The Star Tribune carries the story today about Rev. Gus Booth of Warroad Community Church who is urging his flock not to support Barack Obama for president because of his position on abortion. Booth is a delegate to the RNC convention in St. Paul later this year.
It’s not a freedom of speech issue. It’s a tax issue. There’s nothing to prevent any church leader from speaking politics. You just can’t get into endorsing candidates from the pulpit while claiming non-profit status from the IRS.
I know what some of you are thinking? Isn’t that what Obama’s former pastor did? Why isn’t the IRS investigating that church. It is.
