It turns out performers aren’t the only ones being threatened for their commitment to perform at Donald Trump’s inauguration.
President elect Trump has invited a group of faith leaders to his inauguration, and one says he’s receiving all sorts of threats. Via WND:
A Christian pastor who will be among the faith leaders at Friday’s inauguration of Donald Trump as the next president is being flooded with messages of “very strong” hate, but says he’s unfazed by the vicious comments.
“Some are very, very strong in their emotions about me doing this,” Bishop Wayne T. Jackson, who leads Great Faith Ministries International in Detroit, told TMZ. “I’ve been called a sell-out.”
“Anytime you’re in the forefront, you’re gonna be a target. But you gotta make sure that your convictions of why you’re doing it are pure,” he added.
Jackson, who will be doing the benediction during the inaugural, explained his purpose for being there:
“My job is a job to represent, first of all, the Bible, the followings and the teachings of Jesus Christ. It’s not about Democrats, it’s not about Republicans. It’s about making sure that I do what Jesus says. And that is that we’re supposed to love everyone. That’s the message Jesus brought. And my position as a minister to be asked to pray at the highest ceremony of our country – it gets no higher than that – I do what I do because I’m called to do it.”
A non partisan benediction is apparently too much for American liberals. Remember that the next time you hear them talk about “tolerance.”
