Fox contributor Rev. Robert Jeffress on Monday likened the treatment of Christians to Jewish people who were “marginalized” and “disparaged” in Germany before the Holocaust.
Jeffress discussed his perceived persecution of Christians during an appearance on Fox News’ “Hannity.”
“This isn’t imaginary. It’s real. And sure, it doesn’t rise to the level of having your head chopped off by ISIS in the Middle East, but it’s all the same attitude that allows for those attacks,” Jeffress said.
“I want to remind people that, you know, the Nazis weren’t able to take the Jews to the crematoriums immediately,” Jeffress said. “The German people wouldn’t have allowed for it. Instead, the Nazis had to change public opinion. They marginalized the Jewish people, disparaged them, and make them objects of contempt.”
Host Sean Hannity asked Jeffress whether Christians “are being marginalized the way Jews in Germany were.”
“Absolutely,” Jeffress said. “They are being marginalized right now. Treated as objects of contempt by the media and once that happens then the taking away of further rights will be very easy.”
