Yesterday Donald Trump assembled a group of black preachers. Initially the preachers were there to endorse the candidate, but a number of them said they came for a conversation not a coronation. The real question is if all 100 had endorsed him would it matter? How many people are checking for their pastor when they make a political decision. Isn’t the preacher’s job to give the congregation spiritual advice? I took a poll earlier today and asked this question “would you vote for a presidential candidate because your pastor endorsed him/her?” The majority said no. So maybe the candidates would do better speaking to the members of the congregation versus simply romancing the shepherd.
Do the political opinions of preachers really matter?
