The organization claims that the convocation was mandatory.Among the speakers at the convocation was Pastor Roy Maine, who also works as an electrician in the district. He had been invited to deliver the opening prayer, and included words of exhortation during his invocation.“This is the time to stand for God,” Maine told those gathered, according to video footage of the event. “We get run over and run over, and we get up …We’re gonna keep getting up for God, amen?” More
