Pastors praying over Trump

President Donald Trump’s spiritual advisor Paula White and Terri Copeland Pearsons, eldest daughter of Kenneth Copeland, told the congregation at Eagle Mountain International Church to “vote red.”

Her comment was a violation of the Johnson Amendment which is a provision in the U.S. tax code that “prohibits all 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations from endorsing or opposing political candidates.”

“We’re going to vote for the team that will most press that agenda through because it’s the judges that have brought so much of the ungodliness into our nation,” Pearsons said.

“You see the hand of God in all this,” White said.

She added that California passed a law, “That says the Bible is a book of hate speech and to ban the sale of it.”

Pearsons then continued: “Vote red. I can say that to you without any fear that the IRS is going to take away your right to donate to this church and deduct it from your taxes and without you being audited because of it. That’s over and that’s because our president did that for us.”

Published

on

Candidates to become Britain's next prime minister clashed over Brexit strategy at their first debate on Sunday but the frontrunner, Boris Johnson, dodged the confrontation.

The 90-minute debate on Channel 4 featured the five remaining candidates and an empty podium for Johnson, the gaffe-prone former foreign secretary and former mayor of London.

In sometimes ill-tempered exchanges, four of the five candidates said they would seek to renegotiate the draft Brexit divorce deal agreed with Brussels even though EU leaders have repeatedly ruled this out.
