Peter Montgomery reports at Right Wing Watch:
Rapper Kanye West announced that he and his Sunday Service choir will take part in Awaken 2020, a prayer rally featuring dominionists Lou Engle, Ché Ahn, Cindy Jacobs and other evangelists that will be held Saturday, Jan. 18 at Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe, Arizona. According to one report, West’s announcement sparked such a flood of people registering for free tickets that the event website crashed.
Engle teaches that “the church’s vocation is to rule history with God.” He has used his prayer events to call for an end to abortion in America, to mobilize resistance to LGBTQ equality, and to ask God to “remove” pro-choice Supreme Court justices so that President Donald Trump can replace them with justices who will eliminate a right to abortion.
Last year, Jacobs warned that the proposed Equality Act, which would expand federal civil rights laws to include protections against discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation of gender identity, becomes law, “Christians will rise up” and “we would even come to a place of civil war.” In 2017, Jacobs told a gathering that God wants Christians to become so wealthy it will make Jews jealous, sparking a “great harvest” of Jewish conversions.
Longtime JMG readers will recall that Cindy Jacobs once declared that God had murdered thousands of birds in anger over the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.
In 2013, she predicted that God would unleash “righteous and brutal divine punishment” upon the United States over same-sex marriage.
In 2010, Lou Engle celebrated Uganda’s push for the death penalty for homosexuality while in Uganda after telling the US press that he wouldn’t do so.
