Royal Wedding Bishop Leads March to White House to Protest Trump’s ‘America First’ Policies
The bishop who lit up the royal wedding with his rousing sermon led a march to the White House to protest President Donald Trump‘s American First policies Thursday night.
Episcopal Presiding Bishop Michael Curry, who made headlines for his role at Britain’s Prince Harry and Meghan Markle‘s wedding, has previously branded Trump’s America First policy “a theological heresy for the followers of Christ.”
He also decried the Trump administration as a “crisis of moral and political leadership at the highest levels of our government”.
Joining with other pastors and persons of faith Thursday evening, Curry started the “Reclaiming Jesus” action with worship that overflowed Washington’s National City Church and then helped lead a candlelight vigil that moved from the church to Lafayette Square Park, across the street from the White House.
Social media users posted images and video from the peaceful scene.
