On the heels of Republican Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal’s controversial veto of the Pastor Protection Act, legislation intended to protect the religious freedoms of clergy and religious entities, California megachurch Pastor David Jeremiah held a rally in Atlanta Thursday urging Christians to “stand up for your faith.”
While Jeremiah’s message centered on the resurrection story of Jesus Christ, the pastor also addressed the 2016 presidential election, issuing a wake-up call to those who say they’ve lost hope in America’s political process.
The Shadow Mountain Community Church pastor went a step further, urging rally attendees to be more than just spectators of the political process, but to get involved and educate themselves about the issues and to make their voices heard through their vote. “It’s important for you to vote and to be involved in the process,” Jeremiah said. “Don’t sit at home … make your decision and then go vote. If you don’t vote, don’t complain.”
