Press Poll: Pastors, Stay Out Of Politics

By an overwhelming margin, readers support a clear separation of church and state. Here's the response when they were asked “Should pastors mix religion and politics?”:

  • Yes, 365 votes (23 percent)
  •  No, 1,126 votes (73 percent)
  •  No opinion, 58 votes (4 percent)

DFO: The Press poll correspondents with a poll @HucksOnline May 23 in which 90% of the respondents said pastors should steer clear of politics. Only 8% said pastors should be involved in the political discussion.
