Strickland appears to be the only U.S. Bishop with the moral integrity to publicly condemn the evil BLM organization. Imagine their response if BLM was a conservative group!
“Please educate yourself on this!” Bishop Joseph Strickland wrote in an Independence Day tweet in reference to the BLM mission statement.
