Breathtaking cruelty that is painful to watch.
Really? You can shut your border to Christians fleeing savages and sleep at night?
You know what is striking?
Where is Cardinal O'Malley and Pope Francis who are always praising their own "concern" for immigrants?
Why wouldn't he say something publicly about Turkey's cruelty and publicly beg them to temporarily take fleeing Christians with promises to rescue and bring them to America?
Why wouldn't he fly over there and pass out Communion at the border? These are the people who need it.
Do you remember Cardinal O'Malley's publicity stunt?
He flew to the border of a country where the Catholic religion is alive and well and passed the Blessed Sacraments through the gates so the photographers they brought could snap pictures of them doing it.
Why didn't he fly over the border to any of the thriving Churches in Mexico, including the Shrine of Guadalupe and say a Mass?
Catholicism is not oppressed in Mexico. Savages are not slaughtering our brothers and sisters. Mexicans are free to apply to Immigration. There is a process in place which my grandparents used or I would be writing from Waterford and Dublin.
The borders of Syria is where that publicity stunt would be meaningful.
Why isn't Pope Francis making public statements begging Turkey to shelter fleeing Christians?
Couldn't they take a break from their vigilant work spinning and weaving virtue into adultery and sodomy and help our brothers and sisters?
Why wouldn't they make their phone calls to Obama like they did in their work with the communists in Cuba and beg him to do something meaningful?
Why isn't the USCCB calling an emergency meeting and organizing something to pressure Turkey?
I can't stop thinking about these families, how terrified they must be to experience unspeakable cruelty of the crusaders of the religion of peace, to know they can do nothing to save their children and will most likely witness their massacres, hear their cries for help, before their own death. Knowing the bishops and pope are working on pastoral policies making virtue out of adultery and sodomy.
I am beside myself at their priorities and their deafening and craven silence.
