Televangelist and convicted felon Jim Bakker warned his viewers on Dec. 29 that all of hell opposes President-elect Donald Trump because of his "righteousness" (video below).
Bakker began the segment by falsely claiming that reading the Bible was banned in public schools, notes Right Wing Watch:
Months ago, God called me to be a part of calling this nation back to God, to voting at the election, at the polls for a person who would stand for Bible reading in the schools even. You say, "Oh we can't do that." We can't? We can do all things through Christ.
Students have never been banned from reading the Bible in public schools, though the U.S Supreme Court ruled in 1963 that teachers and school staff could not force or lead children in religious activities.
Bakker went on to explain why, he believes, Trump won the election and why hell opposes him:
The great giant called the "family of God" got up and voted, and all hell is against this presidency! Why, why? I'll tell you why! That's it because of righteousness! Good and evil. Good and evil. That's what it's about. It's about Christianity cramps the style of this generation.
This generation wants to sin, and mock God, kill babies, a million of them a year, and just do anything we want. They’ve decided to change marriage, the whole definition of marriage. I’ve got news for you: It still takes a man and a woman to make a baby!
Bakker then falsely claimed that the U.K. legalized marriage between three people this week, and added that "pretty soon you’ll be able to marry a baboon."
The head of the Green Party in the U.K. has expressed support for civil unions for three people.
"Because enough Christians voted, we have a chance to put Christ back in the United States of America," Bakker insisted. "We already are reinstating 'Merry Christmas,' we've all been working on that for a long time."
Bakker went on to say that God had led him to help elect Trump, as well as former President Ronald Reagan, who, Bakker claimed, signed a "bill for Bible reading and prayer."
The "bill" to which Bakker may have been referring was Reagan's non-binding "Year of the Bible" proclamation in 1983, which read: "I encourage all citizens, each in his or her own way, to reexamine and rediscover its priceless and timeless message," noted The American Presidency Project.
"But we got people that are God-haters," Bakker complained. "About half of America are God haters today."
