The bishop of San Diego gave a pointed speech this weekend, in which he urged his social justice warriors to do whatever they can to stop Trump’s efforts of fulfilling his campaign promises.
Bishop Robert McElroy gave a 20 minute speech at the U.S. regional meeting of the World Meeting of Popular Movements, saying, “President Trump was the candidate of disruption. He was the disrupter.”
“Well, now we must all become disrupters,” he said.
“We must disrupt those who would seek to send troops into our streets to deport the undocumented, to rip mothers and fathers from their families,” McElroy said. “We must disrupt those who portray refugees as enemies, rather than our brothers and sisters in terrible need. We must disrupt those who train us to see Muslim men and women and children as sources of fear rather than as children of God.”
“We must disrupt those who seek to rob our medical care, especially from the poor. We must disrupt those who would take even food stamps and nutrition assistance from the mouths of children,” he said.
Cheers and applause filled the room as almost 700 “community organizers and social justice protagonists” showed their support for the bishop’s address.
