Here’s what we know about the Equality Act, which adds non-discrimination protections for LGBTQ people to federal law: It was passed thanks to every Democrat in the House and it won’t even get a hearing in the Senate because of Mitch McConnell and the bigotry of the Republican Party.
But that won’t stop some preachers from calling on God’s help to put a stop to the Act before it gets any further… which means they’ll give God credit for the already-determined outcome.
George and Terri Pearsons also blamed Satan for the mere existence of the Equality Act. They recently said this to the congregation at Eagle Mountain International Church in Fort Worth, Texas.
Here’s Terri, the daughter of private jet-loving televangelist Kenneth Copeland:
“[Those politicians who support the Equality Act] lust and thirst after pure anarchy that they might satisfy the desires of their own flesh and their own perversions and their own twistedness,” she preached. “The devil is ram-rodding them, Lord. He’s ram-rodding them and driving them … And so Lord, we lift them all up to you, and we ask you, Lord, for an intervention. We ask you, Lord, for an emergency intervention with this H.R. 5.”
“We pray over our Congress in the name of Jesus,” Pearsons added. “Together we take a stand of faith, and we tell you, devil, you can’t have our government, you can’t have our Congress. You can’t have it. You can’t have it. You can’t have it. You can’t have it. You can’t have it. You can’t have it. You can’t have it now. You can’t have it. You can’t have it. We said, you can’t have it.”
Also, phrasing… I have no clue how she knows about Satan’s kinks.
George Pearsons later came out to blame Satan even more for this piece of civil rights legislation.
“It’s Satan’s last stand to steal a nation,” he said. “He’s the very spirit of perversion, abortion, and everything that is godless and evil and twisted. There’s a godless party pushing its godless agenda. Its platform is being rewritten. Satan is behind it, and he’s driving it.”
Yes, there’s nothing Satan (D-CA, obviously) wants more than for people to be treated with dignity and respect. Good thing we have Christian preachers to save us from that travesty of a future.
The Act won’t become a law unless Democrats control Congress and the White House. Until then, conservative Christians will continue preaching discrimination and hate. It’s the only language they speak.
