An Dominionist minister says church leaders who supported President Barack Obama in his last successful bid for the White House should resign.

Decrying the present-day “political monkey house,” Douglas Wilson, pastor of Christ Church in Moscow, Idaho, said any evangelical church officials who’d supported the pro-choice Obama exhibited “a fundamental condition of cluelessness.”

“Any evangelical leader — by which I mean someone like a minister or an elder — who voted for Obama the second time, is not qualified for the office he holds, and should resign that office,” Wilson wrote in an Oct. 14 blog post. “Unless and until he repents of how he is thinking about the challenges confronting our nation, he should not be entrusted with the care of souls.”

Wilson, who’s known for his books on Christian theology and his debates on religion with the late atheist Christopher Hitchens, suggested there may be other reasons why supporting Obama could disqualify church leaders, but he said he’d focused primarily on the president’s “radical pro-abort position.”

Drawing a link between Margaret Sanger, the Planned Parenthood founder, and the then-respectable eugenics movement she aligned herself with to promote contraception use in the early 20th Century, Wilson singled out black officials who supported Obama as particularly ill-suited to lead congregations.

“Not only must the dignity of human life be upheld by white and black Christian leaders alike, to the extent we may allow any differences, it should be to expect a greater vehemence in opposing abortion (in the person of its advocates and enablers) from black leaders,” Wilson wrote. “This is because it is their people who are being disproportionately targeted by the white Sangerites. And a black Christian leader who cannot identify a Sangerite is a rabbit leader who does not know what a hawk looks like.”
