We must be conspicuous in the public square as we stand against injustice. Today hundreds of faith leaders will risk arrest at the White House for standing against the racism, greed, and power of the current administration.
As extremist leaders driven by the idols of racism, greed and power continue to break the covenant, faith leaders are marching together to the palace gates of the White House to deliver a clarion call! #MoralWitnessWednesday WATCH via livestream: https://t.co/Iustly5c6chttps://t.co/3FTwoQmde0
The Trump administration has violated what Jesus said should be our top priorities.
That’s why 100s of faith leaders are protesting at the White House today. Join us via livestream & in solidarity using #MoralWitnessWednesday: https://t.co/Iustly5c6c
Preparing to march to the White House...
We have too many religious leaders who speak so much about what God said so little, and speak so little about what God said so much. @RevDrBarber
“For centuries, preachers told their flock that the Bible said they could own people.
Pastors said the Bible upheld Jim Crow.
Today, preachers are using religion to defend disenfranchisement. They are practicing slaveholder religion.” - @wilsonhartgrove #MoralWitnessWednesday
“Our government is profiting from impprisoning children. Now they’re thinking about detaining more kids in the same army base we used for Japanese internment camps.
Stop caging kids! Give us the children yearning to breathe free!” #MoralWitnessWednesday https://t.co/rntuVAGSGG
The secret service has blocked the entrance to the gates of the palace, but faith leaders are still heading to the White House now, to call for this administration & it’s enablers, to repent for their sins! #MoralWitnessWednesday https://t.co/dCsSsAbB5q
“Your administration, your enablers & your court chaplains are under indictment!” @RevDrBarber & faith leaders unite at the White House to deliver a message of morality to an immoral administration. #MoralWitnessWednesday https://t.co/FQsH6aO41l
F-35’s flying over the White House to put on a show for Trump while dozens of clergy protest in front of the White House and are facing arrest is quite the juxtaposition. #moralwitnesswednesday https://t.co/e8Q7Ens3Zw
We are facing the White House exercising our #1A rights (that haven’t been taken away by our fascist-flirters in the government...yet). Clergy are ready to be arrested.
More than 400 faith leaders are, in the words of @RevDrBarber, delivering a moral message, being conspicuous in the public square, and speaking out loudly for what’s right, outside the White House.
There comes a time when enough is enough.
THANK YOU TO ALL religious leaders who joined together to speak out against child detention. Our Executive Director, Rev @EllerRyan, represented all of us at Define American today in this #moralwitnesswednesday march on Washington.
I'm not christian/religious & I DEEPLY agree w/ this on a fundamentally moral and ethical level. Links🔽 Dr. Barber's (short) int.discussing t/need 4Rally for #moralwitnesswednesday Kudos to @PeteButtigieg for (silently) fighting to #wintheera 👏👏 https://t.co/8BHoD4ezLO
#MoralWitnessWednesday I like this. I thought it would be some pro @realDonaldTrump garbage. The most IMMORAL person I can think of, yet all my former church friends suddenly got the concept of super extravagant blinding "grace". Wont last.
