I said it before, and now I'm saying it again. Churches need to be taxed. I don't see why a community organization should automatically be tax free just because they believe in a sky faerie. Plus, on top of that, so many churches and officials in them seem to treat the church as a wing of the Republican Party. Like this guy, for instance. Denying someone communion for stating that he thinks Obama is more pro-life than the GOP because of his positions across the board as opposed to only looking at the abortion issue is naked politics.
The GOP, despite calling itself pro-life, is really further than that label than the democrats - they are pro-war, pro-death penalty, pro-violence, and they seem to really only care about the lives of rich constituents.
Listening to the GOP airwaves, you get the sense that Jesus wasn't Jewish, he was actually a Republican. They also tell you that no Democratic candidate is a "true Christian" - which is part of why Obama is labeled a Muslim (even though he's a Christian) - and why the GOP base eats it up and believes it - after all, he's a Democrat, so they KNOW he's not a Christian, so if he's not a Christian, what is he? Why, look at his name, isn't it obvious? He's an evil Muslim, who probably secretly cheered on 9/11. I think they need a new category of stupid for anyone who actually believes Obama is a Muslim.
