Pastor Who Prayed At US Embassy In Jerusalem Faces Controversy

Mitt Romney calls Trump's pastor pick for historic event a 'bigot' - here's his response

Shep Smith: Jeffress views on other religious groups, LGBT community 'are well-documented'

By being completely objective and just reporting the facts, Fox News anchor Shepard Smith made clear what a awful choice Robert Jeffress was to deliver the opening prayer at the dedication of the U.S. Embassy Monday in Jerusalem.

Robert Jeffress says "you can't be saved by being a Jew", and "Mormonism is a heresy from the pit of hell".

Long before Jeffress began defending Trump on cable news, he made headlines for attacking other Americans whose faith is different from his own - something former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney noted Sunday on Twitter.

"Historic Christianity has taught for two, 000 years that salvation is thru religion in Christ alone".

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.

You may not have been paying attention to Venezuela amid all the excitement in USA politics, Oliver said, "but what is happening in Venezuela is not just extremely important, it is absolutely worth paying attention to", a tragic tale of "epic mismanagement".

President Trump's daughter, Ivanka, and her husband helped unveil the embassy's seal. They all said Judaism won't do it.

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.

Jeffress, who serves on the White House's Evangelical Advisory Board, is one of Donald Trump's most prominent faith advisers.

Trump considered Romney to be his first secretary of state.

"Today, we finally acknowledge the obvious: that Jerusalem is Israel's capital", Trump said later about his decision. He also stood by President Trump in March amid reports of his alleged affair with porn star Stormy Daniels: he publicly dismissed it as "irrelevant". "US embassy opening in Jerusalem will be covered live on [Fox News] & [Fox Business]", he wrote, advertising his favoured TV network. "A great day for Israel!"

For many evangelical Christians, the issues of recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital and relocating the USA embassy to that city have been top priority for years.

Jeffress, who is also a Fox News contributor, announced that he was picked for the occasion in an recent interview with Fox&Friends.
