Minn. pastor endorses McCainA pastor in Warroad is testing the prohibition against preaching politics from the pulpit.
WARROAD, Minn. (AP) A pastor in Warroad is testing the prohibition against preaching politics from the pulpit.
The Rev. Gus Booth told the Warroad Community Church on Sunday that not only should they vote for Republican John McCain, they should also campaign for him.
Booth was participating in an event called “Pulpit Freedom Sunday” that was organized by the Alliance Defense Fund, a group of conservative legal advocates.
Booth says McCain’s positions line up more closely with Biblical teachings on homosexuality and abortion than do those of Democrat Barack Obama.
Americans United for Separation of Church and State has tried to stop Booth and the others from preaching politics, and have asked the IRS to yank his church’s tax exemption.
