Sarah is awesome. Not sure why Trump is going, he is Catholic.
The President will be unable to attend, but will send a “navigator” to help Rev. Graham sign up for Obamacare.
Nope. Billy isn’t eligible...too old. He might get a pain pill, but that is about it.
Did Trump convert recently?
He was Presbyterian before.
I think he still is Presbyterian
I heard him talking a bit about attending Graham’s birthday on a local radio program and it sounded to me like he was going to try to get him to endorse Tea Party candidates in 2014 and 2016. I’m not even sure Graham endorses candidates.
You must have missed the memo. ALL wealthy people — no matter how old they are — are eligible as “valuable contributors.”
Trump has stated in interviews that he is a Presbyterian. In April 2011 on Human Events, he said that he is “a Presbyterian within the Protestant group”. In an April 2011 interview, on the 700 Club, Trump said, “I’m a Protestant, I’m a Presbyterian. And you know I’ve had a good relationship with the church over the years. I think religion is a wonderful thing. I think my religion is a wonderful religion.” A 2010 article in The Daily Telegraph stated that Trump was Catholic. A February 2011 Politics Daily article described Trump as “apparently a member of the Dutch Reformed Church, which is a Presbyterian denomination”. Andrew Cusack in 2008 stated that Donald Trump is a member of New York City’s Marble Collegiate Church. Explaining that church’s organizational relationships, Cusack says “the Collegiate Reformed Protestant Dutch Church is actually a denomination within a denomination” and that the Collegiate Churches are “now part of the Reformed Church of America”. Marble Collegiate Church also states that it is denominationally affiliated with the Reformed Church in America, with the RCA website stating that the RCA has a local church “presbyterian form of government”. Trump does not drink alcohol.
The “Dutch Reformed” church was actually founded by an Apache Indian chief.
Billy Graham endorsed Bill Clinton in ‘96.
