A statement was issued by Dr. Jerry A. Johnson, President & CEO of NRB regarding the presidential election.
“The American people have spoken. On behalf of the membership of National Religious Broadcasters, I extend congratulations to President-Elect Donald J. Trump for his remarkable victory. It illustrates the vitality of the American political process. We also congratulate Vice President-Elect Mike Pence, who as a faithful member of Congress was the 2009 recipient of NRB’s prestigious Faith & Freedom Award. NRB looks forward to working with the new Trump-Pence Administration on matters of mutual interest and concern.
“NRB commends voters for repudiating the demands of the radical Left. Sadly, that agenda has been aggressively advanced by the Obama Administration. But Americans still value life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. It is now time to unite in common cause to advance these basic principles, principles that bond citizens across political and demographic lines. Debates over the future of the judicial branch and, indeed, even the fundamental constitutional separation of powers among all the branches, remain in view. And we must counter the onslaught of more and more unprovoked assaults on religious ministries that only seek to aid their communities.
