Megachurch Pastor Robert Jeffress

Right-wing megachurch pastor Robert Jeffress  told an audience of students at Liberty University this week that the horrors of the 9/11 terror attacks were God’s punishment for abortion.

The Fox News regular spoke at LU’s convocation on Tuesday, warning students that Supreme Court rulings banning organized prayer and Bible study in public schools, legalizing abortion, and striking down bans on gay sex, have made America’s complete collapse unavoidable.

Jeffress claimed that the granting of such rights to women and LGBT people:

“so weakened the moral and spiritual infrastructure of our nation that our collapse is inevitable,” explaining that the 9/11 terrorist attack was God’s judgment upon America for the sin of abortion.

“All you have to do is look in history to see what God does with a nation that sanctions the killing of its own children. Just look at the nation of Israel … Because they got involved in the worship of Moloch, the pagan god, and they sacrificed their children on the altar, what did God do? He raised up the godless Babylonians and Assyrians to bring judgement on his own people.”People ask me all the time, ‘Well, I just don’t understand why God wouldn’t protect our nation and he would allow these radical Muslims in 2001 to kill 3,000 of our citizens and why God doesn’t protect us. Surely, God doesn’t use pagans to bring judgment upon his own people, does he?’”

“Just read the Bible,” he said. “God will not allow sin to go unpunished and he certainly won’t allow the sacrifice of children to go unpunished.”

This is a drum that Jeffress has been banging frequently, and over time. Earlier this month, he appeared on James Dobson’s “Family Talk” radio program to promote his new book, “Countdown to the Apocalypse: Why ISIS and Ebola Are Only the Beginning”. During the interview, he argued that equal marriage is evidence we are at the End Times. He told Dobson and his listeners:

“I think the greatest sign of the End Times that we see in our country right now is the increasing moral disorder in our country that we’re seeing played out in our culture right now.

Especially in the realm of gay marriage. What was thought to be unbelievable just 10 or 20 years ago, our culture is now celebrating. A perversion that was once condemned is now celebrated.”

The relentless pattern of Jeffress’ bigotry serves to reveal his business model:

  1. conjure an outrageous proclamation out of thin air,
  2. write a book about it,
  3. get air time to double down in the outrageous claims, all to ultimately achieve
  4. book sales

The problem is that Jeffress has a reach in the tens of millions, thanks to Fox News. It is this never-ending scaremongering that stalls progress on issues that matter for millions of Americans.
