Is the Religious Right Dead?

Ad Feedback -- With the race for the White House in full swing, some are wondering if the religious right still wields any political power.

Tony Perkins president of the Family Research Council and several other Christian leaders say the voice of the values voter is not dead.

They also say evangelicals are not in the pocket of any one party rather Christians should rally around the bible as the final authority for shaping public policy.

"I've been reading these headlines that the religious right, their influence is waning," Perkins said. "I've heard that Evangelicals are cracking up, I've even heard the religious right is dead and I tell you what I feel amazingly well."

Bishop Harry Jackson, president of High Impact agreed saying "our movement is not dead, our movement is maturing."

Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, and Rev. Jim Wallis, president and executive director of Sojourners also attended the event and weighed in on the topics discussed.

The lively debate was co-moderated by CBN News Senior National Correspondent David Brody.
