But not televangelist Rick Joyner.
While on the show "Prophetic Perspective on Current Events" on MorningStar TV on Monday, the notoriously conservative pastor implored God to save America from being wiped out by the nefarious "forces" that are "at work right now to undermine and destroy the republic."
"Raise up those who will save us," Joyner said. "Because the system is so broken... I believe our only hope is military takeover. Martial law."
Joyner seems to genuinely believe the United States is on the brink of annihilation. Earlier in the segment, he warns that the country "may not last through [President Barack] Obama's second term."
Those familiar with Joyner, who is the executive director of MorningStar Ministries, may not be surprised by his remarks. The website for MorningStar Ministries is peppered with references to Armageddon, a topic Joyner frequently returns to in his sermons and during roundtable discussions.
In the past Joyner has broadcast some arguably controversial views. In 2011, for example, he promoted the idea that Hurricane Katrina (which killed almost 2,000 people) was divine retribution for the "sin" of homosexuality.
