An Arkansas senator told audience members at a Faith2Action banquet in Columbus, Ohio, that he does not actually serve the people that elected him — he serves God. Sen. Jason Rapert is the lawmaker behind Arkansas’ ban on abortion at 12 weeks. His remarks were captured on video.
“It’s more important to do what is right by God than it is to please those that would rather have me talk about pro-life but not really do much about pro-life," Rapert said. "Here’s only one vote that matters and that’s when I stand before the Lord at the judgment seat.”
He went on to suggest that the people who protested Texas’ new abortion restrictions at the state Capitol are demons from hell, Salon reported.
“I’ve never had a glimpse of Hell or heard a real demon, but I believe that must be what they sound like," he said. "It’s spiritual warfare.”
