Professor Steve Bainbridge is curious why Americans United for Church and State isn't concerned about Kerry's recent "preaching" tour.
Last year, during the California recall election, AU did stay consistent when Gray Davis did some similar preaching. Let's see if they can bring themselves to it now that the stakes are higher.
Just so it's clear that I am still being consistent: I have no problem with the churches in question allowing Kerry to campaign, er, preach. If they sincerely believe that this is an exercise of their faith, they should be allowed to practice freely. But if AU really believes that churches should be banned from politics, they need to apply this rule to left-wing churches too.
