During a speech for the Faith & Freedom Coalition, evangelical radio host and pro-Trump conspiracy theorist, Eric Metaxes, says people worry about a Christian theocracy are needlessly stressing themselves out.
“This nation was founded by Christian people,” Metaxes said in a video clip flagged by Right Wing Watch. “And the reason we are essentially a Christian nation is because as true Christians, we believe we don’t want a theocracy. We want freedom. We want any atheist, every Jew, every Muslim, anybody, to be welcome here because that is at the heart of the Christian faith. We cannot force our faith on anyone. That is idiotic.”
“Many have done it in the past,” Metaxes continued. “There are many radical Muslims trying to force their faith on people right now, there are many radical atheists in nations like China and North Korea trying to force their faith on people — a true Christian says, ‘Faith is free, belief in Jesus can never be coerced, it is a gift from God’ — so if maniacal Christians took control of this country, they would make it safe for everybody else to be a part of this country.”
“So, do not fear theocracy, folks,” he said.
