(Tea Party PAC) – It doesn’t take much for President Trump to start a big stir with the mainstream media or any of the completely loony left-wing Kool-Aid drinkers who imbibe the fake news material these outlets pump out by the proverbial gallons, but it seems the commander-in-chief’s visit to a torched out church in Washington, where he posed for photos holding a Bible, has really set the fringe element within the liberal crowd off.
An Episcopal Bishop, Mariann Budde decided to phone in to CNN where she slammed and trashed the president for holding a Bible in front of the church without daring to ask for her permission. Can you believe these people?
This gal has apparently stopped taking her meds.
Here’s more on this from Gateway Pundit:
It’s not clear why this woman believes she gets to decide who can, and who cannot, carry a Bible.
DC Episcopal Bishop Mariann Edgar Budde: “Let me be clear: The President just used a Bible, the most sacred text of the Judeo-Christian tradition, and one of the churches of my diocese, without permission, as a backdrop for a message antithetical to the teachings of Jesus.”

But Bishop Budde could not let this go.
Later tonight she called into CNN to continue to lambaste on the President of the United States.

Bishop Budde is OUTRAGED at President Trump for holding a Judeo-Christian Bible without her permission!
She repeatedly referred to the violent rioters as peaceful protesters.
And she said NOTHING after criminals just destroyed the historic St. John’s Church.
So, if we’re all to understand this correctly, Budde has no problem whatsoever with violent criminal vandals burning down a church, but it sends her off the deep end of the peer that Trump held a Bible without asking for her permission?
Um, aren’t Christians supposed to want people to hold Bibles? Isn’t the whole point of the gospel to preach to folks the truth about the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, praying for them to repent and put their faith and trust in Him so they can be saved from the wrath of God?
If that’s the message of the Bible, and it is, wouldn’t you want Trump to be saved if you are a professing believer? Budde, it seems, hasn’t actually read the Book that is supposedly a guide for her faith. Just think, teaching the Bible is supposed to be her job, folks. This is insulting on a number of levels, some of which we won’t go into here because of the lengthy theological nature of the topic.
Regardless, Budde is nuts. There’s no nice way of putting it. She’s out of her gourd. Then again, isn’t that kind of the definition of Trump Derangement Syndrome?
