Trump Wants Mass Back – Bishops Don't

US President Donald Trump said on May 22 that houses of worship are “essential places that provide essential services.” He added that “we need more prayer, not less.”

Trump is rarely seen in a church. “Some governors have deemed liquor stores and abortion clinics as essential but have left out churches and other houses of worship. It’s not right,” he insisted.

The Washington State Bishops (Seattle's Etienne, Yakima's Tyson, and Spokane's Daly) defied Trump in a statement the same day claiming that Masses were cancelled "not out of fear," but out of "our deepest respect for human life and health.”

The bishops claim a “desire” to bring people back to Mass “as quickly as possible.” But, “We will wait to schedule out public worship when it is safe and we are prepared to do so.”

Bishop Thomas Daly should (adored by many "Conservatives") have been ashamed to sign this.
Etienne of Seattle fosters one of the worst Catholic LGBT ministries worldwide. He did not stand by a school principal who fired same-sex married.

Trump's advisor/son in law, Jarrad Kushner was a life long Democrat. According to Wikipedia he also had dealings with George Soros'.
Catholics are meaningless to these people, money & control, that's all they lust for.
Life is in Christ, Jesus. All else moth's and rust destroy, thiefs steal, satan fools...

We know it already - by looking at his life style!

@Be Ye Separate @J G Tasan The left/right divide is a charade in terms of thinking one side is for us, none is. But they also are divided - Satan house is divided that’s why it will not stand. Red more elitist than blue. Also, Revelation - we are in that time - speaks of the horns turning against the whore of Babylon. This may be the start.
Here's an idea... try judging Mr. Trump by his own actions, his own words (like those in the topic), not those of his relatives by marriage. Almost forgot... it's "Jared", not "Jarrad". *sigh*

There's a reason why leftists are always sneering about "dumb right-wingers". Sometimes it's even true.
Zionist Trump wants your vote ignorant Christian. Both parties are compromised.

Hey Matt, I'll include you in my next decade of the Holy Rosary.
Almighty God bless you, brother.
Gotta love it. A non-Catholic is more "religious" than Catholic leadership. What's wrong with this picture? :P
If the bishops were fearless like Trump, the Church would conquer the world
Thank you President Trump Almighty God is very happy he let you be the president because you respect Him as our God and respect Our Holy Mass.
That is the problem, our Bishops are only concerned about the few years of temporal life, not the eternal years of the next life. Pray for them.
