Christian Right radio host, Eric Metaxas, joined radio host Mike Gallagher to discuss the recent meeting between Donald Trump and hundreds of Christian leaders. Metaxas emphasized his support for Trump, amid criticism, because he feels that if Hillary Clinton becomes the next president of the United States, she will appoint judges that will destroy America as we know it.
“If you have Supreme Court justices legislating from the bench, not four of them or four and a half, but if you have six or seven of them, that’s what you’re going to get under Hillary, and if that happens, the democratic republican government is over in America, in the greatest nation in the history of the world,” he said. “The freest nation in the history of the world will, under a new Democratic administration, we will no longer have the freedom where the people’s voice counts.”
“Now, Mike, think what I’m saying,” he continued. “In all of our years we faced all kinds of struggles. The only time we faced an existential struggle like this was in the Civil War and in the revolution when the nation began. In other words, we’re not supposed to be here. We are an amazing, fragile treasure in the world, the freedoms that we have had. We are on the verge of losing it as we could have lost it in the Civil War. Now, the thing is, there are no guns involved, all you have is termites from within.”
Metaxas pointed out the Obergefell marriage equality decision as an example.
“This is as serious as anything can be,” he said. “I hate to be a Cassandra, a Chicken Little, I’m not. This is just where we are and unless we face it, we’re dead.”
