While Sessions spoke about religious freedom at the Boston Lawyers chapter of the conservative Federalist Society, two religious leaders interrupted his speech, according to video footage from ABC News. The first man, since identified as United Methodist Pastor Will Green of the Ballard Vale United Church in Andover, quoted lines attributed to Jesus in the Gospel of Matthew: “I was hungry and you did not feed me. I was a stranger and you did not welcome me. I was naked and you did not clothe me.” The verses are frequently read as Jesus’s exhortation to care for the poor, sick, and marginalized.

He then told Sessions, “Brother Jeff, as a fellow United Methodist, I call upon you to repent, to care for those in need, to remember that when you do not care for others you are wounding the body of Christ.”

While Green did not explicitly state what he was criticizing Sessions for, the attorney general has frequently come under fire from some religious groups for his hardline stance on immigration, including his role in helping enact the Trump administration’s migrant family separation policy. Sessions is currently advocating for the narrowing of grounds for applying for asylum in the United States, even as a 4,000-strong caravan of migrants from Honduras is currently making its way to the United States-Mexico border.

His companion, Pastor Darrell Hamilton of the First Baptist Church in Boston, rose to give a second speech, but was drowned out by boos and cries of “go home” from the audience. As he was escorted out, Hamilton accused his audience of being “hypocrites” for advocating for religious liberty politically, only to deny him the opportunity to express his religious faith by quoting the gospel at the event.

Throwing pastors out of a public event does not seem terribly Christin, but then again these people would lock up Jesus himself if he interfered with their agenda. 

You know we keep asking when actual Christians are going to start confronting these fake Christians about their immoral behaviors. 

I think we might see the beginning of that now.

      I live a couple of miles from where the rally was. There are plenty of “real” Synagogues in the area that they didn’t have to get a Jews for Jesus rabbi if they really wanted to.

      I’m wondering how many Orthodox Jews, that vote republican because of the abortion issue, are going to wake up and realize the rethugs are not working for their best interests.

    What is the deal with the so called Christian pastor and ICE agent on FOX spreading the rumor that the caravan people are going to bring leprosy to the US? Do they stay up at night to come up with these lies?
    ============================================
    Fox News Guest Claims Migrant Caravan Carries ‘Leprosy,’ Will ‘Infect Our People,’ Offers No Evidence
    ……There have been almost zero cases of leprosy in El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, the three countries where the majority of the migrants originate from, in recent years, according to the World Health Organization. There is no evidence of any smallpox cases anywhere in the world. There are cases of tuberculosis in Central America as there are in the United States…..

    https://www.dermotcole.com/reportingfromalaska/2018/10/27/dunleavy-mentions-cutting-a-non-existent-state-expenditure-to-save-money?fbclid=IwAR0pzOAqbJcVscYVnUOgZgxNP5yIZKErpEXEHfERPG__lDZ0RxcMdoMNnDs

    you can’t eliminate something that doesn’t exist.
    Dunleavy also likes to say that he wants to eliminate “climatologists.” I think that means he doesn’t want the state to spend money studying climate change. He is unaware of the need for this research and its importance to the future of the planet.” In 2017 Dunleavy said he wanted to cut $1.1 billion from the state budget over four years. It would be the equivalent of nearly wiping out what the state spends in general funds on the University of Alaska year after year.
    He never gave details on what to cut, simply saying that it would be difficult. He doesn’t talk about his $1.1 billion plan anymore and claims the recent rise in oil prices made his long-term plan for fiscal sustainability irrelevant.
    He’s trying to buy his way into the governor’s office with promises of a giant Dunleavy dividend. f elected, he will have a hard time backing away from this recklessness.

    If the money were to be included in a single check, the dividend in 2019 could be $5,000 or $6,000 per person.

    Dunleavy has not offered any analysis to show how a giant dividend would fit into state finances for either the next few years or the long term. His comments on this are as reliable as his take on the commuter rail study. The Permanent Fund is large enough that the full impact of excessive early withdrawals would not be seen until long after the current crop of elected officials has been replaced.

    The Permanent Fund belongs not just to those alive at this moment, but to future generations, who have no say in how it is managed.”

    Ummm, we have this invention called MEDICINE…..ANTIBIOTICS. If any of these poor people DO have leprosy, well lets give them some antibiotics for dawg’s sake.
    People are stupid if they fall for these medievil scare tactics.

    Gryph: You should be ashamed of yourself. EVERY TIME you post an article about Our Respected Attorney General, you accompany the article with a photo of Alfred E. Neumann. You can do better than that.
