A Republican lawmaker recently elected to the California state Senate sparked criticism this week for only appearing to invite Christians to a town hall, Action News Now reported Friday.

Brian Dahle, an assemblyman and farmer from Bieber, won a special election for a California Senate seat earlier this month and was sworn into office on Wednesday.

The article goes on to state the following:

He scheduled a “Faith and Values Town Hall” on Thursday, moderated by Mayor Julie Winter.

The Republican was criticized, however, for how the online invitation appeared to only invite “Christians from local churches.”

“There are particular values that those of the Christian faith care deeply about as they shape the society and culture of our cities, states, and nation,” the Facebook page for the event stated. “Because it can be difficult to know who our elected officials are, and what policies and legislation they are voting for on our behalf, many Christians have chosen to simply pray for the nation. Prayer is vital, but in addition to prayer, all citizens—including those of faith—are encouraged to be informed as they participate in the basics of their civic duties.”
