GWEN IFILL: Akin is counting on conservatives, homeschooling parents, and evangelicals to rally around his cause.

REV. STONEY SHAW: We don't tell you who to vote for, but I'm going to tell you how to vote.

GWEN IFILL: Reverend Stoney Shaw, pastor of FergusonFirstBaptistChurch, has known Akin for 25 years.

REV. STONEY SHAW, FergusonFirstBaptistChurch: Some of my family was -- my children: Dad, you're not going to support him, are you? Everybody is turning against him. I said, well, there was another guy that everybody turned against, Jesus Christ. But he prevailed.

And I believe Todd will prevail. I really do. He's a good man. Yes, did he misspeak on that issue? Yes. Yes, of course he did. But he asked for forgiveness.

I'm speechless.
