From Christian Today-
An Episcopal church in California in the US has stated it will not pray for Donald Trump by name.
This is because the name of Trump is considered to be a "trauma trigger" - and a risk to health and safety.
It is traditional in Anglican churches worldwide to pray for a nation's leaders. Church of England parishes regularly pray for the Queen and Episcopal churches in the US pray for the President and the Government.
"We are in a unique situation in my lifetime where we have a president elect whose name is literally a trauma trigger to some people – particularly women and people who, because of his words and actions, he represents an active danger to health and safety, says Mike Kinman, Rector of All Saints Pasadena in his blog.
He defends the Trump name boycott as justified because his church must be kept as "a place of safety from harm".
