Politics and the Pulpit: A Thorny Issue

There are two schools of thought on this subject, and they are directly at odds with one another. The first school of thought is that the pulpit should never be used to espouse politics. The alternative school of thought is that the pulpit is the very place for partisan politics. I believe there is a third way, an honorable way, a Christian way, for those who speak from the pulpit to lead and set the example. Do not be afraid to use the pulpit to address political issues, but do not be blind while doing so.

 

As a Christian, it is your obligation to use the pulpit in America to defend Constitutional and political values. America was founded on Judeo-Christian values, deferring to God for the rights bestowed upon us. Those who have access to the pulpit must lead by example. Do not be shy about addressing the Islamic threat, the Marxist threat, the funding of abortion with parishioner money, and any number of other issues that are wreaking havoc upon the lives of the folks who look to you for guidance. Your challenge, your obligation, as a Christian Leader, a Christian Warrior, is to empower and motivate those who look to you as a leader and to do so without the partisan fervor that so often accompanies political discussion. You have a responsibility to demonstrate that political debate can be done as a civil discussion and can be tied to the Bible and the word of our Lord and Savior. Do not be afraid to lead.

 

The American people, the well over 70% of our population who are Christian, are counting on you to lead them in this time of crisis. The secular progressives, the Godless few, are hoping you continue to remain silent. Silence is consent; it always has been and it always will be. Do not worry about losing people. You may lose a few. So what? Those souls were lost already. You will gain others as word spreads that there is a man or woman willing to address our nation’s problems as they relate to the Bible and Christianity. Either step up or step aside and allow someone else to use the pulpit for what it is intended to be used for, the defense and spread of Christianity.

 

As Christian Leaders, you have a moral and ethical obligation to lead those who attend your church. Failure to address the issues head on and instill a Christian obligation into those who look to you as an example, as a role model in these trying times, is the ultimate betrayal of our Lord and Savior. Being politically correct, walking the razor’s edge and not wanting to take on the issues of America from your pulpit, is part of what has gotten us where we are today. It is up to you to help get us out of this mess. If you did not come to the pulpit to help people and lead, then why did you do it? It is time for you to do some soul searching and hopefully find it within yourself to either lead us from this pit of fire or step aside so that others can.

 

This year, 2017, and beyond will either be the years of the Christian Warrior, or will be remembered as the years Christianity shied away from victory and let Godlessness reign supreme. I ask each of you reading this to give a copy of this to the person who has the pulpit at your church and ask that he or she exercise his or her responsibilities to you and the others who worship there. Thank you and God Bless.

I don't give a fuck about "schools of thought".
 
Separation of church and state. 
 
You want to talk politics from the pulpit pay taxes. Or shut up.

Mr. Gilbert, it is separation from church and state.  Read the Constitution, see the First Amendment.  You want to talk politics and religion, read the Constitution.  Why is reading so hard?  I could read the First Amendment to you, but I can't understand it for you.

"Separation of church and state" is a phrase used by Thomas Jefferson and others expressing an understanding of the intent and function of the Establishment Clause and Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States
 
Off you go now, mind the gap between train and platform. BUH-Bye.

Mr. Gilbert, if that is your real name, we both know you do not know what Jefferson the slave holder said.  Remember Tommy Boy said he despised slavery while keeping and humping slaves.  Soooooo there is that bit of hypocritical evidence.  Anyway, back to the matter at hand.....
 
The term is "separation from church and state" being as the founders abhorred state religion, something they left England over.  History, Mr. Gilbert, should not be forgot, like the Gun Powder Treason, often twisted by the racist and Mongolic lot.
 
Twisted history is all to blame for the niggardly and shameful amongst us today.  You are neither a cunning linguist or a master debater but yet you fancy yourself to be somewhat fanciful and free.  However, loathsome and reprehensible you are to me, bantering about misstated, misrepresented and wrongful half truths sitting in your late night Denny's booth. 
 
Returning you now to your herd of goth and bromance, hurry along Mr. Gilbert, go annoy someone anew, for it is not me with your withering silique for you do have funk and disdain eating into your brain, much like the worms, your dishonor, the worms, from behind the Wall, that mother did not dare keep away.

The phrase "separation of church and state" is generally traced to a January 1, 1802 letter by Thomas Jefferson, addressed to the Danbury Baptist Association in Connecticut, and published in a Massachusetts newspaper.
 
So we in fact do know what he said and wrote. Dolt. 
 
Late night Denny's? Is that supposed to be an insult of the unimaginative kind like "in your mother's basement, GUH!!" Hmm?
 
You sad deluded newbie I haven't lived in your pathetic warmongering terrorist cesspool for decades. 
 
You don't know me as your incorrect assumptions about me illustrate. So as I said before:
 
Off you go now, mind the gap between train and platform. BUH-Bye.

Mr. Gilbert, once again, we go back to what the Constitution says, in black and what.  It is the fact Jack.

re ""Separation of church and state" is a phrase used by Thomas Jefferson and others expressing an understanding of the intent and function of the Establishment Clause and Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States"
 
That referred to function, not ideology. The courts and the governments of Western Nations are formed around the core ideas of Christianity: The Trinity, Separation of Powers and not to Eat From The Tree Of Knowledge.
  I explain these concepts in my essay on here regarding why Christians are being persecuted.
