The Virginia Governor’s race is shaping up to be a fierce battle between the incumbent Republican, Ed Gillespie and the Democratic challenger, Ralph Northam. In recent polls, both candidates are neck-in-neck for voters who have decided on their candidate. However, Democrats seem to have an edge in early voting numbers with twice as many people already casting ballots than at this time in 2013.
A stunning video has made its way to the Internet, showing a man who is supposedly a local Reverend threatening parishioners that if they don’t vote Democrat, then they are going to hell. As shown in the video below (which was obtained by Big League Politics), the Reverend talks about the right thing and how to avoid staying in hell (by voting Democrat).
The Main focal point of the video is the Reverend’s comments about how, If you vote Republican , you’re going to hell. It’s a sin and your eternity is at risk. This influence may sway some voters, but for voters that take into consideration moral characteristics in their choice for elected officials, this may not be much of an impact.
Some voters might wonder about the legitimacy of the video since it was released by Big League Politics. We at Gunaxin.com were able to confirm that the Reverend featured in the video is real through a Facebook page that belongs to him (which can be found here ).
It is not clear from the video when or where this footage was taken.
In the end, conservatives may have a tough fight on their hands to make sure they win in November, but one thing is for certain, if voters stay true to themselves and vote with their conscience, they will be headed in the right direction at least in the eyes of this local Reverend.

The video has made its rounds in conservative media with sites like: The Daily Wire, Washington Examiner and many more who have used this for their own purposes. However, what they failed to mention was that the video has claimed a life. The man featured in the video, Reverend William H. Lamar IV , the pastor of Metropolitan African Methodist Episcopal Church ( Washington DC ) died from cancer on October 18th, 2017.

Grieving over the death of a man who has just passed is never easy, but to disrespectfully use his name in order to create controversy is something that should not be tolerated. That being said, if it were not for this article on Big League Politics , we would have never known about this video and would have never known about the man who passed.
