Politics in the pulpit

Posted By on Fri, May 9, 2008 at 9:37 AM

Wall Street Journal reports a movement by conservatives to have preachers take to the pulpit in the fall with overtly political messages. This would test the law that prevents institutions with tax-exempt status from engaging in partisan politics. (The article, as many do, makes it sound like the law bans political speech in churches. It does not. Churches are free to be as politically active as they choose if they do not claim tax exemptions.)
