First Baptist's Robert Jeffress: Mormonism is Still a Cult, But Obama? He's Basically Hitler.

Robert Jeffress isn't telling you which candidate is evil. You'll just have to guess.
Yesterday, speaking before a gathering of pastors in Tampa, First Baptist's Robert Jeffress stopped short of endorsing a particular candidate in the presidential race. Such overt political advocacy could risk his church's tax-exempt status -- not that he has let such concerns hinder him in the past.

That doesn't mean that the nation's clergy stay out of politics. On the contrary, Jeffress urged the pastors to use their pulpit as a weapon in the political arena.

"This is no time for God's men to be passive. It's time to stand up and push back against all the evil in our country," Jeffress said, according to an account in The Tampa Tribune.

Jeffress repeated his oft-quoted assertion that Mormonism is a cult, but it's clear from the Tribune article, and the fact that he's Robert Jeffress, that he's more concerned about a certain non-Mormon candidate.

"Tell your people that they have a choice: to cast a vote for righteousness or vote for unrighteousness."

Jeffress urged the capacity crowd at the A La Carte Event Pavilion in Tampa to use their pulpit time Sunday to stress the importance of voting for the candidate who supports the "biblical values" of the sanctity of marriage, sanctity of life and religious freedom.

Stay silent, he warned them, and you're no different than German Lutheran pastors who didn't speak out against Hitler's growing influence in the late 1930s. That lack of action led to the Holocaust, he said.

Because pursuing a pragmatic, center-left agenda is roughly the same as slaughtering six million people. Roughly.

Holocaust killed 11 million. 6 million were Jews. It's called a fact check Eric. Might want to do that before you start slinging. That being said, Jeffress is an embarrassment. There are plenty of stand up Baptist ministers out there. Congregation needs to kick him to curb the before he does something really really really stupid.

I wish it were as easy as telling people to stop putting a microphone in front of him, but it's a little like asking a question to a magic 8 ball-it's kinda fun if you just remember not to take what he says too seriously and make the questions really simple.

Has Jeffress still not come out of the closet? As my friend, Paul, says..."He's the only person I've heard lisp on the letter Q!" I think what Jeffress way trying to say was the he'd rather a white man be in the White House. Racism is perfectly justified if it's camouflaged as religion.

Someone forgot to educate Jeffress about Godwin's law. Also what will take away his tax exempt status.

Martin Luther was antisemtic to start out with... ^ Hendrix, Scott H. "The Controversial Luther", Word & World 3/4 (1983), Luther Seminary, St. Paul, MN, p. 393: "And, finally, after the Holocaust and the use of his anti-Jewish statements by National Socialists, Luther's anti-semitic outbursts are now unmentionable, though they were already repulsive in the sixteenth century. As a result, Luther has become as controversial in the twentieth century as he was in the sixteenth." Also see Hillerbrand, Hans. "The legacy of Martin Luther", in Hillerbrand, Hans & McKim, Donald K. (eds.) The Cambridge Companion to Luther. Cambridge University Press, 2003.

I would say I'd like to take a big shit in Robert Jeffers' mouth, but somehow that would seem redundant...

But  calling Bush Hitler and Hitler monkey was just fine. Hypocritical idiots.

It is said that when the anti-Christ arrives, it will be in the guise of a charismatic authority figure, possibly in robes and vestments of the very leaders of the institutions he will be coming to undermine through his lies and deceit...

 

Makes you wonder.

Remember folks: advocating voting one's values is legitimate only in black churches.

This is nothing more than a case of a hypocritical 'white crock pot' calling the kettle white.

 

It is too bad, Republicans used to be associated with rational fiscal conservatism...now they are nothing but a running joke that the rest of world enjoys at their expense. And since the rest of the world considers them anti-science, religious nutjobs and  'American Exceptionalism' idiots, they simply chalk up such resistance as 'socialism' or 'multi-cultural' backlash.

 

They even dislike their own candidate because he can't pass their 'I've been an old white conservative longer than you have" litmus test.

 So Jeffries is saying vote "for the candidate who supports the "biblical values" of the sanctity of marriage, sanctity of life and religious freedom."  Right? What's he talking about?  Is he trying to attack Obama for his support of "gay marriage"?  Because if he is, why does he not attack Romney for taking a similar position when he was governor of Massachusetts? Or maybe he's attacking both of those candidates....or is he (as usual) just "uninformed"?...

 @russell.allison1 Does that mean I can shake him really really hard each time someone asks him a question?  Might make it worth having to hear his ignorant and hate filed answers

 Revelations may also have been about the past.

Can we please stop basing our politics on this book.

Review 1666 M.E. to see how that worked out.

 How many black churches get tax breaks?

African slaves originally politically organized in churches, so churches getting into politics in the black community has always been the case

 @roo_ster actually advocating voting one's values is illegal in every church, or at the very least it'll take away your tax exempt status.

 @roo_ster When a white pastor talks like this it is wrong.  When Obama's spiritual minister talked like this for 20 years while Obama sat in the pews soaking it in, it is Republican race baiting.

 @plfarmer It may also just be a fairy tale -that's where the smart money is.

 

However, as long as there is a significant portion of the population of this earth that base their entire existence on stone-age myths, we are all shackled to them. Trust me, It's not by my choice that we live in a world ruled largely by misguided interpretations of "this book", as you refer to it.

 @TurdFerguson You wouldn't know that by the collective pants-wetting going on in certain segments of the populace, though.

 @hentai.jeff Uh, no it is not.  Explicit political advocacy is supposed to be, though.

 @albert.finney000  @WhoStoleMyGOP No doubt; half of the republicans are supporting the poles at The Lodge/similar, the other half, like Perry, are supporting the poles in motel rooms.  Oh, you said polls...well, same-same - Quality! - (he said flipping off the driver ahead of him for going too slow as he drove out of the church parking lot).
