Thank President Trump for visiting church, JPII center

June 8, 2020

Dear Friends,

I hope you saw what President Trump did last week when he walked across the street from the White House and stood in front of St. John’s Church with a Bible in his hand. St. John’s is an historic church that, according to the Washington Post, is known as the church of the presidents,” since every chief executive since James Madison has attended at least one service there.

That Church had been set on fire by ungodly, violent people who hate America and what it stands for, and who hate us who are believers.

President Trump stood for us. He stood with us. He stood with the Word of God, on which our nation was founded, and said that we would overcome these enemies.

He and First Lady Melania Trump –a Catholic – also visited the Saint John Paul II National Shrine in Washington, on the day that the President signed an executive order prioritizing religious freedom in U.S. foreign policy.

The Knights of Columbus, who established the shrine in 2011, said that the visit to the shrine was appropriate, “given John Paul II was a tireless advocate of religious liberty throughout his pontificate.”

President Trump deserves our thanks for these historic actions, which symbolize in gesture what he is doing in fact: preserving our values against the Democrat Party and outside forces who hate these values and want to destroy them.

I’d like you to help me thank him for that.

Predictably, the Democrat Party and its left-wing wacko allies both in the government and even in Church are striking back. That’s par for the course. They have no arguments, so they just call names. Not knowing how to be leaders themselves, they have no appreciation of leadership when they see it.

Certainly you have heard that “protesters” were cleared from the park in front of St. John’s with tear gas to make way for the President.

Not true.

A violent mob, after receiving various warnings to disperse, was cleared away with smoke canisters precisely because they were violent.

Please take a moment to learn about the many actions President Trump has taken for religious liberty.

Please also read the speech the president gave last year at a United Nations meeting on religious freedom, in which he said, “The United States of America calls upon the nations of the world to end religious persecution.”

But despite everything he’s done, the media and even some in the church were outraged that the president and his Catholic wife went to the shrine.

What is going on?

Would they rather have the oppressive mandates that the Democrat Party wants to impose on believers?

Ironically, it was the Archdiocese of Washington that fought for its religious liberty against the Democrat President Obama’s HHS mandate right alongside with Priests for Life all the way up to the Supreme Court a few years ago, and the election of President Trump gave us victory in that matter.

How quickly we forget; how ungrateful we can sometimes be.

Millions of Americans of faith, including myself, were tremendously inspired by the president’s visit both to St. John’s Church and to the John Paul shrine. If you are one of these Americans, I’m asking you now to let the president know how you feel. And please let him know you are praying for him every day.
