Religious conservatives asked to back GOP plans

KSAL StaffJune 16, 2013

The Republican Party’s chairman is asking religious conservatives to support the GOP’s plans to expand.

Reince Priebus spoke on the final day of the annual Faith and Freedom Coalition gathering in Washington that brought Republicans leaders together with evangelical activists.

Priebus said he supports “changing minds, not changing values” after the GOP lost the presidential contest last year.

Religious conservatives have been skeptical of the RNC’s plan for growth. That plan calls for more tolerant attitudes on contentious social issues such as abortion and gay marriage.

Priebus didn’t mention those recommendations in his remarks. He did call for activists to smile and monitor their tone during political debates, and he asked religious activists to “come together” and pray for the country.
