Christians Denied Chance to Welcome DNC Delegates

Ad Feedback

The Democratic Nation Convention denied a Charlotte-based Christian group the chance to welcome delegates to the Queen City.

Churches partnering with Charlotte 714 in a prayer effort also wanted to send welcome baskets with basic information about their churches and the city.

Democrats denied the evangelical group permission because of its pro-life stance.

"The mayor's office texted me and said, 'We regret to inform but we ask that you not send those letters, and not engage in 'Adopt a Delegation,' because your views on women are contrary to the convention,'" David Benham, Charlotte 714, said.

One delegate told CBN News he thinks the DNC was wrong because it sanctioned an Islamic event just last week.

"If you do something for one religious group you need to allow it for another religious group," DNC Delegate Fernando Cabrera said. "If you open the door for one group, you have to open it up for others, otherwise you're playing favorites."
