Last week, televangelist Jim Bakker reacted to the presidential election results by prophesying that God will punish people who live in counties that voted for Hillary Clinton.

Bakker pointed to a map that showed the results of the election by county and said that “if you live in the blue—any spot that’s blue—I would say, ‘Oh God, help me. Oh God forgive me.’ Because those are the ones who came against the will of God in this election.”

“I just want to tell you, God has spoken to me, I’ve seen under the ground in California, in LA, and God spoke to me that in Los Angeles alone there is going to be such an earthquake come that literally the big buildings will be laying on their sides, all of LA is going to collapse,” he added.

Bakker’s cohost Zach Drew agreed, warning that counties that voted for Clinton will receive God’s judgment: “If you look at California, the east side of California is red by county and the west side is blue. And where do all of the fault lines, where do all the prophetic words happen to plant themselves? It’s on the far-west of the West Coast. It’s the blue. Now you got to understand, judgment is not coming for them because they voted for Hillary Clinton, it’s because they voted for a platform. They voted for a platform that is so incredibly pro-abortion, anti-Bible.”

  1. I wonder why all these "Christians" see only evil in the Democrats but see no evil in a man who committed adultery not once but two times, that we know of. Isn't that one of the Ten Commandments? So Thou Shalt Not Kill also is acceptable to be ignored as he promises to rid the world of ISIS even it means killing their families. Notice how he never even mentions his mother? Who is his mother? Need i go on? Nah! I wonder when the media will go to see Charles Manson for his opinion?

  2. It’s time to just admit that most “televangelists” are neither Christian nor religious at all, just another group of shysters bilking people of money for their own gain in the name of God, and feeding off of the same racists and xenophobic fears that drive people to vote for hateful policies and formalized discrimination. As a practicing Christian, I find his rhetoric abhorrent and antithetical to the teachings of Jesus. He is no more practicing Christianity than ISIS is practicing Islam.
