A 2015 video has surfaced showing then-Rep. Mike Pompeo, who is now President Donald Trump’s secretary of state, telling a church audience: “We will continue to fight these battles, it is a never ending struggle… until the Rapture.”
He’s referring to the “battle” against marriage equality. And, of course, he’s implying that the Rapture is a real thing and not just one of the more bizarre tales in Christian mythology.
It’s obviously frightening for a man with that much power — and the ear of the president — to talk about how the righteous (meaning people like him) will be saved.
It should be noted that the video is from 2015, long before Pompeo entered Trump’s orbit. In the speech, he also talks about the “evil” of homosexuality and multiculturalism. But none of this is news to anyone who’s followed Trump’s Cabinet officials. We knew last year that Pompeo, then Trump’s CIA Director, was taking part in the White House’s Bible study group run by Ralph Drollinger.
