Intercessors for America, the pro-Trump group that has been mobilizing its prayer warriors to help elect “godly” candidates in the 2018 midterms, has bumped up the frequency of its monthly prayer calls and will be holding them every week between now and the election. Rep. Jody Hice of Georgia was the featured guest on last Friday’s call.
IFA’s Dave Kubal described this year’s elections as the most important ever, and called Hice “one of my favorite Congressmen.”
Kubal also invited Hice to speak about a particular issue that is “on your heart”—the repeal of the Johnson Amendment, which prohibits direct electoral activity by churches and other tax-exempt charitable nonprofits. Religious Right leaders portray it as a dire threat to religious leaders’ ability to speak out on political issues, which is a ridiculous charge given the level of political engagement by religious conservatives on topics like abortion, LGBTQ equality, the courts, and politics generally.
