Far-right anti-gay activist and author Scott Lively is running for governor of Massachusetts, and one of his qualifications is apparently that he gets inside info on politicians straight from The Almighty.
During an appearance on the Point of View radio show yesterday, Lively claimed that he had received “spiritual confirmation” that President Trump has been transformed into a “man of God.”
As Right Wing Watch points out, Lively’s campaign for governor is centered around his unwavering support for Trump. During a campaign stop last month, he called Trump a “political genius” greater than Bill Clinton and declared him to be “God’s man.”
That support for Trump was reiterated by Lively on the radio this Thursday, along with the revelation of Trump’s divine transformation.
“I’m a strong supporter of President Trump,” Lively said. “I believe he was transformed from a somewhat reprobate New York liberal into a man of God, God’s man in the White House today.”
“I saw the transformation myself,” he continued. “I had a spiritual confirmation, sort of an endorsement of the idea. He has shown the example of speaking boldly and not being intimidated and not backing down on the things that are important and essential.”
According to Lively, Christians need to follow the example Trump has set.
“If Christians would simply follow that model,” they don’t have to be perfect in order “to stand up in the public realm,” he said.
“That’s how America will be restored,” he declared. “That’s how America will be made great again…”
