Leaders of a California church have come to the decision to stop praying for the president of the United States by name, because they say “Donald Trump” is a “trauma trigger” for some parishioners.
Mike Kinman, the rector of All Saints Episcopal Church in Pasadena, said in a Jan. 6 open letter that the church is removing the names of all leaders from its prayers as a compromise to fulfill their duties as Episcopalians while also protecting the “vulnerable among us in this hour.”
“As Episcopalians, we pray for our leaders. It’s one of those things we do,” Mr. Kinman wrote. “If you come to All Saints this Sunday, you’ll notice that we have removed the proper names from our prayers for those in authority. Whereas before we prayed for ‘Barack, our president,’ we are now praying for ‘our president, our president-elect, and all others in authority.’ This practice will continue for at least the near future.
“We are in a unique situation in my lifetime where we have a president elect whose name is literally a trauma trigger to some people — particularly women and people who, because of his words and actions, he represents an active danger to health and safety,” he wrote.
“We can agree that Jesus loves Donald Trump and that we all should pray for him,”
Libtard church of the poison minds.
Christians are supposed to be objective, and wise!! With wisdom , you'd think there would come some TOUGHNESS, FOR CRYING OUT LOUD !! OUR SOCIETY, AND " THE CHURCH",. IS IN WORSE SHAPE THAN I THOUGHT !!
A REAL Christian Church..., it's leaders and it's members would always remain positive with their prayers and never be negative or disrespectful to anyone especially a leader who has not even had a chance to show anyone anything yet.....!! Calling him a " TRAUMA TRIGGER " is negative and unfounded at this point especially...!! SIMPLY UN-CHRISTIAN LIKE.....!!
Was not George Washington a member of the Episcopal Church?
California is so mixed up it is a wonder that it can even stay connected to the United States of America.
The whole Country is INFILTRATED with " MIXED UP PEOPLE "...., CALIFORNIA does not OWN THE PATENT on that one John....!!
so very true the whole country is infiltrated with mixed up people
Yes John as probably most of the signers of Declaration of Independence were as well. In fact George Washington prior to the American Revolution had been directed from the Church of England to conduct prayer service as lay reader for parishioners in absents of a priest or bishop.
Pasadena is not recognizable from 6-7 years ago, hot & cold running Muslims everywhere, all the classy restaurants, and stores along Colorado Blvd. gone, just a bunch of empty store fronts with homemade signs designating "Fire Sales", "Lost our Lease" etc. Once a fun place with lots of great restaurants, stores is now a Wasteland, but the Muslims have arrived. Shame. Met Presbyterian Preacher on plane flying to California, prior to Election, and they were all in for Hillary.............strange ,supposedly "Godly" Organizations promoting the Secular Commie Atheists.
I do not see how any Christian can support either liberalism, progressivism or Bernie or HBeast.
IMHO, the reason so many "Christians" did, is that pastors are not doing their jobs very well.
People need to understand world views and the Christian world view, in order to understand THEIR world view, and the repercussions of all of this social engineering and favored classes bullsht.
Many of them have bowed down to the dollar instead of God. Look at how many so-called religious groups have taken to helping illegals...........because the government gives them HUGE "donations" if they do...
