Catholic Charities Helps Illegal Alien Teen Get Abortion

June 24th, 2008

Say what?

So… not only is abortion against the moral principles BIG time in the Catholic religion, but it just also happens to have violated state and federal laws because it seems these charities get federal money to the tune of $7 MILLION to place illegal alien children in foster homes(?) until they are reunited with their families. I guess the Catholic Church will start having to rely on illegal aliens for essentially all of their income soon since real Americans should tell the Catholic Church to shove it up their ass in my opinion.

H/T to Kathleen Appell for sending me this story. Unbelievable!

Va. charity probed for helping teen get abortion

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Authorities are investigating whether a Catholic charity violated state and federal law by helping a 16-year-old illegal immigrant who was in the organization’s care get an abortion.

Workers with Commonwealth Catholic Charities helped the girl travel to and from the procedure in January and signed a consent form for the abortion, Joanne Nattrass, the charity’s executive director, said in a statement Thursday. She declined further comment.

Four of the Richmond-based charity’s workers were fired, according to a letter by David Siegel, head of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ refugee resettlement program.

The federal department is looking into the charity’s actions and the role played by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. The conference receives $7.6 million a year in federal funds to place unaccompanied illegal immigrant children in foster care until they’re reunited with relatives, sponsored, or returned to their homeland. The girl is from Guatemala but was living in Virginia when the abortion took place.

Federal law bans the use of federal money to pay for abortions with exceptions for rape, incest or threats to the life of the mother. Virginia law requires parental consent for an abortion for a girl under 18.

Commonwealth Catholic Charities serves children in the Richmond area as a subcontractor of the bishop’s conference. The conference “appears to have been aware of Commonwealth Catholic Charities’ actions,” Siegel wrote in his April 23 letter to HHS’ deputy inspector general, Timothy Menke.

In a letter nearly a week later, the conference acknowledged some responsibility for the incident and said it has revised agreements with the more than 1,700 Catholic Charities offices nationwide to explicitly bar services that contradict Catholic teachings. Catholics are strongly opposed to abortion, and it isn’t clear why the organization assisted the teen.

“There were significant supervisory errors that resulted in a failure to do everything possible to avoid the abortion,” said the letter, signed by Bishops Francis X. DiLorenzo of the Richmond diocese; John C. Wester of the Salt Lake City diocese; and Michael P. Driscoll of the Boise, Idaho diocese. All have some link to the youth resettlement program.

Federal officials were surprised and disappointed that the Catholic charity used funding to help a minor get an abortion, said Kenneth Wolfe, a spokesman for the Administration for Children and Families in HHS.

“That is at odds with federal policy and is a possible violation of Virginia state law, so we have referred this case to HHS’ inspector general,” Wolfe said in a statement. “Our agency is one that supports human life and we take that responsibility seriously.”

Sanctuary churches are illegal in the eyes of God

October 7th, 2007

From Gotquestions.org:

Question: “Do Christians have to obey the laws of the land?”

Answer: Romans 13:1-7 states: “Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Consequently, he who rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves. For rulers hold no terror for those who do right, but for those who do wrong. Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority? Then do what is right and he will commend you. For he is God’s servant to do you good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword for nothing. He is God’s servant, an agent of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer. Therefore, it is necessary to submit to the authorities, not only because of possible punishment but also because of conscience. This is also why you pay taxes, for the authorities are God’s servants, who give their full time to governing. Give everyone what you owe him: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor.”

That passage makes it abundantly clear. We are to obey the government God places over us. God created government to establish order, punish evil, and promote justice (Genesis 9:6; 1 Corinthians 14:33; Romans 12:8). We are to obey the government in everything - paying taxes, obeying rules and laws, showing respect, etc. If we do not, we are ultimately showing disrespect towards God, for He is the One who placed that government over us. When the Apostle Paul wrote Romans 13:1-7, he was under the government of Rome, during the reign of Nero, perhaps that most evil of all the Roman Emperors. Paul still recognized that government’s rule over him. How can we do any less?

The next question is: “Is there a time when we should not obey the laws of the land?” The answer to that question may be found in Acts 5:27-29, “Having brought the apostles, they made them appear before the Sanhedrin to be questioned by the high priest. ‘We gave you strict orders not to teach in this Name,’ he said. ‘Yet you have filled Jerusalem with your teaching and are determined to make us guilty of this man’s blood.’ Peter and the other apostles replied: ‘We must obey God rather than men!’” From this, we can plainly see that as long as the law of the land does not contradict the law of God, we are bound to obey. As soon as the law of the land contradicts God’s command, we are to disobey the law of the land, and obey God’s law. However, even in that instance, we are to accept the government’s authority over us. This is demonstrated by the fact that Peter and John did not protest being flogged, but instead rejoiced that they suffered for obeying God (Acts 5:40-42).

Here is a good comment on the topic over at topix.com

If you have studied the bible and ALL you got from there is that God says don’t break the law…you need to go back and re-read it,Ask God for the answers and he will provide them for you, because God loves all of us, and if there is something to be learned from the bible is not to judge and to treat every single being with love and respect.

AquarianRealm responds:

Yes, the Bible says many things, so it we take and accept from it we must love and respect each other, must we also accept states on other issues, i.e., illegal immigration? Question: “How does God view illegal immigration?”
Answer: Romans 13:1-7 makes it abundantly clear that God expects us to obey the laws of the government. The ONLY exception to this is when a law of the government forces you to disobey a command of God (Acts 5:29). Illegal immigration is the breaking of a governmental law. There is nothing in Scripture that would contradict with obeying immigration laws. Therefore, it is a sin, rebellion against God, to illegally immigrate into another country. Romans 13:1-7 also gives the government the authority to punish lawbreakers, whether it be by deportation or imprisonment (in the cases of illegal immigration), or more severe penalties for greater crimes.
The vast majority of illegal immigrants in the United States have immigrated for the purpose of having a better life, providing for their families, and escaping from poverty. These are good goals and motivations. However, these reasons do not give a person the right to break a law. Those seeking to immigrate to the United States (or any other country), should obey the immigration laws of that country. While this will cause delays and frustrations, again, these reasons do not give a person the right to break a law.

What should the United States government do with all the illegal immigrants that are currently in the country? For the most part, this is not a Biblical question. The Bible does not command how governments should respond to every type of illegal action. The United States government has the right and authority to do as it sees fit, whether that be deporting millions of people, or granting them amnesty. Deporting millions of people is likely not a reasonable, or workable policy. At the same time, mass amnesty is completely unfair to those who are respecting the laws of our country by “waiting in line” to immigrate to the United States.

So, to all the churches who are joining this inane “sanctuary movement” - you have strayed from the path of God by doing so and personally I don’t think a church should be advocating breaking the law in any case whatsoever. If the churches want to help illegal aliens out by giving them a meal or shelter from the elements that is fine as long as the next thing they do is send them home where they belong and that home should be the country they came from.

I differ in opinion from AquarianRealm in that I believe millions of illegal aliens will “self-deport” when the job and social services magnets are removed. I believe our current immigration system is just fine and is not really all that backlogged because - well - we admit more immigrants into this country every year than the rest of the countries of the world combined.. so .. no .. I don’t think we need to speed anything up at all. In fact, as much as I think highly of legal immigrants and I have many friends who are legal immigrants.. I don’t see the need to *increase* immigration. We need to stop and figure out what we are doing as a country letting over 2 million immigrants in per year. We are losing our cultural identity and increasing our risk of terrorist attacks by courting “cultural diversity” to the point of our own cultural extinction. Not very smart.

Cardinal Mahony caught covering up for Mexican child abuser priest

September 12th, 2007

What? A “ranking” member of the Catholic church covering up for pedophiles? Now there’s a shocker eh? Not only does Cardinal Mahony cover up for pedophiles but he also supports the invasion of this country by third world Mexican illegal aliens.. I’m not sure why anyone still believes in the Catholic church these days.. Personally, I think any who do are complete sheep and deserve the country they are creating by supporting such a traitorous institution.

Group: Mexican Cardinal knew of abuse

By JESSICA BERNSTEIN-WAX, Associated Press Writer 1 hour, 45 minutes ago

MEXICO CITY - A victims’ group said Tuesday that newly released documents support its claim that Mexico’s most prominent cardinal knew a Mexican priest was suspected of molesting children but transferred him to the United States anyway.

The group, Survivor’s Network of Those Abused by Priests, or SNAP, made public written correspondence between Mexico City Cardinal Norberto Rivera and Los Angeles Cardinal Roger Mahony. It also released a 1986 Mexican police report in which witnesses alleged the suspect spent the night with young boys while working as a priest in the central state of Puebla.

The documents were filed as part of Rivera’s defense in a lawsuit against him in Los Angeles Superior Court that alleges he and Mahony conspired to protect the suspect, the Rev. Nicolas Aguilar. It wasn’t immediately known why the documents were filed by the defense, but it could be because they suggest Rivera warned Mahony.

*snip*

In the lawsuit filed against Rivera, Aguilar Mendez says Aguilar raped him in Mexico City in 1994. Aguilar Mendez was 12 years old at the time of the alleged crime.

Earlier, in 1988, Aguilar spent nine months working in Los Angeles, where he was later charged with 19 felony counts of committing lewd acts on a child. After returning to Mexico, Aguilar continued working as a priest for years despite attempts to extradite him to the United States.

The suit charges Rivera and Mahony with negligence, intentional infliction of emotional distress, civil conspiracy and sexual battery. Aguilar is accused of sexual battery.

*snip*
The newly released documents include a letter Rivera sent Mahony in January 1987, just five months after the police report was filed in Puebla.

In the letter, Rivera said Aguilar wanted to be transferred to Los Angeles because of “personal and health reasons.” The cardinal, then a bishop in Puebla, added that there was no reason why Mahony should not grant the transfer.

Also among the documents was a missing letter Rivera wrote Mahony in 1987 referring to Aguilar’s “problems of homosexuality.” Mahony has said he did not receive the letter before approving Aguilar’s transfer and requested it in later correspondence, although Rivera has maintained it was sent in 1987.

According to Barragan, Mahony did not receive a copy of the letter until 2004.

“We know the mail in Mexico is bad, but the idea that it would take a letter 17 years to arrive is absurd,” Aguilar Mendez said.
