Evangelical Christian groups are spending millions to drive a socially conservative turnout for the 2018 midterms, but Pastor Doug Pagitt of Solomon’s Porch, a holistic missional Christian community in Minneapolis, MN says “Vote Common Good."
"I’m proud to be part of the resistance to the huge money effort to bully Christians into voting for Republicans.” ~ Doug Pagitt
Vote Common Good will be barnstorming the nation Oct. 2 – Nov. 6, 2018 on a a 31-city bus tour, inviting Christians to flip Congress by voting for the Common Good – calling people of faith and conscience to move from fear to faith in this November and against Republican members of Congress in 34 congressional districts nationwide. The group opposes Trump administration policies on immigration, refugees, health care, the 2017 tax overhaul, and poverty.
Pagitt maintains that Vote Common Good rallies will be more like “revivals” designed to encourage voters to oust politicians who don’t reflect the common good for all people.
The events will feature live music and speeches by a rotating cast of Christian leaders who are allies of the organization, including Rob Schenck, Brian McLaren, Shane Claiborne, and Frank Schaeffer.
“We are going into places where two years ago those places voted for a Republican, Many of the states we are in have a Senate race that is important as well (Missouri, Minnesota, Texas, Arizona.)” ~ Doug Pagitt
