So only Trump didn’t lie?

I know Obama and Michelle don’t believe in that creed - why were they saying it?

Apostles’ Creed? Wasn’t that the guy who fought “Rocky” in the movies?

Trump is a Protestant. I thought that the Apostles Creed was a Catholic prayer because it says “I believe in One Holy Catholic Church.”

So he wouldn’t take part in the farce.

Are we suppose to turn on him now?

Did I miss the memo?

Shouldn’t that make President Trump a Progressive elitist just like them?

Only Catholics and Eastern Orthodox say this prayer as far as I know.

Leftists are so cute when they pretend to care about anything religious.

“I thought that the Apostles Creed was a Catholic prayer...”

Small-c “catholic.”

The catholic Church is the universal Church of believers in the Lord Jesus Christ.

In the Creed, the word catholic is not capitalized. It does not refer, in this instance, to the Roman church (which is what Catholic means), but to a broad and universal christian church (which is what “catholic” means).

Some protestant churches recite it using small ‘c’ instead of capital ‘C’ in Catholic.
Or, they might sub the word ‘universal’.

“I thought that the Apostles Creed was a Catholic prayer”

I guess they have different versions.

From Wikipedia:

“It is widely used by a number of Christian denominations for both liturgical and catechetical purposes, most visibly by liturgical Churches of Western tradition, including the Catholic Church, Lutheranism and Anglicanism. It is also used by Presbyterians, Methodists and Congregationalists.”

Wow. They found something even less important than “two scoops of ice cream” to worry about.

Maybe he didn’t recite it because he doesn’t know it?
