Bishop Harry Jackson is participating in his third Pulpit Freedom Sunday, a protest against an IRS law that forbids religious leaders from endorsing political candidates, by declaring support for Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney. The movement began in 2008 and has grown to include 1400 American pastors. Opponents of the movement say these endorsements are divisive to the congregation.
