Politics in the Pulpit May Contribute to Decline

Most mainline Protestant congregants want their pastor to steer clear of politics in the pulpit; however, half of their clergy say it is appropriate to preach a political position, according to a 2009 Cooperative Clergy Research Project study. Furthermore, just 32 percent  of clergy said they hold political views similar to the majority of their congregation, down 14 percentage points from 1989. Under certain circumstances, that divide may contribute to church decline, according to the article, "Politics and the Pulpit, on the Faith & Leadership website.
