Con man Rick Scarborough insists that his latest crusade, which he calls 40 Days to Save America, is “not a political effort.” Which explains why he goes on a radio show to promote that event and declares that American will not survive if Obama is reelected in November:
Christians either by their not voting or by voting with their emotions in the last election put Barack Obama in the White House. I happen to believe personally, this is not Vision America, this is me speaking, I believe he is the worst president in the history of the country, I believe he is a dangerous president, and I believe America will not survive for more years under his leadership. I can’t imagine a Barack Obama unleashed without another election to face.
And then he said something stupid about the Chick-Fil-A controversy:
It will take thousands of churches and millions of Christians fasting I believe at this point to move the heart of God to relent from the judgment that we have worked so hard to get. Sixty million aborted babies, debts out of control, which is nothing more than generational theft, right now we take a good Godly man like [Chick-fil-A founder] Mr. Truett [Cathy], who founded a company and devoted every resource he had to the advancement and the welfare of his employees and the people who patronize his store, and homosexuals are seeking right now to shut it down. We deserve judgment. We’ve got to have a brokenhearted group of people who understand that, who cry out to God and who partner with us.
Yeah, Truett is all about the welfare of his employees and customers. Unless they’re gay, then screw em. And discriminate against them. Must be more of that famous Christian “love” we hear about so much (and see so rarely).
