In what was probably one of his most bizarre and detestable segments yet, televangelist and doomsday prepper Jim Bakker used one of his grandchildren as a prop to help hawk his disaster-ready food buckets.
“If they kill our president or they destroy him or whatever, if we elect the other side, this is it. I think maybe Trump is here to give us time to get ready because all hell is going to break loose,” Bakker said.
“And we’re not going to have the Antichrist show up to get the sign of the Mark of the Beast on our forehead or hand, it won’t happen without hunger,” he continued. “Hunger is going to be the main thing. You don’t get it — most people don’t get it, they don’t want to get it, but that is why I am so obsessed with you all being prepared.”
Lori Bakker, Jim’s wife, then chimed in to talk about Christians who don’t think they’ll ever agree to receive the Mark of the Beast.
“One day, Jim was teaching many years ago … and he said, “The reason you’ll take the Mark of the Beast is because you’re hungry. Your children are hungry. Your grandchildren are hungry…'”
Later in the segment Jim brought out a baby who he said was his grandchild. Weeping, he said, “I hear them crying, I’ve heard them crying for years and God says, ‘What will you do if these babies are starving?'”
Buy more food buckets, of course.
