Romney: Pastor Who Prayed At Embassy Opening A 'Religious Bigot'

Pastor Robert Jeffress

The Dallas-based Southern Baptist is a megachurch founder and a staunch supporter of President Trump.

"Most of all Israel has blessed this world by pointing us to you, the one true God, through the message of her prophets, the scriptures and the Messiah", the pastor said. "Because you are having the courage to do what other presidents did not have the courage to do".

Romney's rebuke of Jeffress drew the attention of NBC, which described the pastor of First Baptist Church in Dallas as "controversial".

On Monday Jeffress steered clear of such language, but he offered full-throated praise of Trump. We find it amusing that the next person to be elected on that "path" was President Trump. Jeffress delivered a sermon at a private church service just prior to Trump's inauguration in January 2017.

"I'm so glad my friend @robertjeffress is doing a prayer at the opening of the US Embassy in Jerusalem!" We sought to reflect that in this event, the official said. Palestinians and Israelis both claim Jerusalem as their capital. The decision to relocate the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem has been fraught with controversy.

Jeffress campaigned with Trump in 2016 and his influence was key to Trump winning an overwhelming majority of the evangelical vote.

Hagee, whose group is dedicated to organizing pro-Israel Christians in the United States into a unified voice, has had relationships with Israeli prime ministers dating back years. But McCain later disavowed Hagee's endorsement after the pastor's past remarks about Hitler and the Holocaust surfaced. So they had a monkey as a son, a son like this, so you say the blessing on him'. Then God sent a hunter.

Comfort said in a statement Romney is "sadly mistaken".

Jeffress said in a February 6, 2017, video posted on his church's website that "the truth everyone headed to hell has rejected is that Jesus Christ is the only means by which a person may be saved".

Shortly after McCain's announcement, Hagee withdrew his endorsement, citing critics who had been "grossly misrepresenting" his positions. They all said Judaism won't do it. "I have always condemned the horrors of the Holocaust in the strongest of terms".

"Robert Jeffress says 'you can't be saved by being a Jew, ' and "Mormonism is a heresy from the pit of hell, '" Romney wrote".

In recent years, Jeffress has frequently denounced Islam, calling it an "evil religion" that "promotes pedophilia" because the Prophet Mohammed married a 9-year-old girl. "The biblical gospel is good news for Jews, Mormons, atheists, Muslims, Hindus, agnostics, etc. - 'whosoever will may come, '" he said.

Jeffress responded in a tweet: "Historic Christianity has taught for 2,000 years that salvation is through faith in Christ alone". And the fact that I and tens of millions of evangelical Christians still believe that is not bigoted and it's not newsworthy. Even among some who strongly supported the embassy move to Jerusalem, however, the Jeffress choice did not go over well.
