Terry Heaton was a television news executive for The Christian Broadcasting Network during the 1980s where he worked primarily on "The 700 Club". Heaton also served as one of Pat Robertson's advisers during his 1988 presidential campaign. 

Terry Heaton is the author of several books including his most recent, "The Gospel of Self: How Jesus Joined the GOP".

Heaton explains how right-wing Christian Evangelicals have come to worship and love Donald Trump, a man who is an unapologetic sinner. Heaton also offers insights on how there is a direct connection between the Christian Broadcasting Network and Christian Nationalists such as Pat Robertson (who ran for president in 1988) and Fox News and Donald Trump’s rise to power and their taking over the Republican Party and its voters. Heaton also warns about the power and influence of Pat Robertson and his “shadow government” of right-wing Christian Evangelicals and their decades-long campaign to overthrow secular democracy in America.
