Pastor Robert Jeffress Says ‘It Doesn’t Matter’ If Trump Had Sex With Porn Star While Married To Melania

Pastor Robert Jeffress, a longtime supporter of President Donald Trump, claims that Trump’s alleged two-year adultery with porn star Stormy Daniels is “totally irrelevant” (more video below).

A smiling Jeffress told Fox News:

Evangelicals still believe in the commandment: thou shalt not have sex with a porn star. However, whether this president violated that commandment or not is totally irrelevant to our support of him.

Jeffress insisted that Christians supported Trump because of his “policies” and his “strong leadership.” which allegedly includes paying a $130,000 “hush agreement” settlement to Daniels via lawyer Michael Cohen.

Jeffress said all sinners need forgiveness, but failed to mention that Trump has never asked for forgiveness.

Fox News contributor Juan Williams brought up the reported payoff from Trump to Daniels, but Jeffress brushed it aside:

Even if it’s proven to be true, it doesn’t matter because of what I just said! A blue dress was not enough to turn you into a red Republican, and I believe anything Stormy Daniels has will not be enough to turn red Republicans into blue Democrats. This is about the policies and issues.

Williams countered:

No, it’s not. What did Christ do? He threw out the moneychangers. Pastor, you cannot sell your integrity, your Christian values and say “oh because President Trump is anti-abortion I’ll support him no matter what.” What happened to the principles? What happened to your love of people of character?

Jeffress claimed Trump stood for principles:

We are supporting him because of the principles that he stands for, not because of personal behavior. We all fall short!

Williams noted that Trump publicly said he has never asked for forgiveness, a fact that Jeffress objected to.

In 2008, Jeffress lectured about how a president should be a Christian, which was why he opposed Republican candidate Mitt Romney, notes Right Wing Watch (video below):

The hypocrisy of some evangelical leaders … who, for the last eight years of the Bush administration, have been telling us how important it is to have an evangelical Christian in office who reads his Bible every day.

And now, suddenly, the same leaders are telling us that a candidate’s faith really isn’t that important. In fact, one of those leaders—a good friend of mine—said on national television, when it came to supporting Mitt Romney, he said, “Well, after all, we are not electing a theologian in chief, we are electing a commander in chief.”

My fear is such a sudden U-turn is going to give people a case of voter whiplash. I think people have to decide, and Christian leaders have to decide once and for all, whether a candidate’s faith is really important.

Christians need to remember that the kingdom of God is not going to come riding in on Air Force One.

The danger in all of this discussion is that Christians sometimes are willing to sacrifice the temporal for the eternal, that in order to get their candidate elected, to enact those laws that they feel are crucial, somehow we fool ourselves into thinking we are going to bring about the kingdom of God here on earth.

We are not going to do that. I’m not willing to trade people’s eternal destiny for some temporary change in the law.
