Right-wing MorningStar Ministries Pastor Rick Joyner, recently appeared on “The Jim Bakker Show” to claim that God told him in a dream that He wants all Christian veterans to join up and lead local militias, because God expects Christians to take sides in the “upcoming civil war.”
Gee, can anyone spell “sedition?” Now, it’s a pretty safe bet Donald Trump can’t, but it sure sounds like Rick Joyner’s got it down. So, it seems Pastor Joyner had a dream that God wants him to tell American Christians to prepare to kill fellow Americans who don’t fully share in Pastor Joyner’s religious beliefs? Now, I’m admittedly no theologian, but his dreams sure do seem quite a bit different than the ones Dr. Martin Luther King had.
Of course, if fighting does break out, don’t expect Pastor Joyner to be anywhere even close to where any shooting might take place. After all, his job is to shoot off his mouth, not a loaded gun. And, while I’m pretty sure not many folks are actually crazy enough to heed Joyner’s call, don’t allow yourself to become too comfortable. After all, keep in mind it doesn’t really take a whole lot of matches - to set a really big fire.
