The Georgia Christian Coalition

Serving Christ and The Citizens of Georgia

Our position on gambling:

Gambling has been demonstrated to be destructive to individual lives, families, businesses and society as a whole. Gambling preys upon our youth, the elderly, minorities and those with less education. Millions of Americans are problem or pathological gamblers, producing huge financial and social costs. Whether a lottery, video gambling or any other form of gambling, the Christian Coalition of Georgia is unwilling to risk the life of one individual or the destruction of one family.
