If Christians fail to show up in record numbers next year to re-elect President Donald Trump, they will deserve every ounce of persecution doled out by the Democrats, Ralph Reed of the Faith and Freedom Coalition warned this week.
The religious right activist said Trump deserves the support of America’s Christians because of his actions regarding Israel and his conservative judicial appointments, according to Right Wing Watch.
Reed made his remarks while speaking with Stephen Strang, who said “life as we know it as Christians” would be changed forever if Trump does not win a second term.
“It’s going to be bad news, and Christians have to realize that they cannot be complacent,” Strang said. “[Trump] is our champion and he has come through on his promises again and again, and we’ve got to get him back into a second term to finish what he’s started and also to stop the other side.”
Reed agreed: “If the Christian community doesn’t rise up like it never has in modern political history and if we allow, through our inaction, the left to remove this man from the Oval Office, then we will deserve everything that we get.”
He continued: “If they get the White House back, it will be open season on Christian ministries, on churches, the IRS will be able to persecute those faith-based organizations again. They will, under Obamacare, be able to force them to pay for abortion again. They will be able to sue the Little Sisters of the Poor and drag God-fearing nuns into federal court again to make them pay for abortion. That’s what will happen, and if we don’t turn out and vote in the biggest numbers ever, then we deserve it to happen.”
