While it's not uncommon for pastors, district superintendents and bishops to get complaints about a layperson, he said a formal complaint bringing charges is extremely rare, according to the news release.

Hundreds of United Methodists have brought church law charges against Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who is a member of the denomination.

Founded 50 years ago, the United Methodist Church has about 7 million members in the United States and is one of the country's most ideologically diverse Protestant bodies.

Johnson said: "But I stress that that does not mean that we in the United Kingdom are blind to the value of this council".

The session kicked off under a cloud of growing U.S. criticism of the council.

People participate in a protest against a recent US immigration policy of separating children from their families when they enter US as undocumented immigrants, outside the Tornillo Tranit Centre, in Tornillo, Texas, US June 17, 2018.

While many are involved in the immigration policy, the complaint states, "Mr. Sessions - long-term United Methodist in a tremendously powerful, public position - is particularly accountable to us, his church".

Wright told United Methodist News, "I really never would have thought I'd be working on charges against anybody in the Methodist connection, much less a lay person", but the use of Romans 13 to justify the immigration policy that separates children from parents spurred him to take action.

Rising seas to threaten coastal property values
The authors of the research say that this could potentially lead to the most extreme housing crisis the country has ever seen. Also, the San Francisco Bay Area, coastal Louisiana, the Eastern Shore of Maryland and beach communities from Texas to MA .

"I would cite you to the Apostle Paul and his clear and wise command in Romans 13, to obey the laws of the government because God has ordained them for the goal of order". Sessions' United Methodist pastors in Alabama and Virginia, where he now lives, did not immediately respond for a request for comment.

The complaint accuses the Attorney General of child abuse, immorality, and racial discrimination stemming from his support of detaining children, his refusal to grant asylum to domestic violence survivors, and his intent to no longer investigate racial discrimination cases involving police.

"It is inconsistent with our American values to separate these children from their parents", Collins said on CBS' Face the Nation on Sunday.

"[Separation can] cause irreparable harm to lifelong development by disrupting a child's brain architecture", AAP President Colleen Kraft told BuzzFeed News in reference to the report.

The government has said that during one recent six-week period almost 2,000 minors were separated from their parents or adult guardians.

Administration officials have flatly denied that characterization.

The decision, announced earlier by USA ambassador Nikki Haley, was "disappointing, if not really surprising news", Zeid Ra'ad al-Hussein said in a tweet, adding: "Given the state of #human rights in today's world, the US should be stepping up, not stepping back". "There are videos, there are TVs".
