African-American Christians have traditionally aligned themselves with the Democrat party.
But these days, a growing number of black ministers are calling on their church communities to take a closer look at the issues and support the candidates that best reflect their values.
Bishop E. W. Jackson, founder of the Chesapeake, Va.-based Exodus Faith Ministries is one of those pastors. Bishop Jackson is also the chairman of Ministers Taking a Stand.
He told CBN News' Lee Webb why he believes black Christians need to end what he calls "the slavish devotion to the Democrat Party."
