Though it has been pretty much ignored by the mainstream media, word nevertheless recently emerged from the White House of a special weekly meeting that has been taking place and involves some rather prominent members of the administration that has a certain segment of the liberal population hopping mad.
That particular portion of liberals would be the anti-religion atheists, and the meeting they’re simmering over is a weekly Bible study involving several members of President Donald Trump’s cabinet. According to CBN, it’s believed to be the first such Bible study in the White House in over 100 years.
“These are godly individuals that God has risen to a position of prominence in our culture,” explained study leader Ralph Drollinger of Capitol Ministries.
And Drollinger particularly highlights the role of Vice President Mike Pence in assembling the group.
“I don’t think Donald Trump has figured out that he chained himself to the Apostle Paul,” Drollinger told CBN.
According to Drollinger’s bio, he was a former college and NBA basketball star who was the first player to participate in four NCAA Final Four tournaments with UCLA, winning two of them under legendary coach John Wooden. He later played with the NBA expansion Dallas Mavericks after spending a few years playing with “Athletes in Action,” a group that tours the world and preaches the gospel during their games.
Following his basketball career, Drollinger continued on his path in sports ministry and eventually founded Capitol Ministries in 1997. The group established itself in Washington in 2010, and now hosts Bible studies in 24 foreign countries, 40 state capitals, the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives, and now the White House.
CBN reported that regular attendees of the weekly cabinet Bible study included Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue, Energy Secretart Rick Perry, CIA Director Mike Pompeo, Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price and Attorney General Jeff Sessions, among others.
Naturally, irate liberals hearing the news on social media let loose with vicious mockery.

Some even tried to imply the practice was unconstitutional — or at least discriminatory.
White House Bible Study should be a problem.
1. Separation of Church and State;
2. Representation for ALL religions.

But that’s just a continuation of the contempt for — or deliberate misunderstanding of — the idea of Christianity actually playing an active part of American conservatives’ lives. Remember the outrage that blew up around the vice president at the idea that he honored his marriage by limiting his time alone with women who are not his wife?
A standing invitation to the Bible study meetings has been offered to Trump, CBN reported, and though he has yet to attend due to his jam-packed daily grind, he is delivered a copy of the weekly lesson after the meetings. Vice President Mike Pence helped sponsor the meetings, and plans to attend whenever his schedule will allow.
“It’s the best Bible study that I’ve ever taught in my life,” Drollinger told CBN. “They are so teachable; they’re so noble; they’re so learned.”
And Drollinger thinks they’re good for the country.
“I just praise God for them,” he told CBN. “And I praise God for Mike Pence, who I think with Donald Trump chose great people to lead our nation.”
This is pretty incredible, and though the anti-religionists would vehemently disagree, those of us with even a modicum of faith realize that the men and women that have been placed in charge of various aspects of our government could use all of the spiritual guidance and support they can get in order to cope with the heavy burdens they shoulder in turning our nation around.
