Mike Pence shares ‘intimate’ dinner with right-wing pastor who prays for deaths of liberal justices
Mike and Karen Pence meet with religious right leaders at the Naval Observatory (White House)

Vice President Mike Pence and his wife hosted a small gathering of right-wing Christian leaders in their official residence at the Naval Observatory.


The White House released a photo of the event Thursday, which "prayer warrior" Frank Amedia also announced in an email, reported Right Wing Watch.

Amedia said he and other religious right activists enjoyed "a very small and intimate dinner meeting with Vice President Pence and his wife Karen," where they discussed an evangelical event March 20-22 in Branson, Missouri, hosted by apocalyptic televangelist Jim Bakker.

"I perceive that this timing is critical and strategic as I have been advising that I have received that February is a time of chaos in our nation politically," Amedia told his followers, "with flash points on the coasts and in the heartland, as well as the caution of the 'ides of March' looming which will try to swallow up the spiritual surge of progress and pierce the heart of our political and church reformation."

Amedia, a volunteer policy liaison for President Donald Trump’s campaign, founded the POTUS Shield network of pastors who believe government should be controlled by conservative Christians.

He told followers that Pence and his wife, who are conservative Christians, “are keenly aware” of the POTUS Shield’s work and asked Amedia to thank his followers on behalf of the vice president and Trump for their "relentless commitment to be a shield and weapon of spiritual force.”

Amedia and his followers believe Trump will help usher in a spiritual revival that will turn America into an explicitly Christian nation, and group members pray for God to "sweep away" Supreme Court justices who don't share their viewpoint.
