  1. Congratulations to the leadership of these great conventions. I believe it is of utmost urgency that these fine men direct their energies for the next two months on two areas….salvation and the mid-term elections. The conventions did that prior to the 2008 presidential election and Barack Obama was elected.

  2. I am trying to remember the year in the 1990’s that Detroit hosted the PNBC
