Last week, Ben Carson and Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson hosted a teleforum, which was backed by My Faith Votes, in an effort to encourage 25 million Christians to go out and vote.
Considering the fact that My Faith Votes organized the behind closed door meeting between the Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and hundreds of conservative Religious Right leaders earlier in the summer, they urged Christian voters to vote for the reality star.
Robertson started things by agreeing when a caller claimed that “rising secularism” in America is “the greatest assault on Christianity”. Robertson blamed the attack on Christianity on people who “elect depraved souls” into power who support gay marriage and abortion rights, instead of candidates who are fighting to protect religious liberty and the Second Amendment.
“You call it secularism,” he said, “I just call it the Evil One, the Evil One that controls human beings.”
Robertson also blamed the separation of church from public schools for the rampant murdering and lying that has taken over the country.
America’s last hope is for Christians to put the godliest candidates back in power, according to Robertson. “The one that at least won’t disarm us, spiritually speaking and physically speaking.”
“I can’t tell you how to vote,” he said, but “if they keep fooling around long enough, they’re going to force me to run. If you want to see a change in America, get me in there, dude, and there will be a big change then, if you all are ready for it.”
