Evangelicals "lay hands" on Trump in Oval Office, saying it's "such an honor" to pray for him

Such an honor to pray within the Oval Office for @POTUS & @VP .




Trump Prays With Evangelical Leaders in Oval Office
by ANDREW RAFFERTY

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump spent part of Wednesday praying with evangelical leaders in the Oval Office.

Social media posts from attendees show the president’s head bowed in prayer as those around him laid their hands on the commander-in-chief. Vice President Mike Pence is also seen in the picture praying.

“Such an honor to pray within the Oval Office for @POTUS & @VP ,” Johnnie Moore, a former senior vice president at Liberty University, tweeted.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the group was a faith advisory council that meets "from time to time to speak about issues important to that community."

30. Same here...

... these people are human garbage, supporting a piece of human garbage.

They don't care about making the world a better place. They don't care about feeding the hungry, clothing the poor, or educating the youth.

They care about forcing Christianity on people, hammering the 10 commandments into classrooms, banning reproductive choice, and driving non-Christians out of this country.

No interest in good deeds. No interest in making the world a better place. It is all about THEM. Forever and always. What THEY want. And NOTHING for anyone else.

Confused being in a toxic chemical haze with being honored.

but just "some people", "good Americans", etc.

These Christian Fundies gave djt a hand job in the oval office - really ?

How did Melania respond to this ?

At his age did they need to force feed him a fist full of the little blue pills ?

Next thing these clowns will want a 10 ton granite monument to the Ten Commandments out in the Rose Garden.

14. Y'know, from that photo, it looks like they're laying hands on a fake or a dummy with a wig.

On second thought, that's meta-redundant, isn't it?

That's also not a healthy looking person, just from the back view - even if that's a poor quality camera, there's something really off there, almost a "uncanny valley" vibe. No matter what I feel about the guy in the position, from that photo, there's no "there" there - nothing that seems living.

"I saw the photos from the ceremony today in the Oval Office, and was quite disappointed to hear that lightning did not strike the site. I am seriously considering a turn to atheism. I mean, what's it take, GOD?"

They are all white. What gathering of Christian religious people is all white? Who ever heard of a group of ministers with no black clergy? And they have no shame about it!

Well, maybe most of those people didn't kill anyone, but have little doubt they all broke at least 2/3 of them, the lying, stealing and adultery parts, especially.

31. I don't know if Trump has killed people either.

So at least 9 of the 10 commandments anyway. But if Trump is connected to the mob (and he most definitely is), then surely people who have worked for him have killed people.

35. What scripture says:


"And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full.
But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you." Matthew 6:5-6

You know, to make a sweet savor in the nostrils of the lord?

This would, of course, likely set off the fire alarms, to say nothing of making the SS crazy.
