Complaint filed with IRS after Tampa televangelist compares Romney to Satan
Sun-Sentinal ^ | 6/1/07 | Alan Cooperman

Posted on 06/02/2007 9:36:25 AM PDT by kiriath_jearim

Florida evangelist Bill Keller says he was making a spiritual -- not political -- statement when he warned the 2.4 million subscribers to his Internet prayer ministry that ``if you vote for Mitt Romney, you are voting for Satan!''

But the Washington-based advocacy group Americans United for Separation of Church and State says the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) should revoke the 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status of Bill Keller Ministries, nonetheless.

“Americans United for Separation of Church and State”

Another Left-wing Socialist group working to stop first amendment rights of those who oppose them.

Folks, I think it is getting to be a very frightening situation here in the home of the free.

If he thinks Romney is Satan, I wonder what his thoughts are on Hillary, Gore, or Obama?

I have a minister friend in Sweden. It is now against the law to speak out publicly against Homosexuality in Sweden.

Is the Bible censored in Sweden or it is still permissible to print such words provided they were written “a long time ago”?

Isn't it a wonderful thing?! In order for us to have one "right" guaranteed by the Constitution we must surrender another. For example. Liberals (Giuliani) seem to think that there is a clause in the Constitution that says there is a "seperation of church and state" which we all know does not exist that somehow trumps the Constitutionally protected "rights" of "freedom of religion" and "freedom of speech" which do exist.

What a topsy tervy world we live in eh?

Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! (Isaiah 5:20)
RINO's and Liberals are such whiner babies.

He seems on the other extreme of the political spectrum. Kind of a Michael Savage of the pulpit.. One of those who probably wouldn’t have voted for Jefferson because he was a unitarian.

I'll take that bet if Bill Keller is white. White radio or TV preacher cannot survive being a Democrat. Black preachers are another story. T.D. Jakes loves the Democrat Party and see nothing wrong with being a born-agin Christian and a Democrat..
Just goes to show ya how many religious/political whores there are in America who sell out for filthy lucre (entitlements).

Question: Is Americans United for Separation of Church and State a taxpaying organization?

Rant time...
This goes to something that has been bugging me for a while.. A lot of religious people are moving to the D side because they speak of helping the poor, etc... the problem is that the D's really don't do this as individuals, they simply demand someone else do it for them (government).. Yes, as Christians we are supposed to help the poor, etc, BUT, Jesus said WE were supposed to to this as individuals, not complain someone else isn't doing it and expecting the government to do it.. Christianity isn't about demanding the government take the responsibility from is.. it is about us as INDIVIDUALS following Christ.. This is the core foundation of Conservatism - individual responsibility.

It bugs me as more and more, I see Christians like Jakes say they support D's because D's support(sic) the poor, etc.. The D's don't support the poor, they simply belay your guilt of not helping them yourself as an individual..

::rant off::

I'd never vote for Romney because I just don't like the Mormon church.

Come and get me, IRS!

Oh. Wait.

They've already gotten me.

According to the left, it is a “violation of the separation of church and state” if a preacher says the wrong political thing, but it is not a violation for the government to censor the preacher.

Believe me, Voltaire would be “pulled” in America today. You can’t even say it on Free Republic!
