This Black NC Church Explains Why They’re NOT Supporting Hillary [VIDEO]

Written by Onan Coca

“Supporting Hillary is like being with an abusive ex, one that you already know left you broken and wounded. At this point, give the new guy a chance.” — Antioch Road to Glory International Ministries on Voting for Trump

A historically black church in Charlotte, North Carolina is making waves after hosting a town hall this past week wherein they decided that they could not support the Democrat candidate for President, Hillary Clinton.

Antioch Road to Glory International Ministries hosted a town hall this past Sunday that included Donald Trump’s daughter-in-law, Lara Trump, and former star of Trump’s NBC hit show “the Apprentice,” Omarosa.

The daughter of the church’s founder seemed to understand that this decision would likely pit their church against the majority of America’s black community, but it was a stand they felt they had to take. Katrina Rodgers argued that the philosophies and initiatives Hillary Clinton and the Democrat Party have endorsed and pushed for decades have actually dealt severe damage to Black America.

“It had a rippling effect,” Rodgers said. “Not only did the prison population increase but it brought about division in our homes.”

Supporting Trump will help working blacks, church members said.
“Providing jobs would automatically have a rippling effect on the economy which would have effects on crime rates which would have its effect on families,” Rodger said.
Rodgers said she knows the move isn’t popular and the church has already been ridiculed for its stance.
“This is what we feel in our hearts of hearts that is right for us to do so we’re moving forward on that,” Rodgers said.

Katrina and her father, Apostle Thomas Rodgers, also appeared on CNN to give further explanation to their decision and to defend their comments opposing Hillary Clinton.

This goes right along with a similar argument made by Charles Evers, the first black mayor in Mississippi and the brother of Civil Rights icon Medgar Evers. Mr. Evers chose to endorse Donald Trump back during the GOP primary.
