The Right Rev. Mariann Budde is "outraged." "I am the bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Washington and was not given even a courtesy call, that they would be clearing [the area] with tear gas so they could use one of our churches as a prop." https://t.co/vmLWhjlIlp
@kylegriffin1 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."

@kylegriffin1 Trump says he wants to use the military to protect innocent Americans, but to do his big photo op at the church, he had his folks push, slug, tear gas & shoot rubber bullets at innocent, peaceful protesters exercising their First Amendment rights.
