It’s an election year and talk of politics is everywhere.  It’s in the air, on the air and in church.  According to the Pew Research Center, almost two-thirds of Americans have heard their preacher talk about political issues and, even, candidates. When they do so, they walk a fine legal line, so what are the implications of politics in the pulpit? How has that conversation changed and what’s being said this election year?
