Rev. Lee Shafer, rector at Anniston’s Grace Episcopal Church, demonstrated  some moral consequences to Beason-Hammon, the Alabama Anti-immigration bill.

This bill sent us back 50 years and is entirely inconsistent with the radical Gospel of Christ, a gospel that is good news to the poor and the oppressed. It offers salvation to all and, as we read in Matthew, “rest to the weary.” HB56 is also inconsistent with the radical message of the freedom that is so proudly displayed on the Statue of Liberty, the beacon of hope for all of our very own ancestors.
