Pastor Responds to Maher over Christian Persecution: Nazis Didn’t Burn the Jews Right Away

Last week Bill Maher went off on conservative cries of Christian persecution, demanding to know exactly where the persecution is coming from. Sean Hannity responded tonight by insisting that, yes, “Christians are often attacked” for their beliefs.

Pastor Robert Jeffress agreed and said, “It doesn’t rise to the level of having their head chopped off by ISIS in the Middle East, but it’s all the same attitude that allows for those attacks.”

And then Jeffress said this:

“I want to remind people that, you know, the Nazis weren’t able to take the Jews to the crematoriums immediately. The German people wouldn’t have allowed for it. Instead, the Nazis had to change public opinion. They marginalized the Jewish people, disparaged them, and make them objects of contempt.”

And when Hannity asked him if he really believes that, Jeffress said, “Absolutely, they are being marginalized right now, treated as objects of contempt by the media, and once that happens, then the taking away of further rights will be very easy.”
