Sermons and politics

It is not proper for a preacher to explicitly say “Vote for X” in a sermon. That could lead to serious trouble with IRS. Our clergy at St. Mary’s are very careful about not crossing this line. However, after listening to Moses as Union Organizer (mp3 link) this morning I thought of my old math textbooks: Identifying X was “a trivial exercise for the reader” (listener). I am OK with this.
