State-Run Churches Caught Red Handed

• RepublicForArizona.Org
George Barna is the foremost researcher of modern Christianity in the country.He recently spoke about a two-year research project studying why modern-day pastors and churches are so silent regarding political issues. The result of his research only confirms what I have been trying to tell people for years. But there was one thing his research uncovered that did somewhat surprise me. covered the story:

"On Thursday, George Barna?research expert and founder of The Barna Group?shared with American Family Radio's 'Today's Issues' about new information he's compiling at American Culture and Faith Institute over the last two years, gauging where theologically conservative pastors are at politically.

"'What we're finding is that when we ask them about all the key issues of the day, [90 percent of them are] telling us, Yes, the Bible speaks to every one of these issues. Then we ask them: Well, are you teaching your people what the Bible says about those issues??and the numbers drop?to less than 10 percent of pastors who say they will speak to it.'

"When researchers ask those pastors what else they are willing to do to get their people active in the political process, Barna said 'it's almost nothing.'

"'So the thing that struck me has been that when we talk about the separation of church and state, it's that churches have separated themselves from the activities of the state?and that's to the detriment of the state and its people,' stated the researcher."
