Trump land: Racist ALL

 The Church of Our Savior in Silver Spring, Maryland had a sign announcing the time of a Spanish Language service slashed this past Saturday night and the words about crudely written on the back.
 By the time I drove by on Sunday afternoon the words had been replaced with two poster both reading "Loves Wins".  The Bishop of the Diocese of Washington came to the service to worship with the congregants.  She's a class act.
The Bishop also wrote a letter to the Diocese:

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ:
Last night at Episcopal Church of Our Saviour, Hillandale in Silver Spring, Maryland, both a sign advertising the Spanish-language Mass and the wall of the parish's memorial garden were vandalized with the words, "Trump Nation. Whites Only." I am heartsick, and can only imagine how the people of Our Saviour, one of the most culturally diverse parishes in the diocese, feel.
I will be with Our Saviour's Spanish-language congregation for Mass at 1 pm, and I invite as many of you as are able to join me there. In your services this morning, I hope that you can include prayers for the people of Our Saviour and let your congregations know of the invitation to gather with them in solidarity at 1 pm today.
Bishop Mariann
