First Baptist Dallas pastor Robert Jeffress strongly defended President Trump on Wednesday when he appeared on conservative radio host Todd Starnes’ show, according to the Dallas Observer, saying the biggest threat to today’s America is evangelicals who don’t support Trump.
“Let me say this as charitably as I can,” Jeffress said. “These ‘Never Trump’ evangelicals are morons. They are absolutely spineless morons, and they cannot admit that they were wrong.”
The pastor is, of course, talking about abortions.
“This is an issue of life and death. This is so black and white, so much about good versus evil. I don’t get it,” Jeffress said. “It really goes to the core of who we are as a country and what kind of a country we have in the future, and if we can’t get this issue of life right, I just don’t know where we’re going to go down the road.”
In 2015, Jefferess also blamed the September 11 attacks on abortion.
“What you’re seeing that Andrew Cuomo and others have proposed, it’s not only sinful and wrong, it is barbaric,” he said. “It is the sign of what Romans 1 in the New Testament calls a depraved mind that would allow that to happen.”
Jeffress refers to a law in New York that governor Cuomo signed, which gives women the right to abortion past 24 weeks of pregnancy with the recommendation of a doctor. Jeffress and other anti-choice activists, such as Trump, say that the law basically legalized infanticide, which is completely untrue.
Jeffress reasons that Christians who do not support Trump "are complicit with a regime of death in the same way some German Christians were complicit in the Holocaust."
“We cannot afford to be like German Christians who, in the rise of the evil reign of Adolf Hitler, just remained neutered. They remained silent. And you saw what happened there,” Jeffress said. “I think there’s a similar wave of godlessness that is rising in our country right now, and we must push back against that tide.”
