Evangelical voters attending services across thousands of churches this Sunday will view a video appeal from Republican vice presidential nominee Mike Pence.
Churches in some swing states, and some rust belt states as well, will air the nearly five-minute long video featuring the Indiana governor in a last-minute appeal to Christian voters, according to The Blaze.
“In these troubled times, I believe we stand at a turning point, when those who cherish faith, those who cherish freedom, those who cherish the sanctity of life and all the liberties enshrined in our Constitution should step forward and heed the call to action,” Pence said.
Calling himself a “fellow believer,” Pence described his decision to embrace a Christian life during his college years and added that his faith “has been tested, relied on, more times than I could possibly count.”
Pence delivered the “call to action” for Christians to vote for his running mate Donald Trump, promising to repeal the so-called Johnson Amendment which was passed by Congress in 1954. The legislation, introduced by then-Sen. Lyndon Johnson, bans churches and charities from engaging in political campaign activities, under threat of losing their tax-exempt status.
“Donald Trump and I are both committed to work with renewed Republican majorities in the House and the Senate to repeal the Johnson Amendment once and for all,” Pence said in the video. “The strength of our nation has come from our communities of faith.”
Churches that play the video appear should be safe from losing their tax-exempt status as long as they don’t directly endorse Pence or his comments.
Pence encouraged viewers to “bow the head and bend the knee” in the remaining days of the election campaign, calling on them to pray for the nation.
“I think it’s a time in the life of our nation when people who cherish life, when people who cherish our liberties, when people who cherish the great traditions that are enshrined in our Constitution should come together and support Donald Trump and our agenda to Make America Great Again,” he said.
