Kamikaze Catholics

Galliawatch links to a couple of interesting videos featuring Jean-Michel di Falco, Bishop of the diocese of Gap & d’Embrun in Provence.

The videos are in French, but tiberge kindly provides an English translation.

Bishop di Falco describes himself as a fourth generation immigrant from Italy to France, and still remembers being called a “spaghetti.” (I guess that’s his claim to Holy Victimhood.)

Oh, and it seems he also got called a “toad” at some point or other.

Anyway, he simply loves Muslim immigrants and is deeply disturbed by the fact that others don’t: “the rejection of the Other, when he is different or comes from a foreign land, worries us. Often fear or violence are the consequences. Some even feel they are no longer welcome…”

Later, he continues:

“…Criticism from people who do not share our faith is understandable. But when it comes from Christians, those who read the Bible, sometimes even clergy, then I am surprised. It would be betraying Christ not to proclaim over and over again today his message of love for all, without discrimination of any sort.”

Amazing.

There are ordained Bishops of the Holy Roman Catholic & Apostolic Church, today, who believe that the message of Jesus of Nazareth was “love for all, without discrimination of any sort” – and who are “surprised” to learn that “those who read the Bible” might think otherwise.

I mean, whoah. What can one say?

  1. I’m Catholic, I read my Bible, and I don’t see anything in the Scriptures that forbids any government from restricting immigration from lands whose natives can’t fit into our racial identity or way of life.

    • “I don’t see anything in the Scriptures that forbids any government from restricting immigration”

      The Roman Catholic church disagrees with you. Roman Catholic leaders in the USA and France support the invaders. The Roman Catholic church supports the destruction of European caucasian societies. The only thing that matters to them is that the people in the USA or France be Roman Catholic. If France is filled with black and vietnamese roman catholics, then everything is FANTASTIC to those roman catholic leaders.

      • Craig, I’m well aware that leaders in the Church disagree with me. These leaders are getting into areas where they’re not competent to pronounce judgement or give advice or they’re deliberately ignoring the Holy Scriptures. The Mosaic law has several laws concerning foreigners and immigrants. None of those laws allowed easy, mass immigration like too many of our benighted Protestant, Jewish, or Catholic clergy want today.

      • The irony is that these “conservative Hispanic Catholics” will be mostly evangelicals or secular within 3 generations max. The worst part is this hispandering will alienate the churches white core so it’s a double lose suicide policy.

  2. As a long-lapsed Catholic, I sometimes remind myself of the reasons I left.

    And I remember the moment – when JPII was in Africa, in the early 1980s, he informed the people that even the simple act of avoiding sex, absent all contraception, if it was done to avoid pregnancy, constituted a sin. It truly made me wonder what goofy world I’d been raised in.

    Subsequent events, from subsequent members of the church hierarchy, including those related above, convince me that the rank stupidity that drove me away from the church was childs’ play compared to the inanities of today’s Catholicism.

  3. Al is correct. The Catholic hierarchs and the Protestants who hope to sheep steal from the Catholics are in for a rude awakening. Most of the immigrants who are crossing the border are doing it for materialistic reasons. If they convert to any kind of Protestantism, it’s because they believe they will move up the financial latter. So, it’s no surprise they abandon religion and secularize in the 3rd generation

    • @Stephen – yes, this is simple math. The Catholic Church’s ranks show a significant lag between US Latino immigration and growth in Catholic congregations.

      But, no question, a lot of parishes are going to get “browner,” as will a lot of Protestant churches.

      I think a not-so-secret secret in the Roman Church these days is the parishes are segregating. I don’t know this, but from some anecdotal observations, I believe a lot of Anglo-European Catholics are buying out whole neighborhoods around certain parishes. I don’t think it’s pursuant to a deliberate plan. Yet.

  4. Hasn’t that always been the case?

    There were Polish Roman Catholic parishes, and Croatian parishes, and Italian parishes, and Irish parishes, etc.

  5. The Catholic Church is totally PC. If the US Catholic Bishops release a paper on a social or economic topic, I could write it verbatim without reading it. They are very predictable

  6. Criticism from people who do not share our faith is understandable. But when it comes from Christians, those who read the Bible, sometimes even clergy, then I am surprised. It would be betraying Christ not to proclaim over and over again today his message of love for all, without discrimination of any sort.”

    This argument could be applied to queer marriage as well. Jesus didn’t say he was against queer marriage. Aren’t queer people in love when they want to get married.

    Allowing people to form and maintain communities of their choosing (and by extension, nations of their choosing) is better for the society as a whole. Never before have people felt so alienated and loss of community is the number one reason. Diversity results in loss of community.

    Freedom of association should be a basic human right.
