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.

I'm speechless.
