U.S. Council of Bishops Incredulous Response to Steve Bannon’s ’60 Minutes’ Interview

Former White House chief strategist, Stephen K. Bannon set the viral world on fire with his interview with CBS's 60 Minutes last Sunday.

60 Minutes host, Charlie Rose, tried to trick Bannon use a ridiculous empty premise that instead showcased Rose's own ignorance of the Church.

Rose: Can I remind you, a good Catholic, that Cardinal [Timothy] Dolan is opposed to what’s happened with DACA? Cardinal Dolan.

Bannon: The Catholic Church has been terrible about this. … The bishops have been terrible about this …  Because [they’re] unable to really come to grips with the problems in the church, they need illegal aliens, they need illegal aliens to fill the churches. … They have – they have an economic interest. They have an economic interest in unlimited immigration, unlimited illegal immigration.

Rose:  Boy, that’s a tough thing to say about your church.

Bannon: As much as I respect Cardinal Dolan and the bishops on doctrine, this is not doctrine.

Bannon is 100% correct. The Catholic Church under Jorge Bergoglio has abandoned actual doctrine, supported by the scriptures, in favor of a Unitarian based approach that forces liberal policies.

The Bishops of Doctrine here in the U.S. quickly issued a letter in response to Bannon's statement trying to make themselves seem less ignorant of their own Bibles and fraudulent faith.

Now on the surface, the odd mash-up of Bible verses presented gives the illusion of doctrinal validity. But, it is rubbish to anyone who has actually read or studied the Christian/Judaic scriptures.

The Old Testament represents the law. There is a reason Jesus came to earth and died on a cross, ACCORDING TO THE BIBLE. Jesus came to earth to literally tear down the veil in the temple with his death separating the common man and woman from having a personal relationship with God.

Verses such as Leviticus 19:33, and the rules of the Old Testament do not represent the spiritual guidelines for a personal relationship with God as fascinated through the birth and death of Jesus in the New Testament.

The Catholic Church claims to believe in Jesus. As such, pulling out verses from the Old Testament under ancient legalistic laws is absurd. Such logic is akin to a police officer or layman insisting everyone today should be locked up for possessing moonshine because there was a brief prohibition law 15o years ago.

Furthermore to suggest that the verses from the New Testament have anything to do with DACA is ridiculous. I'm quite certain ICE feeds the illegal immigrants at large being held in detention centers.

That sufficiently covers Matthew 25, “for I was hungry and you gave me food”. Does it not?

None of these cherries picked Bible verses can as much as lend an ounce of credence to the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishop's stance on DACA and illegal aliens at large.

Bannon wasn't just right when he pointed out the Bishops of Doctrine had abandoned true faith, and scriptural doctrine, he was also right that the Catholic Church ignores real compassion in favor of blindly following fad liberal agendas.

It is very easy to call for the legalizing of 800,000 or two million or 11 million or 25 million illegal immigrants when you will only personally benefit from these policies, both through fuller pews and the love of the mainstream media. The problem  with this thinking is that it shows ZERO compassion for the victims of this sort of immigration policy — you know, those who lose their jobs to illegals, those whose wages are lowered by a flood of cheap labor, those whose children cannot get a decent education due to classrooms burdened with illegal children who cannot speak English. Good heavens, where to begin with the wave of crime these illegals have brought with them?

Now I don't think ALL illegal aliens are violent criminals or that they're all necessarily bad people. I feel for those displaced by war and poverty. However, I also have the ability to think and be realistic. Laws are in place for a reason. Societies collapse without strong borders and adherence to the laws of the land.

Illegal immigration signifies a slippery slope – it is a trap. What is really going on is an attempt to trick the populous into believing laws are only to be followed if they make you feel good, if it's easy.

Today we give up or safety and legal protections to help the poor – what will tomorrow be? Think about who came up with the idea of open borders and illegal immigration – the global elite. What makes you think they all of a sudden did a complete 180 and now have the interests of the poor, displaced, or common man on the forefront of their agendas? Grow-up. This isn't good, and you should already know that.
