Pastors may have been in the spotlight in recent months
regarding IRS regulations prohibiting them from endorsing political candidates
from the pulpit, but that hasn’t stopped them from doing so on their own time.
According to the same LifeWay study, more than half (53 percent) of Protestant
pastors say they've endorsed candidates for public office this year. Less than 3
percent have actually endorsed a candidate during a church service this year.
Additionally, an overwhelming 95 percent say their churches have not engaged in
any form of political endorsement. [Baptist Press, 10/30/08]
