USCCB endorses May 1st walkout by illegal immigrants?????

Could it be true? The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), which by the way has no theological signifigance whatsoever and thus demands no obedience, has enacted an immigration program entitled Justice for Immigrants, which has its own website apart from the USCCB here. Now many may wish to strictly continue the immigration debate on this topic posted but I wish to address the USCCB on this matter. On the right side of the website there's a link box with a megaphone and the words "May 1st Suggested Activities." Here's the telling text you'll find if you follow the link:

Our collective efforts to influence the public policy debate over immigration reforms
received a boost from the recently held rallies across the country. Media coverage of
the April 10 rallies, in particular, was generally positive and depicted the movement for
what it is, “justice for immigrants.”
Many are turing their attention to May 1 as another opportunity to demonstrate
concern for immigrants and the need for comprehensive reforms in our nation's
immigration system.

So it would seem that the USCCB has given its blessing to mass protests by lawbreakers (yes, that's what they are) to demand rights that they aren't allowed because they are not citizens. So my question is will the he USCCB stand up for mass protests by child-molesting clergy or laity for the right to molest children? What's the connection? Both molesting children and coming across our borders without properly immigrating is illegal!
Is the USCCB selective in what laws can be broken and which ones can't? Has relativism creeped into the USCCB? No, our bishops are smarter than to base their argument on such an philosophically elementary mistake such as relativism. I hypothesize that this is about cash and Church attendance, here's why. According to the USCCB's Hispanic Affairs page, forty percent of American catholics are Hispanics. So rather than to offend almost half of the Catholics in the US, the USCCB has once again acquiesed to the culture, this time with respect to open borders and the "America is the cause of Mexico's poverty" mantra by La Raza and the Reconquista groups. Instead the USCCB should point the finger at the root cause of the immigration problem: the Mexican goverment's fostering of a culture of corruption and socialism which doesn't privatize lucratize industries like the state-run oil industry and the exporting of what could have been the Mexican middle-class to the US so that the Mexican gordos gatos can rake in all the US dollars that are sent back to Mexico.
Mexicans shouldn't have to uproot and leave their country! Why can't they earn a living in they're own country have pride in being able to build their country into something that's great? I'd like the USCCB to answer that. The answer would have to lead back to the Mexican goverment's plan to shove their problems off on the US while they shoot people who come across they're southern border with Guatemala. Here's Mexico's immigration policy. Too bad the USCCB won't notice. For every good bishop in this country there's always three more who spend their days at the country club. Oh here's a scripture verse that the bishops may have forgotten, its by St. Peter, ya know the first pope, so it really isn't that important:

Be subject to every human institution for the Lord's sake, whether it be to the king as
supreme or to governors as sent by him for the punishment of evildoers and the
approval of those who do good. (1 Peter 2:13-14)

Also I beleive someone named Jesus once said this too:

Show me the coin that pays the census tax." Then they handed him the Roman coin.
He said to them, "Whose image is this and whose inscription?" They replied, "Caesar's."
At that he said to them, "Then repay to Caesar what belongs to Caesar and to God what
belongs to God." When they heard this they were amazed, and leaving him they went
away. (Matthew 22:18-22)

Back with a new vision...

So I began this blog back in February wanting to give a no-holds-barred look at the news with a dash of facetiousness to satisfy the illusion that maybe the argument from the absurd would help people see past the b.s. of the finely marketed, p.c. delivery of the news, world events, etc. from the established media outlets. Soon after I began to think to myself, "You know, I should do my education in theology and philosophy justice by taking this personal endeavor a little more seriously." After all, the motto of Catholic theology is fides quaerens intellectum, or faith seeking understanding.
Therefore, after this short poderance I have decide to continue to cut through the b.s. while offering the truth about Catholic theology and the orthodox Catholic social view on all things I choose worthy and weighty enough to bother blogging about. The truth really is out there, but mostly its really in our face and we're too blind to see it because we put sentiment before right reason. So my advice to all you relativists out there...be afraid, be very afraid, because you just might realize that your entire world view is a self-defeating smoke screen simply used for will-to-power purposes.
