The government has a right to tell you what you can say in the pulpit, right?
If this is about using Church for political purposes, they better get ready to go after every Black Baptist church in the entire state, starting now.

(obozo could bring back literal slavery with chains and still he will get 97+% of the black vote)
I remember handing out literature outside a church years ago for a pro-life repub running for office here in NJ; we made sure we stayed on the public sidewalk as Masses let out.
Was a little surprised by the venom of some “Catholics” (I was much younger then).

As a private citizen, the Bishop can and should do whatever he wants!

Bishop Joseph Tyson is conforming with the state law and with the state constitution.
If the rigid liberal ideologues in the State Capitol persist in this power grab, I believe they will lose in Court and in the political races coming up.
There will be great video of Democrats ordering police to arrest Catholic Bishops and priests.

People are going to lose their individual freedom this way I guess. The Bishop is still an individual isn’t he?

Washington state regulators have warned a Roman Catholic bishop that his diocese risks running afoul of state campaign finance laws if he follows through with a planned fund-raising effort opposing same-sex marriage on the November ballot.

ist amendment, speech and religion is in there ,maybe these dopes need to read it at their convention .
They have crapped all over Catholics but now election time they are worried the truth of what they have done will get out and hurt them .
I’m sure the media wil cover for them again in places like PA, NJ, DE,MD,NH,CO,FL

(Marriage =1 man + 1 woman,when they say marriage equality then they should support polygamy)
I'm all for the Church taking up the collection in exactly the manner described. Trying to prohibit this is just another aspect of incremental tyranny.
But I do ask this: what's the big idea with putting all the little envelopes into one big Security Envelope and sending them all at once? Why couldn't they just hand out stamped envelopes and have people drop them in the mail themselves?
Surely ther would be a couple of people in the congregation who would spring for a couple hundred "forever" stamps.
Is there something here I missed?

Left leaning churches do this kind of thing and never get a warning. Or so it seems to me looking back...
There is no wall between church and state. The church may interact in any manner it wants with the government. However there is a wall between state and church which is absolutely impenetrable. The state can not control, guide, demand or deny religion. A judicious government must have a moral foundation and a moral foundation can only be found in religion.
