The Family Research Council is hosting iPledge Sunday: A Call to Faith, Family and Freedom on Sunday via a nationwide simulcast that will reach over 2,000 churches with the goal of encouraging and equipping Christians to make their voices heard on Election Day.
An all-star lineup of conservatives will address attendees at First Baptist Church in Charlotte, N.C., the same city where the Democratic National Convention was just held. Evangelical political figures, actors and pastors that will be speaking at the event include FRC’s Tony Perkins, former U.S. Senator and presidential candidate Rick Santorum, Actor Kirk Cameron, Bishop Harry Jackson, Jr., Franklin Graham, Shirley Dobson, Star Parker, New York City Councilman Fernando Cabrera and Dr. Mark Harris.

In a telephone interview on Thursday, Perkins said Christians are facing an election that could well impact the direction of America for decades, if not centuries to come. He also explained why Charlotte was chosen as the location to host the event.
“North Carolina is a swing state and the latest state to adopt a marriage amendment,” said Perkins. “There is a huge choice before us and our hope is to reach and mobilize fellow believers so they understand the importance of this election. This event could very well be the largest pre-election gathering of Christian voters this year.”
Christians may find good reason to rally after controversy surrounded the DNC last week after delegates approved the party’s platform on Tuesday that left notably absent any reference to God or Jerusalem as Israeli’s capital city. An amendment was offered the following day that added the words God and Jerusalem back into the platform, but the voice vote on video sounded as if there were more “nays” than “ayes” despite it passing.
Perkins said the DNC’s vote on God in its platform should cause Christians great concern.
