Robert Jeffress, pastor of the First Baptist megachurch in Dallas, Texas, said that he has never seen conservative Christians "as angry as they are right now over this debacle."

"Look, they realize now, conservative Christians, that the left is willing to do whatever it takes to cram their liberal agenda down the throats of Americans including destroying the foundation of our legal system, the presumption of innocence. And make no mistake about it, the reason the left hates Kavanaugh is not because of his judicial philosophy," Jeffress said in an appearance on Fox News on Sunday.

"It's not because of what he may or may not have done to Dr. Ford. The Democrats don't care one thing about Dr. Ford. They are afraid that if he is confirmed as a Supreme Court justice, he may chip away at Roe v. Wade and diminish the number of babies being murdered every year in the womb through abortion. Conservative Christians see this," the Texas preacher added.

"They know this is not a battle between Republicans and Democrats, it's a battle between good and evil, between the kingdom of light and the kingdom of darkness, and that's why they're going to turn out in the 2018 midterms."
