Earlier this month, the Supreme Court issued a ruling declaring that Congress did not have the power to force the State Department to issue passports to American children born in Jerusalem and list them as having been born in Israel. The issue of Jerusalem and its position as the capital of Israel is a contentious international topic and the court majority ruled that the issue of “which governments are legitimate in the eyes of the United States and which are not” is something that is reserved for the Executive Branch and not Congress.
On his radio program last night, Glenn Beck declared that this decision has broken America’s covenant with God and therefore God will punish this nation as a result.
“I think we’re going to pay for this one,” Beck said. “We are told that if we stand against Israel what will happen to us. This is the United States government. George Washington made a contract, we’re in a covenant with God; us and the ancient nation of Israel, those are the only two that have this kind of a covenant. We will pay for this one. Things are going to get tough.”
