16 - Should pastors speak out about politics?
Episode 16 (recorded 10 June 2021). Bishop Jack Lumanog discusses pastors speaking out about politics. Touched off by what was supposed to be a benign post on social media with a call to prayer for Myanmar and an observation that some Republicans are calling for a similar bloody military coup in America, Bishop Lumanog deals with some fallout about speaking out about politics.
Even with audio and video evidence of Michael Flynn, Sidney Powell and a growing chorus of Trump supporters and this sudden interest in Myanmar by Republicans who seem to be hoping for a similar military style coup to happen in America to restore former President Trump to office, Bishop Lumanog urges pastors to speak out against the false Gospel of QAnon that is permeating our churches and the evangelical movement at an alarming rate.
The Bishop also responds to some 1 star reviews to Pod Bless Us because he spoke out against Eric Metaxas in Episode 14 (recorded 11 December 2020 - "Eric Metaxas and committing his life to dying for President Trump").
And, some commentary on dealing with puritanical Anglican priests on Twitter. All in this one episode after a 5 month absence!
