(NEW YORK POST) -- A Texas pastor speaking at the Democratic National Convention on Monday trashed Republican policies in America, including the southern border wall, and claimed Jesus would say that unless the country changes, “you may go to hell.”
The Rev. Freddie Haynes, speaking at a Black Caucus Faith Event at the DNC, encouraged Democrats with a “backbone” to recognize the teachings of Jesus Christ and warned that “a nation will be judged by how it treats the least” of its citizens.
“I was a stranger. And you had the nerve to build a wall, while at the same time you have in the harbor there in New York, the Statue of Liberty saying, ‘Give me your tired, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,'” said Haynes, the pastor of the Friendship-West Baptist Church in Dallas.
