Donald, Melania Trump Don't Recite Apostles' Creed or Sing Hymns Unlike Obamas, Clintons at George H.W. Bush Funeral
CNN commentator Keith Boykin posted a clip of the moment, writing about Trump alongside the video: "This is your 'Christian' evangelical president."
So freaking what? Since when did CNN become concerned about the intricacies of "Christian" funeral services? Guess what. I've gone to church and to church funerals for over 45 years. Never once have I recited the Apostles Creed, either in church or at a funeral. I'm sure lots of folks have, because their denomination does it that way. I'm also sure that lots of other folks haven't. It's not a big deal, to any Christian I know.
The way the media is freaking out you'd think Trump was doing the Macarena during the eulogy. Obama knew the words, the Clintons knew the words. They sang a hymn. Our first Muslim president is a better Christian than Trump. Blah, Blah, Blah.
There are a lot of people who are better Christians than Trump. The same thing could be said of me or of you, or of just about anybody. It's the height of hypocrisy for the news media, arguably as anti-Christian an industry as there is, to complain about a man not reciting a creed that not all Christians profess, and not signing a hymn at a funeral.
I've been to funerals preformed at different churches. If I don't know what to do, I sit, stand or kneel along with everyone else. If I don't know the words to what they are reciting or singing or praying I'm quite and respectful. Which is what I saw Trump doing in that video. It's what I would have done. I'd bet that its what most every other polite person in America would have done in the same situation.
No mater what would have happened at Bush's funeral, Trump would have been the target of fake news mud slinging.
