Several Clergy, Muslim Advocates Condemn Trump Travel Restrictions

COLUMBUS, Ohio (WTVN) -- Several religious leaders joined the Executive Director of the Columbus chapter of the Council on American Islamic Relations in condemning the latest travel restrictions imposed by White House.

The faith leaders say there's no room in modern times for what they see as discriminatory practices.

"I fear that there could be a drip, drip, drip of crazy stuff that renders us immune after a while," said Pastor Rich Johnson, of Sanctuary Columbus Church.

Johnson was joined at Trinity Episcopal Church, across from the Ohio Statehouse, by Rev. Tim Ahrens, Senior Minister of First Congregational Church; Jennifer Nimer, Executive Director of CAIR; Rev. June Wilkins, Senior Minister, Gethsemane Lutheran Church; Rabbi Misha Zinkow, Senior Rabbi, Temple Israel; Rev. Susan Smith, Crazy Faith Ministries; and Norsed Nooh, Director, Somali Islamic Centers of Ohio.
