Pastor Loses Supporters After Starring In Gun Control Doc
Rob Schenck is an evangelical who is pro-life and anti-gun.
Schenck says his base of supporters has gone down since he starred in the new documentary “Armor of Light” as coming out for gun control and against the NRA.
“I did have supporters who announced that because I had taken on this issue they won’t make any more contributions and they won’t stand with me,” said Schenck, who lives in Washington, DC, during a Q&A for the film at MoMA. “We registered about a 10 percent decline. We’ve had some surprising responses, some people who said ‘I’m with you.’ At this point, most are not willing to say that publicly.”
