RCC doesn't receive tax monies, but your favorite organizations do, and your favored organizations receive a whole lot more government benefits too.
I am catholic, but that's not completely true.

1. The Vatican is a sovereign nation, the last remaining territory of the former Papal States. much of what is now Italy use to be part of the Papal States.

2. the Vatican is considered the world's longest running monarchy. It is both a religion and a nation.

3. Many nations around the world do indeed support their national church with tax dollars. the Roman Catholic Church is indeed a recipient of tax dollars and those nations. Protestant churches in northern European countries such as Sweden also receive tax dollars from the government.

4. The intertwining of church and state has a long history reaching back into antiquity. In fact, if you read one of my previous posts you will see that paganism was consider the religion of the Roman Empire and that Christians were accused of being athiests at one point.

<quoted text>Yet you have no problem blaming every clergyman in the Catholic Church for the actions of a few.
You're a sad little hypocrite, Eric
When has he ever done that? You create these narratives in your mind of what other people believe or what other people have said. They are based on your own imagination and embellishment and aren't accurate. You are a strange little man.

Now, let's suppose your allegation were true. You are defending your stereotyping of people based on their race by asserting another's stereotyping based on religion and then you call that person a hypocrite. Does that not, in turn, make you a hypocrite by your own definition?

I label based on culture, not skin color. You people just can't let go of the race card and you look ridiculous for it.

All of the black ones emigrated here after 1965?
Before 1965, very few third worlders were admitted to this country.

It was forced emigration, but it was emigration all the same, George. Unless you think that somebody planted slave seeds in the fields and THAT'S how the slaves got here.
They were a commodity. Economic assets are not immigrants.

One who comes to this country voluntarily as a free human being and is deemed qualified and acceptable by our government which follows existing immigration laws. Granted...they've warped that a lot lately...skinnies are not qualified by any means.

Pope Francis would be extremely unhappy with you for this one, George.
He may even be concerned about the state of your immortal soul.
Do your research. Your statement is not in keeping with Catholic teaching at all on so many fronts. You should start with Rerum Novarum.

I really don't think you should be identifying yourself as a Catholic any longer if you truly believe your statements, George.
You're not too bright, are you?

"The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) is a recent invention that grew out of the Second Vatican Council in the 1960s. Some Catholics confuse the USCCB as a teaching authority and mistaken it for a parallel magisterium.

Nowhere in Sacred Scripture and Tradition do we have an instance for this man made invention. We have one teaching authority and that is the Magisterium."
- See more at: http://the-american-catholic.com/2010/02/06/t...

Which brings us to this:

"Pope Benedict has called on immigrants to respect the laws and national identity of their host countries.
He said that every country had the right to regulate the flow of migration and immigrants had a duty to integrate."

Shall we talk about the culture of molestation in the public schools? That includes coverups and teacher transfers, too.

You forgot to include two important words: "treated as".

You're nothing but a disgusting bigot.
