Ministers Shut Down Jeff Sessions Mid-Speech For His Anti-Christian Actions Against Immigrants (VIDEO)

This is so great. Sessions was in the middle of a speech defending Trump’s horrific immigration policy when two pastors stood up and protested using Jesus’ own words against him.

On Monday Attorney General Jeff Sessions gave a speech at a religious liberty conference organized by the Federalist Society. And it didn’t go well.

In his speech Sessions was defending Donald Trump’s awful immigration policy. He was in the middle of saying that we should not allow immigrants and refugees into this country when Rev. Will Green, the pastor at Ballard Vale United Methodist Church, stood up and interrupted him.

“Brother Jeff, as a fellow United Methodist, I call upon you to repent, to care for those in need,” Green said.

Green then recited Matthew 25:42-43, using Jesus’ own words against the attorney general. “For I was hungry, and you did not feed me. I was a stranger, and you did not welcome me,” he said.

A minute later security guards entered the room and threw the pastor out. But the fun didn’t stop there. As soon as Green was thrown out of the room another pastor stood up to defend him.

The pastor from First Baptist Church of Jamaica Plain in Boston, Rev. Darrell Hamilton II, said, “That is a person that represents the Christian tradition, the faith that everyone here professes to believe in, actually sharing the words of Jesus himself, the words of Jesus that are represented in the book of Isaiah.”

When the security guards came back to throw Hamilton out someone in the audience started booing and heckling them.

“I thought we were here to protect religious liberty, sir. I thought we were here to protect religious liberty,” he said.

“I am a pastor of a Baptist church, and you are escorting me out for exercising my religious freedom,” Hamilton said, adding: “That is very hypocritical for this group of people to be wanting to be protecting religious freedom while you are escorting me out for doing that work.”

After being tossed from Sessions’ speech Green gave an interview to the Religion News Service and he said that the reason he interrupted Sessions was “because his entire political agenda is antithetical to the gospel of Jesus Christ.”

“I think I have a responsibility to call him to account about the harm he’s doing,” Green said.

Hamilton later said, “Jeff Sessions is not a champion of true religious liberty. And as a Baptist preacher, in the long legacy of Baptist preachers such as Roger Williams and John Leland, I disrupted Jeff Sessions to defend the protection of both soul and religious freedom of all people as a true witness of Christian religion practice.”
