All The President's Evangelical Shills

“People like Robert Jeffress and Franklin Graham would be content with a serial killer president if he claimed that life begins with ejaculate and that gay and transgender people were making bad choices.”

On June 1, Trump enjoyed a photo-op holding an upside-down Bible in front of St. John's Church in Washington, DC. Some Christians were offended that a Bible was being used as a prop. Others were offended that, for this to take place, streets were cleared of peaceful protesters with the use of teargas.

Those were the rational Christians. Wednesday, Religion News Service reports that others have risen to defend the president:
“(Trump) walked FOR the protection of the right of peaceful protest,” Johnnie Moore, who helped organize the Trump campaign’s evangelical advisory board in 2016 and now serves as a commissioner for the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom, said in an email to Religion News Service. “He walked AGAINST the violent anarchists and looters who were disrupting those peaceful protests and dishonoring the memory of George Floyd.”
Yes, indeed, Mr. Moore. The use of teargas to clear peaceful protesters exercising their constitutional rights to free speech and free assembly is a sure way to spread a message of nonviolence. Trump's teargas confirmed that he “walked FOR the protection of the right of peaceful protest.”
Other evangelical supporters of the president such as Franklin Graham and Texas pastor Robert Jeffress have also praised Trump’s walk to St. John’s, calling it an “important statement” and “absolutely correct.”
Uh huh.

People like Robert Jeffress and Franklin Graham would be content with a serial killer president if he claimed that life begins with ejaculate and that gay and transgender people were making bad choices.
