Recently on Fox News Robert Jeffress attacked former Presidnet George W Bush. This post is a look at the pastor from First Baptist Dallas and how in the opinion of this blog all he is capable of doing is kissing ass of a person who has power.
“You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.”
James Anthony Froude
I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people,
Ephesians 1:18 NIV
When I was in college I attended the Republican National Convention in San Diego, California. I did so as a member of the Young Republicans. It was a once in a lifetime opportunity and I seized it. I had an experience on the floor that I will never forget. On one of the nights, I forget which I was on the floor walking around. I was walking past the Texas delegation. Sam Donaldson of ABC News comes rushing by and knocks me and I hit someone standing next to the Texas delegation sign. I apologize. And this guy turns around and its Texas Governor George W Bush. He slapped me on the back in a friendly manner and said “No problem son.” He gave me an autograph on my Dole/Kemp sign which I still have today. He was pleasant, nice and the darling of evangelicals because of how open he was about faith and how he overcame problems with alcohol through Jesus. When he was president I remember the wife of my senior pastor of Wooded Hills in Milwaukee saying that, “If you’re a Christian you support W.” I supported Bush and liked him though I was concerned about the Iraq War. Other than that I liked Bush.
Robert Jeffress Attacks Bush on Fox News
Recently on Fox News Robert Jeffress of First Baptist Texas was on and when asked what he thought about a recent Peter Wehner article Robert Jeffress went on and attacked George W Bush, Mitt Romney and several others as a “disgrace to the Republican Party.” It almost appears if it Jeffress even questions the faith of Bush and speaks harshly against him.
Analysis and Closing Thoughts
When it comes to Christian nationalism and evangelicals there is no one greater who can kiss the ass of Donald Trump more so than Robert Jeffress. It seems as if that is all that he can do in life and why he was born. In many ways he is like a prostitute in that he sells himself easily and is easy to corrupt. And can someone please tell me what exactly he is doing showing up regularly on Fox News? Is he a pastor or the spokesman for the Trumpist Republican Party. I am a loss for words. But to attack George W Bush? For me that is sick. Bush has a lot more character and has more to stand on. When I see garbage like this it makes me relieved that I have left evangelicalism. For many evangelicals faith is about power. There are many evangelicals who will whore out Jesus and kick him in the ass to the side of the road if they could get political power. That’s all they care about. And that is all Jeffress cares about. Mark my word you can find a prostitute in Dallas who has more character and integrity than Robert Jeffress. Okay I have said what needed to be said. I just needed to get this off my chest after seeing that clip on YouTube recently.
