Virginia’s Dominionist Attorney general encourages pastors to get political without breaking the law
Get mad about those abortion clinics and Gays — here’s how you can skirt the constitution…
Cuccinelli also urged the racially mixed group of pastors to invite political candidates from all camps to their churches to answer questions and explain their positions.
And he encouraged the pastors to be active in social issues like gay marriage and abortion.
“Pull out a map of Virginia and look where the abortion clinics are,” Cuccinelli said, referring to number of African-American abortions. “That doesn’t make you mad?”
He told the appreciative audience of 250 that “you can speak to any issue in America from the pulpit, full-throated.”
He also said Christians shouldn’t just focus on gay marriage, but the state of heterosexual marriages as well.
“We have an out-of-wedlock problem,” Cuccinelli said. “I mean, real men actually get married.”
Cuccinelli said many modern Christian leaders shy away from politics. When you do that, he said, “you’ve left the field to the other side.”
Don Blake, head of the group that hosted Cuccinelli, said the Constitution has been misinterpreted to silence the voices of church leaders. Without the nation’s Christianity-based rudder, he said, the country has lost its way.
“This country is in trouble financially, morally, ethically,” Blake said. “We’re in trouble in every way.”
