As President Donald Trump prepares to deliver his weekly address from the White House, a major church radio station in Georgia is planning to broadcast a controversial Christian radio broadcast that the president is defending against accusations of anti-Semitism.
The Gospel Coalition of Georgia (GCCG), a non-profit church radio network that broadcasts from Atlanta, Georgia, announced Thursday that it would air the broadcast.
The network has long defended its right to broadcast what it considers pro-Christian programs, including radio hosts that it calls “charismatic” and “Christian.”
In 2016, it ran a radio show called “The Jesus Rodeo” that the network said had been canceled due to the threats it faced after airing the program.
The station in Atlanta is one of several in Georgia that are defending the right to do so, arguing that there is no evidence that the Christian programs promoted anti-Semitic or anti-Muslim sentiment.
The Christian program that the Gospel Coalition plans to air is called “Radio Show,” which is a radio broadcast in which a Christian speaker discusses topics such as family values, the Constitution, and the Supreme Court.
The show airs from 6 p.m. to 8 p.ms. on Sunday, when Trump is expected to deliver the weekly address, according to the Gospel Network’s website.
The president has repeatedly claimed that Christians have a special role to play in the fight against anti-Christian bigotry.
Trump, who has been criticized for his comments on Islam, has repeatedly denied that he is anti-Jewish.
He has said he would like to see more Jews on the Supreme Courts.
In January, a group of Christians held a protest outside the White Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C. after the hotel was scheduled to host a Muslim delegation that had planned to speak on the Muslim issue.
The group chanted, “White supremacy, hate, racism, fascism.”
