Man2In an exclusive interview with The Brody File in Austin, Texas Governor Greg Abbott says America will continue to deteriorate unless pastors get involved in the cultural issues of the day. “The people who attend these congregations or pastor these congregations do not turn out and vote and we are dealing with the consequences by the failure of Christians to go vote.”

Abbott spoke with The Brody File in Austin Monday afternoon after speaking to hundreds of pastors at the American Renewal Project event in Texas. Abbott has been very outspoken about his faith in the public square and made an impassioned plea for pastors to do the same.

ARP is holding these influential meetings in select cities around the country in an attempt to get pastors to reengage with the cultural issues of the day. The hope is that pastors will energize and encourage their flocks to actually vote their biblical values.
