Do you receive communion in the Catholic church? Get on your knees on the prayer mat? Talk in tongues at the Pentecostal church?

No, you don't. It would make you a hypocrite of the highest form. You wouldn't be a hypocrite, now, would you?

I am Baptist,I do not participate in Catholic liturgy at a funeral or wedding.
Those are things that have deep spiritual meaning to them but I don't believe the same dogma.

What would be disrespectful is doing something I reject theologically but they take great comfort in.
It would be hypocritical and almost mockery.

You really should not discuss things you have absolutely zero knowledge of or likely care about short of trying to make a stupid political attack.

You should actually be ashamed but suspect shame is not something ever in the mix.

Matthew 6:5-8

“And when you pray, you must not be like the hypocrites. For they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and at the street corners, that they may be seen by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you. “And when you pray, do not heap up empty phrases as the Gentiles do, for they think that they will be heard for their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.

In my upbringing to participate in Catholic or other denomination liturgy was not just inappropriate but considered wrong as we did not believe the same dogma.

I get that most of the ecumenical world does not care about that and no idea what Trump believes exactly but I would not participate either.

I would be respectful regardless as I would hope an atheist would be.

This thread is an exercise in colossal idiocy and thinking they understand things they have no idea about and likely hate.

Silly little clown shoes.

I miss the good trolls, you are a pale and empty imitation.

Go away now sweet cheeks, you don't even know what you are bitching about.

77. And if he had been praying or chanting

or praising the lord he'd have been mocked for being a hypocrite pretending to pray/sing/chant....

I'm not at all a Trump fan but sometimes I think he could cure cancer and these guys would be pissed he didn't cure diabetes first....

49. Christian Evangelicals don't recite the Apostles' Creed.

Most of them don't even know what it is.

WHY do you care how he mourns? Good grief, the guy can't even do that right.

You should be ashamed of yourself for this. But of course, this didn't come from your own observation, you heard it on the internets and decided to become enraged like a good little puppet.

62. Now you're pretending to know his thoughts?

That's just a little too involved if you ask me.

Seriously, if you see the world through Trump's eyes and actions, it isn't him with the problem...

You seem awful judgemental. Are you an evangelical Christian? Of course you aren't or you would understand how this works.

I'm sure there will be a dinner served. Keep us up to date on if he holds his fork incorrectly or if he asks for two ladles of gravy.

Thanks in advance.

Oh, did you notice the grumpy cat face of Hillary? Still got that sore loser look.

There are some good reasons to be critical of Trump; this is not one of those things.

56. Who said he was an evangelical Christian.

He may or may not b- that is for God to decide.

I did not vote for him because of his faith- but because he could get things done and at least sided with Christians.

The Obamas and Clintons at least make a fine show of their hypocrisy- Trump doesn't. He just plays it as he is!

86. I'm not getting it.

These other people are reading along to some mumbo jumbo looking like a bunch of idiots in my opinion and Trump is looking like a normal person - rather uncomfortable.

I don't have the religion receptor in my brain and it looks like Trump doesn't either. You can be good and moral, know right from wrong, without belonging to a religion. I do respect people's religious beliefs though and would love to find comfort in it as they do.

88. I'm not seeing this, LG.

Trump is no more a Christian than he is a conservative Republican. At this point in time, it is to his political (read financial) advantage to pretend to be both.

But participation (or non-participation) in liturgical rites is very much a matter of personal choice.

Hell, one could make the argument that not participating is one of the few non-hypocritical things he has done since assuming office.

89. Oh lookee, another NPC bullshit post!

Time to correct you and your hypocrisy yet again.

Bush's funeral was Episcopal. Trump is a Presbyterian and Melania is a Catholic. There are differences in liturgy and prayer such that most don't mindless yammer out the Creed's and prayers at a different denominational service.

As a Catholic, I have attended Episcopal services with my family but I do not participate at all. Their version of the Creed is different. I would never take Communion there. The Our Father is even different.

Trump is NOT an evangelical and has never claimed to be.

That you criticize him for this shows the utter banality and childishness of your position. You are a fraud. You are a damned hypocrite, especially in that you admit to reciting prayers and participating in services that you are not a part of formally. Your empty head simply regurgitates the latest social media propaganda. You are the perfect little vacuous NPC.

9. Fundamentalist evangelicals do not believe in creeds

They would be horrified if Trump had read the Apostles' Creed along with everyone else. "No creed but Christ" is their motto, and this includes all Baptists, Pentecostalists, Church of Christ (who won't even have instrumental music in their churches because they say the Bible doesn't mention it), various sects of the Church of God, etc. Here's an interesting article on the subject:

These are the Trump voters.
