On his Ridenbaugh Press site, Randy Stapilus discusses Montana pastor Chuck Baldwin, an author, chaplain for the Oathkeepers group and a speaker at the recent survivalist confab at Farragut Park:
Baldwin’s speech, available on YouTube, exemplified some of this, but it also featured a challenge aimed more at other stripes of conservative than at liberals. “It’ll come as a shock to many of you,” he said, that “government is not God.” Lots and lots of people maintain that it is, he said. (Specifics, naturally, were lacking.) That point in place, he then took aim at fellow pastors, a whole lot of whom, he argued, may be well-meaning but tell their congregations that government should be strictly obeyed “no matter what.” (Again, no names were specified.) He told the audience they need to “find a patriot pastor who will tell you the truth.” He helpfully pointed to an online list. Complete post here.
Question: Should pastors of conservative churches in Kootenai County/North Idaho become politically involved?
