There is a bad tendency among many of the clergy today, to want to make America* Catholic not by means of conversion, but by way of immigration (this will fail for a number of reasons, but the sort of people who think like this generally aren’t sufficiently reflective to see that). This inverts Christ’s command to convert all nations, and replaces it with a desire to abolish any nation that does not convert, i.e. hatred.
If you want a sane and charitable approach to evangelizing America, it has to go like this:
1. America is in fact, and always has been, a secular-Protestant country.
2. America, as in the actual population thereof, must convert.
*Our clergy have the excuse of being able to pretend that that’s what they’re up to. The ones in Europe have no excuse.
