It is almost impossible to avoid the issue of politics completely. In fact I don't know anyone who has no opinions about politics and politicians. It is no easy task for a preacher to hide completely his political opinions. While I am disgusted with the use of the pulpit to advance any politician or political ideology it is unrealistic and unreasonable to expect a pastor to be completely silent about his thoughts on politics. After all, politicians and the things they do impact our lives and our culture in profound ways.
Sometimes I think I walk through the minefield wisely. There are times however when I step directly on a mine.
