In an appearance on Lou Dobbs’ Fox News show this Friday, megachurch pastor and “spiritual advisor to the President,” Robert Jeffress, railed against all the usual things evangelicals rail against: lack of prayer in public schools, “liberal judges,” open borders, climate change “hysteria” — but what really has him angry is the potential impeachment of Donald Trump.
When asked how Christians will react to Democrats’ launching of a formal impeachment inquiry into Trump, Jeffress said that he’s “spoken to thousands of Christians” who are livid.
“I’m going to tell you that I’ve never seen Christians angry about anything as they are about the attempt to remove this president from office,” Jeffress fumed.
“They know that the only impeachable offense he has committed was beating Hillary Clinton in 2016,” he continued. “That’s the unpardonable sin from which the Democrats will never forgive him.”
Jeffress went on to share that he said to “thousands of Christians” at an event in Tennessee this week.
“I said, ‘I don’t like what these Democrats are doing to my friend, President Trump, but I really don’t like what’s going to happen to this nation if the Dems and RHINOS succeed in removing him from office,'” he said. “He is the most pro-life, pro-religious liberty, pro-conservative judiciary president we have had in history, and if he is removed, this country is finished. It is time for Christians to stand up and say, ‘We’re as mad as H-E-L-L, and we’re not gonna put up with this any longer!’ It’s time for every Christian, every conservative, to stand up and be counted. That’s what we call righteous indignation.”
Children are being slaughtered in Syria, but this is what Jeffress says has Christians the most angry.
