Jason Rapert: Judge Wendell Griffen "not worthy of the title 'minister'"

Sen. Jason Rapert took to social media yesterday to attack Judge Wendell Griffen, an ordained Baptist Minister. 

Rapert, an enforcer of His own Christian doctrine which holds that agreement with Rapert Himself is necessary for someone to be a Christian, objected to Griffen's boycott of Gov. Asa Hutchinson's Restore Hope Summit.  

Griffen is skipping the summit because of disagreements with Hutchinson over criminal justice reform. 

Rapert says in his statement that Griffen "brings reproach not worthy of the title 'judge' and he is definitely not worthy of the title 'minister.'" Rapert adds that "as a minister he calls that which unholy 'holy'" — which I am guessing is a reference not to Griffen's criticism of mass incarceration but rather his willingness to perform same-sex marriages. Despite how hot and bothered Rapert is, he says that "the summit will be better that he is not there." He then suggests that people "[p]ray for the man to awaken from the fog that envelopes his mind." 

Dubiously, Rapert signed the letter, "Respectfully."
