Romney: Pastor Who Prayed At Embassy Opening A 'Religious Bigot'

More than 40 Palestinians were killed in a protest in the hours before Monday's ceremony. Israeli troops fired on protesters attempting to cross the border fence, killing at least 41.

Not that anyone in the Trump administration cares. The White House's casual disinterest in Israel's responsibility for these deaths is congruous with Jeffress' bigotry toward Muslims and non-Christians. He also is a rabid homophobe who makes no effort to hide his hatred for all things LGBTQ.

Jeffress denied saying "anything derogatory about the Jewish people" and spoke at the ceremony about the "sameness" Jews and Christians have in believing the same God. He once compared gay sex to plugging a US television into a European outlet and has called gay sex a sin.

Maduro is blaming everyone for his mess, mostly the USA, but "accusing America of creating Venezuela's crisis is about as fair as accusing O.J. Simpson of murdering Princess Diana - I'm not saying it would be completely out of character, it just happens to not be true in this particular instance", Oliver said.

"When it comes to how we should deal with evil doers, the Bible, in the book of Romans, is very clear: God has endowed rulers full power to use whatever means necessary - including war - to stop evil", Jeffress said.

"This is nothing more or less than a recognition of reality", Trump said.

"It's critical that America recognize what God has already established - the land of Jerusalem belongs to Israel", Laurie said. He blamed Hurricane Katrina on LGBTQ people. John McCain (R-AZ), denounced Hagee in 2008 after Hagee endorsed him for president.

For many evangelical Christians, the issues of recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital and relocating the US embassy to that city have been top priority for years. It's a theological one.

At the time, Jeffress said he was planning to give a sermon in which he would talk about "how a Christian should vote".

Of course, nearly no one made any noise about the prominent of Hagee and Jeffress at the embassy ceremony. Ivanka Trump, her husband Jared Kushner and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin will be among those attending the ceremony Monday.

The only major Republican to complain was Mitt Romney. Arguing that Islam as a religion is inherently violent, Jeffress said during one TV debate that prophet Muhammad "was nothing but a bloodthirsty warlord who beheaded 600 Jews who would not follow him into battle".

Not his comments on LGBTQ people, of course.
