In these moments of impeachment, the court prophets have lined up to defend the president, led by a few prominent, white evangelical leaders – none more outspoken than Dallas pastor Robert Jeffress.
One exchange during the impeachment hearings was a reminder of what it means to be a witness as a follower of Jesus.
Legendary broadcaster and one-time Baptist preacher Bill Moyers says for the first time in his 85 years he fears for America.
The president’s racist Twitter message employing the language of lynching was a diabolical suggestion that the current impeachment inquiry is the existential, moral and legal equivalent of murder.
If words really do “mean something,” as Robert Jeffress asserted, correctly, then the rhetoric of “civil war,” “treason” or “coup” used by president, pastor or any of us is not only divisive but dangerous.
