Render Unto Caesar?

Yet another area where Catholic bishops are out of step with their flock. Instead of sticking to immigrant policy – i.e., insisting, rightly, that we always treat foreigners as fellow children of God – the bishops are dabbling in immigration policy, arguing that illegal alien amnesties and open immigration are religious imperatives. The upshot of their critique is a rejection of the authority of the State in matters of immigration. It would appear that the bishops really are, as Fr. Neuhaus once suggested, “the religious lobby of the Democratic Party.”
