‘Christocrat’ says he’s taking over the US for Jesus: ‘I’ll rid Texas of every immoral book in the library’

Speaking at an event last week organized by the Texas Tea Party Republican Women, anti-LGBTQ activist and self-described “Christocrat” Rick Scarborough said he is trying to “take over America” for Jesus and is working to “expunge this entire state of every immoral book in the library.”

“They went after me as trying to take over the town, trying to take over America,” Scarborough said, speaking of the media. “And, in all honesty, I was, but I couldn’t say that. I mean, why not take it over for Jesus?

According to Scarborough, a poll said 68 percent of the teachers in Texas “now believe that the LGBTQ agenda should be taught and embraced.”

“We’re grooming our children for pedophiles. That’s what’s happening,” he said. “Now, let me tell you what I’m going to spend the rest of my life doing—and by God’s grace, if I can raise the budget and get people behind me: In four years, I want to expunge this entire state of every immoral book in the library. Call me a Nazi, call me a book-burner, I’ve been called worse.”
