Churches + Politics = Theocracy

Evangelical Churches across the nation are wading into politics with pastors endorsing candidates from the pulpit. While they risk losing their tax-exempt status, they are gambling on a McCain/Palin victory which would, they hope, repeal the prohibition against political speech by tax-exempt organizations.

The Alliance Defense Fund has been promoting this movement here.

While they do have an argument under “freedom of speech,” it loses force when they argue that not only are they free to endorse political candidates (as opposed to social issues) but they should also continue to be taxpayer subsidized through their special tax-exempt status. More and more, evangelical christians are acting like the radical mullahs they so passionately fear.

In the battle of “Who’s God is THE God,” we, the people, always lose.


Palin On Pakistan And Bailout – Be Very Afraid

Every time Sarah Palin opens her mouth, I’m finding it more and more, scary that John McCain picked her. With so many other women-who are more qualified-McCain wasn’t thinking about our best interest-only winning the election. Her absurd answers in the form of multiple talking points crammed together, tells us, she not only doesn’t understand the question, also, she will be of no help finding a solution.

Sarah Palin fielded a couple of questions in south Philadelphia last night. This is going to cause the McCain Campaign to have a Pakistan problem. All because a local student asked about foreign policy.

“How about the Pakistan situation?” asked Rovito, who said he was not a Palin supporter. “What’s your thoughts about that?”

“In Pakistan?” she asked, looking surprised. “What’s going on over there, like Waziristan?”

“It’s working with [Pakistani president] Zardari to make sure that we’re all working together to stop the guys from coming in over the border,” she told him. “And we’ll go from there.”

Rovito wasn’t finished. “Waziristan is blowing up!” he said. “Yeah it is,” Palin said, “and the economy there is blowing up too.”

“So we do cross border, like from Afghanistan to Pakistan you think?” Rovito asked.

“If that’s what we have to do stop the terrorists from coming any further in, absolutely, we should,” Palin responded, before moving on to greet other voters.

Alaskans For Truth rally for Colberg removal & recall Palin

It looks like there is civil unrest in Sarah Palin’s home state of Alaska. It seems that 1,000 protesters are gathered in downtown Anchorage park to protest the manner in which the Attorney General is dealing with “Troopergate”.

A protest slamming Gov. Sarah Palin’s handling of the state’s so-called Troopergate investigation — and calling for the attorney general to lose his job — drew more than 1,000 people to the Delaney Park Strip in Anchorage on Saturday.

Protesters chanted “recall Palin!” as organizers told the crowd to push state legislators to keep after their investigation into the governor’s firing of her top cop. An investigator hired by the lawmakers is scheduled to present his report on Oct. 10.

“This report needs to be released. Not just for us … it needs to be released for all those people in the Lower 48 who are going to make a decision on Nov. 4,” Democratic blogger Linda Kellen Biegel told hundreds of protesters gathered on the Park Strip grass.

As to be expected, the McCain Campaign is dismissing this protest as a political stunt by loyal Obama supporters. The protest was organized by Alaskans for Truth.
