Eight GOP presidential hopefuls are scheduled to take part in this weekend's hate group-sponsored "Free to Believe Nationwide Broadcast," which promises to push for "religious liberty." The broadcast, which will go out to over 160 churches in 50 states, will air on Saturday, January 16.

The event is co-sponsored by the SPLC-designated anti-gay hate group Family Research Council and Vision America. On hand to speak will be Vision America's founder Pastor Rick Scarborough, who, has suggested filing a class action lawsuit against homosexuality.

Viewers who turn into the broadcast will see special messages from GOP nominees Donald Trump, Ben Carson, Carly Fiorina, Jeb Bush, Mike Huckabee, Rick Santorum, Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz. Each candidate will respond to the question: "What do you see as the greatest threat to religious freedom in America today and what will you do as president to protect our First Freedom?"

GOP nominees Chris Christie, Rand Paul and John Kasich are not scheduled to participate.
