Jeffress threw Jesus under the bus

And yet the same pastor who declared Mitt Romney unfit for office called the defeat of this president “a spiritual imperative.”

Really, pastor?

That’s a fascinating conclusion to draw out of the spiritual teachings of Jesus Christ, because in all the years I spent going to Southern Baptist churches, attending Sunday school, Sunday morning services, Training Union, Sunday night services, Tuesday Bible studies, Wednesday night church supper, Vacation Bible School, Bible drills from the age of 5, and just about every other fellowship meeting that the Baptist church offers, I can recall nothing in Jesus’s teachings or the New Testament that should fill you with the kind of self-righteous arrogance to declare to Americans which candidate is spiritually fit for the Oval Office.

That’s not just bad politics. It is bad theology.
