Washington DC Archbishop Wilton Gregory released a statement on Tuesday lashing out at the President of the United States for visiting the John Paul II National Shrine.
Clueless Archbishop Gregory lectured President Trump on “defending the rights of all people even those with whom we might disagree” while at the same time attacking him for visiting a Catholic Shrine.
President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump visited the Catholic Shrine before signing an executive order promoting religious freedom.
First Lady Melania Trump is a practicing Catholic.
The media failed to report this important detail in their hit pieces on President Trump.
Instead, Archbishop Gregory made the headlines because he LECTURED President Trump for visiting the shrine!
What a petty and disgraceful man.

Now there are reports that Archbishop Gregory is ordering Catholic Priests to dress in cassocks and protest President Trump on Monday in Lafayette Park.
This really is a stunning development by this wicked church leader!
Church Militant reported:
In a bald-faced violation of their individual civil rights as American citizens, Washington, D.C.’s Abp. Wilton Gregory is ordering his clergy to dress in cassocks (or at least blacks) and protest President Trump at 11 a.m. Monday morning at Lafayette Park, and then march to the White House at noon.
It’s being billed as a pro-life, anti-racism rally, but at least one email from the archdiocese to clergy being circulated (see below) explicitly calls it a “protest”.
Archbishop Gregory is a very dishonest man.
President Donald Trump is the most pro-life president in US history and Gregory is pretending his event is a Pro-life protest?
This same fool presided over a funeral last year where pro-abortion Democrat Nancy Pelosi delivered the eulogy.
