“I am grateful for men of God like these,” Pastor Jeffress says of his public supporters, like Mike Huckabee, “who are willing to stand up and act like men rather than wimping out when it gets a little controversial and an inconvenient thing to stand for the truth,” Jeffress told his congregation Sunday.
“The love of God has no meaning whatsoever unless you understand the judgement of God, that all of us deserve,” Jeffress added.
Jeffress also defended his anti-gay, anti-women, anti-Muslim, anti-semitic comments.
“You know, it is an amazing thing to me that a church is called anti-semitic simply because we preach that everyone — Jew, Baptist, Catholic, Hindu, atheist, everyone — must trust in Christ in order to go to heaven.”
Yeah, that’s not anti-semitic at all… Right…
“It’s amazing to me that we’re called anti-gay, simply because we say sex ought to be between a man and a woman in marriage. Somehow that’s construed to be anti-gay.”
Yup. Sure is!
Any more questions, Pastor?
In a shocking wrap-up, Jeffress proclaims, “It doesn’t matter if you’re a Jew, a Baptist, a Catholic, a Muslim, a Hindu, a homosexual, an adulterer a thief, or a cheat — it doesn’t matter what you’ve done — you can be forgiven of your sins if you trust in Jesus Christ as your savior. That’s not a message of hate, it’s a message of hope.”
Jeffress’ comments were shared as part of today’s Focal Point, Bryan Fischer‘s radio show, during which he introduced the clip by calling Pastor Jeffress “now the most important man in America.”
This is where the radical religious right has landed.
The Bible is the absolute word of God, and must be taken literally — except for the parts they don’t agree with.
The Bible often calls for stoning to death a sinner. Do they agree with that? No.
The Bible calls for marrying your brother’s widow. Do they agree with that? No.
The Bible does not allow them to eat shellfish. Do they agree with that? No.
The Bible does not allow them to wear clothing made of two different threads (i.e., poly-cotton blends). Do they agree with that? No.
The list goes on and on, but Pastro Robert Jeffress has now been ordained “the most important man in America” because he upholds the Bible — well, the hate in the Bible these faux-”Christians” love.
