Christian candidate for Alabama governor says the ‘The ark was built by amateurs’ and ‘maybe we need a governor who’s an evangelist.’

Scott Dawson is a well known evangelist who is taking the gospel into the political arena.

Dawson is running for Alabama governor, according to the Christian Post. Dawson said he is aware of the stereotypes labeled to public figures and said he did not want to be known as “politician.”

“I want to be a public servant,” he said. “The ark was built by amateurs. The Titanic was built by professionals.”

Dawson has led huge Christian crusades in NFL stadium and  conference halls. Walt Merrell, district attorney for Covington County, supports his campaign for governor fully.

“I don’t believe there’s anybody out there more connected with the people than he is. He has such a strong network throughout the state, and it’s based on personal relationships that he’s spent a lot of time developing,” he said.

He is involved in his community and fights for issues such as gun safety. “I preach life change,” Dawson said. “There has to be a turning point. Alabama’s at a turning point. Alabama needs good news. I share good news. Maybe we need a governor who’s an evangelist.”

When asked about his peer, evangelist Acton Bowen, who was just arrested on child sexual abuse claims, Dawson said he is praying for Bowen’s family.

“When I got the news it surprised me — then I had to decide how to respond. Preacher? Politician? Neither. We respond as a follower of Christ. When I heard that I was listed as an adviser to him, it was a total surprise, but again, I am the least impacted. Let’s pray for Acton and his wife,” he urged his campaign team.”

WATCH: John Oliver exposes Trump’s lies about vote-by-mail — and the Fox News ‘cult’ claiming the election is already ‘rigged’

Published

on

"Last Week Tonight" host John Oliver's main story Sunday refuted President Donald Trump's latest crusade against vote-by-mail. Trump announced on Twitter that the more people who vote in an election, the more Republicans tend to lose. So, he wants fewer people to have access to the ballot in November, even if people are too scared to go out during the coronavirus crisis.

Oliver called out Missouri Gov. Mike Parson (R-MO), who outright told people not to vote if they were too afraid to vote in the local elections next week.

"Well, hold on there," Oliver interjected. "Voting is a right. It has to be easy to understand and accessible to anyone."

John Oliver rips Fox News’ Tucker Carlson for urging ‘order’ from people of color — but never demanding it of police

Published

on

John Oliver opened his Sunday show, shredding Fox News host Tucker Carlson for uring "order" among protesters, but refusing to urge "order" to police and "wannabe police" who can't stop killing people.

It's a lot, Oliver explained. "How these protests are a response to a legacy of police misconduct, both in Minneapolis and the nation at large and how that misconduct is, itself, built on a legacy of white supremacy that prioritizes the comfort of white Americans over the safety of people of color."

While some of it is complicated, Oliver conceded, most of it is "all too clear."

Cars set on fire blocks from White House as DC protests turn violent

Published

on

The Washington, D.C. protests turned violent as the city approached the 11 p.m. curfew the mayor instituted Sunday afternoon.

The policy of D.C. police is that when they are attacked, they advance forward. So, when fireworks were fired, the line of officers began pushing the protesters back further from the White House. Behind the line of police officers also stand a line of National Guard troops that President Donald Trump has demanded stand watch in the city.

Lights that normally shine on the White House have also been turned off, reporters revealed.
