John W. Whitehead Speaks on Politics, Activism and the Rights of Churches to Foment Change, Speak Truth to Power

Constitutional attorney John W. Whitehead speaks on what it means for churches and other religious institutions to speak truth to power. Whitehead addresses the legal challenges facing pastors, churches and religious communities, especially in light of attempts by the government to dictate to churches and religious individuals about how, when and why they assemble; regulate how they minister to those in need in their communities; and threaten them with sanctions and heightened IRS scrutiny for urging congregants to put their faith into action through political and social activism.
