    Default Is praying for trump while he preys on the poor theological malpractice?

    Kind of have to agree with this except that maybe praying for Trump to be a decent and good president and human being might be exactly what he needs! I will admit, I have not done it.
    Speaking on MSNBC, North Carolina NAACP President Rev. William Barber said the recent ‘laying on of hands’ and prayers by the Christian right for Donald Trump in the Oval Office borders on heresy. Rev. Barber says it’s religious hypocrisy to pray for people who are hurting the poor.

    [Rev. William Barber]: “It is a form of theological malpractice that borders on heresy when you can p-r-a-y for a president and others when they are p-r-e-y – preying on the most vulnerable. -you’re violating the most sacred principles of religion.”

    Rev. Barber quoted Biblical text to underscore his point.

    [Rev. William Barber]: “There’s a text in Amos Chapter 2 that says what religious and moral hypocrisy looks like when a nation of political leaders will buy and sell upstanding people, when they will do anything to make money, when they will sell the poor for a pair of shoes, when they will grind the penniless into the dirt and shove the luckless into the ditch and extort from the poor.

    Because you don't like someone it becomes religious hypocrisy according to the guest on MSNBC... That gets a double laugh,one to who made the statement and two to the cable station that aired it..

    Personally I am not agreeing with it. Seems anti-biblical to me. Thought the article would be a conversation starter.
