Bishop Mariann Edgar Budde spoke out against racism at Sunday's service at Washington National Cathedral and referenced the events from the past week.
After President Trump visited St. John's Church on Monday, Budde said she was "outraged" after the President visited to her church without advance notice to share "a message antithetical to the teachings of Jesus."
During the service, which was live streamed from the cathedral, Budde commented on the dynamic between Trump and Washington, DC, Mayor Muriel Bowser.
"The President of the United States threatened to use military force against American citizens. And then proceeded to use federal officers to disperse peaceful protesters outside of the White House. The African-American mayor of this city stood her ground. She stood the ground for all of us. The debt to black America in this democracy continues," Budde said.
She continued the sermon against racism with references to Ahmaud Arbery's death. Budde said another member of her church community used the term "Covid-1619" to describe systemic racism in America.
