I just listened to Bill O’Reilly discuss Michelle Obama’s comment that “there is no place better than church to talk politics.” My first thought was to agree with the First Lady and to ask why she doesn’t do something about her Democrat party which believes the First Amendment’s so-called “separation” of church and state means, among other things, that churches cannot take a political stance. The IRS disallows politics in the pulpits and pews across America. Why? Because some Americans oppose tax-exempt faith-based-religions and find it distasteful when they are forced to fund a politically religious ideology. It is necessary for me to pay for ‘their’ abortions, but it is not okay for my pastor to discuss the immorality of it – or advise me to vote-out the party advocating for it. If that’s not enough, a restaurant is under attack for offering a discount to church-goers who drop-by with their church bulletin in hand.
I feel certain Michelle Obama approves of pastors counselling their members to vote for Barack Obama, and a basket of other Obama-isms, including educating young girls in the sanctuary that the Obama’s will make their early sex life safe and sanctioned….and don’t forget, no young woman needs to be punished for her mistake.
Never mind that Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and Jeremiah Wright, all “reverends,” are never taken to task for their ugly and egregious anti-American rhetoric which you and I are forced to fund. Jesse Jackson has quite a list of non-profits under his umbrella. Tax cheat Reverend Al Sharpton’s non-profit organization is continually in trouble with the IRS, but he never loses his tax-exempt status. We call him “reverend” anyway. When Jeremiah Wright, Obama’s pastor at the Trinity United Church of Christ, compared Barack to Jesus Christ – from the pulpit, the IRS didn’t blink. Virginia’s Islamic Saudi Academy did not submit tax reports to the IRS for their tax-exempt indoctrination madrassa for years. It’s enough to say that O’Reilly’s conversation was not a satisfying or substantive one.
When Mrs. Obama was rallying the vote and made these statements, she was speaking at a conference of the African Methodist Episcopal Church Conference. Have I mentioned that I am leaving the Methodist Church which has tilted Left to the point of proneness, as it does the bidding of the evil National Council of Churches. Read more at The Tennessean.
A Pennsylvania restaurant, Prudhomme’s Lost Cajun Kitchen, is under a “state discrimination investigation” for offering a discounted meal on Sunday to those church-goers who present a church bulletin.
A “retired electrical engineer” filed the claim against the restaurant:
He said this not out of spite, but out of a feeling against the prevailing self-righteousness that stems from religion, particular in Lancaster County,” Wolff told the York Daily Record. “I don’t consider it an earth-shaking affair, but in this area in particular, we seem to have so many self-righteous religious people, so it just annoys me.”
The restaurant is not tax-exempt, and it’s not a church. The engineer is targeting those self-righteous Christian patrons. It’s another assault on Christianity, something Michelle Obama knows a lot about. There’s more to this story. Read it at Pirate’s Cove.
