Republican vice presidential nominee and Indiana Gov. Mike Pence is providing Christians with a number of reasons why they should vote for his running mate, Donald Trump.
Before American voters head to their polling precincts this Tuesday, a video showing Pence backing Trump will be aired in thousands of congregations across America. The video shows Pence encouraging Christians to "free up the voices of faith" by casting their votes for him and Trump.
"President Donald Trump will appoint justices to the Supreme Court who will uphold our Constitution and the rights of the unborn," said Pence. "Donald Trump will also, sign into law legislation that will free up the voices of faith all across this country by repealing what's come to be known as the Johnson Amendment."
Trump has promised to repeal the Johnson Amendment, which has been around since the 1950s. The said the law "essentially threatens tax exempt organizations and churches with losing their tax status if they speak out on important issues facing the nation."
Trump has made a commitment to work with Republicans in Congress regarding the Johnson Amendment, saying that the strength of America comes "from our communities of faith."
"It was the pulpits around the American founding that thundered against the tyranny of King George. It was the pulpits around America that spoke of the evils of slavery," he continued. "And it was voices of faith and communities of faith that transformed our nation through the civil rights movement in our own lifetime."
The source who shared the video said a large number of churches have agreed to air the video because they want to open congregants' eyes to what is really "happening at the grassroots."
