Thousands Gather at South Carolina State House to ‘Stand with God’ Against Sin

By Heather Clark - Posted at Christian News Network:


COLUMBIA, S.C. — An estimated 10,000 people gathered at the South Carolina state house on Saturday for a faith-based rally that joined together Christians who seek to be on God’s side of history.

The “We Stand With God” rally featured speakers such presidential candidates Rick Perry and Ted Cruz, as well as U.S. Sen. Tim Scott and South Carolina Rep. Richie Yow. Area pastors also spoke to those gathered, and prayer and praise was a part of the gathering, as a choir of 600 Christians sang from the state house steps.

“The purpose of ‘We Stand With God’ is to encourage and empower God-fearing citizens to stand in this evil day. Timing is critical,” the event website reads. “The landscape of this great republic is eroding daily and the floods of change are seeking to assassinate the moral fiber of the land we love. Crime rates are rising, civil unrest is abounding and perversion is growing exponentially.”

It also specifically notes the recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling declaring that states must legalize same-sex “marriage.”
