Author and Religion/Culture Expert Dr. Alex McFarland Says
‘Conviction-Shaming’ Pelosi and Other Democrats Will Be
Accountable for Their Leadership and Votes
CHARLOTTE, N.C.—House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi shocked many last night during an interview at the Democratic National Convention, when she said that Hillary Clinton struggles with getting white men to vote for her because of the “3 Gs”—Guns, Gays and God.

Dr. Alex McFarland (www.AlexMcFarland.com), a nationally known pastor, religion and culture expert, radio and television host, and author of the new book “Stand Strong America,” says Pelosi’s words are a stark reminder to every voter that our choices count not only at the polls, but for eternity.
“Our first President George Washington would likely convey to Nancy Pelosi and others in her party that to take on the distinguishing name of ‘patriot,’ we should also distinguish the even greater name of ‘Christian,’ McFarland said. “Democrats, with their socialistic and libertine views, would have deep problems with all of the founders of this nation, who were most certainly concerned with the ‘3 Gs.’”
Pelosi went on to say that the “God” factor for these male voters has to do with a woman’s “right to choose,” basically acknowledging that God is against taking innocent, unborn lives. And those who stand on biblical principles know that. Therefore, they will not vote for a leader who goes against the tenets of their own convictions and the teachings of the Bible—leaders such as Clinton, Pelosi, Obama and their ilk.
“Our society today is very concerned about body-shaming, when someone calls out another person for the way they look,” McFarland said. “So why is Nancy Pelosi ‘conviction-shaming,’ practically scolding millions of Americans for not being on board with Hillary Clinton because of their beliefs?
“The Democratic Party should forget about facing the Electoral College,” McFarland continued. “They should instead more be concerned with facing God. The Bible has a lot to say about rejecting well-known truths and being a righteous leader. We must remember that we will be held accountable with what we do with our vote in 2016. Our vote is a stewardship issue, and all of us, Democrat and Republican, will eventually be responsible if we are a poor steward of biblical truth here on Earth.”
McFarland recently released his latest book, “Stand Strong America.” Co-authored with evangelist and apologist Jason Jimenez—McFarland’s co-host of the “Viral Truth” television program, which airs on the National Religious Broadcasters network—“Stand Strong America” addresses the idea that Americans are weary of the poor character and decisions of their leaders, including laws that may not coincide with their faith. The book is available at AlexMcFarland.com, Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble or Christianbook.com.
He is also the author of “The God You Thought You Knew: Exposing the 10 Biggest Myths About Christianity,” in which he dispels the myths and untruths about Christianity and replaces that with the truth of who God really is, as well as “10 Questions Every Christian Must Answer,” “10 Issues that Divide Christians,” “10 Answers for Skeptics” and the “Stand” series of devotions for teens. McFarland is an expert in the field of apologetics—the practice of defending the Christian faith in a world where faith in Christ is plummeting at alarming rates.
McFarland has spent years working with young people and takes their questions to heart. He has preached in more than 1,300 churches and has been featured at conferences such as the Billy Graham School of Evangelism, Focus on the Family’s “Big Dig” and California’s “Spirit West Coast,” sharing the platform with Chuck Colson, Eric Metaxas, Josh McDowell and others. He also serves as Director for Christian Worldview and Apologetics at the Christian Worldview Center of North Greenville University (www.ngu.edu) in Greenville, S.C.
Part evangelist, part apologist, part educator and part broadcaster, McFarland focuses on communicating the message of salvation through the Lord Jesus Christ. He co-hosts the daily, live radio program “Exploring the Word” on American Family Radio’s Talk Network, heard on approximately 140 stations across the country, and the weekly television show “Viral Truth,” airing on the National Religious Broadcasters Network, which he co-hosts with Jason Jimenez.
