Jeffress is more concerned with his theocratic agenda–an approach to American culture driven by fear, the raw pursuit of power, and a nostalgic longing for an age that is long gone or may never have existed in the first place–than he is the good of the nation. He is a cancer spreading over our democracy.
Why else would he describe the Kavanaugh nomination as an example of “good” triumphing over “evil?” In Jeffress’s world view, “evil” is the product of Satan and his minions. The Dallas pastor has no interest in finding common ground. He only wants to demonize his opponents and divide the country. This is what culture warriors do. They claim to be patriots, but they are not.
