I Couldn't Resist

I had to send an e-mail to the person who's leftist post is in the post below:

Dear Mr. Waldrop:

As a public high school teacher in Southern California I try to avail myself of the many sources on the internet for the issues that arise in my social studies classes. I read with interest your recent post on "The War on Immigrants."

As a Catholic and Fourth Degree member of the Knights of the Columbus, I, too am against policies that might lead to more abortions. Unfortunately, your claim that immigration policies that will stem the flow of illegal immigrants into our country will result in more abortions because the policy will create more economic stress on the immigrants simply does not make any sense.

The problem is one of simple supply and demand. Since the supply of low-wage immigrant workers is increasing and far outstrips the demand for said labor, simple market forces cause the wages paid to fall. A recent issue of Time magazine had a cover story that addressed this very topic. As such, migrants, legal or not, are seeing the wages they receive drop which increases their economic stress.

I have serious misgivings about many of your conclusions for which you provide no real world evidence to support. I am also concerned that a Catholic organization such as yours (which seems to be doing God's work in helping the poor in tangible ways in Oklahoma) would seem to be on the same side as the atheistic communists who are pulling the strings in the organization of these events ( Additionally, I believe if you make careful study of Gramscian-Marxism (Antonio Gramsci), you will see that your positions put you on the side of the multiculturalists who wish to tear down the positive remnants of Western civilization that very much includes the Holy Roman Catholic Church (a simple Google search of "gramscian marxism" will set you on your way).

Your post also ignores the comprehensive nature of the Catholic Catechism as it relates to immigration which states:

"2241 The more prosperous nations are obliged, to the extent they are able, to welcome the foreigner in search of the security and the means of livelihood which he cannot find in his country of origin. Public authorities should see to it that the natural right is respected that places a guest under the protection of those who receive him.

Political authorities, for the sake of the common good for which they are responsible, may make the exercise of the right to immigrate subject to various juridical conditions, especially with regard to the immigrants' duties toward their country of adoption. Immigrants are obliged to respect with gratitude the material and spiritual heritage of the country that receives them, to obey its laws and to assist in carrying civic burdens. (emphasis added)."

Given the number of immigrants who have flooded the country since the change in immigration laws in the 1960s, it seems America has done quite a bit to welcome them including offering free schooling, emergency health care, welfare benefits, etc. The open border policy spouted by the communists directly contradicts the italicized portion above.

I prayerfully hope that you will reconsider you association with Marxist philosophy whether intentional or not. I also pray that you will continue your good works in Oklahoma tending to the needs of the least of our brothers.

Vivat Jesus!
