Brigitte Gabriel, the head of the grassroots anti-Muslim group ACT for America, was the guest on televangelist Jim Bakker’s program for two days last week, where she focused in particular on her efforts to stop the resettlement of Muslim refugees in the U.S.
Gabriel attacked the charities, many of them faith-based, that work with the government to resettle refugees, claiming that “it’s all about money” for them.
Bakker agreed, announcing, “Listen, write it on the screen, Mr. Director, or the editors, or who whoever works on this show, ‘The love of money is the root of all evil.’” He speculated that these religious charities don’t “understand the infiltration that’s already taken place” with refugees.
“I think if this election doesn’t change things, I don’t see America surviving as we knew it for much longer,” Bakker said. “It is not, anyway. Christian America is no longer, of course, Christian America.”
“This election is an election about survival,” Gabriel, a Trump supporter, agreed. “And not just the survival of the United States, but the survival of western civilization, because America is the superpower of western civilization. And this is why this is our chance to make sure we put someone in the White House who understands how to protect the country.”
