Trump ‘Prayer Warriors’ Ask God To ‘Fight’ Chief Justice John Roberts If He ‘Refuses To Bow To You’ – By Peter Montgomery (Right Wing News) / January 5 2021
Intercessors for America, a pro-Trump network that is closely aligned with White House aide Paula White, published and promoted a blog post Tuesday calling on prayer for Chief Justice John Roberts and asking God to “fight against him however You deem necessary” if Roberts “refuses to bow to you.”
Intercessors for America often distributes prayer guides on political issues that urge people to pray for public officials. There’s no indication why Roberts was singled out today, but there are hints that it may have to do with inflammatory allegations made by pro-Trump lawyer Lin Wood, who has accused Roberts of being caught up in a blackmail scheme involving the rape and murder of children. Wood has released no evidence to back up those claims.
“Father, we do not know the state of Justice Roberts’ heart, but You do. We do not know what, if anything, is happening behind the scenes in his life—but You do,” reads part of a suggested prayer.
Roberts has also angered right-wing activists with his rulings upholding the Affordable Care Act, striking down some state restrictions on abortion, and holding that federal civil rights laws prohibit job discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity.
