First Lady Melania Trump fired up the crowd when she opened a political rally in Florida by reciting “The Lord’s Prayer.”
But what did top Christian leaders think about that?
Well, Fox News asked the most prominent Evangelical Christian leader, Pastor Franklin Graham, and he said he couldn’t be more pleased.
“When Melania did this, I thought to myself, ‘This is the first time in American history, its politics, as far as I know, that the First Lady stood and recited the Lord’s Prayer before she introduced her husband,’” Graham told Sean Hannity. “I thought it was tremendous.”
Graham couldn’t stop gushing praise for Melania as the most dignified First Lady that America has had in a long time.
“I was so proud of her, and I just couldn’t stop talking about it,” he said. “I’m as proud as I can be of our First Lady.”
Of course, Graham was not surprised by the anti-Christian liberal outrage that followed. In fact, Hannity’s segment was titled “Intolerant Anti-Christian Left.”
“The Left is going to attack…and try to do everything they can to beat up our president and his wife,” said Graham. “But there are millions and millions of Christians out there that stood behind President Trump. …and I certainly hope that the First Lady is not discouraged.”
