Fearful or Fearless?

Planned Parenthood, the leftist, pro-murder organization founded by radical racist Margret Sanger, endorsed Hillary Clinton during the primary season–the first time they’ve ever done so during a primary election.

Now, they’ve announced that they plan to have voter registration drives at their abortion service locations.  It is NOT illegal to conduct such drives, provided they are done in a non-partisan manner. So, I have no problem with their decision to engage in the electoral process.

What IS troubling to me is the hesitation, or refusal, of pastors/churches to conduct non-partisan voter registration drives at their churches. Fear of violating the IRS “ban” on political activity, fear of negative congregational response, or fear of being labeled “political” will cause many pastors to stay on the sidelines during this most critical election cycle ever. 

May I humbly urge all Bible-believing pastors to “pitch” your fears, educate yourself on the legality, yea necessity, of voter registration drives, and encourage congregational participation in what I believe to be our civic and Biblical duty–voting.

As my dad used to say, “If you fail (or refuse) to engage in the process, you’ve forfeited your right to utter a single complaint, when you view with disdain the leftward trek of the nation.” With that, I couldn’t agree more!
