Religious Right activists are planning a big “America for Jesus” rally in Philadelphia this fall. The AFJ website said the Sept. 28-29 “solemn assembly” is intended “to summon together the whole body of Christ to pray for the church and our nation.”
But is this event really about prayer?
Up-and-coming Religious Right leader Lou Engle held a rally in Sacramento, Calif., over the weekend, an event a local newspaper referred to as “a religious revival meeting with a political bent.”
This weekend, Religious Right groups will kickoff election season by holding the first in a series of rallies, conferences and other events to stir up their base and turn out the vote in November.
