Before the 2012 election, right-wing pastor Jim Garlow was telling anyone who would listen that the re-election of President Obama would literally spell the end of America. After Obama’s re-election, Garlow even declared that America was now “clinically dead” and the only thing that could save it was a miraculous resurrection.
Garlow, it turns out, is still hoping for such a resurrection, telling American Family Radio’s “Today’s Issues” program yesterday that this next election will determine whether or not America is finally lost forever.
“People say we’re at a crossroads,” Garlow said. “We’re way past the crossroads. Our last free exit was way back on the freeway and now we’re driving at a very high rate of speed through signs that are saying, ‘The bridge is out, the bridge is out, the bridge is out’ and we’re continuing forward.”
“I saw 2012,” he continued, “as the day the body died and now we have a limited time for resuscitation. We went past the point in 2012 and 2016 is can these bones breath again, is there a chance that we can raise this back to life? Can we put the shocker on the heart and get things going again? Discerning people know that’s where we are.”
