A dissident to President Donald Trump’s current political climate, San Diego Bishop Robert McElroy encouraged a crowd of close to 700 people to “all become disrupters.”
McElroy’s six-minute speech at the World Meeting of Popular Movements took place in front of a group comprised of community organizers and self-proclaimed social justice warriors.
“President Trump was the candidate of disruption. He was the disrupter,” McElroy said on Saturday. “Well now, we must all become disrupters.”
Believing President Trump will “send troops into our streets to deport the undocumented, [and] rip mothers and fathers from their families,”McElroy advocated for fellow leaders of the Catholic church to “see, act, judge” against Trump.
“We must make the issues of jobs, housing, immigration, economic disparities, and the environment foundations for common efforts, rather than of division. We must seek prophetic words and prophetic actions which produce unity and cohesion, and we must do so in a spirit of hope, which is realistic,” McElroy exclaimed.
Conservative opposition chimed in on Twitter, with matching ferocity.

#BishopRobertMcElroy:proud of the hate you are spreading against our Church? You’ve given in to the sins of the flesh. You’re no man of God.
