Trump's Anti-Semitic Faith Adviser To Speak At US Embassy Opening In Jerusalem

The liberal group Media Matters reports on its website that Jeffress made the remarks cited by Romney in a 2011 speech at the conservative Values Voter Summit.

Jeffress, the pastor of Dallas First Baptist Church and a member of Trump's evangelical advisory council, has a history of making controversial remarks about religion, policy, and sexuality. "Such a non secular bigot shouldn't be giving the prayer that opens america Embassy in Jerusalem".

Dr. Robert Jeffress, a noted evangelical minister set to deliver the opening prayer at the new U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem, found himself under fire from 2012 Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

Jeffress says "it's sad" that Romney lashed out at him ahead of the embassy inauguration in Jerusalem.

South Korean, US officials plot path to Trump-Kim nuclear summit
Trump must not rush simply in pursuit of success. "We're not talking about sanctions relief at this point", Kang said. Their luck turned when a Korean-American pastor raised money to bribe North Korean officials for their release.


Robert Jeffress has been slammed as a "bigot" over comments he made on Islam, Mormonism and homosexuality. The message was clear but Hagee said his position was misrepresented and "the ugliest of lies".

"Mormonism has never been considered a part of historic Christianity". "The fact that I, along with tens of millions of evangelical Christians around the world, continue to espouse that belief, is neither bigoted nor newsworthy". He said at the time, "The idea that Mormonism is a theological cult is not news either. People may disagree with that view, but it's not a view unique to me", he told NBC. Then, he said he will thank God "for the strong leadership of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu" because he "is determined to protect his people".

The relocation of the embassy marks a virtually three decade departure from USA worldwide coverage and has been largely regarded by evangelical Christians as a significant victory for the Trump administration.

Big-name pastors also came to Jeffress' defense, including Greg Laurie of Harvest Christian Fellowship in California. And I'm also going to be thanking God for our President Donald Trump, who had the courage to do what no other US President has done, and that is to officially recognize Jerusalem and to move the embassy.
