Evangelical voters are still the largest and most reliable voter bloc.

The church has the power to elect the nation's next president—and that's a fact. The more the faithful speak their minds at the polls, the better chance we have of seeing a values-driven leader at the helm of our country.

And the issues important to evangelical voters are certainly the hot-button issues for this election: religious liberties, life, marriage and foreign policy. No longer can the faithful remain silent when it comes to the leadership of our country.

The evidence of taking a back seat in politics is clear; no longer can we sit idly by as constitutional, foundational and biblical principles are swept under the rug.
