Local story about a pastor clearly endorsing McCain from the puplit.
My response on the newspaper's blog site:
This pastor crossed the fine line between speaking the truth of scripture and making a logical leap which was not his to make.
Clearly, abortion is against scripture. Voting for McCain or Obama is not clearly taught in scripture.
Endorsing specific candidates or even specific plans in the political realm is not the place of Christian pastors. Ours is to teach the principles of the Bible and let parishioners connect the dots themselves in the booth.
Unfortunately, too many pastors on both the right AND the left muddy the waters between these two areas of life.
He should go and learn what this means."Render unto Caesar what is Caesar's, and to God what is God's"
