Rapert: 'It's More Important To Do What Is Right By God' Than By My Constituents

Earlier this month, Janet Porter hosted a 10th Anniversary Faith2Action Banquet featuring Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, as well as Arkansas State Senator Jason Rapert, the man responsible for the passage of the state's "Heartbeat Bill" over the Governor's veto.

During his remarks at the banquet, Rapert stated that it is not the will of 80,000 constituents that he represents but rather the will of God because "there's only one vote that matters and that's when I stand before the Lord at the judgment seat."

"It's more important to do what is right by God," Rapert said, "than it is to please those that would rather have me talk about pro-life but not really do much about pro-life."

He then went on to discuss the recent showdown in Texas over its own restrictive abortion legislation, saying of those who where there protesting the legislation that "I've never had a glimpse of Hell or heard a real demon, but I believe that must be what they sound like ... It's spiritual warfare":
