Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), an NRB member, is organizing the seventh annual Pulpit Freedom Sunday on October 5. ADF reports that nearly 1,500 pastors plan to preach sermons analyzing the positions of political candidates, in light of the Bible, this weekend in a stand against the idea of government censorship. “Pastors should decide what they preach from the pulpit, not the IRS,” said ADF Senior Legal Counsel Erik Stanley. “The IRS should not be the one making the decision by threatening to revoke a church’s tax-exempt status. There’s a growing chorus of pastors’ voices calling for a solution to this very real constitutional violation.” More information about this effort is here.
