Robert Jeffress Faces Backlash For Inviting Sean Hannity To Church

Pastor Robert Jeffress has faced backlash for inviting Fox anchor Sean Hannity to his Dallas megachurch for an interview during Sunday Service. Jeffress, a key spiritual advisor to President Trump, was blasted for mixing worship and politics. 

"Christians: Are we really this ignorant of the Scriptures?" tweeted Republican Sen. Ben Sasse of the appearance. He cited John 18:36: "Jesus answered, 'My Kingdom is not of this world.'"

Sasse also retweeted a tweet from Michael Wear, who headed the faith outreach of President Barack Obama's 2012 campaign, which referred to the Hannity invite, "Politics as Religion, Religion as Politics."

"[T]ruly sad," Sasse added.

Jeffress hit back on social media. 

"Jesus also said His followers are to influence the world for good (Matt. 5:13-16)," the pastor wrote in a tweet directed at Sasse on Sunday afternoon following the service.

"Time for you & do-nothing Senate to pass HB outlawing abortion after 20 weeks instead of spending your time criticizing @POTUS. Pathetic!"
