WASHINGTON, Sept. 9 /Christian Newswire/ -- In the 2000 and 2004 Presidential elections, key demographic groups were soccer and security moms. For 2008, that key demographic may be "Faith Moms."
These "Faith Moms" represent millions of women who attend weekly Bible studies; volunteer for and coordinate church activates and are the foundation of thousands of churches across America.
Governor Palin has energized these women like no other national candidate in history.
National Christian leader says these "Faith Moms" could very well hold the key to who will be the next President of the United States.
Rev. Patrick J. Mahoney, Director of the Christian Defense Coalition, states, "In 35 years of political work, I have never seen a candidate energize Christian women like Governor Sarah Palin. These 'Faith Moms' are the millions of women that attend weekly Bible study and discussion groups, coordinate church activities, drive their children to youth group and choir practice and are literally the lifeblood of thousands of churches across America. Both Catholic and Evangelical churches would have a hard time functioning without these dedicated 'Faith Moms.'
Through her compelling personal narrative as a wife, mother of five, mayor, governor and a 'Faith Mom' herself, Sarah Palin has electrified these women all across the country. I have seen it in my own wife of 35 years and in my three daughters all in their 20's.
Just as Senator Obama has struck a chord with and energized African-Americans throughout the nation, Governor Palin has motivated these 'Faith Moms' in a way that no politician has ever done before. In fact, many of the women that I have talked with over the past week have been disillusioned with the political process because they felt that their political leaders in Washington have been out of touch with their concerns and values. That has all changed now that 'one of them' has been nominated for Vice-President of the United States.
With all political commentators agreeing this Presidential election will be very close once again, I don't think it is an exaggeration to say these millions of 'Faith Moms' could make the difference in November. Their passion and energy, which has been ignored in past elections, will be front and center this November. To paraphrase an old expression, this year 'maybe the hands that rock the cradle' will help decide who rules this nation."
