Democrat Elizabeth Warren told a church in South Carolina that she’s running for president on orders from the Most High.
The god of Moloch told Pocahontas to run:

“Never in a million years did I think I’d end up running for office, first for United States senator from Massachusetts, and now for president of the United States,” Warren told a congregation in Columbia Sunday. “But the reason I did is I have been called to act.”
The comments are part of a concerted focus on religion in Warren’s 2020 campaign in recent days, including a stop in Georgia on Saturday to court Black millennial Christians at a forum led by the Black Church PAC, the Associated Press reports.
In Georgia, Warren referenced her faith as a United Methodist and former “fifth-grade Sunday School” teacher, and offered lessons from the Bible to justify her socialist policies.
Jesus called on his followers to help the downtrodden and weak, she said, and “that’s about two things.
“Every single one of us has the Lord within us,” Warren said, according to the AP. “Secondly, the Lord does not call on us to sit back. The Lord does not just call on us to have a good heart. The Lord calls on us to act.”
Warren claimed the 2020 presidential race “is a religious fight.”
CNN’s Leyla Santiago was at church when Warren and her husband met with congregants on Sunday.

“Church introduces @ewarren husband as Bruce Warren,” she tweeted with a video. “It’s Bruce Mann. He giggles.”
Mike McBride, a pastor and moderator of Georgia event, told the AP black voters will play a key role in the Democrat nominating process, and candidates will need to go beyond the stereotypical Sunday church service visits to make a real impact.
“We need candidates to show up on our turf, not always asking us to show up on their turf,” McBride said.
Some of Warren’s colleagues from the Bible Belt, meanwhile, think voters will see through the candidate’s religious rhetoric.

“Bless her heart,” Tennessee Sen. Marsha Blackburn tweeted, along with a video of her appearance on Fox News to discuss Warren’s recent focus on religion.
“I have to tell you, I think that there are many people who look at action, and look for those actions to match words. And I’m not so sure that she’s striking the right note there, but I’m not going to pass judgement,” Blackburn told the news channel.
“I think Elizabeth would be well served, not only Matthew 25, but looking at The Golden Rule, doing onto others as you would have them do onto you. Looking at the 10 Commandments and making certain that she is, as we all should …, living and observing those 10 Commandment,” she said.
“And also, we are to make certain we ‘render unto Caesar’ – abide by the rule of law, if you will from that passage – and we want to make certain that we do abide by the rule of law,” Blackburn continued.
“I think it’s consistency that voters want to see and want to hear,” she said. “I think one of the things that frustrates them, and I find this because faith is so important to me and my life, they want you to live out your faith, and to put it into action.”
