Kentucky preacher posts unhinged rant about children going to hell after walking by peewee football game

Published

on

A Kentucky Baptist preacher has faced backlash after recording a live video in which he complained about a youth football game, saying that the children were going to hell and that the cheerleaders were dressed as “prostitutes.”

It started when Pastor Ernie Spence of Fellowship Baptist Church in Kentucky passed by Trimble County High School in the Northwest corner of the Bluegrass State and saw children laughing and playing.

To this Christian, it was an affront to his beliefs and demonstrated why “drugs are so bad, fornication and all sorts of ungodliness.”

“I see what’s wrong with America today,” he said. “Right here it is, time to get ready and go to church and the grandstands back here are full up of people. You got all these young’uns out here chasing balls, and it don’t amount to a hill of beans.”

Spence said that the children were more concerned with “their football God” than his God.

“So whenever your children have got more emphasis on what’s going on in the football field than they do the house of God, and people jumpin’ and cheerin’ up and carryin’ on like a bunch of banshee Indians over a kid just running and catching a ball,” he said. “That’s pure ignorance! Pure ignorance!”

Spence said the children would go to hell as a result of their enthusiasm for youth football.

“When these children are burning in Hell, how do you think you gonna feel? But, oh boy, junior can catch a ball, and junior could run. Junior runs straight to hell and you don’t care.”

Trimble was also angry at the 7-year-old girls who were cheerleading at the game.

“You think it’s something your little girl can dress up like a prostitute? That’s perversion out there whenever they shake their pompoms and shout and cheer and stuff. You need to get them in the house of God, friend,” he said. “Raise your family up in the house of God.”

As the woman who posted the video pointed out, the “prostitute” uniforms were a t-shirt and shorts.

Parents of the children immediately started messaging Spence to bash him.

Spence attempted to delete the post but it was captured and posted by someone. Watch below.

BUSTED: These 10 GOP senators said Ukraine quid pro quo was a red line before Bolton bombshell

Published

on

The Washington Post's Philip Bump has tracked down statements from ten different Republican senators who in the past indicated that impeachment charges against President Donald Trump would be far more serious if it could be proven there was a quid-pro-quo agreement that involved exchanging the release of foreign aid to Ukraine for the investigation of former Vice President Joe Biden.

All of the statements flagged by Bump came before this week's bombshell revelation that former national security adviser John Bolton's upcoming book will reportedly say the president directly linked Ukraine aid to the Biden investigation.

Law professor slams Trump team’s ‘distortions of facts’ as they try to shoot down congressional subpoenas

Published

on

Writing for The Atlantic, University of Missouri Law professor Frank Bowman excoriated the White House legal team for their rationale against honoring congressional subpoenas in the impeachment inquiry.

"On Saturday, Trump’s lawyer Pat Philbin tried to extinguish any flickers of enlightened self-interest among Republicans by arguing that Trump was entitled to stonewall the House because the House hadn’t properly authorized its own subpoenas," wrote Bowman. "Like so many contentions of the president’s defenders, this is malarkey thinly draped with plausible-sounding distortions of facts, rules, court opinions, and the Constitution itself."

Trump has been mysteriously ignoring Melania’s initiatives in his major speeches: report

Published

on

According to a report on Politico, an analysis of Donald Trump's State of the Union addresses shows that the president has neglected to boost his wife's most notable achievement in her three years as first lady -- apparently at the urging of aides who feel it is best not to bring it up.

Traditionally, first ladies take on a cause after settling in and Melania Trump has been no different, launching her "Be Best" campaign aimed at halting online bullying. However, that campaign has been ignored by the president in all of his major speeches where he has touted his administration's accomplishments.
