"The manner in which we express our religion is not exactly the same as the Anglo culture does it.... So as we work to integrate into one church, we must continue to work together to bring about one church, which is what we're after."

What does that mean? Latino Catholics aren't the same as White Catholics? That's ridiculus. The Church is the Church, same rules and traditions for all.

As long as the Catholic church doesn't poke its nose into the 12 to 20 million illegal alien simmering issue, they have the respect of all in America. However, if their hierarchy start demanding equal rights for illegal poor, uneducated that our government is subsidizing in our nation. then anti-illegal patriots groups may be aggressive in a demanding in rescinding the tax exempt status for any religious entity who steps over the mark. Voters can find out the raw truth about the illegal immigration occupation, should visit NUMBERSUSA.
WE NEED THE FEDERAL SAVE ACT, to stop employers from hiring cheap illegal labor. In addition, sign the PETITION at GRASSFIRE, to halt Democrats from gutting the BORDER FENCE.
Hypocrisy and the RCC

My question to Benny would be how he would justify the wages/salaries paid to those who work for the RCC while the cardinals, bishops and priests live lives fit for a king. Those unfortunate individuals (especially the teachers)work for wages that are a notch below what illegal migrants earn and yet the church justifies this. And who is out front always ranting and raving that all employers pay their employees a "justified wage". The RCC of course! The hypocrisy never ceases in that religion. Their arrogance is stunning!

What it means is that most white catholics don't really believe in God or the teachings of their so-called faith. Latino catholics on the other hand are mostly ignorant peasants who replaced the superstitions of their earlier animist religion with the superstitions of the later catholic one.
Well, I'm white and I firmly believe in God. I don't agree with some of the 'teachings' of the Church, but God has a good sense of humor and those who don't do what they are supposed to do will get what's coming to them eventually. And my latino friends are not ignorant peasants...you must be in a time warp of hundreds of years ago.
