Pastor Donnie McClurkin wants for Christians to stop protesting against Donald Trump and pray for him instead, reports the Christian Post.
“We need to know what our vote really means and how to utilize it. But I don’t want us to get caught up in this protest,” McClurkin stressed on Get Up! Mornings With Erica Campbell.
“The protests do nothing but rile [people] up. It causes people’s anger to rise up and it gives us a false sense of involvement,” he added.
Campbell disagreed—pointing out the obvious—that protests bring about change.
“It stops their progress. It makes the police have to respond and they have to spend money, they have to clear the streets and they have to organize,” she said. “So it makes them pay a little more attention…”
But McClurkin pushed back saying that despite him not voting for Trump because of his problematic stances on race and gender, he still believes that protest is not the answer.
“Now is our time to pray for him. This is the job of the church,” he said.
“Let the world protest but the job of the church now is to go into prayer and pray that, number one, he succeeds, because if he fails, we have to deal with the consequences as a nation.”
McClurkin isn’t the only Black Christian who believes that prayer is the best way to address Trump. Two weeks ago, Tina Campbell, a member of the popular gospel group, Mary Mary, said that supporting Trump is the “Godly thing to do.”
