What’s In A Name? Conservative Christian TV host Rick Wiles is warning fellow Christians that they should not support the Biden Harris ticket because Kamala “isn’t a Christian name.”
LGBTQ Nation reports:
Rick Wiles, a far right evangelical Christian broadcaster, has used his show to praise Donald Trump, spew anti-Semitism, and spout off some serious nonsense.
This time, he’s warning his viewers that they shouldn’t vote for Joe Biden because his running mate’s name is idolatrous. Sen. Kamala Harris’ first name,” he says, is not a “Christian name.”
Wiles, speaking on a recent episode of his TruNews program, took issue with the name “Kamala,” declaring:
She was named for a Hindu goddess. Is that who we’re electing? A Hindu goddess?
Look, if my mom and dad named me for a Hindu god, I would go to a court and demand — I would want a Christian name. I wouldn’t want to go through life with a Hindu god name. I’d want a Christian name, because it would be a curse for me to go through life named for a false idol.

Wiles is a popular but controversial conservative Christian leader prone to making outrageous and alarming claims. For example, before the 2018 midterm elections, Wiles warned his viewers that if Democrats won the election they would slaughter “tens of thousands of Christians.” Yet even though the Democrats did win the House in the midterm election, as of today, there have been no reports of Christians being slaughtered.
Previously the Christian TV host warned his followers that MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow was preparing to lead a bloody coup to overthrow the Trump administration.
More recently, Wiles asked President Donald Trump to use “hollow-point bullets” on protesters to “put down this communist revolution” in Portland, Oregon.
Can you feel the Christian love?
Yet for those who want to dismiss Wiles as a lone lunatic, it is important to note that he is a popular conservative Christian broadcaster with a large audience, and White House press credentials.
Bottom line: Conservative Christian TV host Rick Wiles is warning fellow Christians that they should not support the Biden Harris ticket because Kamala “isn’t a Christian name.”
