Pastoral Letter on Presidential Executive Orders

In response to the current presidential administration’s issuance of troublesome executive orders, ANCC Presiding Bishop George Lucey, FCM, published a pastoral letter of concern and counsel.

“Mr. Trump has taken steps to dismantle the Affordable Care Act, erect a border wall between Mexico and the U.S., recommence construction of environmentally risky pipelines, punish sanctuary cities, and pump billions of dollars into the military. He has displayed a disregard for truth in favor of ‘alternative facts,’ indulged in open and undisguised hectoring of the media, intelligence officials, and anyone who criticizes him, disregarded ethical standards by refusing to divest himself of his financial holdings, and advocated the resumption of torture and the renewal of black sites.”
