President Donald Trump‘s former pastor seems skeptical of his public affection for bible study in recent years, calling it out as inauthentic. After the President lauded a Fox & Friends segment he saw about the option of ‘Bible Literacy classes’ being introduced to state schools, Pastor David Lewicki slammed his former churchgoer’s “hypocrisy” on Twitter earlier this week and said Trump never attended bible study.
“He was not an active and visible member of the church, no,” Lewicki, who is now a pastor in Georgia, told the Huffington Post. This isn’t the first time a member of Marble denied to the public that Trump was an active churchgoer. In 2015, after Trump name-dropped Marble as his longtime place of worship, the church told CNN in a statement that he was not an active member.
I was @realDonaldTrump‘s pastor for 5 years @MarbleChurch. I assure you, he had the “option” to come to Bible study. He never “opted” in. Nor did he ever actually enter the church doors. Not one time. https://t.co/hf06e6LyRz
