Royal wedding Bishop to participate in White House protest

Washington, May 23: Bishop Michael Curry, who delivered a sermon at last week’s British royal wedding, is planning to participate in a candlelight vigil and protest in front of the White House on Thursday. Curry will be joined by leaders from Christian churches who are concerned about a “dangerous crisis of moral and political leadership at the highest levels of our government and in our churches”,CNN reported on Tuesday night. Those crises, Curry and the other Christian leaders say, put “the soul of the nation and the integrity of faith” at stake. According to the organisers, at least 1,000 people are expected to turn out for a church service before the protest and for the protest itself, to be held on Thursday evening in Lafayette Square, a park across the street from the White House.
