Group of African Americans Forming “New Independent Christian Party”

A coalition of African American clergy announced that they cannot support either political parties so they have formed the New Independent Christian Party. According to their website they intend to “promote Christian values and address the issues and concerns in the forefront of American lives” and “advocate for the Christian agenda and rights.” In a press release they state:

There does not exist a reliable political party that purely represents the overall Christian agenda in America.
