Jon Voight Condemns Violence, Encourages Americans to Love: ‘[God’s] Plan is Far Greater’
By Movieguide® Staff
Conservative actor Jon Voight never shies away from politics. After the protests and riots at Capitol Hill, Voight encouraged Americans to love and to trust God’s will for America’s future.
“My fellow Americans, we shall not weep,” Voight said in a nearly minute-long video on Twitter. “But let us give thanks to President Trump for his four years of hard work and love for America.”
Voight continued: “Let us not put our heads down, let us rise and look to a better future. Let us praise God, let us understand His plan is far greater.”
Voight recognized people’s disappointment and frustration but called his fellow Americans to unite and press forward together.
“I know you are disappointed, but this violence is not who we are. We are love, respect, honor. The ones who destroyed will be accountable, but the ones who truly wanted to share love and respect will be heard,” Voight said.
Voight concluded: “Let us put aside our differences and let America grow. Let us stand together with pride. And we as a nation will hold on to the love that President Trump shared with us all. It’s not over. The truths of justice will prevail, for God’s glory shall as well. Love to you.”
As Big Tech’s crackdown on conservative voices continues to ramp up following Capitol Hill’s events, it is paramount that Christians unite around the Gospel of Christ and not a political opinion.
