Bishop lobbies Sen. McCain on immigration

CWN - May 14, 2010

Accompanied by other Arizona religious leaders, Bishop Gerald Kicanas of Tucson, vice president of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, met with Sen. John McCain on May 13 in an attempt to gain the former presidential candidate’s support for immigration reform legislation. “We emphasized to Sen. John McCain that he is an important voice, that he has been an important voice and continues to be an important voice, and I think he understands that,” said Bishop Kicanas.

    If Sen. Mc Cain is smart he will listen to religious leaders. Religious faith and observance are powerful antidotes to drugs. Twelve Step programs which assist people to overcome addictions of all kinds are predicated on a basic religious faith in a Higher Power.

    I'm thankful to Bishop Kicanas and the other religious leaders for doing this. The only people being scared by Arizona's 'tough' new law are women and children. The drug runners and human smugglers are laughing, because law enforcement will be focusing on easy targets, not the real villains.
