According to a story in the Gazette Newspaper, for the People's Republic of Takoma Park, it seems that the regular Way of the Cross was not enough for the folks over at St. Camilus.
As if focusing on the scourging, the suffering of Mary and ultimately the Crucifixion was not enough, they decided to amend the stations just a bit and meditate on issues such as deportation or climate change. Working with the Latino Justice and Peace and Integrity of Creation Committee (don't you just love the Social Justice crowd names), they decided upon the topics to be covered.
So, in discussing the topic of deportation, Fr. Jacek Orzechowski said: "So many people, especially in [Prince George's] County, so many people who are members of our parish have been somehow impacted, even deported, because of minor traffic violations."
Sorry Fr. Orzechowski, people do not get deported for minor traffic violations. They are stopped for those violations but are then determined to have broken more serious laws, such as entering the country illegally, and are then deported.
But, the real purpose of this was summed up nicely by Margarita Silverstone of the People's Republic: "I mean, tea-party people are at times equally informed by their own religious faiths in terms of their choices, this is sort of a more liberal Christian bent, but it's political choices, as well."
