"Lahey, I live in a tent!"
The strange beliefs of some Christians do not negate the fact that wicked support for abortion, perversion, and one-world Marxism threatens to destroy America as a nation.
We need to promote a won-world America to compete with one-world Marxism.

Another far right wingnut to add to the list...

Leon Benjamin is the founder and bishop of New Life Harvest Church in Richmond. Two years ago, he was the Republican challenger in Virigina against Democratic incumbent Don McEachin—and got his head handed to him, 61-38. He’s back for a rematch in 2022 in this Richmond-to-Hampton Roads district, even though he’s now running in territory that is even more Democratic than its predecessor. According to Cook Political Report’s analysis of the recently redrawn map in Virginia, the new VA-04 has a Cook Partisan Voting Index of D+16; the old VA-04 had a PVI of D+10.

But Benjamin isn’t letting the prospect of being a sacrificial lamb dissuade him from the spotlight. Late last week, he was one of the guests at the Phoenix edition of the Reawaken America Tour, a right-wing conference organized by podcaster Clay Clark and co-sponsored by Charisma magazine. The speaker list is a virtual who’s who of deplorables. At various times, speakers have included Michael Flynn, Roger Stone, Mark Burns, Mark Lindell, Greg Locke, Lance Wallnau, and many more.

"Bishop" in air-quotes. The only actual, historical bishops are those in the Catholic and Orthodox churches, not even the "bishops" in the Church of England can be argued beyond a reasonable doubt to be holding the same office which the Apostles established in the first century AD. Let alone the bishops of "New Life Harvest Church."

No argument here. The guy shouldn't be holding any position in a church at all frankly.

Americans are sometimes forced to choose between those who honor God but have strange or uncommon religious beliefs and those who dishonor God and have no respectable religious beliefs.

Kari Lake is just another phony grifting opportunist, of which there are so many in today's Trumplican Party:

Kari Lake might surprise conservative Christians like Trump did after he was elected. Trump was once a democrat, as was Reagan, and both Trump and Reagan proved to be strong supporters of right issues in spite of whatever may have been wrong in their thinking. Here are Kari Lake's current views, or are at least what she claims to support, and I like them. I doubt any democrat would profess to hold views like this.

Trump was never a Democrat. He was a Republican, then he joined the Reform Party around 2000, then he went back to being a Republican.
Well...To be fair the line does sort of blur in NYC...It has more to do with which gang's machine you have the most friends in as opposed to any ideological differences. :unsure:
