But would you also object to black churches doing the souls to the polls thing?

Does anyone honestly think democrats are not telling people who to vote for just as much as republicans are?

I dont like politics in church either, but ... i think its real dishonest, or hypocritical, when the liberals get upset and rail about those awful conservatives doing what they do themselves.

"Black" churches have always been political, thats where the 50s social protests started and made progress. Thats good, but its bad when conservatives do it?

It is a bad law i agree. I did research. There has only been one case even prosecuted, and it was blatant .. all they got was a warning and the IRS told them how they could change it to get away with it.

There are churches that report themselves, daring the IRS to take action.

It is not enforced ... so why even have it?

But come on

lets be fair

if you are going to complain about conservatives doing it, stop doing it in liberal circles.

Can you imagine if a "white" church gathered people at their church to go get registered, and to go vote ? ... I would bet it would not take you a day to write an article demanding they be prosecuted.
