John Zmirak emailed us to point out that, tomorrow night, Seton Hall University in South Orange, New Jersey is having a lecture intended to show that Catholic doctrine requires support for the Open Borders Agenda. As an American Catholic patriot, Zmirak doesn't agree, and asks if, since "all welcome to attend, and the event is free of charge" anyone of our readers wants to go and ask some tough questions during question period.
The Center for Catholic Studies and the Micah Institute for Business and Economics’ Fall 2011 Lecture, entitled And You Welcomed Me: Catholic Teaching, Immigrants and US Immigration Policy, will be presented October 27 at 5:30 p.m. in the Helen Lerner Amphitheatre in McNulty Hall at Seton Hall University. All are welcome to attend, and the event is free of charge.
The lecture and discussion will be presented by Donald Kerwin, Executive Director of the Center for Migration Studies, and Jill Gershutz-Bell, Senior Legislative Specialist for Washington, D.C.’s Catholic Relief Services, who co-authored And You Welcomed Me: Migration and Catholic Social Teaching (Lexington Press, 2009), as well as Fr. Jack Martin of the Haiti Solidarity Network of the Northeast.
About the Lecture
“When an alien resides with you in your land, you shall not oppress the alien. The alien who resides with you shall be to you as the citizen among you; you shall love the alien as yourself, for you were once aliens in the land of Egypt.” (Leviticus 19:33-34)[More]
Leviticus 19:33-34 gets a lot of attention in the immigration theology world. See Chilton Williamson's A Practicing Catholic Considers Why "The Church" Is Wrong About Immigration, or Zmirak's Christmas Meditation 2002: Christ, The "Other", And Counterfeit Citizens for a different view.
