What Took The IRS So Long?

No one tells lies as well as as an ecclesiastical liar. "I'm not going to tell you how to vote, I'm just going to occupy the pulpit for twenty minutes and kick the living shit out of Brash or Bush. Oh by the way, hallelujuah."
All Saints Senior Warden Robert Long said the reverend had not pushed voters toward Kerry.

"In fact at the outset he had said 'I'm not going to tell you who to vote for,"' Long said. "He spoke in terms of our values ... basically urged people to vote on issues such as war and poverty, to have those values in mind." ..........

.............Regas said Jesus would have blasted the "massive violence" of US actions in Iraq and cried "Oh, the cost of your war." Regas criticized Bush for his tax cuts and said the religious right had "drowned out everyone else and ... hijacked Jesus". He chastised the president for his stand on abortion.

Regas said during his sermon that Jesus would have scolded Bush for the dead and wounded soldiers in Iraq and would not have considered the September 11 attacks an adequate justification for "killing innocent people.".
Yes, that's how it's done. Did anyone see John Kerry preaching in a church on live TV during the campaign, with all them Big Mamas in the front row waving their 'vote for Kerry' banners? If I had the video clip, I'd send it along to the IRS as well. You see, in the US if a church is seen to be electioneering it loses it's charitable status and is liable to pay income tax on all the money you put in the plate on Sunday!!!

The irony is that many of the political activists within the churches want to tell us how to run the country yet it is painfully obvious they haven't a clue how to run their own churches. Oh well, I guess that's why they are socialists.

The quickest way to turn me off is for some guy to tell me what Jesus would have said.

The failure of that person to suffer a sudden attack of lightening bolt through through to forehead is proof of devine tolerance... or disinterest. One of the two.

I'm sure this church doesn't believe in a literal Bible. That implies Jesus could have said anything. Including "Vote Kerry".

No one can say what Jesus would do or say about anything, in my opinion.

It also rings false when Bush claims that he was most inspired by Jesus or whatever that B.S. was that he spouted in 2000. It was obvious that it was said to get votes from "Christians".

One of my biggest pet peeves regarding elections back home is how Democrats can get away with "electioneering" from the pulpits of Black churches, without getting bitch-slapped by the IRS or FEC. But let a Republican candidate try to so much as talk at a nominal, say, Baptist church, and the Democrats scream bloody murder about the power of the "religious right" to swing an election.

And no, I don't condone the practice from either side of the political aisle - which is why I believe that ANY church whose pastor is STUPID enough to allow political figures to speak from his pulpit during an election cycle should have their tax-exempt status revoked immediately.
