Texas pastor Dr. Robert Jeffress chastised President Joe Biden over the weekend for advocating for the killing of unborn babies in abortions, calling his administration the most “ungodly” in American history.
During his Dec. 5 sermon, Jeffress, the senior pastor of First Baptist Church of Dallas, said Biden is chipping away at religious freedom and trying to stop Americans from protecting unborn babies from abortion, Baptist News Global reports.
“The Biden administration is ungodly! I don’t care how many rosary beads they rub, they’re ungodly,” Jeffress told his congregation. “This is the ungodliest presidential administration we’ve had in the history of our country.”
Though Biden professes to be a devout Catholic, he has the most radical pro-abortion agenda of any president in history. Among other things, Biden wants to get rid of the Hyde Amendment and force taxpayers to pay for elective abortions in the U.S. and overseas. He also supports legislation that would force states to legalize abortions for basically any reason up to birth even if Roe v. Wade is overturned.
Jeffress pointed out how Biden’s lawyers urged the U.S. Supreme Court last week to keep abortion on demand legal and strike down a Mississippi law that prohibits abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy.

“Here they are up there before the Supreme Court arguing why a woman ought to be able to kill her unborn child, murdering children,” the pastor continued, according to a video clip of his sermon posted on Twitter. Later, he added: “It’s sick, sick, absolutely sick and immoral!”
Jeffress said the Biden administration also is getting rid of measures that protect Americans’ right to practice their faith.
“They’re going after groups that preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and they’re trying to draw blood from those groups,” he said, warning Christians to prepare for persecution.
“We know if they ever succeed in taking the First Baptist Church of Dallas down, they’re going to go after every church everywhere that preaches the gospel,” Jeffress added. “We are not letting up, giving up, or backing up! We’re going to preach the gospel here no matter what it does. And if the Biden administration doesn’t like it, they can hang it on their beak.”
Recently, the Biden administration dropped a lawsuit defending a Vermont nurse who said she was tricked into helping abort an unborn baby in violation of federal law. Then, in November, an internal memo from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services revealed that the administration plans to limit the powers of a federal office tasked with enforcing religious freedom in other cases like the pro-life nurse’s.
Last week, Biden’s solicitor general urged the Supreme Court to reject a plea from Mississippi to overturn Roe v. Wade. The 1973 ruling forces states to legalize abortion without limits up to viability and makes the U.S. only one of seven countries in the world that allows elective abortions for basically any reason through all nine months of pregnancy.
As a result, about 63 million unborn babies have been killed in abortions in the past five decades. If the Biden administration’s plans succeed, millions more babies could be killed in abortions in the coming years.
