What do you think of Phill Kline’s use of churches for political fundraising?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on September 14, 2006
“I’m a firm believer that there should be a separation between the church and politics, and I don’t think he’s been doing that.”
“I think if what he said at the churches came from the heart, then it’s OK. If not, which is probably the case, then that’s the wrong way to go about it.”
“It doesn’t seem right to me. That’s one of the reasons churches enjoy tax-exempt status. It seems like he’s crossing the line. Churches shouldn’t directly endorse a political candidate.”
“I’m not surprised. I think politicians will use any means possible to raise money, but money does not make them right.”
