Subby, everything is OK as long as it's your side of the argument. That's how politics works.

There is a world of difference between a church having a position on a cultural issue that happens to be politically divisive and a church endorsing a specific candidate for office. There isn't much difference here from church's feeding hungry people or sending aid to other nations. Church and State work together.

Besides, I'm looking forward to hearing religious leaders support the NRA - because if there was one thing that Jesus was all about, it was arming yourself and being willing to harm your fellow man...

I didn't think political "issues" were off limits, I thought just supporting political candidates were.

I mean, being "Pro-Life" is certainly a "political issue" as well then, and certainly most churches speak out about that.
