Jesus was a refugee & did break the law. He was crucified as a felon under Roman law. Christian nationalists like @Paula_White are enabling injustice w/ biblical interpretations that echo #SlaveholderReligion. christianpost.com/news/paula-whi…

AG Jeff Sessions used the Bible to justify policies like closing our borders to those in need of refuge & tearing children away from their families.
Twisting the Word of God in defense of immoral practices is a tactic that has been used to justify keeping Black people in chattel slavery, committing genocide against native Americans & segregating people under Jim Crow. #SlaveholderReligion
Sessions’ comments are anathema to any person of faith. And those politicians & clergy who support him & this policy are accessories to these immoral crimes against children, families & humanity.

The story of America is not a struggle b/w liberal & conservative visions of common life; it’s the story of a plantation economy struggling against everyday people for power & control.
Every successful effort to expand democracy—from abolition to women’s suffrage to labor & civil rights—has been driven by a moral movement among everyday people.
The plantation economy resisted moral movements by investing in #slaveholderreligion. Preachers who defend anti-democratic policies are well-funded by the corporate elites & those who remain quietly apolitical are rewarded.
