A California megachurch pastor has reportedly encouraged his congregation to vote Governor Gavin Newsom out of office in the California recall election slated to take place next month.
During a sermon on August 1, Pastor Greg Fairrington, who leads Destiny Christian Church in Rocklin, told his congregation to vote “Yes” to removing Newsom from office in the upcoming recall election.
“You afraid of Gavin Newsom? My God, do your job as Christians on September 14, and vote ‘yes’ on recalling an immoral governor,” Fairrington is seen urging his congregants in a video of the sermon.
According to The Sacramento Bee, the pastor also stressed that Newsom’s “policies and politics have continually contradicted the Word of God and have been in opposition with the millions of Christians in California.”
