NAACP leader Rev. Barber says praying for Trump ‘borders on heresy’; NCGOP ‘outraged’


Recommended Posts


Religious leaders gathered in the Oval Office laid hands on President Donald Trump to pray that God gives him guidance, wisdom and protection.

A photo of the gathering made the rounds on social media but didn’t sit well with the Rev. William Barber II, president of the North Carolina NAACP.

On MSNBC’s “AM Joy” on Saturday morning, Barber called the prayer “theological malpractice bordering on heresy.”

“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,” Barber said. “You’re violating the most sacred principles of religion.”


Don't pray for the President? Or just the presidents you don't agree with?
