Pastor David Barnhart of St. Junia United Methodist Church in Birmingham, Alabama, delivered a powerful sermon on Facebook last June to the generation of vipers and hypocrites who are passing forced birthing legislation there and across the nation.

Too many of those churches aren’t helping people who aren’t members. For them charity is very. very limited – and they’re not going to get women jobs with living wages, or help with childcare or food or housing.
