He informed co-host Keith Mark (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET): “There is not any query there is a parallel between the abandonment of God, the abandonment of the spirit — the Native Individuals’ nice spirit — which guided our acutely aware and our soul and our choice making to do the best factor, as that religion is deserted, that is what you get: RuPaul, Al Not-So-Sharpton, Joe and Hunter Biden, the entire Democrat get together, Disney having these horrible, horrible photographs and agendas of their motion pictures for youngsters. This actually is the satan at play, and we are able to beat the satan by praying and getting again to God.
“I am not a churchgoer, however you understand what I do? I get underneath a tree nearly each evening six months a yr or in a duck blind and I pray,” Ted continued. “I pray that I’m the very best that I might be and God’s humble servant and being a conservationist, a steward of his miraculous creation. And I am a Christian. I am a God-loving man. I do not know the place the time period ‘God-fearing’ [comes from]. I do not worry God; I really like God. And I feel the additional we get away, the farther we get away, each bodily and spiritually, from religion and God, that is the place the RuPauls and the Al Not-So-Sharptons and the Hunter Bidens rule the world.

You notice that the Huge Bang couldn’t have created a coronary heart and lungs and the unbelievable escape mechanisms of those magnificent animals that God created. That was creation by the Hand of God, and also you’re pushed to take part as a servant of God. So sure, I consider in God, I am a Christian… I may provide you with many, many examples, I mustn’t have survived sure occurrences, and God saved my life and pulled me by way of. Many, many harmful conditions. He has a plan for me, He woke me up, and He continues to wake me up,”

That is why we wrote the First Modification; it is a God-given particular person proper.”

Trump that would have pulled it off with such effectiveness, such absolutism and, shall I say, aplomb. He got here in when he got here down that escalator, [and] he is nonetheless grining all these years later, and I feel we are able to all study classes from [him].”
