    Bishop Mariann Edgar Budde, who oversees St. John's Episcopal Church in Washington DC, responds to President Trump's photo-op at the church shortly after his remarks about the protests over the death of George Floyd.​

    https://www.cnn.com/videos/politics...shop-st-johns-trump-bible-photo-ac360-vpx.cnn

    Video at the link. The bishop rebukes Trump pretty strongly.

    It is certainly a typically trumpian display of hypocrisy, callousness and thought only for creating a public image to manipulate public perception and opinion of himself. Trump calls himself a law and order presuhdint; I call him a shameless hypocrite.

    Shut up, bishop. The Episcopal Church has long been an extreme LW heretical cult.

    I think CNN maintains a list of people in various positions who will be ready to say how "outraged" they are should the President touch on their area of expertise or profession. They might even keep them on retainer. But in the end this is just one person's opinion and CNN is trying to pass it off as something more than that even while doing so against a backdrop of people who would burn down churches because "justice".

    Of course she does in spite of the respect he went to show the national historical landmark and make the point this is as bad as it has gotten that they set this historic church on fire as he inspected area around the White House.

    Maybe she should have thanked him for his concern and empathy. Instead she showed her arse.

    Oh! You mean the evangelical church (and others) went off the rails to the right and in comparison it LOOKS LIKE the Episcopal church is on the left.

    Why should she shut up? Trump used her burned-out Church as a site for a political stunt. When was the last time he was actually inside any Church? When was the last time he actually read that Bible? I often fail to understand Americans, but if our PM did that, Australians could understand it as our PM is a Bible bashing Hillsong Happy Clapper. Trump is just a personal grub at so many levels no Church would want to own.

    This PATHETIC LEFTIST HACK Bishop says she is outraged that Trump "sanctioned the use of teargas" while standing outside her church which the protestors tried their best to burn down, and partially did! Uh, lady, if authorities didn't use these kind of tactics, then you wouldn't have a church left! What an utterly DUMB and USELESS human being she is! :roflol:

    The Bible says nothing about police using teargas, which is what this dumb, useless Bishop was angry about! :roflol:

    Nope, not the case. Much like the Democrat party, it moved to the left while the others stayed where they are! The extremist churches have always been extreme. Want to try again?

    Every President has walked back and forth to that church. It is a symbol for the extremes to which this anarchy has steeped and his pledge to make something happen to stop it, it is a National Historical Landmark. The Bishop can show a little grace and dignity in the light of current events.

    Trump just attacked citizens tonight. Standing there, nonviolent. This is a major issue. Gas and shot them!!

    For what? It wasnt law and order or protecting the people or allying with peaceful protests. It was because his ego was hurting......

    What do you mean he attacked citizens? His National Guard probably efficiently dealt with some human waste scumbag THUGS in a way which could be considered "attacked." Is that what you mean? He attacked them via his National Guard? If so, then - YEP! He did do that! :roflol:

    Who, the human waste THUG scumbags who set the church on fire? :roflol:

    What the hell are you talking about?

    American citizens as thugs? They were peaceful and he came in with gas and shooting. If that's your idea of thugs then God help ya.

    I hope he doesn't trip on the way to the basement tonight......

    Since the Episcopal church violates Jesus Christ’s own definition of marriage , by performing marriage of same sex and transgender, and because homosexuality is practiced unabashedly as a non sinful act,, the Episcopal church is destined for an eternal damnation of fire , much worse than the arsonist rioters could have ever inflicted,

    Nonetheless, Trump vowing to prevent future episodes of arson against such blasphemous Church, shows a respect for the 1st Amendment right to practice religion in spite of such heretical proselytizing, which is exactly the kind of neutral position expected of a POTUS

    Trump deserves the hiding he is getting and will get over that abysmal and cheap Vaudville act. Was this the brain fart of his new Kewpie Doll press person? Stupid, stupid idiot. Just plain dumb. He uses the biff to make sure it is safe for him to then ever so bravely walk to a Church he likely has never been in, hold a Bible he likely has never read, to pull a pathetic political stunt. Dunno whether I read or heard today that he was trying a Gen Patton bit of propaganda.

    I'm not aware of much the evangelical church believes that the church of the first few centuries didn't believe. The dying Episcopal Church can't say that by a long shot.

    Funny how on this church's signboard in front it says 'Everyone Welcome', unless you're a conservative GOP POTUS that is.

    Well said.

    BTW, a female Bishop is an oxymoron. For those who care, here's a good summary of her screwy theology:
