Less than one week after speaking at the royal wedding in England, Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop Michael Curry, along with a group of multiracial faith leaders, led hundreds in a procession to the White House Thursday night to condemn racism, misogyny and the immorality of political leaders.
“We are not a partisan group. We are not a left-wing group. We are not a right-wing group. We are a Jesus movement,” Curry said during the prayer service at the Disciples of Christ national church. “We came together as Protestant, Catholic, evangelical. We came together — Republicans, Independents and Democrats. We came together — liberal and conservative and whatever is in the middle. We came together because what is uniting us together is Jesus of Nazareth.”
Curry was joined by prominent progressive evangelical leader Jim Wallis, former Bill Clinton spiritual adviser Tony Campolo and about 20 other left-leaning Christian leaders crossing denominational lines in signing a declaration that was read in front of the gates of the White House lawn following a prayer service held at National City Church.
The declaration is titled “Reclaiming Jesus: A Confession of Faith in a Time of Crisis” and comes in response to what the leaders say is a “time of moral and political crisis.”
