Everything Is Going Down, But The Word Of God……It wasn’t a typical Sunday for members of the Antioch Road to Glory International Ministries in Charlotte. What happened to separation of Church and State? Will this church keep their nonprofit status?
The predominately African-American church held a “Day of Endorsement” for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.
Lafonda Jackson has attended the church for almost three decades and says most members support the effort.
“It’s not about upsetting anyone. It’s not about choosing sides. It’s about change. In the church right now, we have full support; no one has been asked to vote or swing one way or the other,” said Jackson. “It is completely up to every individual in here, and there’s some that don’t agree and some that do, but for the most part, yes we do support.”
The church’s founder says members he’s talked to want the change they say Trump can bring.
“America needs change and I think because he’s not right wing or not left wing, you’re not liberal, and he is a business minded person,” said Thomas Rodgers Sr. of Antioch Road to Glory International Ministries. “I think the Democratic Party would be a major disaster right now.”
On hand was Trump’s daughter-in-law, Lara Trump, who is a North Carolina native. She thanked the crowd and said, “The time is now….ladies and gentleman we are at a turning point in our country.”
Omarosa Manigault, a former contestant on “The Apprentice,” who is also the director of African-American Outreach for the Trump campaign, was in attendance.
