+Parsley speaks out on Alabama immigration law

The Rt. Rev. Henry Parsley, Bishop of Alabama and former Chancellor of the University of the South, Sewanee, TN went on CNN today to explain why the churches are going to court over the new laws on immigration in Alabama:

The new law makes it a crime for an illegal immigrant to apply for any work. School districts will have to report on their students’ immigration status. It will also be a crime to give rides to illegal immigrants or harbor them.

It’s the last part that has four bishops from three Christian denominations in court. They have filed suit to block the law, saying it prevents them from freely practicing their religion.

    It is my understanding that the Rt. Rev. J. Neil Alexander is the current Chancellor of the University of the South. He was installed last January.
