Last week, John Hagee hosted his annual Christians United for Israel summit in Washington, D.C and during the event, Matthew Hagee conducted a short interview with Rep. Louie Gohmert about the recent nuclear agreement that the United States and several other nations struck with Iran.
That interview, which aired on last week’s “Hagee Hotline” program, contained a declaration from Gohmert that the only way that Congress can hope to stop the Iran deal from going forward is through an act of God, along with a warning that God will punish America for betraying Israel.
“We have made it next to impossible to stop this Iranian deal,” the Texas Republican said, “so if it gets stopped, as it should, God needs to get the glory and praise. And everybody that’s here with Citizens United for Israel [sic] will be the hands and feet to make that happen.”
“This is a horrible bill,” Gohmert continued, “and I know a lot of people think the United States is the sole superpower, we’re going to be here forever, but you know no country lasts forever. We have betrayed Israel so often … We have betrayed Israel over and over and we’re in trouble for that.”
