My husband and I worked together in ministry for almost 15 years before he recently moved into a secular job. Our family has always been politically active, and my husband, as a minister, has always had political opinions. He's never shared those opinions from the pulpit, though, because there is a time and a place for sharing political opinions and that is NOT as part of the work of a church. A church, or temple, or chapel, or any house of worship should be just that - a house of worship, not of politics. That doesn't squelch a minister, pastor, priest, or rabbi's freedom of speech; it just separates their action of speaking their political beliefs from their role as spiritual leader of an organization. That separation, I think, is a good and healthy thing.
