Recently commuted political operative Roger Stone has two men to thank for his newfound freedom: President Donald Trump, and, more importantly, Jesus Christ.
Stone has been involved in political dirty tricks throughout his career and has never been a member of the Christian Right, to put it mildly, but his attempted railroading has caused him to become close to Jesus Christ and discover his faith.
He told CBN News about how he attended an outdoor church service in Florida held by Franklin Graham in January. This was during a low point of his life, and Stone finally summoned the courage to accept Christ as his savior.
“At that moment, I felt the calling,” Stone said. “I stood up with 500 other people. I wasn’t the slightest bit embarrassed. I confess that I was a sinner. I repeated a pledge that he recited, and it was as if a cement block was lifted off my chest. I can’t even explain it.”
“I was never scared. I was never worried. I was completely confident that the Lord would guide the president to do the right thing,” he added.
Although Stone admits to being part of some shady operations throughout his political career, he does not consider his involvement in Trump’s presidential victory in 2016 being among them. He maintains that he behaved with integrity and told the truth while helping push Trump to the White House.
“I don’t regret anything that I did in 2016 because I didn’t break the law,” Stone said to CBN News. “They wanted me to lie, to bear false witness against the president in return for some kind of leniency.”
Stone claims that his newfound faith has made him at peace with the situation, and he does not seek vengeance against the deep state, fake news, and Democrat Party hacks who tried to destroy his life.
“Here’s the big difference. In the old days, I would have wanted revenge. I would have wanted to take revenge against every one of them but now I’ve realized that vengeance is God’s, it’s not mine,” he said.
“I no longer am obsessed with the Sicilian concept of revenge, which generally speaking is a dish that tastes best when eaten cold,” Stone added.
However, Stone does believe that his struggle is one of good against evil. He believes that the forces out to destroy President Trump and the movement that put him into office are literally satanic.
“I really do believe that those who are trying to undo this president, those who are trying to destroy me, trying to destroy Michael Flynn, who’s a very good man and great American patriot war hero, I do believe they’re satanic,” he said.
“They cut corners and what’s outrageous is their arrogance, their moral superiority, when in fact, they have no morals at all,” Stone added. “I don’t believe that any of these people involved in my prosecution are really believers in God.”
Stone’s conversion shows again that the Lord works in mysterious ways. Stone’s trials may have been the best thing to happen to him, allowing him to discover his spirituality, and discovering Christ’s gift of grace and eternal life.
California’s Santa Clara County, Reportedly the Last Place in America to Prohibit Indoor Worship, Finally Lifts Ban Following Supreme Court Order
Santa Clara County is home to Silicon Valley.
The Supreme Court issued an order on Friday that required California’s Santa Clara County to lift its prohibition on indoor religious services.
Santa Clara County is home to Silicon Valley and the city of San Jose. It may have been the last place in the United States to maintain its indoor worship ban prior to the Supreme Court order, which came almost a full year after the in-earnest beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic in America.
Bishop Oscar Cantu of San Jose said in a Friday night statement that “I join all Catholics and people of faith in Santa Clara County in expressing our satisfaction in tonight’s U.S. Supreme Court decision rejecting Santa Clara County’s ban on indoor worship services. Santa Clara was the only county in the country to continue such a ban. Banning indoor worship and yet allowing people to gather at airports, personal services establishments, and retail shopping is unconstitutional—and the Supreme Court has said so several times.”
Religious services in Santa Clara County, however, cannot take place at more than 20 percent capacity and without strict mask, social distancing, and sanitization protocols.
After hearing the South Bay United Pentecostal Church v. Newsom case, SCOTUS ruled on February 5 in favor of the former and effectively mandated that the state of California lift its ban on indoor religious services. Santa Clara County tried to maintain that the ruling didn’t apply to them because their county directives did not specifically target religious worship, but the court is evidently not buying that explanation given Friday’s order.
The decision back in 2020 to deem religious services “non-essential” was disastrous and evil from the beginning. Glad the Supreme Court has been doing its part to rectify that injustice.
