Sacred Heart Catholic Church

When I clicked on  a story in the National Memo this morning, the story  lead-in was, ” Why Catholics don’t like Little Ricky.”

First I did not read one word about Catholics not caring about the Hispanics, secondly as a Oklahoma Catholic, that is not the case. The Catholic Church is championing the cause of the illegal and legal Hispanics in this country. We term it as social justice. When I lived in California and Texas it was the same thing there.

This nation was built with the help of immigrants from all over the world. I agree there needs to be some changes in our immigration laws, but I think we should be treating everyone as we would want to be treated. We have big problems in the justice  and immigration systems in this country. They will have to answer for what they do, as will each one of us.

I believe that amnesty should be given to all who are in this country now and a way to be found to stop the flow into the country. I know that’s easier said than done.  I also believe we should take care of our own but also help others in need.

No matter what political party someone belongs to, tolerance of something different has to become the norm. This country has done a very bad job at tolerance, but it is improving from what it was 40-50 years ago. I am better than my parents and my children are better than I am in accepting differences.  My hopes and prayer is that improvement will continue to take place in the future.
