All you said was that US Catholic Bishops oppose restrictions on immigration. Period.

I assumed that I was talking to someone familiar with the Catholic Church, and not someone who wanted to spend time arguing if I qualified my statements enough. The statement that the bishops are against restrictions on immigration is true. It would be more complete with the added "as favored by the GOP and the far right". It would continue to be right with “As they are enacted today”. If I wanted to convey an extreme position, I would have stated it as such. Perhaps even adding the word 'period' at the end as you did, to show the extreme position that I did not take.

But if you can't argue your position, then I guess finding semantically and grammatical errors in statements is what you fill you're time with (see what I did there?).
