Romney Tweet about Robert Jeffress Falsely Paints Faithful Christians as Bigoted Extremists

Pastors and Christian leaders from across the country told Breitbart News about the significance of President Donald Trump's announcement in December to move the embassy, which opens officially on Monday, the 70th anniversary of the establishment of the state of Israel.

Romney said, "Robert Jeffress says 'you can't be saved by being a Jew, ' and 'Mormonism is a heresy from the pit of hell.' He's said the same about Islam". Islam, he said, "is a religion that promotes pedophelia, sex with children".

GJELTEN: A State Department official today defended the choice of Jeffress to pray at the embassy saying, Jerusalem is a holy city for millions of people around the world.

The 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, who is Mormon, expressed his opposition to Jeffress addressing the embassy ceremony. (Many modern Muslim scholars disagree about her age.) The pastor has also said that Mormons, Muslims and Hindus "worship a false god".

Anthony Weiner, both of whom saw their political careers ended by sex scandals. "Wait and see, worse than Spitzer or Weiner". According to Gleason, this included contacts between him and Cohen about 'two women that were sexually victimized by Mr.

Jeffress responded to Romney's criticisms.

The decision by President Trump to move the embassy from Tel Aviv fulfilled a major campaign promise and handed a victory to hard-line pro-Israel Americans, as well as conservative and evangelical Christians who have long wanted the United States' diplomatic home to be in Jerusalem. Israeli soldiers shot and killed dozens Palestinians during mass protests along the Gaza border on Monday.

Speaking with The Christian Post in 2011 about the controversy he had garnered from calling Mormonism a "cult", Jeffress said that what people find offensive is the notion that not everyone is going to Heaven.

Jeffress, a leading evangelical supporter of Donald Trump, said without the president's "determination, resolve, courage, we would not be here today". I'm going to be thanking God for the strong leadership of Benjamin Netanyahu, who is absolutely determined to protect Israel.

The opening of the USA embassy in Jerusalem is extraordinarily controversial. Jeffress also spoke before a Trump rally in September 2016, after which Trump said, "I love that guy!" "Although they may have embraced different lies, they have rejected the same truth".

"You can't make the blessing on every 'kushi" you see - in America you see one every five minutes, so you make it only on a person with a white father and mother, ' he said, according to the Times of Israel.

While he did not address Romney's comments, the First Baptist pastor appeared on "Fox & Friends" on Monday morning and talked about his prayer at the opening of the embassy.

The outrage over Jeffress comes amidst a backlash against the Trump adminstration's embrace of an Israeli cleric who also made racist remarks about black people.
