From the American Family Association’s OneNewsNow:
Florida pastor Rodney Howard-Browne, who was arrested this week for holding Sunday services at his Tampa-based church, and some others (such as Louisiana pastor Tony Spell) who have disregarded public safety measures as typical evangelical behavior. Jeffress’ response?
“There are a few fanatical nutjobs among evangelicals right now who are doing stupid things like holding mass church services and promising they will heal anybody who has the coronavirus,” he tells OneNewsNow.
“But most evangelicals I know are doing exactly what the government is asking them to do. Like our church, they’re abstaining from large church meeting and worshipping online.”
Jeffress last appeared on JMG when he told Todd Starnes that Democrats literally worship the pagan god Moloch.
That declaration cost Starnes his career with Fox News, apparently because he failed to object or disagree.
Jeffress had earned national headlines days earlier when Trump quoted his warning that civil war will result if he is removed from office.
Jeffress thanks God that Trump “knows there’s no such thing as the separation of church and state in the Constitution.”
