Evangelical Group Pledges Record $62 Million to Support Trump’s Re-Election Campaign

Published on

After being raised in the mainline Protestant church, I watched for years how church and state were muddled together. Abortion and the Gospel were presented to me as almost synonymous at times. Even now, if I look up photos of my old church on the internet, I find pictures of current members attending Pride and pro-abortion events.

The Left does not care about the mixing of church and government, but rather the relationship between the church and its cause. You should not be concerned about this if the right churches are supporting the right causes. I don’t think the Left would be dismissive about Ralph Reed and Faith and Freedom.

Politico reports that the group budgeted $ 62 million to encourage evangelicals to vote in the 2024 elections. The group will use voter registration, text messages, phone calls, door knocking, and literature distribution at approximately 125,000 churches. Faith and Freedom will spend approximately $52 million in 2020. Mid-July is when the operation should reach full speed. Reed knows that this is the biggest such operation ever, with 10,000 staffers and volunteers hitting the streets. Or in the pews. Faith and Freedom, a 501(c), will be responsible for the majority of the work. Americans of Faith would handle the balance, as it operates under 501 (c) (3) status. Both types of groups can’t directly support a candidate but a group with 501(c) (4) status has fewer restrictions.

Democrats outspent Republicans in campaigns. Trump’s legal troubles could leave him short of funds. Reed, who is aware of this, told Politico: “In this industry, you are paid to worry. And we have certainly seen in recent campaigns — particularly in statewide elections and especially in Senate races — the spending gap has become overwhelming, severe and debilitating.”

The “God and Country”, a movie by Rob Reiner, warned of this nightmare scenario. The film’s box office performance was dismal at last check. Most Americans do not believe that Christians are planning to force toxic masculinity on women in their third trimester while keeping them in the kitchen staring at stew and wondering where they left their shoes. The film claims that there’s a well-funded, vast network that is lurking in the shadows and funneling money to activists to chain an unknowing nation to a crucifix. Faith and Freedom are the perfect chance for filmmakers and supporters to say “See? We told you!”

Reed’s campaign is aimed at evangelicals who may not have seen the film and have already made their decision. There are no surprises at the DNC Convention, so the only thing that remains is to see what happens during election night.

Faith and Freedom, on the other hand, may find it difficult to gain traction in some sectors. In its time, the Post Modern Movement in the Church made significant inroads. The younger generations of evangelicals are also susceptible to the left-wing views. They may even sympathize in some cases. Megan Basham pointed out that progressive groups had spent time and money to infiltrate churches.

In a similar vein, Merrick Garland was the star of the show at Tabernacle Baptist Church, Selma, Alabama on March 3 to commemorate Bloody Sunday. Garland spoke about the DOJ’s Election Threats Task Force. Garland’s entire speech can be read here.

Even if I agree with the political views in question, I don’t like to bring politics into the pulpit. If the Left wants it to stay that way, then fine. They can go ahead.
