During an online bible study this Sunday, right-wing activist and president of Abiding Truth Ministries, Scott Lively, said that Christians need to establish their own underground railroad to escape the burgeoning “beast government” in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.
“We need to be establishing a network of believers everywhere that can operate in an underground fashion,” Lively said in a video clip flagged by Right Wing Watch. “Because if this thing continues in the trend that it seems to be, we may be evolving here at a revolutionary speed [and] entering into an emerging Beast government.”
“We’re going to need to have something like an Underground Railroad in which believers who are fleeing persecution are going to be able to have some way of escape,” he said.
“If these people truly are intending to destroy America so they can bring in their global socialist system, or even a nationalist socialist system, then violence is appropriate in response in the most measured possible way. That’s the idea. If at all possible, you disarm the zombies trying to kill you without hurting them. But if it’s not possible, you do whatever is necessary to stop them from killing you and your family or putting you into slavery. That I believe is the duty of an American.”
