Catholic leader: Help illegal aliens

LOS ANGELES, March 1 (UPI) -- Los Angeles' archbishop has called on the country's Catholics to mark the Lenten season by speaking out against current immigration reform plans.

Cardinal Roger M. Mahoney of the Los Angeles Archdiocese -- the largest in the United States -- called anti-immigration sentiment in the country "hysterical" in an interview with the Los Angeles Times.

He criticized various anti-immigration groups and the current legislation in Congress that he calls inhumane.

Passed by the House and being debated in the Senate, the two immigration bills propose sanctions on religious and social organizations who give charity to illegal immigrants.

Mahoney called on priests to ignore the law if passed.

OK. I'm Catholic, and I generally support the Church, but this fool is off his rocker. The Catholic Church in the US has enough problems with a number of issues, but they choose to ignore their own shortcomings, and concentrate on something that is none of their damn business.

If this is the way the Catholic Church wants to go down in flames, so be it. Buncha freakin' wankers.
