Trump's Oval Office Prayer Vigil Sparks Angry Backlash

Tuesday's release of photos of a chance encounter between evangelicals and President Donald Trump in the White House, which shows leading evangelicals laying hands on and praying for the president of the United States in the Oval Office, has touched off an angry backlash on Twitter and in the mainstream media.

CNN immediately tied the meeting to reports the administration has become unhinged following the latest allegations of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government, which authorities believe conducted a cyberwar and hacking campaign in a bid to disrupt the November election.

Those in attendance at the Oval Office meeting on Monday, however, reported the president was confident, collected, and in total control of his administration's agenda.

Author and evangelical leader Johnnie Moore posted an image of the group prayer to Twitter on Tuesday evening. In the image, Trump is seen with his head bowed and surrounded by faith leaders, some of whom are resting their hands on him, all in an attitude of devout prayer.

Moore says the president's visit with faith leaders was not pre-arranged, and included Vice President Mike Pence and top presidential adviser Jared Kushner.

The image immediately sparked an angry backlash, including allegations that Moore is somehow racist for having a better relationship with Trump than with his predecessor.

Others suggest the image symbolizes a dangerous erosion in the separation of church and state.

One particularly emotional post cursed Moore and "the disappearing line between church and state. It's 2017 people; magic is a party trick for kids."

So, now the famous painting of George Washington kneeling by his horse must be erased? I don't think so, LOL! ALL our founding fathers were very religious and prayed regularly for the success of our Country, and these whacks better be thankful they did!

Becoming POTUS has no requirement of quitting your religion, LOL!

This stuff puts a grin on my face. Wouldn't any person in their right mental state rather see "evangelicals laying hands on" a great president in the Oval office, than a possibly "diseased whore laying hands on" a president that would be married to a fat failed presidential candidate. One that President Donald J. Trump beat so bad it will never be know just how bad. This is my happy look.

All of that was okay, right??

There is absolutely no "separation clause" issues with this POTUS. He and his son-in-law are Jewish for crying out loud! Here he is meeting with Evangelicals. He has previously met with the Pope. He is representing ALL of the people in his Administration.

This borders on ridiculous. Obama was the anti-Christ and so anti religion that this is truly a breath of fresh air. This incident is akin to a football team taking a knee to ask for divine intervention for a safe game and unity. Obviously someone needs to better understand the true meaning of separation of Church and state; they don't get it.
