Jim Bakker on the Women's March on D.C.




During a recent edition of The Jim Bakker Show, televangelist and purveyor of bucket food Jim Bakker blasted the Women's March on Washington. The participants, he claimed, would be little more than women who "want to have sin" and "kill their babies".
"Everything that's going on right now is good and evil. All the political war? They want to kill Trump. You know why? Because they want to have sin. They want to kill their babies. A million women are getting ready to March in Washington D.C. right after the inauguration so that they can kill their babies ... It was in the Bible that King [gibberish] went and killed babies, and that the women of the city marched, a million women marched for the right to kill their babies. WOMEN DON'T DO THAT if it's normal! Women fight to save their babies. That's natural." 
First of all, Jim, abortion does not involve "killing babies". Second, you have no right telling women what decisions and impulses are "natural". Finally, please do a little research on the actual goals of the Women's March before making sweeping, hysterical statements about it.

    Jim Bakker? I thought he died years ago! It's truly bizarre how fundies like him have been holding Trump (aka President Pussy-grabber) up as God's elect, and the embodiment of all that's good and holy - it shows just how morally bankrupt their belief systems and Christian "values" really are.

    I'm very proud of a brother of mine who's currently living in the States (Seattle to be precise), and his girlfriend; both recently took part in the anti-Trump March (I'm guessing the one in their own city). The whole thing reminds me of a couple of protest marches I took part in here a few years back (albeit against our own joke of a (thankfully ex) leader, Tony Abbott, in that case).

    1. Zosiumus -- Jim Bakker is alive as well, selling dehydrated bucket food and warning his fans about impending societal collapse. He'll never change.

      I'm appalled by all the Religious Right figures exalting Trump as God's anointed one (and I'll have more to say about that in an upcoming post). They're content to ignore his misogyny, xenophobia, greed, and self-absorption if he promotes their interests.

      I applaud your brother and his girlfriend for marching! It's important to send Trump and Co. a message.
