The separation of church and state in America is an illusion. This country was built on religion, and whether you are religious or not, it will continue to subsist. “In God we trust” is on all our money, and in the Declaration of Independence it states, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” The greatest thing is the first amendment, which guarantees freedoms of religion, meaning you could believe in what you want or not believe in anything at all. 

What I am getting at is the law that churches can’t endorse candidates or speak on political issues is asinine. And when the law decides to stick their fingers in the churches everyday affairs, I think the church can speak out about it. The Houston mayor ordering every sermon to be reviewed, that is an overreaching of government. In Oregon, making it illegal for a private business owner to refuse a customers because of their religious belief. When the law doesn’t follow their side of the bargain in separation of church and state, then why should the church? 

In my opinion, if pastor’s want to speak on political issues, let them. If the parish doesn’t like it, they will quit coming and the church will die out; the people will move on to another church. There is no reason for the IRS or the state to get involved. 

Rogue pastors endorse candidates, but IRS looks away
