President of Honduras Wants His Cabinet to Show Same 'Values' and 'Spiritual Maturity' as Trump's

President of Honduras Wants His Cabinet to Show Same ‘Values’ and ‘Spiritual Maturity’ as Trump’s

Capitol Ministries’ Ralph Drollinger, who teaches several members of President Trump’s Cabinet that the Bible mandates conservative public policies, has been invited by right-wing Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernández to create a Bible study for his cabinet.

According to Drollinger, the request came after Hernández visited the White House and “was so impressed with the spiritual maturity of President Donald Trump’s Cabinet Members and how their biblical principles and values are strengthened and fortified through the Capitol Ministries’ Cabinet Bible study, that he asked to have an identical study for his cabinet.”

The New York Times has described Hernández as “a highly polarizing figure” who “amassed power over many of the country’s weak institutions during his first four-year term.” His brother was charged by U.S. prosecutors last year with conspiracy to smuggle cocaine into the U.S.The government’s arrest last month of a journalist who had written critically about Hernández and his family led the Committee to Protect Journalists to ask the government to suspend his sentence and “repeal laws that restrict press freedom.”

Hernandez’s government declared him the victor in his hotly contested 2017 re-election bid after the count was halted for a day and a half with his opponent leading. The announcement was followed by protests that were violently shut down by security forces. The Organization of American States said the result could not be trusted and called for a new election, but the Trump administration recognized Hernández’s victory. In a letter to Capitol Ministries supporters this week, Drollinger calls Hernandez “a believer” and said that “what is happening right now in the Central American nation of Honduras” is one of the “best examples” of the “incredible effect” that Capitol Ministries is having on world leaders.
