Following the death of George Floyd by a police officer, America has been under frenzy with all the riots and political conflicts. Texas Lt Governor Dan Patrick spoke out amidst the turmoil, saying God can only heal the land.

In an interview with Fox News, Patrick affirmed to news anchor Shannon Bream that racism has been existing within the country up to present time. “But it’s really an issue of love,” he said. “It’s loving God. If you cannot love your fellow man, if you don’t love God. And we have a country where we’ve been working really hard, particularly on the left, to kick God out.”
Furthermore, he suggested culture change to address racism. “You cannot change the culture of a country until you change the character of mankind,” he stated. And the change of character and hearts can only come in turning to God through His Son Jesus Christ.
“You can’t change that unless you change the heart. And for billions of us on the planet, we believe you can’t do that unless you accept Jesus Christ or unless you accept God,” Patrick boldly declared.
With this, Bream couldn’t more agree. “The Bible tells us it’s not optional. Love your neighbor as yourself,” she said.
Patrick referred to the death of George Floyd as a “crime against all black America and against humanity and we’re coming together.” In addition, he said that America needs healing and turning to God is the solution.
“We cannot heal through commissions and blue-ribbon panels and more laws,” he said. “We’ve got a lot of healing to do and we can’t do it unless we turn to God. And we need to do that now more than ever.”
