This pass Sunday (Oct 2nd) was Pulpit Freedom Sunday which is a movement to restore free speech rights of pastors and to challenge the constitutionality of the _________ Amendment which was passed by Congress in 1954 as an amendment to section 501(c)(3) of the federal tax code.. Before this amendment was passed, peachers in this country would speak boldly about the great moral and social issues of the day and about the candidates positions on those issues. The Amendment was named after the Senator who offered the amendment and it stated that entities who are exempt from federal income tax cannot:

Participate in, or intervene in (including the publishing or distributing of statements), any political campaign on behalf of – or in opposition to – any candidate for public office.

Many believe it was just an effort by the senator to restrict the speech of two private foundations that supported his political opponent at the time. He would later become the President of the United States and give us the so called “Great Society” programs. Name this Amendment to the federal tax code.

He first read this book of Psalm’s, after which John Adams wrote in a letter to his wife: ” I never saw a greater effect upon an audience. It seemed as if Heaven had ordained that Psalm to be read on that morning.  After this, Mr Duche, unexpectedly to everybody, struck out into an extemporary prayer, which filled the bosom of every man present. I must confess, I never heard a better prayer, or one so well pronounced… with such fervor, such ardor, such earnestness and pathos, and in language so elegant and sublime… It has had an excellent effect upon everybody here. I must beg you to read that psalm.” Name this book of Psalm that Mr Duche read on that September morning.
