British bishop against Donald Trump


Bishop Dr Jo Bailey Wells

From daily The Morning Star in Britain:

New bishop ‘will try to stamp out Trump culture’

Saturday 26th March 2016

THE Church of England’s newest Bishop said yesterday she will try to keep “Trump culture” away from Britain.

Reverend Dr Jo Bailey Wells, 50, who was named as the new Bishop of Dorking on Thursday, said she also wanted to “stand against” a culture where people tweeted or blogged without thinking.

Asked about Muslims being made scapegoats by internet trolls, Dr Wells told the Daily Telegraph: “There is a sort of — you might call it a Trump culture.

“I’ve certainly experienced that in America. I would be keen to keep it from our shores.

“But part of the culture is that we now tweet and blog before we speak and think.

“Cyberspace, the blogosphere, has encouraged that kind of behaviour and I think I want to stand against that.”

US presidential candidate Donald Trump has controversially called for a block on Muslims entering the US, mimicked disabled people and claimed parts of London were “so radicalised” that police were “afraid for their own lives.”
