Pewjacked – Excommunicated for Not Backing Bush!

Rob says:

Thanks to [a friend and] the AP for this smoking gun:

Minister ex-communicates members for not backing Bush

How about that purported “liberal media bias” now? Can anyone remember the local atheist club splitting down the middle because some of its members wanted Clinton impeached? No? I think there’s a pattern here.

But now we may have to watch people get into disputes over whether that was even right for him to do or for us to criticize and so on. I won’t be surprised if it sets a trend among excitable ‘ministers’ and we see a radical separation of church and church, the second having joined the party. Come on, where is the love? And what did I say about why we need a private ballot?

  • Thankfully this pastor did resign, but in article on daily ethics.com, the Republican senator from his home state (NC) has proposed a bill that would allow pastors to endorse candidates and keep their tax-exempt status. I hope this receives the same public outcry as the pastor’s comments.
