The Judas Goat and the American Catholic Future

Any Christian following the news must surely be aware of the potential threat to his safety and religious freedom that has been created in the recent decade by the Federal Government’s program to settle in the U.S. hundreds of thousands of Muslims. The potential threat has become a reality in so many cases in recent years as American-born children of Muslim “refugees” have engaged in mass murder while the politically-compromised FBI has tried to cover up their Muslim-inspired motives.
These Muslims are called “refugees”, a term which invokes images of helplessness and desperation which naturally provokes sympathy. In fact, most of those brought here were not refugees. A refugee, according to the UN definition, is a person who leaves a dangerous place (such as a war-torn country) and goes to a safe place. For example, when a Muslim refugee reaches Turkey or some other safe country in Europe or Africa he ceases to be a refugee. His moving on from there to another safe place (like the U.S.) is migration. He is a migrant. Yet these migrants are treated far differently from others, such as Christian Mexicans, who may wish to migrate to the U.S. but cannot legally.
This taxpayer-financed program has accelerated under President Obama and Mrs. Clinton promises to increase it further. The persons advocating those programs are not ordinary Americans; normally they are elites of the government-media axis or executives of Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) who reap big bucks as Federal contractors executing the resettlement tasks. Those folks are often protected by armed guards or isolated from danger because the Muslims are mainly resettled in “fly over country.”
It is self-evident that intentionally importing at tax-payer expense persons who do not want to assimilate and who hold a religion that includes none of the Judeo-Christian Ten Commandments (such as “Thou shall not kill”) is contrary to Christian interests and the American cultural future. Based on that self-evident fact, Christians of good faith must certainly question and even repudiate the role that agencies of their Churches, functioning as NGOs, are serving as the principal Federal contractors of the Obama Administration. In particular, the executives of the NGO reaping the most business from Obama for resettling these Muslims are the Catholic Bishops. This is no secret; Federal contracts or grants with groups under the United States Catholic Conference are public knowledge. A recent article published inLifesite News examined the financial ties between our Bishops and Obama’s program.
To this writer, that fact invokes the image of the Judas goat. A Judas goat is a trained goat used in general animal herding. The Judas goat is trained to associate with sheep or cattle, leading them to a specific destination. In stockyards, a Judas goat will lead sheep to slaughter, while its own life is spared. Whatever may be their level of Catholic Faith and intention, it is a fact that these NGO executives are not concerned as most Americans are about the country their children and grandchildren will have to live in. For the most part they live in figurative “gated communities” away from the work- a- day world of their sheep. What possible reason can explain the lust of Catholic Bishops to provide material cooperation to imposing on their own people hoards of those who call us infidels and have made war on us for 11 centuries?
