Why “Pulpit Freedom Sunday” Misses the Point

posted on October 4, 2012

For The Christian Century, Allan Bevere, a pastor, examines “Pulpit Freedom Sunday,” the movement on October 7 in which many pastors will endorse and oppose presidential candidates from their pulpits in violation of their tax exempt status. By bringing politics to the pulpit, Bevere argues that the protest movement “undermines and distorts the preaching of the gospel and the very character of the gospel itself.” Bevere concludes, “There are those who think candidates for political office are too important to ignore from the pulpit. I say they are not significant enough to mention.”
