This past weekend, many churches took a stand on the fall
election process, encouraging parishioners to vote for
particular candidates. It seems that some churches are always
in the news for taking political stands, so why was this past

What do you think? Should churches keep politics out of
religion, or should they encourage their members to seek
religious inspiration for political decisions? And should the
IRS be involved? Weigh in by posting your comments at the
bottom of this week's lead article.

by Harry Cendrowski, James P. Martin, Louis W. Petro, Adam A. Wadecki
