Trump Pastor: Without Evangelicals, America Would Be An Immoral Nation

Pastor Robert Jeffress said liberals dream of an immoral society.

One of President Donald Trump's spiritual advisers told FOX Business Network’s Lou Dobbs that conservative Christians are the only thing keeping the U.S. a morally-sound nation.

And Pastor Robert Jeffress is thankful to the president for helping evangelicals thwart liberals' evil plans for the America.

Via the Friendly Atheist:

It’s always open season on conservative Christians by the media. But let me tell you what’s going on here, Lou. The reason this is happening is: Liberals know that conservative Christians are the last speed bump on the road to the godless, immoral society that liberals dream of, and that is exactly why they are attacking them…

This is a new day in America, I believe, Lou. And we thank President Trump for creating a new atmosphere where people feel emboldened to share their faith.

Right, we don't talk a lot about Jesus on TV, and in politics because we were founded as a secular nation with a clear separation of church and state as stated in the constitution.

Exactly! And, Dobbs sang a completely different tune when he was on CNN until he got fired in disgrace for having illegal Mexicans working on his NJ farm after railing about illegals taking jobs away from Americans for years.

~ The Separation Of Church And Hate:

There is a good reason why Church and State must always remain separate. Let’s get something straight, right from the start: A theocratic state is not a free state, and never will be. I’m sure it was never Jesus’ intention nor was it His will that anyone should be dominated in His name, the name of Christ. That is the will of men. To be accurate, the concept in itself is anti-Christian. You can only follow Christ by choice, not by legislation.

It seems some people are more intent on casting stones at perceived sinners than propagating the love of Christ. ~ “Above all else, I command you love one another”. ~ This was the message that Jesus preached, and as far as I can see, the worth of a soul will only be measured as such. But I can assure you of one thing, when your time of judgment comes, you won’t be asked to recite scripture, but rather, if anything, the question will be: Did you get the message and live by it?

For all of you people out there on the religious right, you should try to remember that looking for sins to condemn, and people to persecute in the name of God, is simply Satan’s way of keeping you from seeing what is good and praiseworthy. It’s Satan’s favorite means of deceit; getting people to hate and kill each other in the name of God and Christ Jesus. Twisting scripture to incite hatred and division.

Understand this; that by doing so, you are defaming the name of Christ, associating Jesus with bigotry and hate. Jesus was never cursed with these feelings, these sins that you commit in His name. It’s widely agreed that He rose above it all, and to use His name for the justification of spreading contempt and hatred for anyone is true heresy. It isn’t Pro-Christ by any means, but clearly Anti-Christ.


~ It doesn't really seem to matter at this point whether you believe in God and Christ or not. What we have are Anti-Christians, the antithesis of the persona Jesus, and they are attempting, through legislation, to declare America to be a theocratic state and nation, legitimizing discrimination under the false guise of "religious freedom". If you're not one of the "chosen" you're fair game for persecution, oppression and abuse. It’s a perfect "us" and "them" scenario. If you express opposing views to the “Order” or you're a non-believer, or in any way perceived as a “sinner”, they'll be coming for you.

~ Anti-Christians ~ The scriptures flow as sweet as honey from their lips, seducing and robbing in the name of God. These are the ones Jesus spoke of that would come in the End Times and deceive many in His name. Anti-Christians: You will know them by their bigotry, their hatred, and their contempt for “others”.

Gary I wonder why you talk like this jesus dude was real? He might have been in your eyes but some of us don't buy into that dream. We require hard evidence for the claim of this special being...so far there is none. So just claiming he was real isn't going to cut it, it would be like saying Spiderman is real because I read about him in a book. Also, when a charactor performs miracles like the claims that this guy did, there better be some seriously hard evidence for those claims and there's not.

Will you please verify your statement? I'm sorry I'm a bit skeptical of your statement.

Separation of the church and state is nowhere in the U. S. Constitution. Please show me where it is.

With all the evangelicals getting busted for all kinds of weird sexual bullshit, money laundering, racism, homophobia, misogyny, I think I'll stick with tree hugging liberal folk.

First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States which reads: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof..."

None of Our Founding Fathers were "evangelical"!!!!!!

TheRealLizard, I am not a believer either, but if more Christians shared Gary’s belief system, we would be much better off. My primary issue is with those who wish to use their religion to control others. Gary appears to use his religious teachings to become a better person and do good in the world. Save your breath for those who want to take away our freedoms, not for those like Gary, who appears to be a Christian ally.

Oh I know. It's awful the way they'll gladly ignore bigotry, profanity, cheating on your spouse and adultery as long as the person involved supports their agenda, all while turning a blind eye to poverty and hung.....Oh. Wait.

Speed Bump? Evangelicals are the modern-day equivalent of the very same moneychangers Jesus chased from the Temple with a whip.

Jeffress, evangelicals aren't even a freaking rumblestrip. After your sect's shameless support of Roy Moore, you'll be lucky if your sect is a pothole on the Highway of Life in the next few years. Think you're being "persecuted" now? Just wait until America regains its sanity and helps Christ run you back out of the Temple.

Any man who tells me his skygod makes him a more moral person has to explain to me why their only reason for acting morally is because they are afraid of their skygod, not because they are innately moral people. I don't need religion. This pastor is WEAK.

Please, he supports serial adultery and documented lying so far removed from Jesus and the gospels. And though i don't believe in it, he can go to hell and i hope it's a cold, dark lonely place.
