Remember the endorsement courtship and nasty split between pastors and politicians during the primaries? Now, the Religious Right’s Alliance Defense Fund is organizing more pastors to endorse more politicians from the pulpit this Sunday!
Interfaith Alliance’s new video – Pulpit Politics: The Race for Pastor-in-Chief – is a fresh reminder of what happened in the primaries, and previews what’s to come if clergy are further encouraged to compromise their integrity for partisan politics.
In fact, a story from today’s Los Angeles Times features our clergy pledge as the counterweight to Alliance Defense Fund’s effort towards “setting the stage for a collision of religion and politics.”
America’s pulpits are for prayer, not partisan politics. Let’s keep our pulpits free from the political machinery we’ve already seen devastate clergy and sidetrack the campaigns in this election.
After you see the new video, you can watch our video on the Top Ten Moments in the Race for Pastor-in-Chief for ten more reasons religion and partisan politics are better left kept a long-distance relationship.
