Ministers' march has a message for Trump

Quotes from the Ministers March:

We are all in this together. We may have come on different ships. The mayflower. The slave ship. The immigration ship or across the Rio Grand but we are now all in this boat together.
-Rev. Marshall Hatch, Co-Chairman of the Board of the Leaders Network

Brothers and sisters There is no room for hatred in this country. You hear this southern voice?
It’s time to take those statues down. But leave the base so we have to tell our children and our grandchildren what an evil wicked thing this country did, but brothers and sisters we will never go back.
And Mr Trump I tell you this, AFG has got a great big can of whoop ass we’re gonna open up on you.
-Jeffrey David Cox Sr., National President of the American Federation of Government Employees

Firing the attorney general to stop an investigation of foreign meddling into our election, this is not normal.
Pardoning the sheriff convicted of contempt of court and racial profiling, this is not normal.
Press briefings from the white house un-televised and filled with misinformation, this is not normal.
Threatening of nuclear war and rumor of war by president by tweet is not normal.
Refusing to condemn racism and anti antisemitism is not normal.
Somebody has to have the courage to stand up and say, "This emperor has no clothes."
-Rev. Marshall Hatch

More than 1,000 religious leaders march to the Department of Justice.

More than a 1,000 religious leaders from various faiths on Monday descended upon Washington, D.C. to protest against President Trump on moral grounds.

The "One Thousand Ministers March for Justice" started in front of the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial on the 54th anniversary of the civil rights leader's beloved "I have a dream speech."

The Rev. Al Sharpton organized the event, according to The Washington Post, and it will be attended by Christian, Muslim and Jewish leaders.

"We want to convene ministers from all faiths to make a moral statement that no matter what party is in office, there are certain moral things that should be nonnegotiable," he told The Post. "That is voting rights, health care, criminal justice reform and economic justice."
