Trump Spiritual Adviser: The Harvey Weinstein Scandal Was Caused By Removing School Prayer

Spiritual adviser to President Donald Trump and Texas megachurch pastor Robert Jeffress claimed that the Harvey Weinstein scandal was caused by the removal of prayer from American public schools.

Spiritual adviser to President Donald Trump and Texas megachurch pastor Robert Jeffress claimed that the Harvey Weinstein scandal was caused by the removal of prayer from American public schools.

Jeffress even linked the 1962 Engle v. Vitale decision on school-sponsored prayer to the numerous allegations of sexual assault against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, saying that what Weinstein is alleged to have done was the “natural result” of the nation having “untethered itself from the absolute truths of God’s word” when “secularists” and “infidels” removed state-sponsored prayer from schools. The irony of these remarks coming from a strong supporter of Trump seems to have been lost on Jeffress.
