“If you truly want to Make America Great Again,” Curry exhorted reciting The New Colossus Then “Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

Presiding Bishop, Michael Curry urged young people to vote and help America find its soul as reported by Anglican News

Speaking at All Saints Church in Pasadena, California, the Archbishop challenged UBE leaders, youth, several hundred local worshippers and visiting conference-goers to consider, “between now and next year, leading a massive voter registration and education drive and a get-out-the-vote campaign.”

Frequently interrupted by applause and shouts of “amen,” he emphasized, “This is not a partisan statement. We can’t tell people how to vote. That’s not right. But we can tell people, ‘You must vote.’

He then painted a chilling portrait of current realities, including the child-parent separations at the U.S. border, a rise in hate crimes, attacks on places of worship and a recent political rally led by President Donald Trump.

Michael Curry said, “Something is fundamentally wrong when crowds chant about a congresswoman, a Somali American, and say to ‘send her home,’ and when the president of the United States says, ‘You need to go back home,’” to four congresswomen of colour who have been openly critical of him.

“This is not a partisan statement, this is a moral statement,” he said. “Something’s wrong. We must help America, this country we love.
