The Intellectualist reported yesterday that the White House is having cabinet level bible studies on a weekly basis. Hemant Mehta of “the Friendly Atheist” asserts that the pastor leading these prayer sessions, Ralph Drollinger, is an anti-LGBT, Anti-Woman and anti-Catholic bigot.
Mr. Drollinger believes that he has a biblical mandate (video) to educate politicians about his understanding of the Christian Bible.
Health Secretary Tom Price, Energy Secretary Rick Perry, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, Agriculture Secretary Sunny Perdue, CIA Director Mike Pompeo and Attorney General Jeff Sessions all attend the bible study classes according to Christian Broadcast News.
According to the Friendly Atheist:
“What’s really disturbing is that the man leading these sessions, Ralph Drollinger of Capitol Ministries, is a conservative Christian who has called Catholicism the “world’s largest false religion,” declared homosexuality an “abomination,” and said it’s “sinful” for women with children to serve in Congress.
If he has any influence over these politicians, he sure as hell isn’t making them more inclusive and tolerant. He’s not teaching them to care for the poor…”
Nothing pristine resides in the Trump White House.
