Pastors Preaching Politics

It happens every fall - some religious leaders speak about politics in church.  On September 26, nearly 100 pastors spoke about politics as part of "Pulpit Freedom Sunday," sponsored by the Alliance Defense Fund.The report appears in Onenewsnow.com, a division of the Family News Network.  The article there describes the action as a challenge the IRS to take the churches to court. In other political action described in the online journal, Pastor Cary Gordon of Sioux City sent a letter to other pastors in Iowa urging them to help in the effort to encourage votes against renewing terms for three Supreme Court Justices who had ruled in favor of same-sex marriage. Americans United for Separation of Church and State has filed a complaint against Mr. Gordon.
