“I remind our viewers that for the first 150 years of our nation’s history, our schoolchildren prayed, they read Scripture in school, they even memorized the Ten Commandments, including the commandment ‘Thou shall not kill.'” Baptist Joint Committee
Jeffress said in the Fox News segment that none of this matters to evangelicals who voted for Trump. "Evangelicals still believe in the commandment: Thou shalt not have sex with a porn star," he said. "However, whether this president violated that commandment or not is totally irrelevant to our support of him."
"Robert Jeffress, pastor at First Baptist Dallas, committed himself to Donald Trump and his presidency in 2016, positioning himself as the evangelical face of Trumpism. This year, for better and worse, Jeffress has reaped the consequences of that commitment, repeatedly finding himself at the center of the Trump universe" Dallas Observer
