LOUISVILLE (PNS) – It is a fact that Donald Trump was baptized in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). However, there is no factual evidence that Mr. Trump currently holds membership in any local congregation. Therefore, the discipline process that would be necessary to remove him from membership is not applicable.
The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) has already addressed Mr. Trump’s statements about Muslims and Syrian refugees in an open letter to him. We continue to advocate for a gracious welcome to families fleeing violence in their homeland. We continue to urge all Presbyterian congregations to work to host families and advocate with their governors to not put roadblocks in the way of these families.
