Pastor Robert Jeffress defended Trump against a porn star’s claims that she romped with the president, calling the allegations “totally irrelevant” to those of faith who support Trump.“Evangelicals know they’re not compromising their beliefs in order to support this great president,”
Jeffress, who also oversees the First Baptist Church in Dallas, explained. “And let’s be clear, evangelicals still believe in the commandment ‘Thou shalt not have sex with a porn star.'”
He added that whether Trump violated the aforementioned commandment is a moot point.
“Whether this president violated that commandment or not is totally irrelevant to our support of him,” Jeffress said, and explained that Christian evangelicals were well aware that they were not voting for an “altar boy” during the 2016 presidential election, but instead, supported Trump because of his “policies and strong leadership.”
“We are all sinners, we all need forgiveness, [and] that forgiveness is available through Christ for anyone who asks,” he explained. “And whether the president needs that forgiveness for this particular allegation, whether he’s asked for it, is between him, his family and his God.”https://www.theblaze.com/news/2018/03/0 ... -president
