What does it mean to “Make America Great Again”? Apparently, frightening the hell out of Iran.
That’s according to Pastor Terri Pearsons, daughter of televangelist Kenneth Copeland and leader at his Eagle Mountain International Church, who praised Donald Trump for the death of Iranian Major General Qassem Soleimani during a Sunday service last week.
Because nothing says “I love Jesus” more than murdering someone.
After reading and celebrating a couple of Trump’s tweets, Pearsons issued a prayer asking God to terrorize Iran.
“We are reminded Lord that it was the I AM that dealt with Pharaoh,” she said. “It was the I Am that dealt with the enemy nation of God and his people. It was the Great I Am that brought them to their knees and lifted up Israel and the covenant people of God that the whole world was in fear of. Lord, we thank you for the covenant promise that said I will make them afraid of you. Lord, for their own sake, we ask you to make them afraid of us, make them afraid of Mr. Trump, make them afraid of Americans.”
Jesus asked people to turn the other cheek. This megachurch preacher wants citizens of another country to live in fear that a deranged president might bomb their faces. Members of her congregation presumably consider themselves “pro-life.”
I guess they never learned how cognitive dissonance works.
