Tina Campbell, one half of contemporary gospel duo Mary Mary, is yet another black woman who has come out in support of President Dick L’Orange.

Campbell took to her Facebook page this week with an open letter, giving our new president both her forgiveness and support. Awwwwww. She lists her reasons as biblically based.


“I choose to stand with him, and pray for him; because, as a follower of Jesus Christ and a firm believer in the Holy Bible, according to 1 Timothy 2:1-3, I have been commanded to: ‘The first thing I want you to do is pray every way you know how... especially for rulers and their governments, to rule well. This is the way our Savior God wants us to live,’” she wrote.
