Parishioners at a California Episcopal church will no longer pray by name for the president of the United States over fears the name "Donald Trump" might trigger microaggressions among sanctified snowflakes.

Mike Kinman, the rector of All Saints Church in Pasadena, broke the news to the congregation in a blog posting that was filled with all sorts of liturgical lunacy.

Well does he think that praying for the President in any fashion might be a microaggression? Unless his parishioners are just plain stupid I would think they would know who they were praying for. So what is the difference if his name is mentioned or not?

i’d say you’re not going to believe this, but in light of the last 30 or so years, there’s not too much we haven’t seen.

PING!

With apostates like Kimman, why bother attending such churches?

Most pastors would be embarrassed to tell the world that there are such weak minded people in the congregation.

But praying for a card carrying member of Jeremiah Wright’s racist circus was A-OK

I think for these people mentioning “God” in prayers will trigger “microaggressions”.

As a former Episcopalian, I can tell you that the Episcopal church been at the forefront of promoting radical leftist crap for a least a half century.

Whatever happened to “render unto Caesar . . .”? (Not that I’m equating Trump with Caesar).

No faith amongst that lot...

Fear is the enemy, the opposite of faith...

We are commanded by God to “Fear not !!”

Without faith it is IMPOSSIBLE to please God...Hebrews 11:6

Then by all means,contact the Episcopalian dignitaries and either they knock this crap off or encourage parishioners to leave the church and worship somewhere that our President-elect is respected. (WON’T BE CONVERTING TO METHODIST HOWEVER). This crap is why ppl leave churches!!

“What’s an ‘episcopal church.’”

It’s a weird coffee shop where the baristas have very strange uniforms.
