Hypocrisy: Episcopalian leaders say, "No money to control borders - uh - unless they are ours."
Last summer, the Episcopal Church General Convention passed Resolution B006, which reads in part,
Resolved, That the General Convention call for termination of any program which allows or funds local enforcement agencies to enforce immigration law, and return that enforcement to Federal Immigration Agents, leaving local law enforcement agencies the work of keeping communities safe and dedicating their resources to that end, and provide for a sense of safety for immigrant victims of crimes to come forward and report without fear of detention and deportation...
Meanwhile, the Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church uses local Bishops and dioceses, funded with money diverted from the national church budget, to sue dissenting congregations and individual church members because "the Episcopal Church, for matters of its own integrity, cannot encourage other parts of the Anglican Communion to set up shop within its jurisdiction..."
Once again, the Episcopal Church's elitists lecture an entire nation to live by standards that the tiny denomination won't observe.
