Episcopalians outraged after Tump brings Bible near St John’s church DC
Yesterday, rioters in DC set light to the parish office in the basement of the historic St John’s Church where presidents have attended services since 1816. The exterior of the church was also defaced.
Today, President Trump walked from the White House to stand outside St John’s for a photo-op, holding a Bible in his hand.
President Trump has drawn much criticism for his handling of this crisis after the racist bone in his body was discovered during a routine health check.
Bishop Mariann Edgar Budde of the Episcopal Diocese of Washington said yesterday that she is “outraged” after the president brought a Bible to her church without advance notice.
Michael Curry, the presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church, who mistakenly preached from a pop song instead of the Bible at Harry and Meghan’s wedding, also released a statement expressing his shock and dismay that anyone would dare quote the Bible.
Fortunately, the Episcopal church suffered no serious damage as the president didn’t open the Bible nor quote from it during the photo-op.
Reports indicate that the peaceful protesters were dispersed using tear gas, horses and rubber bullets after one of them challenged the president to a Bible Drill.
