Arsonist, Pardoned By Trump, Plans To Push Religion On Kids In Public Schools
Dwight Hammond Jr. and his son Steven Hammond, who were convicted of setting federal lands on fire, were recently pardoned by President Donald Trump.
Dwight told the The Oregonian that he plans to use his newfound freedom to lobby school boards about his belief that God belongs in public schools:
As I said for a long time, this is not about me. This is not about our industry. It’s about America and it’s about our youth.
We don’t stand a snowball’s chance on a slow roll through hell of getting out of this situation until we are willing to let God lead us.
The 76-year-old convicted felon also took a shot at the federal government which he referred to as the “feds”:
Friends and neighbors stepped forward and filled in the holes and were able to keep the ranch functioning even though the feds have managed to break both our legs in the process. We still have to crawl forward and are doing so today.
