Georgia Rep. Barry Loudermilk is generating a lot of buzz right now for comparing the impeachment process of President Donald Trump to the Trial of Jesus.

Loudermilk whose district covers a large part of Atlanta’s northern suburbs, spoke at Trump’s impeachment hearing and made these controversial remarks:

“When Jesus was falsely accused of Treason, Pontius Pilate gave Jesus the opportunity to face his accusers. During that sham trial, Pontius Pilate afforded more rights to Jesus, than Democrats have afforded this president in this process.”

On Wednesday, Trump became only the third president in United States history to be impeached after two votes in the House of Representatives.

Trump has responded to the announcement of his impeachment with a number of tweets, declaring that Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi “Will go down in history as worst Speaker.” .
