Moderator Frank Luntz asked Trump whether he has ever asked God for forgiveness for his actions.
"I am not sure I have. I just go on and try to do a better job from there. I don't think so, he said. ... I don't bring God into that picture."
Trump said that while he hasn't asked God for forgiveness, he does participate in Holy Communion.
"When I drink my little wine - which is about the only wine I drink - and have my little cracker, I guess that is a form of asking for forgiveness, and I do that as often as possible because I feel cleansed," he said. "I think in terms of 'lets go on and let's make it right.'"

He seems verrrry serious about the Eucharist/communion (depending upon what word you would like to use).
Cruz in 2016. Cruz will deal with the issues that need to be dealt with (border security), is just as conservative Christian as Huckabee is, will do a better job on military issues than Rand Paul, and can say what Trump says but uses words like they aren't a baseball bat.
IOW, one does not have to go PC to get a fantastic speaker like Cruz is (one who will deal with border security and so on) to get someone who can speak so much better than Trump can and yet will do what Trump wants done on border security and so on ---- without using words like a baseball bat.
Well I was raised RC and I promise you that referring to the Body of Christ as a ‘little cracker’ is about as offensive an insult as it gets.
Full title, as space would not permit: “When I drink my little wine ... and have my little cracker I guess that is a form of asking for forgiveness.”
Check this out.
Not sure that referring to the host as “my little cracker” is going to curry favor among conservative Catholics, myself included. There’s notable reverence in the act of Holy Communion, and to cast it down as “wine and crackers” is insulting.
Trump isn’t Catholic. Catholics do not refer to the Host as a “cracker”.
I would never vote for anyone because they were Catholic.
“Trump just locked up the Catholic vote.”
What’s THAT supposed to mean?
Trump also went on “The View” in 2006...talked about his daughter’s nice figure and said he would probably be dating her if he wasn’t her father.
What a statesman. What character.
Shame on you.
Well I watched it and Trump seems sincere. He has been attending church his whole life not just since last week. He takes his whole family and yet some of the total whacko birds on FR want to denigrate him as not being a Christian.
He’s not Catholic. He’s Presbyterian.
so how many groups can he offend this week? could be an interesting pool...
Check this out.
I’m Catholic too. Trump is Presbyterian as is my Mother. They drink grape juice and eat a cracker. He’s not lying.
Come on Norm....ease up a bit...
They use soup crackers and grape juice. The meaning of the ritual is all about the thought behind it and trump just said he does not ask for forgiveness.
Surely you jest. 3 times married?
Hey it’s 2017 now Cath. Incest is a lesser evil. In fact it’s perfectly fine. Just another expression like any other. Washing a car, Incest...you know. normal stuff. You arent one of those bigots are you?
Trump is a marveloooous candidate who makes wonderful deals, his ticket will be the best and most magnificent.
Marvelous, wonderful and magnificent quite a bit better than
hope and change!
If you want to get Biblical regarding communion, then you should read the Bible. No where did the early Christians eat a wafer - it was unleavened bread that they used. So, let’s vote for a RINO, who will roll over - just because they don’t use words like little cracker, etc. Good lands, we are doomed to ineffective, back-stabbking, RINOs because of things like this. I get it - Trump isn’t a solid Christian - he doesn’t claim to be. But, we aren’t voting for a pastor - we need a strong leader. Is Trump that person? I’m not sure at this point, but he is still in my top 3. I don’t care who took communion, where or when. I want this country turned around.
I still like Trump but his knowledge of the subject appeared rather weak.
It’s odd Frank Luntz would have asked that question. I am not sure if he knew something and wanted to derail Trump.
