Supreme Court Vacancies Resulted From His Decree, Claims Dutch Sheets

Right-wing dominionist pastor Dutch Sheets spoke at the Mississippi State Ekklesia conference earlier this month, where he recounted how a decree he issued in 2005 created two openings on the Supreme Court.

In 2002, Sheets said, “God had assigned me to pray for the Supreme Court” and told him that “the greatest stronghold of the enemy ruling our nation was in the Supreme Court.”

“There is no gate that has allowed more evil to enter our nation than the Supreme Court,” he said. “Regardless of what you think about President Trump, one of the primary reasons he’s in there is the Court, to shift the Supreme Court, to appoint the right judges to finish the process of shifting that Court.”

Sheets claimed that in 2005, a friend of his received a “word from the Lord” that Sheets was to stand outside the Supreme Court and issue a five-point decree, so Sheets dutifully traveled to Washington, D.C., to carry out his “assignment.”

“I made all five decrees four times on each side of the Court, both sides, front and back,” Sheets said. “The last of the five decrees was, ‘The siege against the Court is about to become a suddenly.’ The siege is about to become a suddenly. Let me just say this, if there is no siege, there is no suddenly. Within two weeks of that, [Sandra Day] O’Connor resigned, to everyone’s surprise …  And before that seat could even be filled, [William] Rehnquist died and all of a ‘sudden,’ we had two seats empty. A siege became a suddenly.”
