This initiative, sponsored by the Alliance Defending Freedom, encourages pastors to apply Scripture and theological doctrine to the positions held by candidates running for office. ADF reminds us that is ”core religious expression from a spiritual leader to his congregants. That kind of expression is at the very center of the freedom of speech and religion protections in the First Amendment.” Read the Oct 8, 2012 TownHall article on the event here. Contact MFI if you are interested in having your church participate next year.
