According to the Tax Code, a church such as Temple of Gaia or the Universal Episcopal Church is supposed to stay out of partisan politics in order to be tax-exempt. That means that I can’t get into a pulpit and preach for or against a candidate. But the nature of ministry being “Comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable” means that I am supposed to face issues head-on. And if a candidate creates or becomes an issue, I need to face the issue.
With some of the stuff going on as the presidential election approaches, we are not lacking for issues, including issues of basic civil rights that most people take for granted. And, precedent gives cause for concern.
We need to look and see what we might need to be ready for, and keep our eyes open!
