Robert Jeffress Plays The Victim, Says Mitt Romney Is Just 'Bitter … Over 2012 Election'
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that "this is a day that will be engraved in our national memory for generations", speaking at the ceremony in Jerusalem.
President Donald Trump and Pastor Robert Jeffress, left, participate in the Celebrate Freedom Rally at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C., on July 1, 2017.
Former Southern Baptist Convention President Jack Graham tweeted support for Jeffress and his prayer, saying the fellow member of Trump's evangelical advisory team "boldly stands for truth" and "is representing Jesus". He even preached at a private service for the President-elect and his family on Inauguration Day in 2017, shortly before Trump took the oath of office.
The 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, who is Mormon, expressed his opposition to Jeffress addressing the embassy ceremony.
In the past few years he implied that secular women behave like animals due to their immodest dress and claimed 2016 that according to Jewish law, non-Jews were forbidden from living in Israel.
"I think Pastor Jeffress has had a strong relationship with many people in the faith community", deputy press secretary Raj Shah said during Monday's White House briefing.
In a tweet Sunday night, the former MA governor who is now running for a Senate seat from Utah criticized Jeffress for his remarks about Jews, Mormons and Islam.
"Today, we finally acknowledge the obvious: that Jerusalem is Israel's capital", Trump said later about his decision. And the fact that I and tens of millions of evangelical Christians still believe that is not bigoted and it's not newsworthy.
"Jeffress said Mormonism has never been part of Christianity".
Jeffress spoke with Fox News Radio about his participation in the embassy opening. "Such a religious bigot should not be giving the prayer that opens the United States Embassy in Jerusalem", Romney, who is also a Utah Senate candidate and a Mormon, tweeted on Sunday.
He is said to have made more than 2,000 media appearances - regularly on the right-leaning Fox News cable channel - and has written 23 books. "Not only do religions like Mormonism, Islam, Judaism, Hinduism - not only do they lead people away from from God, they lead people to an eternity of separation from God in Hell", he said in 2010.
"In that prayer, I'm going to be recounting God's history of faithfulness to his people, the Israelites", he said.
The move of the USA embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem has been decided since 1995, but each president since then has postponed it.
Walmart likely to take Flipkart public in as early as 4 years
The IPO should be done at no less a valuation than that at which Walmart invested in the Indian e-commerce firm, the filing said. For at least two years after the transactions, two of the Walmart-appointed directors will be unaffiliated with Walmart.
Avengers: Infinity War - Gamora Really Dead?
This must have definitely gone OTT over the superstar, having not watched any of the previous movies, we assume. They also rep the No. 9 western release of all time in the Middle Kingdom after just three days.
