Fox News host Ainsley Earhardt suggested on Monday that people killed at a church in Sutherland Springs, Texas had gone to the right place to be shot because she believes they were close to Jesus when they were killed.
“We’ve been reporting this shouldn’t happen in a church,” Earhardt said during an interview with Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R). “But I was downstairs talking with some people that work here that we all talk about our faith and we share the same beliefs. We were saying there’s no other place we would want to go other than church.”
According to Earhardt’s religious beliefs, at death, everyone goes to an eternity of no more suffering and sadness simply for going to a Christian church. She did not comment on whether she would follow what Jesus reportedly said in Matthew 19:21, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven.”
“Because I’m there asking for forgiveness,” she said. “I feel very close to Christ when I’m there. So, I’m trying to look at some positives here and know that those people are with the lord now and experiencing eternity and no more suffering, no more sadness anymore.”
Abbott agreed that there was a “necessity for us to come together under one God to purge evil and to rely upon the love that God provides.”
