Christian Pastor Pens Open Letter to Trump 'Surrogate' Sarah Huckabee Sanders About Her Lies

In an open letter to White House Press Secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, author and pastor, John Pavlovitz, vividly questioned Sanders relationship with Jesus Christ.

“What I mean is, how do you reconcile your supposed faith in Jesus of Nazareth, with your current position as a mouthpiece for this morally malignant President?” Pavlovitz said.

Pavlovitz platform is about saying the hard stuff. He wrote that Sanders public image and professed Christian faith has raised a few eyebrows.

“As a professed Christian, how do you make peace with the reality that you regularly mount the largest bully pulpit in the nation—and you lie for a living on behalf of a serial predator?” he said.

“How do you square your Christianity with the realization that you are the most visible and vocal surrogate for a man who is by nearly every measurement—fully devoid of Christlikeness?” he added.

He went on to say that she must be following a different Jesus. “Maybe your Jesus is good with deporting immigrants,” Pavlovitz wrote. “Maybe your Jesus celebrates the poor staying poor.”

He said Michelle Wolf let her off easy at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner.

“Given the countless hours you’ve spent lying to the world and claiming Jesus while you’ve done it—I think you got off easy,” he said.
