Ron DeSantis, DeSantis tells Christian Group to 'Stand for What's Right, Put on the Full Armor of God'

Florida Gov. Rick DeSantis on Wednesday encouraged a group of Christian attorneys attending a conference to “stand firm for what’s right” and “put on the full armor of God” as they defend religious liberty.

DeSantis made the remarks in Florida at the Alliance Defending Freedom’s Summit on Religious Liberty as he recounted his own record of defending religious freedom and conservative values. ADF, founded by Christian leaders, is a legal organization that protects “religious freedom, free speech, marriage and family, parental rights, and the sanctity of life,” according to its website.

“I appreciate what you’re doing, because I know you face blowback. I know the media smears. I know that you take on cases that are not popular with certain segments of our elite institutions. God bless you for being willing to do it,” DeSantis, a Republican, said. “… I just would say whether you’re doing legal battles, whether you’re a judge, whether you’re an elected official – stand firm for what’s right, put on the full armor of God. Take a stand against the Left schemes. Take up the shield of faith. You’re gonna face flaming arrows – that’s guaranteed – but stand strong. Hold the line, and don’t ever, ever back down.”

DeSantis told the audience of his record of taking positions and signing laws typically opposed by progressives, including a new law prohibiting transgender girls (biological boys) from playing on girls’ teams.

“It’s discrimination against women athletes to force them to participate against male athletes,” DeSantis said.

Although corporations and the NCAA opposed the bill, DeSantis said, he still signed it.

“We had very little blowback at that point,” he said. “Of course, the Left and the media, they did their thing, but nobody listens to them anymore. So I don’t know why politicians listen to them.”

DeSantis also addressed the subject of churches being closed during the pandemic.

“You had places throughout this country where churches were closed, but strip clubs were open, or liquor stores were open – you tell me how that makes any sense whatsoever,” he said. “And so I think this idea of certain things being essential or not, honestly, is something that we’ve got to throw in the trash can.”

“Wokeness,” he said, dominates academia, media, corporate America and “big tech.” But it has very little support “outside of those aspects of our society,” he added.

“And so if you stand up for what’s right, they may want to chirp at you,” he said. “… But if you stand, you’re standing on behalf of a huge, huge silent majority of Americans who may not have access to those high commanding heights of some of our elite institutions, but who have strength in numbers and who understand common sense.”

  1. Reblogged this on Zero Lift-Off and commented:
    The following are my thoughts and words as well as action in my commitment to serve our Lord Jesus Christ which I wrote over the last dozen hours in articles pointing out similar or even the same exact matter as this one!

    This past week Biden who since last year could not speak without mumbling or losing his train of thought; but while he was at a press conference speaking fluidly with not one glitch I knew why, because I’m sure he is being spoken through, now that we are in End Time; by demonic forces! They absolutely do the work of Satan on earth and if anyone can’t see this then I feel sorry for you because you are either deluded, mentally incompetent or one of the cohort minions marching to hell with them! I say some very bold and honest to goodness from my heart things, not fearing anyone or any earthly consequences; because I know for a fact from my own life experience and certain events that were thrust upon me, that this is the Time to take a Stand if there ever was one!

    “By their fruits ye shall know them”

    Here in the US General Miley of the Joint Chiefs of Staff just referred to Trump as Hitler; and he is a leader of the military here; but a Woke one! In the greater sense he is not Woke but he is dead to the world, humanity and God!

    I only want to express what I truly know in my heart is crucial and most imperative now for anyone who cares and loves Jesus Christ; because that is who I do anything like this for; not myself or anyone’s approval other than God Almighty! Do what you will with me Lord; I’m in the ready to try my best for you, though I am a lowly sinner and fool; I’m only here because of you and for you! Amen.

    Edmund Burke “The only thing necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing,”

    “And so, the vast majority of evil done on Earth traces back to minds and wills that have been abandoned to fear and laid on the Altar of Obedience.” Hannah Arendt

    God bless you.

    Brother in Christ Jesus,
    Lawrence Morra III
