How would you respond?

I recently posted a story in which there appeared to be a few churches in the Black community that are telling their congregants not to vote due to Obama's gay marriage stance and Romney's Mormon faith.

I honestly can't think of one scenario in which my pastor would ever fix his mouth to tell his congregation not to vote. In order for him to do such a thing, it would first require a lot of arrogance on his part (in my opinion). It's arrogant for him to assume he has the authority to even tell me what to do with my vote.

Not even my mother can tell me how to vote, so what makes a pastor think he can tell me.

I guess I'm of the adage that if a church tries to control your vote then your at the wrong church.

What do you think?
