(National Sentinel)Â Providence: The Christian-based Family Research Council is advising Americans to reflect on the country’s political and cultural divisions, as well as recent violence in Charlottesville, during a Day of Prayer to heal the nation.
As reported byÂ Breitbart News:
The president of the Family Research Council (FRC) is advising President Donald Trump to callÂ the nation to prayer and reconciliation in the wake of the deadly clash between white supremacists and radical leftist protesters in Charlottesville.
â€œWe are a divided nation that is in crisis,â€ said Tony Perkins in a statement. â€œWe are no longer talking to each other â€“ only screaming at one another. We are like a married couple in crisis.
â€œI know there are some who will squawk at the idea of a Day of Prayer and Reconciliation â€” let them instead have a Day of Silence,â€ he noted further. â€œNothing good can come from the current shouting match that the Left and Right is engaged in â€“ we are bitterly divided and the fissure is only getting deeper by the day.
â€œTearing down statues and inciting violence is not the way forward,â€ he added.
Perkins also noted that the disgustingly dishonest media was essentially stoking more violence and division.
â€œWhere are the mediaâ€™s calls to civility that they issued immediately after James Hodgkinson, a Bernie Sanders supporter and volunteer who came to Washington with a hit list and shot my friend Steve Scalise?â€ he said.
â€œI echo the mediaâ€™s message after Steve Scalise was shot: ratchet down the rhetoric,â€ Perkins concluded. â€œBut I add that we should go a step further this time and let us take a day to seek God and pray for him to bring healing to our nation.â€
