America’s newest church, The Patriot Church, is just like any other Christian sect; they believe in one true God and hope to put Christianity back at the heart of American life.
They also happen to worship Donald Trump, believing he is the rightful president and that the 2020 election was stolen. Yikes.
Pastor Ken Peters founded the church last September because, in his opinion, he saw the country moving away from its Christian origins.
Apparently, others shared his views. What started as one location in Knoxville, Tennessee, has now become four, with two more scheduled to open soon.
Peter’s love for God is only matched by his love for conspiracy theories. His sermons often include rants about the stolen election, vaccines, and the left wing media.
He believes that the church of Jesus Christ is the only chance to save America, and that violence may be the outcome.
Peters said in an interview, “I don’t want a civil war, but we’ve got to stand up for what we believe in.”
He sees the church as important as ever, believing it’s the last refuge for free speech against the mainstream left’s narrative.
Peters and his fellow pastors see it as their duty to preach against everything from gay marriage, abortion, transgender rights, and President Biden.
“Communism and socialism and transgenderism and homosexuality and abortion will not have their way in this land,” Peters said in an interview with The Washington Post.
Peters and his followers believe that President Trump exposed the culture war that is occurring in the US as well as what was “happening underneath” the presidency, whatever that means.
They also believe in the second coming of Christ, where goodwill finally triumphs over evil. Until then, they plan to keep expanding and spreading the word God, and trump too.
