Default The National Prayer Breakfast?

Just WHAT was that?


The leader of the gathering announces the theme which is Jesus' own.
Trump speaking in an opposing manner to the gathering's purpose? Even cursing? At a prayer breakfast?

Yeah, they also let Satan's seed Pelosi in with a speaking part.

Pelosi - “Let us pray that commercial interests never blind us to the struggles around the world.”

President Trump- “I don’t like people who use their faith as justification for doing what they know is wrong,” the president said. “Nor do I like people who say, ‘I pray for you,’ when they know that that’s not so. So many people have been hurt, and we can’t let that go on.”

The notion that Trump is a practicing Christian is the most ridiculous part of this entire con.

You don't know what he or ANY person thinks or feels in their heart.
Only God does.
As far as we the people who love our country, God and the constitution are concerned, that very God is looking out for the best interests of this great nation as well as our President.

Whether he is or is not a practicing Christian is beside the point. Pelosi likes to talk about her faith quite often. Yet her deeds are contrary to the very faith that she portends to practice. So are we to believe what Pelosi says or believe what Pelosi does?

As for Trump, he has done more in 3 years to protect Religious freedoms than past administrations have done for the last 50 years. I don't care if he is a practicing Christian or not, I only care about his deeds. And so far, they line up with my Christian faith much more so than Pelosi or any of the other Dems have shown since Trump was elected.

I agree, that's like saying Obama was a practicing Christian.

The guy who is actually capable of empathy and appears to be a loving and faithful husband and father is certainly a lot closer to living out Christian ideals than a guy who cheated on multiple wives, slept with porn stars and then illegally paid them hush money, said that avoiding venereal diseases was his own personal Vietnam, and spends about half of his waking hours insulting people.

Yup, I can't argue with that. On a personal level, Trump is lacking in a lot of areas, I will agree. However, I noticed that you avoided replying to my post.
