Viral evangelist Josh Feuerstein, known for starting the Starbucks cup controversy, urging Christians to arm themselves against gay rights advocates and to “punish Planned Parenthood” and make its employees “fear for their lives,” is once again advocating violence to his millions of followers.
In a video posted to his Facebook page this Sunday, Feuerstein references the Dallas and Baton Rouge cop killings and seemingly calls out the Black Lives Matter movement.
“You want to know what the problem is — is that we have this movement in America that is absolutely degrading the lives of good police officers… Today, we’ve got kids that are growing up in these different homes where the parents are not respecting police or cussing them out and callin’ ’em pigs, telling kids not to trust ’em. That’s the problem!” Feuerstein said.
“Look, I’m calling on every American citizen — I love Jesus… I’m a preacher, but you know what?”
Josh then brandishes his handgun which he says is loaded with “20 rounds of pure brutality.”
“Look, I may love Jesus, but if I see you pull a gun on an officer — you want to know whose side I’m on? That’s right, I”m gonna fill you with 60 rounds of pure lead.”
From The Friendly Atheist‘s Hermant Mehta:
The problem isn’t that people don’t respect police. The problem is that many cops, when they’ve killed people for no rational reason, have been able to escape punishment for their actions. Black Lives Matter, and that movement’s allies, just want some justice. They want people to acknowledge what they’ve been through, and they want to see police take these issues seriously instead of turning a blind eye when their colleagues are part of the problem.
But Feuerstein, immune to critical thought, knows exactly what’s to blame for this lack of authority: Not enough Jesus.
