Latinos may be 'future' of U.S. Catholic Church

This is an article I found on CNN about Latinos being the "future" of U.S. Catholic Church: Click Me.

'"They still confuse every Hispanic as being from Mexico, and that everyone is here illegally,' says Moreno Garcia.'' This quote from the article hit me the most; it is interesting how stereotypes stick around for such a long time. Religions emphasize on love, yet for some people, the love is limited to "their own kind". Moreno Garcia also says: "When you go to heaven, and you're in front of St. Peter, what would you want to have in your hand, your baptismal certificate or your passport?" Sharing the same religion is a blessed thing; when in front of God, there should be no difference in race or ethnicity.
