He’s right about one thing: It is a spiritual war, between good & evil, right & wrong. As a bishop in the Church, I have to warn him, though, that he’s not on the side that he thinks he’s on.

Trump’s head of the Federal Election Commission recently came out & said “the separation of church and state is a ‘fallacy,’ that Trump’s 2017 EO allows faith leaders to endorse candidates, and that the 2020 election is a ‘spiritual war.’”

Black faces in high places do not get a pass. We can’t allow McConnell’s former lawyer to misrepresent the function of a grand jury & pretend he doesn’t have authority as AG to bring charges against the officers who killed Breonna Taylor.

As she lay dying, Breonna Taylor was not extended the same help that she had provided others. None of the officers involved in her killing have been charged in her death.

Grand juries don’t decide truth, just the need for indictments and a court trial. This attorney general and grand jury have failed even in that minimum standard.

Civil lawsuits that insurance companies pay can't become the answer to murder by officers of the state. We need a federal law that holds police officers accountable for killing innocent, unarmed people.

Just because the attorney general is Black does not mean he gets a pass on criticism. He, too, is an enabler of racism for not allowing these officers to be tried in Breonna Taylor’s death.

Yes, they endangered the neighbors. But Breonna Taylor got a casket, and not a single officer is charged in her death or will be tried in state criminal court for it. She cannot be erased from this story.

This is a damnable decision. Police used a battering ram and broke the door off its hinges as they entered Breonna Taylor’s apartment, shooting her at least five times. Anything less than indictments for the full extent of the officers’ actions cannot stand.

. reacts to the Breonna Taylor indictments: “It’s not what we wanted… Anything less than indictments for a full extent of the officers’ actions ultimately cannot stand... We have to keep on pushing."

.: “When we talk about systemic racism, it has many layers. And this is not just this moment. What you see in the streets is a combination of moments throughout history… This is not just a moment for the Black community. This is a moment for America.”

If they’re gonna do this they must pay a political price. We must have a voter turnout like never before... We must make it clear you don’t even get to threaten doing it, let alone do it. This is a battle for life & death in this democracy!

"Jewish tradition teaches that when a tzadeket—a righteous person—dies, an opening is created for a moral and spiritual awakening. We pray that Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death ... will in fact spark that great awakening."
