Several Republican presidential candidates attended the Road to Majority conference being sponsored by the conservative Faith & Freedom Coalition and the Concerned Women for American in Washington D.C. this week.
The Faith & Freedom Coalition described the conference as, “an important training and equipping weekend to fight the radical Obama agenda, advance conservative legislation at the state and federal level, and prepare for the 2016 elections.”
All of the Republican candidates spoke about the topics most dear to the conference attendees – outlawing abortions and the stopping the spread of gay rights.
On Wednesday night a young white man named Dylann Roof shot nine black people to death during a Bible study session at the historical Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina. When he was captured by police he said he did it to try and start a race war.
On Thursday Pope Francis issued a papal encyclical letter wherein he declared global warming to be a manmade problem that the world’s politicians have a moral responsibility to help solve immediately.
Racial violence in America and the injustices caused by climate change weren’t addressed at the Road to Majority conference.
