What A Rabbi, An Imam And A Bishop Think About Jeff Sessions’ Zero Tolerance Policy (HBO)

Attorney General Jeff Sessions is facing mounting criticism from an unexpected group: fellow members of his church.

More than 600 members of United Methodist Church issued a formal complaint against Sessions three days after he used a passage from the Bible to justify the Trump administration’s controversial “Zero Tolerance” policy against immigrants arriving at the border. Sessions has been an adamant defender of the policy, which has resulted in over 2,000 children being separated from their parents since early May.

Specifically, his fellow church members are charging him with “the misuse of Romans 13 to indicate the necessity of obedience to secular law,” among other offenses.

They’re far from the only ones criticizing Sessions’ use of religion to defend his policy on the border.

VICE News sat down with a bishop, an imam, and a rabbi to discuss Sessions’ controversial use of religious text — and how religious doctrine is often abused to further political interests.

“In each of our faith traditions and all faith traditions the goal is not to blindly follow but to search and to really explore, and think, and wrestle, and come up with answers,” said Rabbi Yael Rapport when asked about the Attorney General’s use of Romans 13. “I imagine that Sessions used that quote in order to reinforce this idea of hierarchy: that the text is teaching you must follow who’s above you.”

June Miller, James Marvel & MC Mota – Dominator

June Miller return for their final release, a duo who’ve spent years defining their sound within the Ram Records roster and will continue to do years after their final record. From their first single on Ram, to their debut LP Robots and Romans, they’ve supplied some of the heaviest cuts Ram’s discography offers and their next output will be no different.

Dominator and A Pinda Funk also bring on board two featuring artists, fellow Europeans James Marvel and MC Mota.
Whilst James Marvel has become a renowned part of the drum & bass scene in Belgium’s cultural hub Brussels, MC Mota lends his vocals to an array of artists throughout the genre and together they present an undeniably eclectic outfit.

Dominator moves you through an intricately layered world built up slowly by grinding bass and clattering patterns of percussion.
MC Mota’s ragga-like vocals begin to sift through the mix, leading you into a climatic drop. Instigating a beat-lead riot, you’re attacked from all sides, with crushing drums throwing punch after punch. Dominator is your introduction into chaos, whilst still being meticulously constructed.

Next comes A Pinda Funk, a clever play on words with an even more ingenious sound design. Cutting through heavy LFO with its sonic edges, a quick vocal sample from MC Mota narrates the slow descent into anarchy. With its funky elements displayed from start to finish, A Pinda Funk grabs you with catchy hooks and a techy melody, proving that both June Miller and James Marvel have a multifaceted production standard. This single demonstrates why June Miller became so notorious not just within drum & bass, but also within the army of its most definitive imprint. And they will remain as such, within the headphones of music listeners everywhere.

Next up is the Audio remix of ‘Robots and Romans.’ An even darker take on the track reels you in for a barrage of razor sharp drums and twisted bass sound design, giving guaranteed maximum bass weight in the dance! Diving back into the dark, gritty tech step days of the early 2000’s, Inside Info steps in to deliver his remix of the incredible anthem ‘The Truth’ by Kryptic Minds. Distorted, sharp reese basses cut through the fray, delivering an onslaught of stomping, weighty drum hits and low sub grit. Finally, a VIP mix of Rene LaVice’s track ‘The Calling’ feat Ivy Mairi rounds up the release, giving a fresh, different take on the original.
