Protesters With Opposite Views Find Common Ground

A faith-based protest got heated outside of the Charlotte Convention Center Wednesday morning, when a demonstrator accused America of moving away from God. "The Democratic National Convention has come to the conclusion that they don't need God anymore," said Reverand Flip Benham, bellowing into the megaphone at the Operation Save America demonstration. Other protesters holding signs that condemn abortion, homosexuality and other Biblical sins supported Benham, the director of Operation Save America.
