Freedom of the Pulpit Asserted

Monday, September 29, 2008

To the Editor of the SF Chronicle:

A few bold clergy are fighting against the government’s laws interfering with the practice of religion. (SF Chronicle 9/29/08) Pastors are supporting candidates for President of the United States from their pulpits. The IRS, an arm of the government, may cause churches to lose their tax-exempt status for involving itself in supporting candidates. That threat is the government interfering with the right of free speech for clergy. The clergy involved are very conservative and generally support the Republican candidate. While I totally disagree with their choice, I heartily support them in fighting for their right to freedom of speech from the pulpit. We liberal clergy can be thankful to these ministers who know something about the Bill of Rights.
