Thousands gathered on the lawn of South Carolina’s statehouse last Saturday for a rally for traditional values.


Those present at the rally supported defunding Planned Parenthood and repealing the the ruling that made same-sex marriage legal in all 50 states, according the The Blaze.


2016 presidential hopefuls, Senator Ted Cruz and former Texas Governor Rick Perry, as well as South Carolina Senator Tim Scott, were present and spoke at the rally.


“It’s a blessing that there are Christians in this America that are standing up for God,” one woman who attended the rally said.


Senator Ted Cruz said that America is in crisis, but there is a spirit of revival. Former Texas Governor Rick Perry said that he is angry over the state of the nation, Jesus is angry, and he hoped those in the crowd were angry too.


The theme of the rally focused on bringing about change, as David Gibbs of the National Center for Life and Liberty stated.


“They want their rights protected. They want their free speech and their freedom of religion to be honored in this state as it has been since the founding of our nation.”
