Fox & Friends host suggests voting by prayer: ‘God will pick the right candidate’
Fox News host Ainsley Earhardt wondered this week if the best way to deal with the 2016 presidential race was to “pray about it and God will pick the right candidate.”
On Tuesday’s edition of Fox & Friends, host Steve Doocy asked The View host Candace Cameron Bure what it would take to unite Republicans behind one candidate.
“I don’t know what it’s going to take,” Bure admitted. “But I’m an American and I hold conservative values, and I think at the end of the day, I realize I put my faith in Jesus Christ, not in any one person.”
She added: “And whoever becomes our candidate, our nominee and eventually our president, I will pray for them and support that they make the best decisions for our country.”
Earhardt pressed Bure about the role of religion in selecting a candidate.
“I know your faith is important to you as it is to many of us,” Earhardt said. “Do you feel like in this election, we just pray about it and give it to God? And God’s going to pick the right candidate?”
Bure, however, recommended that Christians should vote.
“I don’t know who I’m going to vote for at this point,” she insisted. “But I will pray about the decision of who I’ll vote for.”
