American First Lady criticized for recitation of The Lord’s Prayer

First Lady Melania Trump has come under harsh criticism following a recitation of “The Lord’s Prayer” during a rally in Melbourne, Florida.

During the campaign-funded rally, which was attended by conservative Republicans, Melania Trump began with a prayer, prompting many Democrats and far-left liberals to speak out.

Many claimed the prayer should not have been recited purely because church and state should remain separate, while others stated not all Americans are religious.

Some comments posted to Twitter cruelly attacked the First Lady personally with everything, including claiming she “sounds like someone getting cursed to become a ‘Dracula.'”

The recitation may have been in broken English, but she certainly had her heart in the right place.

Many ridiculed her for not having the prayer memorized. In the video, she is clearly reading the prayer but the cracks in her voice and expressions on her face reveal her true feelings behind them.

On Twitter @adrianshort wrote: “With an hour’s practice I could probably say the Lord’s Prayer better in Slovene than Melania Trump does it in English.”

@NicoleAngeleen wrote: “I could recite the Our Father backwards, drugged with a gun to my head. If you need to read this prayer, you’re not Christian.”

The criticism continued but Melania Trump remained above them all and has not attempted to respond.

    People should be ashamed of themselves. Like the priest said in “the song of Bernadette”. Prayer is good wherever it is offered

    A political or government event is NO place for prayer, sectarian or non-sectarian. See the first sentence of the first amendment to the US Constitution.

      Freedom of expression.

      The Constitution did not inhibit public displays of faith. At ratification, a majority of the thirteen several and sovereign states maintained official religions. The early Republic welcomed public worship. Church services were held in the U.S. Capitol and Treasury buildings every Sunday. The day after the First Amendment’s passage, Congress proclaimed a national day of prayer and thanksgiving.

    I am not for Trump, but I think this was knit-picking to pick on her for a prayer! This country needs prayer! Our country ancestors fought for religious freedoms ( the right to worship as each sees fit) not freedom from religion! If you don’t like prayer sit quietly and don’t participate.

    I would like to see a comment about the bishop in San Diego. Talking about separation of church and state! Something not right about this article.
