excuse me but i have been here all my life, i was born, baptized, confirmed catholic,i have served in the church at many levels, it shames me to see where the church is going, im very sorry to even think this way , but i see the catholic churches here in this county catered to the hispanic population, in very sorry but this was our churches, the churches my grand parents, parents and family were wed, and buried, only to sit now and watch the priests shoved to us of hispanic decent,we cant even understand the sermons any more as the ptiests cant speak english to well,our familys have nowstop the donations we used to give openly, it very unsettling to see our church and religion over ran the way it is, segregation within , we havehad a english speaking and praiyng churches here for over hundred plus years, our famliy names on the walls and windows, and now to watch it be taken over and split in two. white and spanish, and the spanish win, the old family donations and functions to raise money are always manned and headed by the whites but the spanish exhaust any and all resouces of the union county catholic churches, according to both the anna and cobden boards the money taken in from the spanish at any and all spanish mass donations are veryvery limited, but yet they are the same group pulling and tugging at all the free goods and services, i truly try to be a true christian and feel everyone is equal, but its so hard when you see what your grand parents, great grand parents and fathers and mothers worked so hard for , taken over by others who move in , again may god forgiveme for my thoughts but i speak the truth, the membership of the white family memberships had dropped and still drops, for this very reason,if you have a religion and come here , then you must abide and you must conform to the waysand religions as they are,,, as the established families who have sweat, blood, and tears built it. not conform to them, i surely hope this reaches the eyes of the bishops and popes,
because if it doesnt reach thier eyes im sure the lack of donations and nebership will get thier attention,, anmen

No, you are right. It's disgusting. I've lived in California and these "hard working hispanics" would stab you in the back without even thinking about just for a couple bucks. Ya, they joke around and act like your friend but they don't give a sh*t about America or our values. The service should be in English only and the orchards should go out of business, they caused this mess. Now they've ruined Cobden and Alto pass along with the states of CA, AZ, NM, TX, OR, WA, NE, KS and now parts of the midwest and south. Goodbye America, hello 3rd world Mexico.

Bigots. There is nothing wrong with it. You know as well as I do that the population of American Catholics is dwindling, so the Mexicans coming in is a good thing.

"Ashamed," if you are the Christian you claim to be, you would be accepting of all individuals, not just those who are of the same ethnic origin as you. You call yourself "Ashamed," I think God and our church leaders would be ashamed of you.
