In a recent report from the Christian News, Robert Jeffress, pastor of First Baptist Church in Dallas, TX, has come out and said that he advised Trump, and others, to give up on fighting gay marriage, because it was the “law of the land.” He then went on to say that Christians should focus on the battle of abortion. But according to his logic, should we really fight that as well, since it too is the “law of the land.”
Jeffress has always been challenged when it comes to thinking logically and theologically. It’s just really obvious now. Here is the report from Christian News:
DALLAS, Texas — Like President-elect Donald Trump, a prominent Baptist minister in Texas who backed Trump’s campaign efforts says that despite his opposition, same-sex “marriage” is “settled law,” and Christians should move on to another issue, such as abortion.
Robert Jeffress, who leads First Baptist Church in Dallas, spoke last week with Good Morning Texas, which noted that Jeffress’ longstanding fight against the issue is now “water under the bridge.”
“This is not going to be re-litigated by the Supreme Court. That is the law of the land. I wish it were different, but it’s not different,” he said emphatically.
Jeffress outlined that he told Christians and others not to urge Trump to make the sanctity of marriage a part of his campaign.
“And actually I had to argue against some hard-right Catholics and evangelicals who wanted Mr. Trump to make that a campaign issue,’” he explained. “I said, ‘Guys, forget it. It’s over.’”
“We need to go on to other things, like protecting the unborn,” Jeffress said.
