Carl Gallups, a far-right pastor who has been embraced by Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, spoke with Charlottesville, Virginia, radio host Rob Schilling on Friday about the Obama administration's recent directive on transgender rights in public schools, which he said was the sign of the impending End Times and a possible clue about something wrong in Obama’s “personal life.”
“For years I’ve been saying, ‘Look, look, we’re living in very prophetic times,’” Gallups said. “Israel is back in the land, Russia and China are in the Middle East, ISIS has exploded, Christianity is being exterminated, on and on down the list you can go … And so, now, we turn to what Jesus said in Luke 17. He said, ‘Look, in the very last days before my return, it’s going to be just like it was in the days of Lot, Sodom and Gomorrah, the spirit of Sodom and Gomorrah will sweep the planet.’ And we’re watching that happen before our eyes.”
He said that “it’s not just Christians” who are upset about policies allowing transgender people to use the bathroom that matches their gender identity because even “ultra-liberal people … don’t want their little six-year-old girl molested in the bathroom because some hairy guy decides he feels like a girl that day and follows their little pretty little girl into the bathroom under federal decree.”
“So, you’re right,” he told Schilling, “there’s a certain order, there are things, there are boundaries and borders [set up by God] that individuals may cross over them, little subcultures within cultures may cross over them and we kind of just say, ‘Well, to each his own.’ But if a culture crosses over these borders, if a society legalizes, celebrates, embraces these borders, then I think the judgment of God is right behind it.”
Earlier in the interview, Gallups speculated that there is “something” in Obama’s “personal life that would cause him to be absolutely fixated upon this sexual deviancy and this danger to our children and this perversion and insanity and this whole fixation upon this radical transgender movement.”
He hinted that this “something” might have to do with pornography, noting that the president’s official Twitter account, which is run by staffers at the Organizing for Action organization, has been found to follow some porn stars among the more than 636,000 accounts it follows.
“So, it’s demonic,” Gallups said, “and there obviously is a fixation upon this with the man in the White House now. I know there have been reports in the mainstream media that Obama follows pornography sites on his Twitter account, that’s been alleged in mainstream media. I just don’t know. But there’s got to be something there. And again, I’m just speculating on that end, but it is surreal, isn’t it, Rob?”
