Pastor Robert Jeffress Responds To Mitt Romney and Other Critics

The Anti-Defamation League issued conflicting statements Monday both praising and denouncing President Donald Trump before the much-touted, historic opening of the new U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem.

Southern Baptist preacher Robert Jeffress is notably a keen Trump supporter, and, separately, is known to have called homosexuals "perverts", billed Mormonism "a heresy" from hell, and made derogatory remarks toward Jews. Islam, he also said, "promotes pedophilia".

"This is a historic moment because it represents the United States recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, something that the Bible and secular history have told us for 3,000 years", Jeffress said on Fox & Friends. In a tweet, the failed presidential candidate and now Senate candidate, said that Jeffress (but not Hagee) was "a religious bigot", citing Jeffress's comments on Mormons and Jews. "The biblical gospel is good news for Jews, Mormons, atheists, Muslims, Hindus, agnostics, etc. - 'whosoever will may come, '" he said.

The decision by President Trump to move the embassy from Tel Aviv fulfilled a major campaign promise and handed a victory to hard-line pro-Israel Americans, as well as conservative and evangelical Christians who have long wanted the United States' diplomatic home to be in Jerusalem. The fact that I and tens of millions of evangelical Christians still believe that is not bigoted and it's not newsworthy.

Despite their comments about Jewish people, the two pastors are among the leading pro-Israel voices in the evangelical Christian world.

The inaugural event itself spurred an outbreak of protests among Palestinians in Gaza, about 40 miles away from Jerusalem.

GJELTEN: A White House spokesman today said the invitation to Pastor Jeffress reflected his strong relationship with many in the faith community. "No man comes to the Father but by me.' Now people can disagree with Jesus" words.

President Trump announced December 6 that the US would formally recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel in accordance with a law passed overwhelmingly by Congress in 1994 that had been waived every six months by the president for national security considerations.

Jeffress appeared on Fox News on Friday to discuss the embassy's opening. Hagee had endorsed McCain, but McCain disavowed him after the preacher was quoted as saying that Hitler was doing God's work. "I really hope people will look at the book and see what their tax dollars are supporting".
