No, I don't agree. It is not for a public official to become directly involved in a protest against the government, no matter what policies are under consideration. An Epispicol priest at a church in Chicago has offered to allow protesters to stay on the lawn of the church as a safe haven for them.
I know that many conservatives claim to be Christians, while others never actually attend church but rush to the support of religion, even though they don't practice it themselves. If you can trick people into believing something on the basis of deception, so much the better.
