Former presidential candidate Mitt Romney decried the pastor that President Trump chose to pray at the historic ceremony for the opening of the USA embassy for Israel in Jerusalem.
President Donald Trump selected Southern Baptist Pastor Robert Jeffress to speak at the opening of the new US embassy for Israel in Jerusalem, apparently disregarding - or perhaps because of - his intensely bigoted beliefs about Mormons, Jews, Muslims, and the LGBTQ community.
Jeffress said the president "stands on the right side of you, God, when it comes to Israel". "The biblical gospel is good news for Jews, Mormons, atheists, Muslims, Hindus, agnostics, etc. - 'whosoever will may come, '" he said.
Jeffress responded in a tweet of his own by defending his view that 'salvation is through faith in Christ alone'.

But is that enough to defeat an all-time great team like Golden State? He also is playing over 20 minutes a game right now. It's finally here! The Western Conference Finals get underway this evening after almost a week since both teams played.
The other evangelical minister who gave the benediction at Monday's ceremony was John Hagee, also a Texas pastor and founder of Christians United for Israel.
"Jeffress said Mormonism has never been part of Christianity". Mass protests broke out along the border fence with Gaza in the hours before the embassy opening on Monday, and Israeli soldiers shot and killed more than 50 Palestinians, the Health Ministry reported.
In December, Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital, infuriating Palestinians who seek the Israeli-annexed eastern sector as a capital.
Smith then noted before cutting to a commercial break that Jeffress is a Fox News contributor.

The hate-filled pastor has also said the Catholic Church is following Satan's path and that Barack Obama was "paving the way" for the arrival of the antichrist. Hagee said the new embassy made a clear statement: "Let every Islamic terrorist hear this message: 'Israel lives'".
"You can't make the blessing on every 'kushi" you see - in America you see one every five minutes, so you make it only on a person with a white father and mother, ' he said, according to the Times of Israel.
Pastor Jeffress is a Southern Baptist, and the quotes attributed to him by Romney are accurate.
