This week’s news of the Republicans repealing the Affordable Care Act was all we could talk about. While President Donald Trump gloated in the Rose Garden of his “accomplishment,” some might think the bill is undoubtedly a very costly victory for him and the GOP. But is it racist? Or even anti-Christian?
Friday morning’s episode of NewsOne Now brought those questions to light and then some. Earlier in the show Pastor Jim Wallace, who is white, blasted other white evangelicals, saying they “don’t care about poor, elderly or disabled people.” He went on to suggest that Pastor and President of Liberty University Jerry Falwell Jr. was a racist (Falwell said last week that Trump was a “dream” President for evangelicals). “I want to call that out. Because racism is a gospel issue. And Jerry Falwell doesn’t seem to think it is.”
Bishop Harry Jackson of Maryland’s Hope Christian Church took issue with Wallace’s stance and the two pastors went head-to head in a fiery exchange. Watch below.
TELL US: Is the bill racist? Does it discriminate against the poor?
