St. John's Church Attacked -- Again: 'Black House Autonomous Zone' I wonder if Episcopal Bishop Mariann Edgar Budde will express how outraged he is like he did when President Trump visited the Church.

Bishop Mariann Edgar Budde: "When the President held up a Bible outside our church as if to claim the mantle of spiritual authority over what had just transpired, I knew that I had to speak. Nowhere does the Bible condone the use of violence against the innocent."

Bishop Mariann Edgar Budde: "Yes, we care deeply about our churches as buildings. But in the end, buildings can be rebuilt. Windows can be replaced. Pillars can be repainted. We can never bring back the lives that have been lost due to horrific police violence."

Bishop Mariann Edgar Budde: "I appear today to express my deep concern about the events of June 1 when our government resorted to acts of violence against peaceful protesters."

Rev. Mariann Budde, Episcopal bishop of Washington (St. John's Lafayette Square is Episcopal.) "Embedded in our nation's history and institutions is the shameful abuse of black Americans and other other persons of color, justified by the sinful notion of white supremacy..."
