Truth to Power

How nice

“How nice-X205”

Soon as I begin rereading the brill Preacher graphic novel I learn of a church near Asheville, North Carolina that has removed all it’s democratic members. Nice.

“One of the local women who got excommunicated said on TV that it was like a cult. Another man who got excommunicated said that the rest of the congregation stood up and applauded as the Democrats were told to leave.”

Looks as if they need a visit from Jessie.

Follow up, from a local paper:

Religion and Politics Clash

Religion and politics clash over a local church’s declaration that Democrats are not welcome.

East Waynesville Baptist asked nine members to leave. Now 40 more have left the church in protest. Former members say Pastor Chan Chandler gave them the ultimatum, saying if they didn’t support George Bush, they should resign or repent. The minister declined an interview with News 13. But he did say “the actions were not politically motivated.” There are questions about whether the bi-laws were followed when the members were thrown out.</i>

And the reason that this intolerant goof had to toss in the “not politically motivated” bit was because he knows that they should lose their tax exempt status for this little stunt. Seperation of church and state. Look it up, you nitwit.
