I don't "participate in, or intervene in (including the publishing or distributing of statements) any political campaign on behalf of or in opposition to any candidate for public office." However, I speak out about John McCain and Barack Obama and all the social issues of the day as the Holy Spirit moves me. This doesn't violate the U.S. tax code. Why doesn't it?

Every "political campaign ... for public office" is a secular campaign for a secular office. That is language from the 1954 amendment to the tax code submitted by then U.S. Democratic Senator from Texas, Lyndon Baines Johnson (1908-1973) and 36th President of the United States (1963-1969), who became President upon the assassination of, and coup d'état against, President John F. Kennedy.

Christians are not secular. Christians are religious. The secular is not religious. I don't campaign for or against anyone for secular office. I don't choose Caesar. Jesus is the King of kings and Lord of lords.

I say that the New Commandment is the rightful law of Heaven and Earth. I say that Jesus is for the oneness and that he shares the throne with God and with his true followers.
