Bishop Who Attacked Trump Over Border Wall Just Put Up Fence to Protect Church from Trespassers

A church that’s highly critical of Donald Trump and is repeatedly criticizing him for his immigration policies has erected a border fence to keep out protestors. The irony seems to be lost on her.

‘St. John’s Episcopal Church has been a thorn in President Trump’s side for several years. Coalescing regularly with ‘Never Trump’ extremists on the left, the liberal church most recently made the news as the site of a controversial visit by Trump in the aftermath of its building being torched by Black Lives Matter activists.

The bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Washington, Mariann Budde, immediately criticized Trump for visiting the church with a Bible, which she called a graceless “photo op.” The church’s rector has also criticized the president for prioritizing the construction of a border wall along the American-Mexican border and the Episcopal Church Migration Ministries has also impugned the president for desiring to make the wall a reality.

Budde, who wrote on op-ed in the New York Times against Trump’s support for the church and protection of it against protestors, is an illegal immigration activist. Claiming that he was guilty of “racialized rhetoric,” Budde wrote in a 2019 statement with three other Episcopalian leaders that Trump’s border policy was guilty of “dehumanizing words” and “a level of abuse and insult.”

And now, St. John’s Episcopal Church has erected a border wall to protect it from protestors that they previously defended as “peaceful” within 24 hours of them setting fire to the church (see below).

Regarding their new border wall, Mariann Budde told the press, “I want to get that fencing out of there as quickly as possible. Not just for the church’s sake, but for the community’s sake.”

Of course, it was the church itself that constructed the fence to keep out “peaceful protestors” who set fire to it, all the while continuing to attack Trump for trying to place a similar fence at America’s southern border.

One protestor told WJLA7, “I think as long as everything stays peaceful, it’s unnecessary. So I think it should come down.”
