Majority of Pastors Uncomfortable With Endorsing Candidates

As hundreds of pastors across America prepare to defy the IRS on Sunday, October 7, by endorsing political candidates from their pulpits, a survey by LifeWay Research, a division of the Southern Baptist Convention, finds that nearly 90 percent of America's clergy think that they should not use their pulpits for such endorsements. The survey of 1,000 Protestant clergy revealed that only 10 percent believe that it is appropriate to influence their parishioners in the pulpit by favoring a particular candidate, while 87 percent said it is inappropriate.

What! 90% might have an idea about The Truth Behind The Church's Purpose

Apparently pastors who really aren't interested in the Word of God, and want to dabble in politics, How the Church Relates to the Kingdom because they have quickly ran out of things to preach about Christianity are fewer in number than I thought.
