Who is your God?’ Trump, DeSantis, other GOP candidates battle it out on Christian Right conference stage

“Throughout the event at the Omni Shoreham hotel,” the Beast notes, “attendees worshiped God with song and prayer and heard speakers drive home the urgency to elect Biblically-minded candidates and protect children from ‘indoctrination’ in public schools. More than a few times evangelical activists warned of ‘Marxist,’ ‘radical left’ and ‘transgender’ ideologies.”

Ex-Vice President Mike Pence told the audience, “The facts speak for themselves. Today more young people are delaying having a family altogether. The share of never-married adults has tripled since 1980. People are getting married later, having children later in life; declining U.S. birth rates” — all the “hallmarks of decline.”

Also on Friday night, Florida Republicans agreed to nix the GOP loyalty pledge — which would have required the state party to back the 2024 GOP nominee no matter what — in an effort to collectively support Trump over the governor.

The Christian Post notes the governor “repeatedly discussed his record as Florida governor in his remarks and concluded his speech by describing his state as ‘the place where woke goes to die,'” emphasizing, “As president, we are going to leave the woke mind virus in the dustbin of history, where it belongs, once and for all.”
