Trump Visits John Paul II Nation Shrine – Washington Archbishop Slams Him

Washington Archbishop Wilton Gregory published a June 2 statement after it became known that there is a scheduled presidential visit to the Saint John Paul II National Shrine this morning (local time). Here is the statement from Archbishop Gregory:

“I find it baffling and reprehensible that any Catholic facility would allow itself to be so egregiously misused and manipulated in a fashion that violates our religious principles, which call us to defend the rights of all people even those with whom we might disagree. Saint Pope John Paul II was an ardent defender of the rights and dignity of human beings. His legacy bears vivid witness to that truth. He certainly would not condone the use of tear gas and other deterrents to silence, scatter or intimidate them [the rioters] for a photo opportunity in front of a place of worship and peace.”

God Bless President Donald Trump
b Wilton is a disgrace.
DEFENSA DE LA FE
We as catholics need to sign a petition to President Trump apologizing for the words used by mccarrickan sodomite gregory who is not a catholic and donot represent our church. He is openly antichurch pro choice pro lgbt marxist.

Shut up
Gesù è con noi
Look who's talking: The apostate, pro-abortion Marxist and gay activist Wilton Gregory, an accomplice of the gay predator McCarrick. Here the mask of hypocrisy is dropped from this member of the Bergoglian sect, which opens the doors of the Church to be desecrated by sodomites, Muslims, shamans worshipers of Pachamama and abortion politicians. New Washington Archbishop Is a Flaming Liberal

DEFENSA DE LA FE
Sodomite gregory hates trump because Trump is pro life and Gregory is pro lgbt and pro choice and he offered a mass to cokie Roberts an abortist and he exhalted him.

Trump's not even a Catholic, and he planned to go there (some time ago) to sign an EO good for religious freedom.

Gregory accepted the charge of being the Archbishop of the capital, so he knew that demanded some neutrality. Not only partisanship.
Tesa
Gregory’s condemnation of the National Shrine is devoid of any sense or Christian sentiment.

Look at this to see more about the real farce: www.episcopalnewsservice.org/…/episcopal-leade…
Liberal clergy, whether they identify as Catholics or Episcopalians, try to separate love for God and neighbor from the necessity of keeping the Moral Law! Looting and destruction of private property are clear violations of the Moral Law! Governments not only have the right but also the responsibility…More

Follow along with me, Archbishop Gregory. So then, according to you, you ought to “defend the rights of all people even those with whom we might disagree” which would include the actions of President Donald Trump. If you do not defend the President’s rights then you are foolishly contradicting your own statement. What can we trust you to say that is not clearly inconsistent?

If you are unwilling to defend President Donald Trump because you disagree with his actions -- such as putting a stop to the rioting, arson, vandalism and wanton destruction of private property -- then what or who exactly are you willing to defend???

Perhaps the transgenders? 🤮

It's a case of "do as I say, not do as I do". Leftist rhetoric is rife with such contradictions.

"photo opportunity" - that is what bishops are familiar with.

To repeat here: Washington Archbishop Wilton Gregory calls Trump’s visit to John Paul II Shrine ‘reprehensible’

What do you expect from a Liberal Idiot?

Pope St. John Paul II was a strong proponent of upholding the Moral Law - and he would be totally opposed to all this destruction of private property, which has happened under the guise of a "protest" over the death of Mr. Floyd. The use of tear gas has become necessary due to the destructive elements that have taken over the understandable cries of the protesters.
giveusthisday
These protests are probably staged as false flags to allow for the imposition of martial law and to allow them to further their agenda. No doubt they both know that.

Those are predictable comments from a careerist mediocrity.

American President Donald Trump and Mrs. Melania Trump prayed in the Luminous Mysteries Chapel, which contains a first-class relic of Saint John Paul II.
The President is in great trouble: he has been caught up in the pandemic fraud, and now leftists are setting fire to his country and wanting to make him a murderer of the American people. A really big trouble! Humanly, there is no way out of this hopeless situation. Only intervention from above can put an end to this mess. POTUS seeks help in the best possible place: JP2 has the nickname ‘De labore Solis’ because his pontificate is associated with the formation and arrival of the Second Comforter, Paraclete. The Luminous Mysteries of the Holy Rosary announce the Paraclete, whom JP2 called at the Victory Square* in Warsaw on June 2, 1979. So President Trump prayed in front of the Black Madonna of Częstochowa exactly on the 41st anniversary of the JP2 prayer in Warsaw. An excellent portent!
