Trump wants to allow churches to endorse political candidates again

Tlhis is an alarming story I just saw that hasn't been noticed by anyone analyzing the tax "reform" bill. Trump wants to get rid of the law that doesn't allow churches to endorse politicians. This is very alarming, considering how many churchgoers there are that believe whatever their church tells them. America may end up like Iran and Iraq with religious leaders and militias running the country. Everyone should be concerned about this.

Let it go ahead because the world of non-believers will be watching what happens. The US Church knows very little and speaks even less truth especially the Gospel.

Then as soon as the Nu America continues bombing foreign nations like it has done for decades, then they can react.

Otherwise, at least give it a chance to see if it works. They have a rule to obey: Thou Shalt Not Commit Murder.

I think this is a good thing in many ways.

As a Christian my religion is a huge part of my politics. I am being serious. All my social values come from my religion, ALL of them.

I see no problem with this. Politics is all about being organized together. Society is politically very powerful. Collectivism is everything in democracy and politics.

The Bible Belt has always been a huge power base. It is a vital ingredient in the Republican mix (and sometimes Democrat, too).

I don't want another Pat Robinson, especially one that could actually become President.

That was my first thought. I'm down with them endorsing the very moment they file legitimate taxes.

We know - you're a Christian Zionist. You even made threads about it.

Its all right Iraq- Bush - God is on our side

www.theguardian.com...



George Bush has claimed he was on a mission from God when he launched the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq, according to a senior Palestinian politician in an interview to be broadcast by the BBC later this month. Mr Bush revealed the extent of his religious fervour when he met a Palestinian delegation during the Israeli-Palestinian summit at the Egpytian resort of Sharm el-Sheikh, four months after the US-led invasion of Iraq in 2003. One of the delegates, Nabil Shaath, who was Palestinian foreign minister at the time, said: "President Bush said to all of us: 'I am driven with a mission from God'. God would tell me, 'George go and fight these terrorists in Afghanistan'. And I did. And then God would tell me 'George, go and end the tyranny in Iraq'. And I did."

It's about time.

Everybody should have free speech.

They've been discriminated against for far too long.

What's everybody so scared of ?

If there was a Satan he would endorse both parties since they are really the same party.

You didn't happen to finagle a way to get your name on the ballot, now did you?
