His Excellency may be setting himself up for lots of criticism and comment, especially about the issue of church-state separation.

I doubt it. He's an individual.

No one complained when the nun spoke at the 2012 Democratic National convention in support of the Affordable Care Act.

.....and now the "bigot" card.

Superb.

Difference of thought/opinion gets the default "bigot" label.

You're one of these "inclusion and diversity" advocates, huh?

Wanting to limit someones rights based on a religious belief is UNCONSTITUTIONAL AND BIGOTRY.....Simple as that. I am one of those FREEDOM AND EQUALITY AND JUSTCIE FOR ALL PEOPLE.
Having and expressing religious beliefs is neither unconstitutional nor bigotry. The Bishop is a US citizen.

Informing one's political view with one's religious beliefs is neither unconstitutional nor bigotry. The Bishop is a US citizen.

Labeling someone who disagrees with you as a Nazi, KKK or bigot disregards the notion of freedom, equality and justice which you claim to support.

Churches don't author legislation, thus they cannot make their beliefs into law. That, indeed, would be unconstitutional.

Churches CAN support or oppose proposals if the issues intersect in matters of their faith. Their members are citizens, just as anyone else.

Churches often publicly support civil rights legislation, legislation sealing with social issues like poverty, etc. A nun spoke at the Democratic National Convention last year in support of the Affordable Care Act. Not a peep from anyone that she her appearance there nor speech given was "unconstitutional".

This Bishop has simply switched party registration and gave some reasons why he did it. Does he have to run his reasoning by you for your approval?

I'm an independent Catholic, parochial schools, the whole shabang. What I find interesting is it took him until 2012 to digest what others saw 40years ago.

I once had a local priest tell me that it was our duty to welcome the illegal aliens and treat them as our own..........sure I will. Thats why it's best to be independent.

You have no idea of his reasoning. You simply couldn't engage him in a discussion over it, so you fall back on boilerplate.

"SIMPLE AS THAT".

While they're entitled to what they believe RE: social issues like immigration, I typically don't take advice on what should be done with my tax money from people who live on handouts.

He's a Bishop of the Catholic Church, and believes what they teach and is responsible for upholding that teaching for the people under his pastoral care.

Are all who disagree with you consigned to being a "NAZI PIG"? I thought people had freedom and equal rights.

I said he has every right to his Nazi hate and bigotry. As long as he doesn't want laws or bans made to force his hate on others.
Religion and god figures is two of the worst inventions man ever created.
What other restrictions upon civic discourse and action would you impose upon your fellow citizens? In the name of freedom and equality for all, of course.

You don't want the Bishop to be able to state his political views publicly, or at least to do so without incurring your judgment and/or wrath.

I would cosign him to patriarchy exactly what he upholds along with the icon of a virgin mother subservient and submissive she does as directed and keeps her mouth shut. He joined the right crowd. Good riddance to him......bye bye.

The Catholic church and Christianity in general has been watered down and destroyed. Discipline has been eliminated in life and replaced with equality through groups and free sex with age boundaries. A void has been created now. The void will be filled with something else. Since people do not have the courage to live libertarian lifestyles without government payouts, totalitarian rule is our future. However, the progressives in their immigration practices of Caucasian wrongdoings in all of history have let many people into America from the middle east. Islam is gaining a foothold. People of Islam faith do not take crap from anyone. Our government greases the wheels of specific groups. This one. Christians protesting Islamic get togethers are attacked and called names like pussies and the rest here in America. It seems Islam can become a power with Sharia law being the way of living here. Many African Americans have converted as the discipline has given them a stronger personal life. Conversions are happening with others also. This does not bode well for the gay, feminism and other movements going forward. Up to now, law enforcement does not mess with them. Let us all monitor the situation. This will be fun to watch.

Thank you for admitting that christianity is nothing more than a sexual "discipline" system and nothing to do with spirituality. Equality is a real problem for patriarchy isn't it?

AND somehow you think Islam...another patriarchy system has a fighting chance?

YOU are fcking nuts. Not to mention a sexist, bigot and a paranoid schizo. Why are you so afraid of women and gays?

Why are so so afraid of not letting your neighbors have heir hard earned meager earnings? Cut the taxes, fees, fines, hidden costs in everything in half and we can talk. Everything must be subsidized to pay for others. And that includes inferiority. I don't write about what I want or hope to happen. I write in the direction we are headed. And that direction has multiple outcomes. All, not to nice. You just don't want to admit it because progressive politics has blessed you with "most favored group" status. Maybe representing a few of them.
