Right-wing pastor George Pearsons dedicated his Sunday sermon to railing against the supposedly rampant voter fraud that has prevented President Donald Trump from winning reelection, claiming that people in Heaven and even the ballots themselves are crying out against the alleged fraud.
Pearsons, the son-in-law of televangelist Kenneth Copeland and senior pastor at Copeland’s Eagle Mountain International Church in Texas, has claimed that God is “not happy” with what happened during the election and he has therefore been using his church services and television programs to endlessly rail against the results.
During his sermon, Pearsons took a passage from the book of James that says ‘the wages you failed to pay the workers who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord Almighty” and rewrote it to make it about the election.
“Behold, the ballots of the laborers who have voted in this election that have been kept back by fraud cry out. And the cries of them which have voted are entered into the Lord of the armies of the host of Heaven,” Pearsons proclaimed. “So not only are the voters crying out, not only are we raising our voices over this corruption and this fraud, but the ballots are doing the same thing.”
“There are mail-in ballots,” he continued. “Some people in some places receive four or five of those, and they used four and five of those. Let’s say that they got four in the mail and they sent the four in, there’s three of them that are crying out, ‘Wrong! This is wrong. This is not right. This is deception.’ It’s crying out. There are others through software that votes have changed, you better believe those ballots are crying out, ‘This is a lie. This is not right. This is not right.’ All the way down the line, even to people who have died and gone to Heaven. … Especially if those people were born again, they’re in Heaven right now and they’re crying out. They’re crying out against the injustice of this. You cannot come against the Lord of the Sabbath, the Lord of angel armies. Angels have been dispatched; they are out there. That is why that voice is crying out. It is not just the people. It is the ballot itself.”
