In front of hundreds of people in uptown Charlotte and thousands across the country, Christian leaders called on believers Sunday night to “pray, prepare and participate” in November’s presidential election.
“iPledge Sunday: A Call to Faith, Family and Freedom” asked voters to take a political stand and elect into office those who believe in the same Christian values.
“We live in such a day where the call for Christian citizens has never been needed more,” said Mark Harris, senior pastor of First Baptist Church, where the 7 p.m. event was held.
Organizers said the event, which included song, prayer and speeches in front of a floor-to-ceiling American flag, was nonpartisan, though former Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum was one of the night’s main speakers. Also on the program was a Democratic councilmember from New York City.
