Bishop Stika issues statement on DACA program

Emily Booker News 3 Comments

Bishop Stika has issued the following statement regarding the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program:

“Scripture challenges us to see each other through the eyes of God and to never turn our back on the vulnerable and those in need. So it is with great concern that I and my brother bishops react to the news of President Trump’s ending of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. Since 2012, this program has given hope to immigrant youth of reaching their full God-given potential and fulfilling their promise of gratefully giving back to the only country most have ever known. In calling for the program’s end, President Trump has given Congress six months to replace DACA with an alternative program that can be lawfully enacted without court challenges. While disheartened at DACA’s end, it is my fervent prayer that Congress will come together in a bipartisan effort to create a replacement program that will preserve the hope that DACA has provided to so many. I encourage you to contact your legislators to ask their support for an alternative program.”

  1. If I and my wife snuck into Disneyland without paying and brought our newborn baby,and were then caught by the management of the park.Should our child be able to stay and continue to enjoy Disney World anyway?

    Would Bishop Stika issue a statement supporting our”right” to stay in a place that we clearly have NO Right to be?
    Would His Holiness publicly rail against our removal even though we were criminals breaking the law? What would Our Lord think?
    Our Communities, Our Country, Our very Civilization is being destroyed as we watch by liberal,atheistic, degenerate Evil! Why is it that all we seem hear from our “shepherds” is more of the same PC nonsense? Why is it that our Bishops care more about criminals and heretics and “Global Warming” , than the actual care and Spiritual feeding of Faithful Catholics?

    When will His Holiness and our Bishops start caring more about preaching The Gospel of Our Lord, in season or out of season? Regardless of who takes offence? What is so difficult about proclaiming The Truth That Was Given Once To The Saints?

    When 80% of “Catholics” support ” homo-marriage”, Abortion,birth-control,Holy Communion for the Divorced and “Re-Married” and every other Mortal Sin. When they don’t believe in The Real Presence of Our Lord in The Holy Eucharist. Our Shepard’s have left us to the wolves to fend for ourselves! Neither hippy, nor liberal is contained in The Nicene Creed.
    We are TIRED of being sold a bill of goods! Choose Our Lord or this world.
    As for me and my house,we will serve the Lord. We will not stand by and allow the current Zeitgeist attempt to destroy Our Lords Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church. This is NOT the Ancient Faith,and My family Cannot support it. I doubt that any of you care.

    1. We’ve read Bishop Stika’s statement multiple times. Still don’t see the word “right” anywhere. It looks like he is asking our civic leaders to work out a reasonable and legal solution to this. -Editor.
