Are Pastors Silenced from Politics?

Certainly no one would agree that a Pastor loses his rights to citizenship, his ability to vote, his political voice, or even a duty of civic action simply because of his profession.  Yet, certain religiously-hostile groups like the Americans United for Separation of Church and State are trying to silence all Pastors from taking part in the 2008 elections.  One particular Houston conflict is strikingly ironic—in a twist of fate, Free Market’s legal group turned the tables on anti-Christian hecklers, and filed an IRS complaint against the Americans United for Separation of Church and State for interfering in politics.  As opposed to pastors endorsing candidates and being involved in politics on a personal level—the non-profit activity actually is legitimately against the law.  No word from the IRS on either side…but you’ll see from the video clip it’s clear who won the PR war.
