their political views. "There is really not a significant restriction on propositions and policy issues," said Dean Broyles, president of the Escondido based Western Center for Law and Policy. "There is currently, because Ralph Lauren T Shirts Ebay of the Johnson Amendment, a Congressional prohibition (in the tax code) on pastors and churches speaking on behalf of a candidate running for office." Congress in 1954 enacted the Johnson Amendment named after then Sen. Lyndon B. Johnson (D Texas) based on the perceived need to keep charities and churches from politics. Some say Johnson initiated the measure to shut up anti communists and conservative Christians who opposed his re election bid. Broyles, who has published a booklet titled "Pastors, Pulpits and Politics: The Case for Clear Biblical Moral Teaching," said he expected the amendment to be struck down one day. "I think the Johnson Amendment is unconstitutional," he said, adding that it is being challenged across the nation. Broyles pointed to the Alliance Defense Fund's "Pulpit Freedom Sunday," held this year on Sept. 26. Pastors around the country made a point on that day to preach about the moral qualifications of candidates seeking political office. The Scottsdale, Ariz. based network of nearly 1,800 attorneys across the country says the federal government can't censor a pastor from applying the Bible and his church's teachings to candidates and elections. The group also says the government cannot condition tax exempt status on what they deem the surrender of First Amendment rights. Still, some religious groups say they won't push specific candidates on their congregations. "Our approach in our diocese is, we don't typically get down to the detail of talking about political parties or candidates in our churches," said John H. Andrews, spokesman for the Diocese of San Bernardino. Andrews said the diocese tries to encourage worshippers to look at public policy through the lens of their Catholic faith, which can lead Ralph Lauren Dresses Sale

Research Center for the People and the Press finds that among religious groups, encountering political information at church is most common among black Protestants, with 36 percent of voters who regularly attend services saying information on political parties or candidates has been made available at their place of worship. That certainly holds true at Ephesians New Testament Church in Fontana. Rev. Emory James said his fellowship often holds forums where his flock can learn about various political issues. "These are the kinds of things that my church does, but we in no way attempt to influence someone's decisions on who to vote for," James said. His church is not the only local one to host forums. Mt. Zion Baptist Church in Ontario held a candidate forum last week, with invitations going out to candidates running in various races. Scott Folkens, the Republican candidate running against Democratic incumbent Joe Baca in the 43rd Congressional District on Nov. 2, said he attended the forum. "I applaud them, because not enough churches do that," Folkens said. Overall, among voters who attend church services at least once or twice a month, 15 percent say information on the political parties or candidates has been made available at their place of worship, according to Pew's research, which was conducted between Oct. 13 and Oct. 18. The findings are similar to the number of voters who, following the 2008 campaign, said that political information had been provided at their place of worship, but lower than the 27 percent who said this after the 2004 election, according to the center. Just 5 percent of regular church attendees said their clergy or other religious groups have urged them to vote in a particular way.

James said he presents to members of his church the Christian gospel as the foundation for making decisions on life and politics. "So they (can) judge their decisions based on the moral factors that's been taught to them, and they can (form) their own spiritual convictions," he said. Kurt Fredrickson, assistant professor of pastoral ministry at Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, said black Protestant churches have always had a high level of religiosity connected to the community's needs, which factors into political issues. "So it's not a new thought to them to be preaching the gospel and having literacy programs and homeless programs," he said.
