Don Lemon upset with Pastor who met Trump – was Pastor a prop for Trump? https://youtu.be/GEf51hJZRs4
On Thursday night, the pastor appeared on CNN with Don Lemon, who asked the pastor if he was “used as a prop.”
“Do you think this president is responsible for hate in the nation’s discourse now?” Lemon asked.
“I believe that our president has fostered a culture and climate that has allowed for what was there and has been there for years to bubble up,” he said. “It has empowered people in a horrific way. Absolutely. I don’t think there’s any question about it.”
Lemon brought up the subject of black Americans being introduced to Christianity during slavery.
Lemon got a little emotional as he questioned Gray.
“Look, I’m a person of faith,” Lemon said. “He said there is a reason that people would teach you about the Bible, would let you congregate on the plantation but would not allow you to read. Do you understand the meaning of that? …It means they believe that religion keeps people in chains and that fighting back and saying I’m not going to deal with this, turning the other cheek, because they don’t want you to leave the plantation.”
