    I do think that the average Catholic would care as well as many parts of the hierarchy.  I'm thinking the same pro-immigration voices within the church in America are also the ones who would be upset over this.

    Catholics dabbling in politics was only allowed if the Church could call all the shots, say the Vatican States in Italy, the Pope's own private fiefdom.  Aristide OTOH wasn't part of the hierarchy and was already a rouge priest and opportunist.  He was no angel alas....

    •  About half of your average Catholics (0+ / 0-)

      yes.  Not much of the hierarchy above the rank of monsignor.

      Aristide was no angel, indeed, but neither was Ignaz Seipel, whose political career followed the demise of the Vatican States by about two generations.
