Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson, a Republican, spoke Friday, Oct. 29, during a rally a “Stand Up for America” on Halifax Mall in downtown Raleigh.

The event, hosted by Return America, a group from Wallburg in Davidson County, was held as a way to speak out against people who support socialism, communism, are anti-God, anti-Christian, and anti-moral. It gave people a way to show their support for the American flag, the pro-life movement, the First and Second Amendments, and law enforcement.

Ron Baity, president of Return America and pastor of Berean Baptist Church in Winston-Salem, introduced Robinson.  “I noticed today there are some religious movements in the state who almost had a hysterical nervous breakdown when they heard he might run for governor,” said, Baity, who presented Robinson with Return America’s Patriot Award.

“We want to go on the record right now that there are multitudes of churches and pastors, several thousand represented today, and we go on record, (that) we welcome the possibility that he might be the next governor of the state of North Carolina,” Baity said.

Robinson said earlier this week he’s 95% sure he’ll run for governor, and some thought he might make that announcement at the rally. Robinson didn’t, though he started by thanking God.

“Let me say that again real loud for the naysayers. I am going to thank my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, for blessing this Christian nation.

“We give him thanks first and foremost. There are a lot of people out there who don’t like to hear that. I reiterate my statement from before. If you don’t like it, nobody is holding you here. You can leave God’s country, and we will not miss you,” he said.

Robinson called out some in the news media and government officials, namely Gov. Roy Cooper, Attorney General Josh Stein, and the N.C. Department of Public Instruction for twisting a message he gave in June during a speech at Asbury Baptist Church in Seagrove. During his speech, Robinson called sexual acts of homosexuals and transgender people “filth,” and he pointed to books depicting pornography that are available in some school libraries.

“When we delivered that message of faith and freedom in that small church, we had no idea that the news media would take 20 seconds of that speech and try to expose Mark Robinson as some type of homophobe or some type of bigot,” he said. “They asked me when you said filth, what did you mean? I told them exactly what I meant. I don’t understand why they don’t understand. How can you see pornography made available to children and not call it filthy? What is wrong with you WRAL? What is wrong with you, DPI?  What is wrong with you, Josh Stein? What is wrong with you, Governor Cooper? Where are your heads? You are trying to be stars in your political party, (but) you have forgotten your God-ordained mission to protect the people of this state, and that includes protecting our children from pornography.

“They want me to resign. I am going to resign myself to keep kicking them in the teeth, keep delivering the message of truth to the people of North Carolina, to continue to keep standing up for the constitutional rights of every citizen of this state, regardless of how they identify, and I am going to resign myself to continue to follow the wisdom and teaching of Jesus Christ and preach that message every time I get a chance,” he said.

Robinson said he is inspired by people of courage. He cited former President Trump.

“I stand for the American people because I love our flag, I love our nation, and I love our way of life. That is what inspires courage. What we currently see in this nation inspires fear and sadness,” he said.

“This is government of the people, by the people, for the people, not by the Bidens, for the Bidens, and for the Bidens.  It’s time for us to take it back. Stand with courage. Stand with conviction. Tell our enemies on the other side of the aisle that would drag this nation down into a socialist hellhole that you will only do it as you run past me, lying on the ground, choking on my blood. Because I will not give up this nation to you. It isn’t yours. You didn’t build it. You didn’t defend it, and you will not own it. We will, the Christian patriots of this nation. Stand strong, stand proud. Let’s save this state and nation. Let’s be the people to preserve freedom for the future.”


  1. So thankful that you are representing us Americans that still stand for God and freedom. I support you 100%.

  2. He will have my vote for Governor here in NC. To God be the glory, we need many more in high places to put God first.

  3. For one Jesus is not a Republican. This has been said before. But now since Mr. Robinson is trying to mix Christianity with politics, it must be said more loudly and more clearly than ever. There are good and godly men and women who vote Republican and serve in elected office as Republicans. But the association of the name of Christ with the Republican party of Trump has become a scourge of shame for the church. The time has come indeed, it is long overdue for the entire church to denounce this association in the strongest possible terms.

    • Jesus may not be a republican. He is Lord and Savior. But I can tell you right now, there’s no way he would ever vote Democrat. The party of slavery. The party of abortion. Jesus said let the little children come to me, yet the Democratic party promotes and promulgates modern day child sacrifice to Molech (the god of convenience). Democrats cant even get the Life part right of Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. That tells me that any conversation after that fact is moot. Until yall get that part right, no other conversation about freedoms and rights can be had. Because yalls interpretation of the constitution is already askew straight out the gate. End of story. Period. God Bless.

    • And its funny you say hes trying to mix Christianity with politics. Have you ever read Matthew Chapter 23. Jesus was clearly involved with Politics. He rubuked the hell out of the pharisees and the sadducees who were the religious and political leaders of that time. Called them bling guides, and a brood of vipers and that they ignored the weightier matters of the law. So tell me again why Christians shouldn’t be involved and have a say in such matters these days? And to take a stand for righteousness?? Yeah, that’s what I though. (Mic Dropped)

  4. To me, the Eight Beatitudes best represent the teachings of Jesus and are the foundation of Christianity.

    1. “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven.”

    2. “Blessed are they who mourn, for they shall be comforted.”

    3. “Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.”

    4. “Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled.”

    5. “Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy.”

    6. “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.”

    7. “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called children of God.”

    8. “Blessed are they that have been persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven.”

  5. So thankful for people like this who still stand up for America and Christian values and rebuke what “they” are trying to do to this country!

  6. Glad he was elected and support him completely. His opponents (Democrats) have lost their way. They shelter sinful actions instead of having compassion for the sinners and putting effort into educating them on their sinful ways. As long as the Democrat party overwhelming endorses Abortion (among other abominations) they will be the harbingers of America’s doom.

  7. Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson is a strong, outstanding and Godly leader in the state of NC. We are so proud that he stand up for our Constitutional rights. I hope he does run for Governor one day. We need a Godly man in office that we can trust to hold up the morel values that we believe in. God bless you Lt. Gov. Mark Roberson. We stand behind you all the way!
