Family Research Council president hasn’t tried hard to downplay the apocalyptic rhetoric surrounding the presidential election in November coming from the Right, as he has called President Obama “the worst president this country has ever had” and warned that his administration “will destroy this country” if “given another four years” in office. On Tuesday’s edition of Truth that Transforms, Perkins warned that the upcoming election “doesn’t so much define our future but I would have to say determines whether or not we have a future as a country.” He claimed that the Obama administration “is moving this nation not slowly but rapidly down the path of moral and fiscal bankruptcy” and urged conservatives to only vote for candidates who “share our biblical worldview”:
Perkins: This is an election that I think doesn’t so much define our future but I would have to say determines whether or not we have a future as a country. We are faced with so many significant fiscal issues that are intertwined with the moral and social foundations of this country. I’ll be very blunt. I respect the office of the President and I do believe we are to pray for those in authority, and I do, but we have an administration that is moving this nation not slowly but rapidly down the path of moral and fiscal bankruptcy. This election is going to have significant consequences on our generation and for future generations. We need to be electing candidates to every level of office, state office, local office, federal office, that share our biblical worldview and we need to have Christians presenting themselves as candidates as well, to get into this process, to stand for truth, to stand for justice and that which is right.
