A Record-Setting 1,500 Pastors Deliberately Break Law, Yet Fail To Provoke IRS
Election-year Pulpit Freedom Sunday contrasts with view of most Protestant pastors, per LifeWay research.


http://blog.christianitytoday.com/ctliveblog/archives/2012/1...

More than 1,500 pastors explicitly broke the law last Sunday by endorsing political candidates from the pulpit. Amid a tense election year, their participation in the annual protest "could hold more sway than in previous years," CNN reports.

....

But the event could foster tension among the majority of Protestant pastors who believe pastors should not foray into political endorsements. New research from LifeWay indicates that "only 10 percent (of Protestant pastors) believe pastors should endorse candidates from the pulpit."
