WASHINGTON, Nov.7 /Standard Newswire/-- Rev. Rob Schenck, president of the National Clergy Council, representing church leaders from all Christian traditions including Catholic, Evangelical, Orthodox and conservative Protestant, released this statement today as polls opened across the country:
"This is a critically important day for Christians in
"Jesus said Christians are salt and light, preserving against moral and spiritual decay and lighting the way for our civilization in the way of the One True God. But it comes down to whether we vote or not today. If we do vote, God will use us to benefit this country's culture and future. If we don't vote, we deserve what we get, and our children, grand children and great grandchildren will sadly pay the price.
"I am praying God's people will respond and do their duty to God, to their families and to our country. God help us."
