What do you think about church leaders running for public office?
Asked at Borders, 700 N.H. on February 5, 2007
“I believe strongly in the separation of church and state, but I also believe that every citizen has a right to participate.”
“I think personally that you should do one or the other. I think it’s OK for church leaders to have an opinion about political matters, but they should stay away from the power of public office.”
“I think it all depends on the person and what their opinions are. I wouldn’t necessarily be for or against voting for someone who is a church leader.”
“I think it’s a good idea. It’s a complicated issue, but I think it’s fine as long as they’re a good, open-minded leader who looks out for a broad range of people and their interests.”
