    All the presidents at the Bush funeral service together recited this core prayer

    All the presidents at the Bush funeral service together recited this core prayer. Except one.

    The Apostles’ Creed is one of the prayers most core to Christianity. It states in a few lines the basic narrative of Jesus’s life, is the statement of faith in one God and is said daily by Christians across the globe.

    On Wednesday, one Christian didn’t say it. And Twitter noticed.

    Video from the funeral of George H.W. Bush showed a front row of presidents at Washington National Cathedral, standing and reciting it along with the program, as the voice of Episcopal Bishop Michael Curry boomed through the speakers to the thousands of mourners. Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, Barack Obama and their wives glanced up and down from the programs they held in front of them and spoke the prayer, along with everyone else visible in the video. The program, as is typical, calls for the Creed to be said in unison.

    President Trump stood, with his hands folded in front of him, waist-high, the program in his left hand, his lips not moving. Melania Trump also did not speak, nor did she hold a program.

    1. He probably thought the Apostles Creed was that guy Rocky Balboa beat up…

    3. "Except one." Ok, so what. It's basically a superstitious incantation, isn't it?

    How many women died at the hands of Vatican officials during the Inquisition?  Which is something that, according to the Vatican, never happened.  !

    So pardon me if I don’t find Trump’s silence offensive.
