The contentious tone of the presidential campaign is spilling over to the candidates’ supporters – this time spawning a war of words between Cruz surrogate Glenn Beck and Trump supporter Robert Jeffress.
Glenn Beck was campaigning for Ted Cruz in Utah last week, and the talk-show host said this to his fellow Mormons: “So many Christians have been standing up. But all throughout the South, the evangelicals are not listening to their God.”
That didn’t set well with Dallas megachurch pastor Dr. Robert Jeffress, who started his critique with one of Beck’s turns of phrase.
“He said Southern evangelicals are not listening to their God,” the pastor emphasized during an interview with OneNewsNow. “At least that was an honest admission by Beck that there is a difference between the real God of the Bible and the imaginary god of the Book of Mormon.”
While it’s debatable if Beck was making a theological statement, he was clearly taking aim at Southern evangelicals who support Trump – chief among them, Jeffress.
