Thanks for another timely and important "A Public Witness". While it would be nice to have politicians with sufficient integrity to not debase places and times of worship with their political incantations, it would be even better for Pastors to "Just Say No" when asked if a politician can speak in a worship service. Pastors have no obligation to help a politician discrete worship to God, they do have an obligation to "render unto God" what rightfully belongs to Him and Him alone.

I think this is spot on, W.B. Politicians are going to be politicians, taking advantage of every opportunity available for advancing their self-interests. Both pastors AND lay leaders need to hold the theology and practice of worship in high enough esteem to not let it be profaned for partisan purposes. - Beau
