUSON • Tension stayed high and raw Monday as the St. Louis region waited for answers in the fatal shooting of an unarmed teenager by a municipal police officer. In another day of fast-moving events, the FBI promised to investigate the killing of Michael Brown, 18, on Saturday by a Ferguson police officer. Brown’s parents called for an end to the violence while strongly disputing the police version of their son’s death. More than 1,000 people observed a moment of silence at a meeting called by the NAACP. Throughout the day, protesters continued to face off with police, and as

The president who spent years touting the withdrawal of all U.S. forces from Iraq suddenly has had to distance himself from that action. At the White House on Saturday morning — less than 48 hours after authorizing airstrikes against Islamist militants and humanitarian air drops to save the lives of trapped Iraqi civilians — President Obama blamed his predecessor, George W. Bush, for the absence of American troops in Iraq and rejected the assertion that he could have left a small peacekeeping force in the war-torn nation. He uttered those after three years, and a successful re-election campaign, in which

When he saw an elderly man who couldn’t bend over to tie his shoe, he jumped to action. Only one shoelace was untied, but Gage redid both to make sure the laces were secure. Keith Kiel, who was shopping when he came across Gage helping out, knew he was witnessing a wonderful moment so he snapped a picture and posted it to Facebook as featured below.

The decision by Sen. John Walsh (D-Mont.) not to seek election in November in the wake of a plagiarism scandal is the latest piece of good news for Republicans as they strive to take control of the Senate in less than three months. Walsh’s departure from the race came in the same week that two Republican senators — Pat Roberts in Kansas and Lamar Alexander in Tennessee — defeated tea party challengers in primary fights, ensuring that every GOP senator seeking reelection would be the party’s nominee.

President Obama must really be teed off. Hillary Rodham Clinton, his once-loyal secretary of state and his likeliest successor, has gone rogue, criticizing his foreign policy as too timid. Obama responded with not one but two rounds of golf. Clinton, in an interview with Jeffrey Goldberg published by the Atlantic over the weekend, offered a withering comment on the Obama doctrine, described in shorthand by White House officials as “don’t do stupid [expletive].” Said Clinton: “Great nations need organizing principles, and ‘Don’t do stupid stuff’ is not an organizing principle.” As the criticism became public, Obama was doggedly sticking with

It didn´t take long for Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN) to embrace amnesty again. As soon as he won his Senate primary election against conservative Joe Carr, Alexander said it was "embarrassing" that Republicans have not yet passed a bill. Never mind that Alexander spent nearly his entire primary campaign trying to convince voters that he was against "amnesty" and would never dare to embrace it before the primary election. “I don’t know how it will affect our politics in the near term," Alexander told Politico of a comprehensive immigration bill. “I think it’s embarrassing for us not to deal with the problem, and

An Isis commander at a terrorist training camp north of Baghdad accidentally detonated a belt packed with explosives during a demonstration in front of a group militants on Monday, killing himself and 21 nearby trainees. The accident was a source of dark humour for locals, with suicide attacks in public spaces having become an almost daily occurrence in Iraq. A bomber struck a falafel shop near the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Baghdad last week, and when told of the bungled training demonstration by the New York Times, Raad Hashim, who works at a liquor store near the site of

President Obama got angry at lawmakers who suggested in a private meeting that he should have armed the Syrian rebels, calling the criticism “horseshit.” The argument that America should have done more in Syria, made for years by foreign policy leaders in both parties and several members of Obama’s senior national security team, was brought back to the fore this past weekend.
