Whether to confirm Sen. Jeff Sessions as attorney general is a moral decision and not just a political one. That is why religious leaders and theologians are speaking up about it.
Donald Trump used racial bigotry in his presidential campaign; his appointment of Jeff Sessions to be attorney general signals what that means in governing.

In order to make positive change for marginalized people, privileged people must care about and stand up for equal rights. The story of Viola Liuzzo shows us how deep the impact of true empathy is felt. Created Equal co-hosts Stephen Henderson and Laura Weber-Davis speak with Wayne State University Governor Kim Trent about Liuzzo, who traveled from her comfortable home and family in Detroit to help with the march on Montgomery, Alabama from Selma in 1965. Liuzzo felt compelled to help Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and other freedom fighters in making the march.

“It’s theological hypocrisy,” Jim Wallis, an evangelical and the founder of progressive Christian outlet Sojourners, told The Huffington Post.
Wallis pointed to the Biblical passage of Matthew 25, which talks of how at the end of times, “all the nations” will be gathered together and their people will be judged according to how they fed the hungry and welcomed strangers. 
“Again and again, [the Bible says] that rulers, the government, society will be held accountable to God for how they treat the poor, the stranger, the immigrant,” Wallis said.
