Jeffress: Christians are tired of being bullied for faith


>>Sandra: THE PANEL ON THE VIEW MOCKING VICE PRESIDENT MIKE PENCE FOR SAYING THAT HE TALKS TO JESUS. WATCH.>>I THINK WHEN YOU HAVE A MIKE PENCE THAT NOW SORT OF PUTS THIS RELIGIOUS VENEER ON THINGS AND CALLS PEOPLE VALUES VOTERS I THINK WE’RE IN A DANGEROUS SITUATION.>>I’M A FAITHFUL PERSON BUT I DON’T KNOW IF I WANT MY VICE PRESIDENT SPEAKING IN TONGUES AND HAVING –>>LIKE I SAID BEFORE, IT’S ONE THING TO TALK TO JESUS, IT IS ANOTHER THING WHEN JESUS TALKS TO YOU.>>MENTAL ILLNESS IF I’M NOT CORRECT. HEARING VOICES.>>PASTOR ROBERT JEFFRIES IS A FAITH ADVISOR TO PRESIDENT TRUMP. PASTOR. THANK YOU FOR COMING ON THIS MORNING. I’M SURE YOU’RE HAVING A REACTION HEARING THAT AGAIN. WHAT IS IT?>>WELL, LOOK, LET’S GO AHEAD AND SAY WHAT WE ALL KNOW IS TRUE. IF JOY BEHAR HAD ATTACKED A DEVOUT MUSLIM FOR HIS FAITH ABC WOULD HAVE FIRED HER. ATTACKING CONSERVATIVE CHRISTIANS IS OFTEN OPEN SEASON. WHY IS IT THAT EVANGELICALS SUPPORTED A SECULAR CANDIDATE LIKE DONALD TRUMP BY THE LARGEST — CHRISTIANS WANT AN ADMINISTRATION WHO WOULD RESPECT RATHER THAN RIDICULE THEIR BELIEVES. IN MANY WAYS IT WAS A REACTION AGAINST THESE KIND OF DESPICABLE ATTACKS UPON PEOPLE’S FAITH.>>Sandra: WHY DO YOU THINK THEY HAVE SUCH A PROBLEM WITH THE VICE PRESIDENT AND HIS BELIEFS?>>WELL, SCRATCH BENEATH THE SURFACE, READ WHAT THEY’VE SAID IN THE PAST AND IT IS VERY CLEAR. MIKE PENCE HAS COMMITTED THE UNPARDONABLE SIN WHEN IT COMES TO THE LEFT AND THAT IS HE STILL MAINTAINS THE PERSONAL BELIEF THAT MARRIAGE SHOULD BE BETWEEN A MAN AND A WOMAN. AND LOOK, EVERYBODY DON’T AGREE WITH THAT PERSPECTIVE. HE UNDERSTANDS THAT. BUT YOU CAN HARDLY CALL THAT AN EXTREME PERSPECTIVE WHEN IT IS THE BELIEF OF THE THREE MAJOR WORLD RELIGIONS, CHRISTIANITY, JUDAISM AND ISLAM WHICH HAVE TAUGHT THAT FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS. LOOK, THIS ONCE AGAIN SHOWS THE HYPOCRISY OF THE LEFT. THE LEFT CRIES FOR TOLERANCE, AND YET THEY ARE THE MOST INTOLERANT PEOPLE WHEN IT COMES TO BELIEFS WITH WHICH THEY DISAGREE.>>Sandra: YOU ALSO HAVE A PREDICTION TO MAKE ABOUT THE NEXT PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION IF THE LEFT CONTINUES TO KEEP UP THEIR RIDICULE OF CONSERVATIVE CHRISTIAN BELIEFS.>>LOOK, I TOLD PRESIDENT TRUMP LAST WEEK HE HAS BECOME THE MOST FAITH-FRIENDLY PRESIDENT IN HISTORY AND HIS SELECTION OF VICE PRESIDENT PENCE IS ONE EXAMPLE OF THAT. IF JOY BEHAR AND HER ILK CONTINUE THESE KIND OF UNFOUNDED ATTACKS YOU’LL SEE PRESIDENT TRUMP REELECTED BY A LANDSLIDE IN 2020 AND YOU WILL SEE VICE PRESIDENT PENCE BECOME PRESIDENT PENCE IN 2024. THAT’S MY PREDICTION.>>Sandra: I HAVE TO LEAVE IT THERE. FINAL WORD TO YOU ON MIKE PENCE AND HIS RESPONSE TO THIS. WE HAVE NOT YET SEEN OR HEARD A RESPONSE FROM HIM. DO YOU THINK HE SHOULD RESPOND?>>MY GUESS IS YOU WILL HEAR A VERY GRACIOUS RESPONSE IN SOME FORM VERY SOON.>>Sandra: PASTOR, THANK YOU
