This Sunday is the final Sunday of the year for national Christian voter registration.
National Christian Voter Registration Sundays is a project organized by Priests for Life and the Vote Pro-Life Coalition. In an interview Tuesday on American Family Radio's "Today's Issues," spokesman Frank Pavone explained how it works.
"The idea here is to show churches and other organizations that are tax-exempt groups what in fact they are able to do when elections draw near – and to do it in a way that is coordinated and that takes away the fear and the doubt that people often have about whether they're going to be crossing any legal lines," he stated.
Pavone says organizers even provide pastors with non-partisan guidelines on how to announce and conduct voter registration efforts that don't advocate any particular party or candidate.
"This is a pastoral issue; this is a gospel issue," he continued. "And the issue is simply: [Are] the people of God sitting there in the pews ... called to take the Word of God that they've just heard and to bring it out into society and make a difference – make a difference in their families, in their business lives, in their leisure time and in the voting booth?
"If [the pastors'] answer to that question is Yes, I want my people to be a vessel of the truth and the grace of Jesus Christ in the world, then I point out to them that having a voter registration simply means that you're enabling them to do that in this particular aspect of their life, which is their civic responsibility." Previous National Christian Voter Registration Sundays were held on June 29 and July 6. - See more at: http://www.onenewsnow.com/politics-govt/2014/09/03/to-make-a-difference-register-to-vote-at-church#.VBiR3st0yJB
