Should pastors be allowed to make political endorsements from the pulpit?

The next time the collection plate is passed during morning worship, it might be used for political means. The President vows to “totally destroy” a law that prohibits churches from endorsing or opposing political candidates at the risk of losing their tax-exempt status. There are those in the conservative Christian community that feel that “Pastors should be held accountable to God alone for what they say behind the pulpit, not the I.R.S.,” while others think allowing churches the freedom to endorse or oppose a political candidate would divide the congregation.

What’s your take? Should pastors be allowed to make political endorsements from the pulpit?

Why not? Shouldn't they be afforded the same free speech rights as anyone else?

Isn't there enough corruption in the church already?Big time pastors will be bought and sold like slaves.

I understand that not only pastors,but any non profit organization would be able to advocate and promote politicians. This is a slippery slope.

The truth is that some of them are already doing it. The government seems to take a blind eye the the Johnson Amendment
