Apparently a pastor at a small Baptist church in East Waynesville, North Carolina, told his flock that if they didn’t support George W. Bush that they should leave his church forever. Many liberals are aghast, seeing this in a further religious war against them. While there is a strident Conservative Christian movement taking crazy actions against liberals every day I don’t know who widespread it is. I think most American Christians just want to go to work, raise their kids, and watch blockbusters at the movies, not turn the nation into a theocracy.
Anyhow, the folks over at Daily Kos (which I was recently disappointed to learn is pronounced “kose”, not “kahs”, like I’d previously thought) have come up with a number of action items to combat this church’s anti-liberalism. The first is to contact the IRS. Which is a good point, really. Churches are exempt from paying taxes, unless they also involve themselves in politics. This pastor’s fiery attack may end up crippling his church. Good work, guy.
