Radical anti-LGBTQ activist Scott Lively appeared on the “Point Of View” radio program yesterday to discuss his campaign for governor in Massachusetts, during which he claimed to have received “spiritual confirmation” that President Trump has been transformed “into a man of God” and urged Christians to model themselves after Trump.
Lively has made his support for Trump a centerpiece of his campaign, declaring that Trump is a political genius and “God’s man” and pledging to be “the most pro-Trump governor in America,” and he reiterated that position during yesterday’s interview.
“I’m a strong supporter of President Trump,” Lively said. “I believe he was transformed from a somewhat reprobate New York liberal into a man of God, God’s man in the White House today. I saw the transformation myself—I had a spiritual confirmation, sort of an endorsement of the idea. He has shown the example of speaking boldly and not being intimidated and not backing down on the things that are important and essential.”
Evangelicals, Lively asserted, can make America great again “if Christians would simply follow that model.”
