With the primary election in Pennsylvania on the calendar for tomorrow, Pennsylvania Pastors Network is reminding pastors, churches and all voters of their role and responsibility in the political process, especially as several judges are on the ballot who could potentially impact religious liberty in Pennsylvania.
“Increasingly, we are seeing the impact judges are having on the legislative process throughout our state and nation, particularly when it comes to matters of religious freedom,” said PPN President Sam Rohrer, who is also president of the American Pastors Network (APN, www.AmericanPastorsNetwork.net). “As voters head to the ballot box tomorrow, it’s critical that we remember that we will be electing individuals who, more and more, have direct influence over our religious freedom, much more so than our founders ever intended. I urge all Pennsylvanians to consider carefully this fact and to vote for individuals who will uphold both constitutional and biblical principles.”
In addition to judgeships, other municipal and school board elections will also be held tomorrow, in advance of the General Election in November.
PPN is urging voters to take the time to evaluate each candidate individually, regardless of party, and examine position statements as well as past voting records, when available.
Rohrer added, “As citizens of this great state, we have the duty not simply to vote party lines or vote the way our friends and family vote, but to prayerfully consider those we are electing to public office, as we are entrusting to them the leadership of our state.”
