Of course not, he's neither racist nor a crypto Nazi.

I bet this young pastor learned a few things. A conservative congregation doesn't want to read about how Trump has no Christian values and is a threat to democracy.

Of course, the pastor's views are entirely justified.

He sounds like a decent person who is trying to figure out how politics and religion fits together.

it's a law that a preacher can not support any political candidate from the pulpit. if a church is caught doing this habitually they can loose their tax free status/ not classified as a church in governmental records.

Your fuhrer signed an executive order curtailing it's enforcement.

...then lied and said he'd gotten rid of the law, ofc, all christ like and whatnot. Welcome back.

I forsake not, my country, my mission, my comrades, my sacred duty. I am relentless. I am always there, now and forever. I AM THE INFANTRY! FOLLOW ME!

FEC says churches can endorse candidates – but it's still risky

[Image: preacher_350x219.jpg]Less than seven weeks before the 2020 presidential elections, the head of the Federal Election Commission is reminding people that it's okay for churches and other religious organizations to endorse candidates.
On Saturday, FEC chair Trey Trainor appeared on a Church Militant podcast, reminding viewers that the "Johnson Amendment," which forbids religious organizations from engaging in political activity, was rescinded by President Donald Trump his first week in office.
"One of the first things he did when he came into office in 2017 was issue an executive order to the Department of the Treasury, telling them that they could no longer enforce that provision of the law and that religious organizations needed to be treated the same as every other organization," Trainor explained.
He continued: "So the test that the Department of the Treasury uses now is: If that same speech were to come from a non-religious organization, could it be prosecuted? And clearly it would be First Amendment activity for any other organization to engage in – and therefore, the church should be able to engage in it."
In other words, if the National Education Association, for example, can endorse a candidate, so can a church – from the pulpit.
A subsequent report on Thursday from Religion News Service, however, quotes one of the FEC commissioners who disputes Trainor's claim.
"My colleague is not correct," says FEC Commissioner Ellen Weintraub. "Though the president's executive order directs law enforcement authorities to not enforce the Johnson Amendment, that statute remains the law of the land and cannot be undone with an executive order. Anyone tempted to violate the statute should keep in mind that a future administration could well decide to enforce the law as Congress wrote it."
Trainor clarified his remarks in that RNS story, admitting that "clearly" the president's executive order did not get rid of the Johnson Amendment.
