In a press release this Friday, the CEO of the far-right Christian media outlet Charisma News, gave his thoughts on the House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry against President Trump, saying their motivations originate from no other than the “pit of hell,” Right Wing Watch reports.
“The attacks are, in my opinion, from the pit of hell,” Stephen Strang wrote. “As a Christian, I believe that Satan is behind this. He is trying to steal, kill and destroy. And Donald Trump has been raised up by God to stop our nation’s headlong plunge into total depravity. It’s God’s mercy to America since we deserve judgment.”
According to Strang, Christians shouldn’t be surprised by “all these demonic attacks against the president,” because Satan “hates it when righteousness and religious freedom are championed.”
“No wonder he and his minions have focused their hatred at Donald Trump.”
“God raised up this man to lead our nation and I believe Donald Trump will win a second term to complete the work he started—because I believe God has spoken,” he continued.
Throughout the pro-Trump Christian cult, the notion that Trump is some sort of harbinger of Christ’s return is a common theme. From figures like Jim Bakker to Mark Taylor, their narrative that says Trump’s rise to the presidency was orchestrated by God is repeated almost daily and has now become accepted theology within their follower base.
“I believe God has a plan for America,” Strang declared. “And I believe He raised up Donald Trump to help accomplish that plan. I believe God spoke to prophets over the years, telling them that He would play ‘the trump card.'”
