A man who believes in religious bullshit just called out another man who believes in religious bullshit for criticizing a man who believes in religious bullshit since he believes in the wrong kind of religious bullshit.
You may recall that, earlier in the week, Pastor Robert Jeffress delivered a prayer at the opening of the U.S. embassy in Jerusalem. That was a rather awful choice since Jeffress has said in the past that “you can’t be saved by being a Jew.” He still believes that. (So do all evangelicals.)
Jeffress has also said “Mormonism is a heresy from the pit of hell,” and that prompted Senate candidate and former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney to speak out against Jeffress, saying rather bluntly, “Such a religious bigot should not be giving the prayer that opens the United States Embassy in Jerusalem.”
That whole exchange infuriated BarbWire contributor Dr. Don Boys, a former Indiana legislator, who couldn’t believe Romney had the audacity to go after Jeffress.
Mr. Romney, how dare you call Dr. Jeffress a bigot when he is in the mainstream of orthodox Christianity while you are a member of an outrageous cult that peddles very toxic Kool-Aid!
At least wipe the purple Kool-Aid from your lips before condemning a major, respected Christian leader!
It’s true that Mitt Romney believes in a lot of crazy shit. But a Baptist preacher is in no position to mock someone else’s religious beliefs for being too “outrageous.”
