English Catholics Urge Vatican to “Tear up” Deal with Communist China

Published

According to LifeSite News, a number of English Catholics, which includes Deacon Nick Donnelly and frequent LifeSite contributor Dr. Joseph Shaw, have signed on to an open letter demanding that the Vatican’s deal with China be “torn up.”

“We the undersigned are writing to express our burning anxiety at the Vatican’s treaty with the People’s Republic of China (PRC) in the light of the China Tribunal’s findings into forced organ harvesting,” the letter published in the Catholic Herald started off with.

The China Tribunal, a human rights group based in London, informed the U.N. Human Rights Council in September 2019 that China harvests skin, kidneys, lungs, and hearts from members of persecuted religious groups, such as the Falun Gong and Uighur Muslims.

“With burning anxiety was the title of Pope Pius XI’s encyclical Mit brennender Sorge protesting the inhumanities of the Nazis regime,” he remarked.

The letter highlights the “[w]idespread accounts of rape and torture” committed in the Chinese government’s state-run program of forced organ-harvesting from prisoners of conscience. In addition, it calls attention to how the government also “harasses and detains leading Catholic clergy and destroys Catholic shrines and churches which refuse to join the official ‘Patriotic Church.’”

“Despite these recent and present human rights abuses, some Vatican representatives have shamed their office and their Christian profession in their responses to concerns about the Holy See’s 22nd September 2018 provisional agreement with the PRC,” the letter declared.

“In 2018, Bishop Marcelo Sánchez Sorondo, the head of the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences, asserted that the Chinese government had ‘accomplished the reform of the organ donation system’ and even went on to claim that ‘those who are best implementing the social doctrine of the Church are the Chinese.’”

The details of The Vatican-China agreement, which was signed in September 2018, has yet to be publicized. However, many Vatican-observers believe it would allow Chinese communist leaders to handpick bishops who will then receive the pope’s approval, which goes against Catholic teachings.

Last August, the Vatican confirmed the consecration of the first Chinese bishop in the aftermath of the controversial deal. On March 6, 2020, Pope Francis urged Chinese Catholics in the Communist country to be “good citizens” and not partake in “proselytism.”

The signatories of this letter declared that it is a “scandal” that Cardinal Zen, the retired bishop of Hong Kong, has not even seen a copy of the agreement.

“The time has come for the Vatican to rescind its treaty with the PRC and by so doing stand in forthright solidarity with all victims of totalitarian oppression,” the letter concluded.

Biden’s Open Border Policies are a Magnet for Incoming Central American Caravans

The mother of all caravans is coming

Some things are simply too predictable.  According to Ben Wildon of SaraCarter.com, a new migrant caravan from Central America is quickly forming, and it’s heading northward to the U.S.

Incoming President Joe Biden’s lax immigration policies have become a magnet for migrants who desire entering the U.S. illegally. They know very well that Biden will not drop the hammer when they illegally enter the country. Up to 9,000 migrants have apparently been making their way to the U.S. At least 1,000 of those migrants illegally entered Guatemala on January 15, 2021, according to a report by the Associated Press.

The pro-mass migration group Pueblo Sin Fronteras was ecstatic about the new caravan and urged the incoming Biden administration to welcome them with open arms in a statement that it released recently.

“We recognize the importance of the incoming Government of the United States having shown a strong commitment to migrants and asylum seekers, which presents an opportunity for the governments of Mexico and Central America to develop policies and a migration management that respect and promote the human rights of the population in mobility,” the statement said.

In addition, the group stated, ”We will advocate that the Biden government honors its commitments.”

Additionally, the group called for immigration reform (amnesty) by scrapping laws that make migrants stay in Mexico as their asylum requests are processed.

“A new United States Government is an opportunity to work with the Mexican Government to develop a cooperation plan with Central America to address the causes of migration, together with civil society organizations, as well as an opportunity to increase regional cooperation regarding the persons in need of protection, and to dismantle illegal and inhuman programs such as Remain in Mexico, the United States’ Asylum Cooperation Agreements with El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, as well as the Title 42 expulsions by the United States authorities,” Pueblo Sin Fronteras stated.

According to a Fox News report, Biden has vowed to provide citizenship to illegal aliens and do away with a number of Trump era policies such as the enforcement of the public charge rule, the temporary immigration moratorium during the Wuhan virus pandemic, and several restrictions to the H1-B visa system that kept legal immigration in check. Additionally, Bden wants to implement a moratorium on ICE deportations.

Curiously, Susan Rice, a Biden administration policy advisor revealed that the U.S. would not be fully opening the borders to migrants right off the bat.

“Processing capacity at the border is not like a light that you can just switch on and off,” Rice told the Spanish news site EFE. “Migrants and asylum seekers absolutely should not believe those in the region peddling the idea that the border will suddenly be fully open to process everyone on Day 1. It will not.”

These caravans will only grow larger as time goes by. The Biden administration’s weak border policies serve as a magnet for migrants. Border security is a pillar of any coherent political jurisdiction. Failure to secure a border, will inevitably lead to political chaos.

If Republicans are serious about getting back into power, they should unapologetically push for strong border policies, zero tolerance on illegal immigration, and a legal immigration moratorium.
