Pastor Gary Click has been getting tremendous fallout, both positive and negative, for his spirited invocation at President Donald Trump’s rally in Lewis Center on Saturday in which the Fremont pastor asked God to protect the president from “jungle journalism.”
“The immediate response was incredible,” Click said in an interview Thursday at his church, Fremont Temple Baptist Temple. “People loved the prayer.”
Click, who is a member of the Ohio Republican Party’s Central Committee, also compared Trump to David in his fight against Goliath in the Bible.
In his prayer, the pastor asked God to “protect our President and his family with a shield of faith, Lord, that shield of faith against the fiery darts of the wicked one, Lord, against that jungle journalism (that) extorts the truth and distorts honesty and integrity every single day, gets in his face with lies and mistruths and innuendos.”
