Raleigh, NC — The president of the North Carolina NAACP, Rev. Dr. William Barber II, was on MSNBC's "AM Joy," when he he spoke out against a recent photo of pastors praying for President Donald Trump. He referred to the act of praying for our president as a “form of theological malpractice that borders on heresy,” something many religious denominations, including the Catholic Church, consider a "grave sin."

"In the strongest possible terms, the NCGOP condemns the hateful actions of Dr. Rev. Barber, who cast tens of millions of people, of all faiths, who pray for the President, as sinners in a nationally broadcasted interview. As a pastor in North Carolina, Rev. Dr. Barber has crossed the line this time. Using his role as a supposed faith-based leader to falsely drive citizens away from praying for the good of our nation and our nation's president, is absolutely grotesque. The idea that it is a sin to pray for any individual, much less the commander-in-chief of our country, goes against any religious teaching that I have ever heard of. Rev. Dr. Barber is spreading a repulsive lie, and he should apologize immediately." - NCGOP Chairman Robin Hayes
