Prosperity gospel pastor’s husband demands loyalty to Trump: ‘Let’s not judge’ him for things he does and says

Journey keyboardist Jonathan Cain credits his wife — prosperity gospel pastor Paula White — with leading a faith revival in Washington under President Donald Trump.

Cain, who cowrote the group’s anthemic 1981 hit “Don’t Stop Believin’,” explained his wife’s spiritual role to the president in an interview with The Tennessean.

“She’s been called upon, I believe, good or bad, she’s been called by the Kingdom to serve,” Cain said. “She is letting grace in the door in Washington and I’ve seen it, uttering the name of Jesus Christ on the mall of Washington — it’s amazing.”

The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer told the newspaper that White, who leads New Destiny Christian Center in Florida, was the president’s top spiritual adviser.

“We have to understand that Paula’s there to minister to the president and to pray over him,” Cain said. “She’s the one he trusts for prayer and she prays over him, and she brings mighty men of God to pray. Who are we to say the president doesn’t need prayer?”

The 68-year-old Cain admitted that Trump — a thrice-married reality TV star who’s being sued by a porn actress over a hush money payout and is under investigation for possible election law violations — was not perfect, but he urged fellow Christians to trust the president.

“That’s what makes me crazy,” he said. “Let’s not judge. Why are we the ones throwing the stones? This is our president and with his faults, with his mistakes, with the things he says, he is our president. We are to honor the authority of our leaders, we are to honor those leaders. They’ve been chosen by God.”

He assured Christians that his megachurch pastor wife was taking care of the president’s spiritual well-being.

“Paula’s in there doing the best she can do and taking care of his soul,” Cain said. “Not his politics, not his rhetoric — his soul. If he leans on her for that, that’s a good thing, that is a really good thing. She brings prayer into the White House, I think it’s remarkable. I applaud her tenacity and it hasn’t been easy watching her get yanked around by the swamp, and yet she prevails. She’ll overcome. I stay in my lane on that one.”

Cain, who says his wife lets other men of faith pastor him, then asked the newspaper’s readers to buy his new memoir titled after Journey’s best-known song.

Trump’s Amy Coney Barrett pick for Supreme Court might backfire: analysts

Published

on

President Donald Trump announced Saturday that he would nominate Amy Coney Barrett to fill Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s vacant Supreme Court seat. Trump made his pick official during an event at the White House Rose Garden.

“As Amy has said, being a judge takes courage. You are not there to decide cases as you may prefer, you are there to do your duty, and to follow the law, wherever it may take you. That is exactly what Judge Barrett will do on the U.S. Supreme Court.”

He continued: “No matter the issue, no matter the case before her. I am supremely confident that Judge Barrett will issue rulings based solely upon a fair reading of the law. She will defend the sacred principle of equal justice for citizens of every race, color, religion and creed.”

Senate Dems blast ‘corrupt’ nomination of Amy Coney Barrett: ‘This entire process is illegitimate’

Published

on

President Donald Trump on Saturday nominated Judge Amy Coney Barrett to replace Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the United States Supreme Court -- and Democrats were livid.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) linked the nomination to the Affordable Care Act and the COVID-19 pandemic.

"A vote for Judge Amy Coney Barrett is a vote to eliminate health care for millions in the middle of a pandemic," Schumer wrote. "Democrats are fighting for Americans' health care."

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), the ranking member on the Senate Judiciary Committee, ripped the nomination for coming so close to the election.
