For a man who spent his life so immorally, Donald Trump sure engendered an awful lot of religious support. And even as stories about Trump’s lewd behavior came out, the Evangelical support never waned.
Some leaders of the Church took their views even farther. Curt Landry was one of them. The Right-Wing pastor said in 2020 that it was prophesied that a red tsunami would propel Trump back to the White House. And during a recent show, Landry said that any criticism of that prophecy was cancel culture.
“The church’s cancel culture has really created, it has blossomed into really a global cancel culture,” Landry lamented. “I really think that since the 2020 election, the body of Christ has canceled its prophets based on the fact that President Trump did not serve a second term. And when [he] did not serve a second term, there was like this evil accusing-of-the-brethren spirit that rose up—particularly in the church—and said, ‘This prophet predicted that—there’s a false prophet.’ We maybe didn’t stone anybody with rocks, but we certainly stoned them on social media with our own mouth.”
The pastor continued, “So, here we are canceling the prophets,” he continued. “The Scripture says about this in Psalm 105:15, it clearly says, ‘Do not touch my anointed ones, nor do my prophets no harm.’ So when they did miss it, and we did harm to them. Thus, we fed into that river of the cancel culture where we attacked our own. We need to repent from that tonight. We need to get cleansed from that tonight.
