Angry Evangelical Pastors: Praise The Lord! Also, Watch Democrats Burn In Hell!

Ed Young, head pastor of Houston's Second Baptist Church, expressed anger at Democrats for voting in Democrats, calling them "basically godless." He was joined in his anger by several other pastors disappointed with 2018 midterm results.

Ed Young is the head pastor of Houston’s Second Baptist Church. Second Baptist Church has about 65,000 members across five campuses. It has an annual budget of $53 million. Young races between the “campuses” on his own personal helicopter.

A few years ago, a family won a giant lawsuit against Second Baptist because one of the youth ministers was messing around with little girls. It soon came out that the church knew about it and pawned the youth minister off on another church just to hide him out.

From his wide experiences with the ungodly, Pastor Ed Young passed judgement.

For white Christian Republican pastors stung by election results, it is no longer enough to just say Democrats are wrong.

The Democratic Party is “basically godless,” a former president of the Southern Baptist Convention said in defeat on election night.

Young made it clear that this applied to “every Democrat I know.” Which, considering that he lives in Houston means he does get out much. Young’s favorite Republic congressman, John Culberson, lost and every judicial seat was won by a Democrat.

So, maybe he’s preaching to the wind?
