Every President Recited The Apostles’ Creed Except Trump, And People Definitely Noticed

Image result for Trump not reading the Apostles Creed

People on Twitter are calling out President Donald Trump for failing to recite the Apostles’ Creed at the funeral for former President George H. W. Bush on Wednesday.

Footage from the event shows much of the church, including the former presidents seated with Trump, standing to recite the profession of faith.

Trump and first lady Melania Trump stood, but did not recite the creed, which was written in the program, nor did they sing the hymns.

  1. This is worth a listen to folks. I have a yank mate of over 30 years in L.A, we’ve visited each other on a few occasions, he thinks Trump is the bees knees and can’t see anything dodge. he thinks America is going to be great again. He’s a genuine believer and I fear that when it all goes pear shaped he wont know what to do. I like a lot of what the Don has said and done, you have a leader who has bottle, and aint afraid to give it large unlike our weak PM and parliament ( most of em ). But he is going to bring such judgement on your country, especially of he divides Jerusalem.

  2. We noticed this as well. And wondered why they did not recite it.
    But we also noticed that the whole Apostle’s Creed was read and spoken correctly. Hell was included in the Creed in both the Washington service and The Texas one. Maybe these 2 pastors are more conservative than most.?? I know that here in Maine there is at least one Episcopal church that is not “liberal” . This is what was said at the 2 funeral services. It is is the creed I grew up saying in the Protestant denomination. I think it is the correct one.
    Apostles’ Creed

    1. I believe in God the Father, Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth:

    2. And in Jesus Christ, his only begotten Son, our Lord:

    3. Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary:

    4. Suffered under Pontius Pilate; was crucified, dead and buried: He descended into hell:

    5. The third day he rose again from the dead:

    6. He ascended into heaven, and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty:

    7. From thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead:

    8. I believe in the Holy Ghost:

    9. I believe in the holy catholic church: the communion of saints:

    10. The forgiveness of sins:

    1l. The resurrection of the body:

    12. And the life everlasting. Amen.

    1. Loy,
      I attended a Lutheran church with my Mom growing up. I used to love reciting The Apostles and Nicene Creed. What’s interesting is the version I recall reciting is slightly different even than what you shared…I distinctly recall that the word “Catholic” was not part of it back then and something akin to the following was — “one holy and apostolic church”

      1. Hi h2on2wine,
        The catholic in the creed is lower c. It means the Christian church at all times in all place not the Catholic church. I was always confused by that till I looked it up. : )
        I think you might be remembering the Nicene Creed? In the Reformed Church that creed includes the same words as the Apostle’s Creed but adds the catholic and apostolic church. Again the catholic here meaning universal in the sense of Christians at all times in all places.
        This is that creed; We believe in one God,
        the Father almighty,
        maker of heaven and earth,
        of all things visible and invisible.
        And in one Lord Jesus Christ,
        the only Son of God,
        begotten from the Father before all ages,
        God from God,
        Light from Light,
        true God from true God,
        begotten, not made;
        of the same essence as the Father.
        Through him all things were made.
        For us and for our salvation
        he came down from heaven;
        he became incarnate by the Holy Spirit and the virgin Mary,
        and was made human.
        He was crucified for us under Pontius Pilate;
        he suffered and was buried.
        The third day he rose again, according to the Scriptures.
        He ascended to heaven
        and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
        He will come again with glory
        to judge the living and the dead.
        His kingdom will never end.
        And we believe in the Holy Spirit,
        the Lord, the giver of life.
        He proceeds from the Father and the Son,
        and with the Father and the Son is worshiped and glorified.
        He spoke through the prophets.
        We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic church.
        We affirm one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
        We look forward to the resurrection of the dead,
        and to life in the world to come. Amen.

        1. Yes, Loy, I think that is the Nicene creed that I recall.

          Wow, didn’t know about it’s ties to the Universal Church – does that then also indicate a Parallel to Unitarianism?

          1. Hi, I believe that it refers to the church universal not the Universal church. I maybe mistaken but that is the way I have always learned it. : )

  3. Please note that the anglican[episcopal church in the US] have removed the word HELL IN THE
    Jesus ascended to the DEAD. So what else is new in the mainline churches.
