I would say open

support for Ron Paul would have been nice, or any other candidate that espouses the same qualities. Or how about open condemnation of the unjust wars we are currently engaged in and a call for the removal of the individuals responsible for them. I think any topic which involves unlawful authority or harm being inflicted to the "flock" or others should be fair game. Can you imagine how much further Ron Paul would have gotten if the churches had gotten behind him, the only true Christian running for office? The fact that they did not speaks volumes.

Also, I am certaintly not implying that these things should take preference over the weekly service and worship; however, they also should not be forbidden topics of discussion either that could take place after service or on a separate day all together.
