It's time the Church take a bold stand against illegal immigration. After all, what is one major way people here illegally are able to carry on in life, have jobs, send their kids to Harvard, and make a living for them and their relatives back home? Fraudulent documentation. That is, in other words, fake or false documents - lies you might say.
Mark Shea builds a strong case for why the Church should say enough is enough. Not that we shouldn't reform our immigration system. Something like that should always be reformed, since situations and conditions always change. But the idea that just because the system is broken, people are free to be fraudulent, lie, present false documentation and any other form of deception.
Lying is a sin, as Mark boldly proclaims. It's time for the Church and faithful Catholics to stop justifying, excusing and tolerating a culture of lies that justifies law breaking and fraud, even if it's one celebrated and advocated by the modern Left.
