San Antonio pastor travels to Jerusalem for Embassy opening

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

Trump administration officials attended the opening ceremony of the controversial new us embassy in Jerusalem on Monday - and invited several extreme Religious Right figures to play a major role in the events.

Israel launched celebrations on Sunday for the US Embassy's relocation to Jerusalem, a move whose break with world consensus was underscored by the absence of most envoys to the country from a reception hosted by Netanyahu. "This is another example of a promise made, promise kept". "Today, I am delivering". Local health officials reported 52 Palestinians getting killed when Israeli security forces fired at protesters gathered to register their displeasure against the opening of the embassy.

Although Shah said he hasn't seen the remarks in question, he assured that such comments "aren't' remarks that the president agrees with". "It is also the right thing to do".

Pastor Hagee is the founder of Christians United for Israel and of the Cornerstone Church here in San Antonio.

The decision to include Jeffress as part of the USA delegation is seen as an appeal to Trump's Christian voters in the US. You know who said that, by the way?

"I'm not against the Jewish people", Smith said June 17 at a Southern Baptist conference. I'm not a bigot, I'm not an extremist, but I do without apology embrace the most foundational belief of historic Christianity. "My hope is that one day the whole world will be this optimistic as well". But his unapologetic support of President Donald Trump over the past two years has brought him out of the shadows and into the light. "Such a religious bigot should not be giving the prayer that opens the United States Embassy in Jerusalem", Romney tweeted.

A White House delegation is in Israel for the opening of the us embassy in Jerusalem. "It's faith in Jesus Christ".

"I want to be clear". "This is not going to be one of those feel-good Last Week Tonight stories, like 'Slippers!' or 'Everything Looks Okay at the Pudding Factory, '" he warned. "Jerusalem is the shoreline of eternity".

A major proponent of the embassy move, Pastor John Hagee said in a recent interview with Breitbart that he told President Trump he would win "political immortality" for moving the embassy from Tel Aviv. The Anti-Defamation League also expressed their dissent of Jeffress and his involvement in the ceremony.
