Cliff Kincaid, Director of the AIM Center for Investigative Journalism, has published an excellent review of the Sanctuary movement, the Catholic Church’s love affair with Communist Sandinista’s, Obama’s early community organizing days (for a Catholic organization in Chicago) and Jim Simpson’s new monograph: Red-Green Axis!
We wrote many posts a few years ago about the 1980’s Sanctuary Movement, see those by clicking here.
Also, I’ve linked the border invasion of the ‘Unaccompanied Alien Children’ last year to the modern-day sanctuary movement.
Here is Kincaid (The Religious Origins of the Sanctuary Movement) Hat tip: Robin.
Thanks to Donald Trump, the major media are being forced to cover the illegal immigration movement, such as the proliferation of “sanctuary cities” across the U.S. that attract criminal aliens, give them legal protection, and let them back out on the streets to commit more crimes. But the really taboo topic is how these sanctuary cities grew out of a movement started by the Catholic Church and other churches.
Over 200 cities, counties and states provide safe-haven to illegal aliens as sanctuary cities, the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) reports. What has not yet been reported is that the Catholic Church, which gave President Obama his start in “community organizing” in Chicago, has been promoting the sanctuary movement for more than two decades.
What’s more, in April, a delegation of U.S. Catholic bishops staged a church service along the U.S.-Mexico border and distributed Communion through the border fence. At the same time, Pope Francis said a “racist and xenophobic” attitude was keeping immigrants out of the United States.
No wonder the pope’s approval ratings have been falling in the United States. Overall, Gallup reports that it’s now at 59 percent, down from 76 percent in early 2014. Among conservatives, it’s fallen from 72 percent approval to 45 percent (a drop of 27 points).
“Few people are aware that this extreme left branch of the Catholic Church played a large part in birthing the sanctuary movement,” says James Simpson, author of the new book, The Red-Green Axis: Refugees, Immigration and the Agenda to Erase America.
Simpson says Catholic Charities, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, and its grant-making arm, the Catholic Campaign for Human Development, are prominent elements of the open borders movement.
The sanctuary movement has its roots in the attempted communist takeover of Latin America.
There is much much more, click here for more juicy information!
New readers, please note that the US Conference of Catholic Bishops is one of nine federal contractors resettling refugees in your towns and cities (on your dime!).
I’m going to have more on the suspicious activities of the USCCB tomorrow…..
