I am so ashamed that churches can be bribed and corrupted. I have thought that churches should not be granted special tax status, because the priest I know will not speak their conscious against the government because they want to keep what comes into the coffers completely.
Well, I say, do not be under the jackboot of a government that lures you into the sin of disloyalty to your parishioners, your community and your country.
Christians are expected to live their beliefs and to suffer for them. How cowardly we have become (unfortunately) in the name of the Lord.
Lamentations and lamentations.
You're assuming 0bama let them in on his plans. I'd bet he snowed the churches too.
We have the same problem in the Episcopal Church and other churches.
The feds have enable the churches to pay for their SS, a generous non taxable housing allowance, automobile allowance, special discretionary funds for their use, and of course a smart phone for them and their spouses on top of basically free health insurance.
They will never say anything against a Clintoon, Carter, or Obozo, because if they are caught and recorded doing so. The church will lose its tax exempt status and the pastor's tax free special status.
Of course, Jessie HiJack$on, $harpton, and Obozo’s hate America Black preacher can spew their hatred of Republicans every Sunday and anyother time on tv or the radio with zero repercussions.
