We already know God will judge us harshly if we “destroy” Donald Trump, but it gets much worse that, says televangelist Jim Bakker.
If Trump is impeached, he said yesterday, Christians are going to take part in an inevitable Civil War.
While criticizing calls to impeach Trump, Bakker said that such a move would lead to war: “If it happens, there will be a civil war in the United States of America. The Christians will finally come out of the shadows because we are going to be shut up permanently if we’re not careful.”
Religious Right activists said the same stuff when President Obama was running, and guess what? He didn’t take away their right to worship (or their guns or their freedom to speak out against him). Hillary Clinton was never going to do that either.
True liberals actually believe in the right to free speech, including speech they don’t like. And even if some future President tried to shut Christians up, it’d be groups like the ACLU (not to mention countless atheist activists) who would be on the Christians’ side.
But if Bakker said all that, people might not buy a Giant Bucket of Food. So might as well keep spreading that fear.
