Religious leaders urged Americans to peacefully accept the results of the 2020 presidential election as cities board up businesses, homes, and religious institutions in anticipation of violent riots.

Former Pro-Life Voices for Trump co-chair and Priests for Life national director Fr. Frank Pavone said that those on the left have attempted “a coup” over the last four years against President Trump and “incited distrust of the Electoral college itself and threatened various power grabs through such things as packing the Supreme Court.”

“This is the kind of thing that has to be addressed,” the Catholic priest told the DCNF. “The best way to avoid physical violence, which leaders on both sides of our political divide strongly oppose, is to avoid the non-physical violence embedded in the failure of the Left to accept the results of the 2016 elections.”

“The refusal to accept those results was also seen in the way the Left treated the nomination and confirmation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh. The process is capable of handling severe disagreements peacefully, but they did not respect the process,” he continued.
