They play these little games. Churches produce voter guides that are supposedly balanced. They will list their values and compare the candidates to those listed values. But for some reason, it is always the Republicans who get all the check marks. But no, they do not endorse anyone directly, they just tell you which one is better for your faith. Besides, there are Protestant churches who regularly inform their flock that lib-er-als are their enemy. I never heard a preacher go on about conservatives, but some sure do love to hate liberals.
