President Donald Trump visited parts of Alabama on Friday to see the damage caused by a deadly tornado that ravaged the area last week. During the visit, people approached the president about signing their Bible.

Naturally, Trump granted their request. 

Some have made a big deal about the ordeal, but some religious leaders didn't have an issue with it. After all, past presidents have signed Bible and guess what? No one had an issue with it then.

“Though we don’t have a national faith, there is faith in our nation, and so it’s not at all surprising that people would have politicians sign their Bibles,” Hershael York, dean of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary School of Theology in Louisville, Kentucky, told the Associated Press. “Those Bibles are meaningful to them and apparently these politicians are, too.”

Bill Leonard, the founding dean and professor of divinity emeritus at the Wake Forest University School of Divinity in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, said it's a tradition for Bible's to be signed, especially in the Southern part of the United States.

Leonard said it would have been a different situation if this was done at a political rally but Trump was visiting a church.

“It would’ve been worse if he had said no because it would’ve seemed unkind, and this was at least one way he could show his concern along with his visit,” he said. “In this setting, where tragedy has occurred and where he comes for this brief visit, we need to have some grace about that for these folks.”

Of course, the Leftist mainstream media was absolutely outraged by the ordeal. 

People are the Right were quick to remind others that past presidents have signed Bibles as well. This isn't a new phenomenon by any means.

Here's the thing: I personally wouldn't ask the president to sign my Bible. I'd ask for a hat, t-shirt, maybe a picture or a book. But if you just experienced a horrible tragedy, if faith and hope is all you have left, then who cares? 

The mainstream media is always looking for something to be upset about, especially when it comes to Trump. It's ironic, and rather funny, that the Left is suddenly made up of moral, church goers who know all about religion and the Bible.
