What can Alaska’s pastors legally say from the pulpit regarding political candidates or the constitutional convention ballot question? How far can clergy go in educating their congregation on key political and social issues? When do religious leaders cross the line and put their churches in jeopardy of losing tax exempt status?

The reality is that pastors and churches have far more freedom than many are led to believe. All these questions and more are answered by Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) in a detailed legal guide for pastors and churches. ADF is a national group of nearly 3,400 attorneys who partner with more than 1,000 organizations to defend religious liberty, freedom of speech, unborn life and marriage and family in the United States.

ADF’s legal guide, “Five Things to Know,” takes pastors through a simple step-by-step process regarding what they can and cannot do when it comes to local, state and national elections. Click here to download the free booklet.
