The Family Research Council hosted Dr. David Jeremiah of Turning Point Ministries for their National Day of Prayer event, and today Jeremiah joined FRC president Tony Perkins on Washington Watch Weekly. Jeremiah has been publicizing his new book, “I Never Thought I’d See the Day: Culture at the Crossroads,” about America’s supposed downward spiral, and he even made an accompanying video series, ‘The Accountant,’ about a 1960s advertising firm that helps a Devil-like client bring down American culture.
Adding to the Religious Right’s hyperbolic rhetoric about the upcoming presidential election, Jeremiah told Perkins, who has warned that if re-elected President Obama will “destroy this country,” that the upcoming election “has the deepest ideological meaning of any election I think in the history of our nation” and if voters don’t elect the right candidate America “will no longer be America”:
Perkins: Dr. Jeremiah, I’d be ignoring the elephant in the room or the donkey in the room if I didn’t talk about the fact that this is an election year. It’s been described by many, myself included, that this is a critical election, every election is important, anytime there is a vote I think as Christians we need to be involved and their important, it determines the future of the country. I think this one is extremely important.
Jeremiah: Tony, the way I look at that is in the past we’ve said, there’s two different ways to govern this nation, we’re going to look at two different ways in this election, he’s got this way and that way. But this election that we’re about to experience has the deepest ideological meaning of any election I think in the history of our nation. This election is about what kind of nation we’re going to be and whether or not we’re going to be the nation that God created I believe us to be or whether we’re going to just adopt an entirely new format for America which in my estimation will no longer be America.
