+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.

Thanks SeanDF - see correction in story and please sign your name next time you comment. ~ed.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
