Officers tear-gas peaceful protesters ahead of Trump photo op

Federal law enforcement officers used tear gas and flash grenades to disperse peaceful protesters at Lafayette Square across from the White House on Monday so President Trump could walk to the historic St. John’s Church to pose for photos.

Trump stood in front of the church, boarded up after a Sunday fire, and held up a Bible after a speech in which he threatened to deploy the military anywhere authorities don’t end looting and violent protests over the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody.

The story is being pushed by The Washington Post  and  The New York Times as well as PBS. Over the years I have found the tolerance level of Episcopal Bishops to be very limited yet they continue to ask others of different domination’s to be tolerant of them. The left always wants the world one sided.
