Where Mundabor Helps US Bishops To Find The Words
Archbishop Gomez of Los Angeles and others are all in a fluffer, terrified at what a father should say to his son asking him whether he will have to leave the Country.
Typically for our bishops and other leftist, a stupidly emotional argument (which isn't one) is made. Do convicted criminals never have to answer questions about whether they will go to jail? What does Archbishop Gomez think of what a murderer will say to his son? The child of a murderer is just as innocent as the child of an illegal alien.
However, in my goodness I think I should help the archbishop, and suggest some talking point he might convey to his illegal sheep.
Yes, dear boy. Your father may well be deported. And if not, it will not be because of some special merit of his. Your father made something illegal, and he knew that the punishment for that might come at some point. He has raised you in a climate of illegality, and now legality is catching up with him, and the chicken are coming home to roost. It is better for you to learn at a young age that there still are situations in which crime does not pay, or rather stopped paying after a very long while. It is better for you to learn at a young age that the expression “law abiding citizen” isn't an empty word, and your father isn't one of those citizen. It is better for you to learn as a child that crime may result in punishment. It would be very difficult for you to learn integrity and fear of the Lord if you were to grow in an atmosphere of permanent illegality. It truly is morality 1-0-1, but nowadays archbishops don't do morality, merely effeminate claptrap.
If your pa is deported, will it cause you to suffer? Of course it will. If your father had been jailed, this would also have caused you to suffer. But this is certainly not a reason to avoid putting him in jail. The sins of the fathers shall be visited upon the sons. This too, my boy, you had better learn fast. It's uncomfortable, but salutary. Just like all the other things the Archbishop does not say.
There. It wasn't difficult. It's the same reasoning applied in, actually, every circumstance. It's a matter of common sense and elementary justice. It has to do with basic integrity. Poverty has never been an excuse or an exemption from the duty of being honest and law abiding.
If, dear reader, this seems harsh and unjust to you, it means that you are already so accustomed to a culture of illegality, that legality sounds shockingly hard to you. No, it's not a compliment. I come from a Country where this culture of illegality has done enough damage already. It must be stopped, and not only in the USA.
The Archbishop is, like all those who spread the same inclusiveness rubbish, either astonishingly naive or dangerously disingenuous.
I have the impression that the age of stupidity is about to be challenged. In the USA and in Europe alike. Our elected representatives have treated us like children in need of a nanny for too long. One day, history might decide that illegal immigration (on both side of the Pond) was the biggest single issue that caused Western voters to wake up.
Make Europe great again.
