Robert Henderson is a pro-Trump conservative preacher from Texas.
He preaches at Waco’s Radiant Church. On Sunday he told his congregation that Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died because he prayed for it to happen.
Ginsburg, a feminist icon, passed away on Friday at the age of 87.
She had battled pancreatic cancer for several years. She was an outspoken and highly respected advocate for women’s rights including abortion.
Henderson claims that Ginsburg was a “lion spirit” within the justice system that God wanted removed.
Henderson says that he attended a meeting with evangelicals in Washington D.C. and that he told them that they “
‘Look, we need to go into the courts of Heaven right now while we’re on-site in D.C., and we need to shut the mouth of the lion, judicially. We need to ask for a judgment against the lion that has actually been devouring and intends to devour from the Supreme Court. We need to get a judgment against this lion that Paul said God shut the mouth of.’ So, I led us into that place. Well, guess what? Ruth Bader Ginsburg has passed away. President Trump will establish a new Supreme Court justice. That’s no accident.”
“You need to understand that if we don’t shut down this abortion issue, that blood altar will invite demonic powers into this nation,” Henderson exploded.
“It’s not just about the babies, it’s about a blood altar that is inviting demonic powers. We have to shut it down, and we need a judgment, a judgment, a judgment against the mouth of the lion.”
“Well, guess what?” Henderson added. “Ruth Bader Ginsburg has passed away. President Trump will establish a new Supreme Court justice. That’s no accident.”
Henderson then added that allowing abortion in the United States was allowing demons to make their presence known.

“It’s not just about the babies,” Henderson said, “it’s about a blood altar that is inviting demonic powers.”
This is hardly the first, and won’t be the last, time that a nutty pastor has stolen the news cycle with outlandish actions.
Pastor Paula White, President Donald Trump’s spiritual advisor, came under fire earlier this year for attempting to exploit a world wide pandemic.
During a live sermon streamed on Facebook White asked viewers for “seed” money while she led a prayer session on the coronavirus. White widely known as President Donald Trump’s “spiritual adviser” and head of the White House’s “Faith and Opportunity Initiative” program. She announced, “Churches do so much. Not just from a humanitarian standpoint, but the greatest thing we do is bring spiritual truths that transform. What we do as ministers of the gospel is so vitally important, because every single day, we are a hospital to the sick.”
Then clarified, “Not necessarily the physically sick, though we also help take care of that. Many churches have health centers, etc. But we are a hospital for those who are soul-sick, those who are spiritually sick, because we bring forth the word of God, and we bring for truth that gets deep down in your soul in the way you think and you feel about things.”
Plus expressed, “Maybe you’d like to sow a $91 seed,” she said. “Or maybe $9. Or whatever God tells you to do. If you want to be a blessing to Paula White Ministry or City of Destiny, you can go to the website at PaulaWhite.org.”
White left her Florida church in 2019 to serve in Trump’s administration as chair of the “Faith and Opportunity Initiative” program. She now runs “Paula White Ministry.” She previously stated that in 2006 Trump was taking steps to build a glass cathedral.
“He wanted to build a house of God,” White claimed. “He said, ‘Let’s do this, let’s build this before we’re too old.'”She declared, “He is a Christian. “He doesn’t know ‘Christian-ese,’” In addition, “most people don’t.” That reported late last year. As The Washington Examiner told:
White has been criticized in the past for her methods of soliciting money. Last year, she told her congregation that God would provide spiritual guidance to those who gave money to her ministry.
Clearly even a time of tragedy can be seen by some as an opportunity.
