A Catholic church in New York City is being criticized for hosting a Black Lives Matter prayer session where white congregants were asked to renounce their “white privilege” in the name of “racial justice.”
During the prayer reportedly held Sunday, St. Xavier Catholic Church worshippers repeated the words of Father Kenneth Boller, who had festooned the stage with giant portraits of George Floyd, Breanna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery.
“Do you affirm that white privilege is unfair and is harmful to those that have it and those who do not? Yes,” Fr. Boller says, going on to have parishioners condemn white supremacy.
