(ChurchLeaders) Many questions remain about the violence that occurred Wednesday in Washington, D.C., as crowds surged into the U.S. Capitol building: Who were the instigators? What happened with security? And what happens next, ahead of the Inauguration? As law enforcement works to identify participants in the D.C. protest rally-turned-riot, which led to five deaths, some Christians are speaking out about why they attended.
D.C. Protest: Who was there?
Ahead of Wednesday’s Congressional certification of the Electoral College votes, supporters of President Trump assembled outside the White House to hear him speak. Some were part of a days-long Jericho March gathering, while others attended a “Save America” rally. Crowd members held signs with messages such as “Stop the Steal” and “Jesus Saves.”
