During his recent appearance on Jim Bakker’s television program, End Times pastor Perry Stone declared that the only solution to the problems of gun violence and drug use in America is to start teaching Christian scripture in the public schools.
After saying that America’s inner cities are plagued by “the same type of spirit” that was at work in Sodom and Gomorrah, Stone insisted that the solution is “to allow teaching of scripture” in school.
“There’s got to be something breaking into the public schools,” he said, claiming that God spared the life of a congregant of a church run by a friend of his during the recent school shooting in Texas because “she’s a really good Christian girl.”
“The sons and daughters being touched by the spirit of God is the remedy for this whole thing,” Stone said. “In the state of West Virginia, the drug problem is so bad, in some of those mountain schools, they are letting young preachers come in and hold services in the auditorium during school time. I know people are going to scream, ‘Oh God, separation of church and state.’ Look, when you’ve got kids dying, forget separation of church and state! When you’ve got overdoses of 15-year-olds, forget separation of church and state! And the great thing is hundreds of kids up in those mountains are coming to know the Lord.”
