Pastor Mac Hammond invited to join Bachmann’s campaign staff

Pastor Mac Hammond announced Sunday that he has been asked to join Michele Bachmann’s presidential campaign as the chairman of her national Faith and Family Council. Hammond made headlines after endorsing Bachmann’s congressional bid from the pulpit in 2006, spurring a complaint to the IRS.

“Michele Bachmann has considered me her pastor for a while,” Hammond said of Bachmann during his Sunday sermon. “Her concern has to do with what her political opposition might do with us as a ministry because the political opposition she faces is very poisonous, no doubt about it.”

Bachmann spoke at Hammond’s church in 2006, calling herself a “fool for Christ.”

“Everybody needs a pastor and she has asked me to be the chairman of her National Faith and Family Council…actually that’s not a settled fact yet because of the possible legal ramifications of my becoming a part of her political campaign staff,” he said. “But whatever the case may be, Lynne and I are going to travel with her to different states that she will be campaigning in.”

He said he traveled with Bachmann to Tennessee to introduce her at a campaign event.

“I got an opportunity to talk about the vital importance of the church rising up and taking this nation back,” he said. ”She is a sister in the Lord that is as committed to his word as any of you in here are.”

Hammond said he wouldn’t be using church resources or endorse her from the pulpit.

In 2006, the Minnesota Independent first reported about Hammond endorsing Bachmann from the pulpit. That reporting generated a complaint to the IRS and an informant inside the church sent MnIndy documents outlining potentially illegal financial arrangements.

The IRS investigated and Hammond’s Living Word Christian Center sued arguing that due to IRS restructuring, the agency could not appropriately investigate the church. A judge ruled in LWCC’s favor and the IRS began a process to restructure itself in order to comply with the law.

On Sunday, Hammond said that churches should be able to endorse candidates and praised efforts by conservative Christian groups to have rules barring politicking overturned.

“For centuries, politicking was done in the local church,” he said. “And pastors and ministers had the responsibility of illuminating which candidates were most closely aligned with God’s word.”
