Megachurch Pastor Says Trump Has God’s Approval to Start Nuclear War
Comments by president’s spiritual advisor, Robert Jeffress–left in photo–sparks condemnation amid “fire and fury” threats against North Korea
This LINK is to an article about Trump’s diabolically insane spiritual advisor who stated that God approves of Trump using nuclear weapons on North Korea.
However, Art Laffin, from the Washington, DC Catholic Worker, offered a counterpoint to Jeffress’s pro-war religiosity at a vigil in front of the White House on the 72nd anniversary of the U.S. atomic bombing of Hiroshima, Japan.
“Nuclear weapons are immoral, illegal, anti-God, anti-life, anti-creation, and have no right to exist,” said Art Laffin, an activist with the Catholic Worker.
After denouncing spending on nuclear weapons as “direct theft from the poor,” Laffin said: “If the U.S. is to ever truly lead the way to real disarmament, it must first repent for the nuclear bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Then and only then can the U.S. legitimately ask other nuclear nations to disarm.”
