Episcopal bishop on President Trump: ‘Everything he has said and done is to inflame violence’

Image

https://www.washingtonpost.com/religion/bishop-budde-trump-church/2020/06/01/20ca70f8-a466-11ea-b619-3f9133bbb482_story.html

By
Michelle Boorstein and
Sarah Pulliam Bailey
June 1, 2020 at 8:08 p.m. PDT

The Right Rev. Mariann Budde, the Episcopal bishop of Washington, was seething.

President Trump had just visited St. John’s Episcopal Church, which sits across from the White House. It was a day after a fire was set in the basement of the historic building amid protests over the death of George Floyd in the custody of Minneapolis police.

Before heading to the church, where presidents have worshiped since the days of James Madison, Trump gave a speech at the White House emphasizing the importance of law and order. Federal officers then used force to clear a large crowd of peaceful demonstrators from the street between the White House and the church, apparently so Trump could make the visit.

“I am outraged,” Budde said in a telephone interview a short time later, pausing between words to emphasize her anger as her voice slightly trembled.

She said she had not been given any notice that Trump would be visiting the church and did not approve of the manner in which the area was secured for his appearance.

“I am the bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Washington and was not given even a courtesy call, that they would be clearing [the area] with tear gas so they could use one of our churches as a prop,” Budde said.

She excoriated the president for standing in front of the church — its windows boarded up with plywood — holding up a Bible, which Budde said “declares that God is love.”

“Everything he has said and done is to inflame violence,” Budde of the president. “We need moral leadership, and he’s done everything to divide us.”

In a written statement, Presiding Bishop Michael Curry, head of the Episcopal denomination, accused Trump of using “a church building and the Holy Bible for partisan political purposes.”

“This was done in a time of deep hurt and pain in our country, and his action did nothing to help us or to heal us,” Curry wrote.

“The prophet Micah taught that the Lord requires us to ‘do justice, love mercy and walk humbly with our God,’ ” he continued, calling on Trump and others in power to be moral. “For the sake of George Floyd, for all who have wrongly suffered, and for the sake of us all, we need leaders to help us to be ‘one nation, under God, with liberty and justice for all.’ ”

Budde and Curry are among the pantheon of progressive religious leaders who have long been critical of Trump’s political agenda. The Episcopal Church’s policies include supporting abortion rights, refugee resettlement, an expansion of health care and other issues that Trump has opposed or not embraced. According to the Pew Research Center, 49 percent of Episcopalians are Democrats or lean Democratic, compared with 39 percent of church members who are Republican or lean Republican.

Trump’s longtime religious allies, who are far more conservative on both domestic and foreign policy, saw his walk to St. John’s much differently. “What kind of church I need PERMISSION to attend,” tweeted Pastor Mark Burns of South Carolina after Budde and others said Trump should have let them know he was coming. “Jesus welcomes All.”

Johnnie Moore, a spokesman for several of Trump’s evangelical religious advisers, tweeted favorably about the incident as well.

“I will never forget seeing @POTUS @realDonaldTrump slowly & in-total-command walk from the @WhiteHouse across Lafayette Square to St. John’s Church defying those who aim to derail our national healing by spreading fear, hate & anarchy,” he wrote. “After just saying, ‘I will keep you safe.’ ”

Trump did not enter St. John’s on Monday evening. No one associated with the church was present for his visit.

Andrew Whitehead, a sociologist at Clemson University who studies Christian nationalism, said the president’s appearance was an attempt to promote the idea of America as a distinctly Christian nation after his Rose Garden speech.

“Going to the church, not going in it, not meeting with any clergy, holding up a Bible, but not quoting any scripture, after an authoritarian speech, was about using the religious symbolism for his ends,” Whitehead said.

“It was a signal to the people that embrace the idea of a Christian nation, that he will defend Christianity in the public sphere,” Whitehead said. “He said he’ll make America safe. That raised the question, for whom? It’s largely for white, mostly Protestant America.”

Budde — who spent 18 years in as a rector in Minneapolis before being elected bishop of the Washington diocese — said the Episcopal Church disassociates itself from the messages offered by the president.

“We hold the teachings of our sacred texts to be so so grounding to our lives and everything we do,” she said. “It is about love of neighbor and sacrificial love and justice.”

Following a tradition set by President Franklin D. Roosevelt, Trump attended a service at St. John’s before his swearing-in ceremony in 2017. He visited the church again that year to mark a national day of prayer for victims of Hurricane Harvey and in 2019 on St. Patrick’s Day.

Budde said she learned he was headed back to the yellow, 19th-century building on Monday by watching the news.

“No one knew this was happening,” she said. “I don’t want President Trump speaking for St. John’s.”

The Rev. Robert W. Fisher, the church rector, said he felt blindsided by the visit. Usually, the White House gives the church at least 30 minutes’ notice before the president comes by.

“We want St. John’s to be a space for grace, as a place where you can breathe,” he said. “Being used as a prop, it really takes away from what we’re trying to do.”

Earlier in the day, Fisher said, he and other clergy were outside the church handing out water bottles and granola bars to protesters, and expressing solidarity with their cause. He said he left the area to be interviewed on television about the damage from the fire the previous night and later watched images of the protest being dismantled “with disbelief.”

Fisher, 44, became the rector of St. John’s in June 2019 and has not yet hosted a presidential visit. The church usually draws about 400 people on a typical weekend. But it has been closed since mid-March due to the broad shutdown restrictions in place to combat the novel coronavirus.

Damage to the building from Sunday night’s fire and vandalism will cost at least $20,000, Fisher said. But he said the destruction should not become the focus of what has been happening in the streets outside the White House.

Fisher said that when people have talked about the church being burned, he has tried to redirect them, saying it was likely one person who does not represent the majority of people protesting.

“That has pulled away from the more important message that we have to address racism in this country,” he said.

Trump's poll numbers among evangelicals have been dropping. In the 2016 election, that group was a cornerstone of his "base." But according to a new AP poll, evangelicals are evenly split about whether they approve or disapprove of Trump's recent job performance.

If the numbers continue like this, Trump's doomed.

That's probably the reasoning behind this lame stunt...

In the 2 previous days, Trump experienced a little break. The numbers were dropping (638 and 730).
Now they're back to 1,134 today.
108,059 total. Soon, it will surpass 116,516 which is the total of american deaths in WW1.
Incompetence can goes a looonnng way !
And so Trump fans have been silenced here.

You wouldn't believe how glad I am that I'm not as ignorant as you .

While you gloat over the covid deaths that have happened and try to blame Trump , and at the same time don't condemn the looting and destruction , while spreading a death sentence for some , you look like a complete fool.
You embrace the fact that people are not ' self isolating ' during these protests and riots , even though countries around the world have proven that it can curb the spread of the virus , only shows the shallowness pf your tunnel visioned thinking.
You , and others , on here have been posting for months about a foreign virus that was allowed to travel around the world but , you somehow blame Trump.
How simplistic can you be in that thinking ?
Meanwhile , while people like you never offer solutions , you seem to be in lockstep with Joke Biden and the democratic party even though the facts state that most of the covid deaths are in Democratic run cities often in states run by Democrats.
Couple that with the fact that most of the so called protests and damage have been done in Democratic run areas.

Yep . you wouldn't believe how glad I am.

Pedro, you're the ultimate fool !

First, to be glad to see his own country in that mess is surely not a sign of being very smart, more being very dumb...

It just can't get through your mind that the whole COVID-19 situation in USA has been worsened because of trump's attitude.
Talk about a month and a half lost.
You're blind if you don't admit it, at least, secretly to yourself, while no one's watching.
"Only a hoax" he said. And you, dumbass, followed him on that path.
BTW, what does Trump's ass tastes like ?
Why don't shoot yourself some Hydroxychloroquine ? Trump said it's good.
Honestly, aren't you tired to defend that mockery of a President ?


You care about what, 5% (?) of protesters who did looting and destruction but not a word about the 95% who did protest peacefully.
Nothing right will ever enter your mind ? The house's burning, you go mow the lawn.

And where did I write that I embrace the fact that people are not ' self isolating ' during these protests and riot ? Show me where.

And, listen carefully stupid... We don't blame Trump for the virus, we blame Trump for his lame gestion of the virus.
That's a "nuance" you will never get. All those subtilities elude you on a permanent basis. Thick as a brick.

Oh, and I'll offer you a solution : GET RID OF TRUMP. Oh, gosh, you don't like it. You prefer to see Americans die.
Are you saying "Bring some more" ?

More deaths in the Democrat cities ? Sure ! These states have the most populated cities connecting to the rest of the World.
It can't be in Beverly Hillbillies cities of the Red states. (sorry folks, but the big cities are mostly not there).

You made me laugh with "Couple that with the fact that most of the so called protests and damage have been done in Democratic run areas". Seriously ? You think those Rep states will protest "en masse" against their beloved assholes ?
It takes eyes to see and judgment to realize what's going on. There seem to be more of that in the Democrat states. Killing a Black seems to be OK in the red states, nothing to make a fuss about. Do you have a heart Pedro ? I know you don't have a brain, but a heart ?

How did you like that stupid stunt of Trump holding a Bible ? He never set foot in a church. It fooled nobody. It just made the Whole World laugh at him. And thus we laughed at you too.

PEDRO, YOU CHOSE TO BE STUPID. Don't blame me !

Hey, one more time for you !

It seems you liked it the first time
