  1. Twitter-Session Digest for: June 21, 2010 Real Liberal Christian Church & Christian Commons Project #

  2. Until I can travel to Gaza and back on the Gazan people's say so alone, I won't be satisfied. The US and Zionists should have no say in it. #

  3. Tea Party members are thickheaded. Deregulation facilitated the banksters. The oil companies are no different! #

  4. The commander of U.S. & NATO forces in Afghanistan, General Stanley McChrystal, is looking to get fired over a new Rolling Stone article. #

  5. Gen. Stanley McChrystal is either incredibly stupid or he wants to be fired so he won't be held responsible for his failure in Afghanistan. #

  6. It's either that or he's incredibly stupid and (rather than or) wants to be fired. #

  7. I wish the only people harmed by anti-environmentalism were the anti-environmentalists. God knows I'd like them all to turn though. #

  18. Obama to meet with McChrystal before making 'any final decisions' on dismissal - Real Liberal Christian Church #

  19. Siding with US District Judge Martin Feldman's ruling overturning Obama's moratorium on deep water drilling is insanely shortsighted. #

  20. "A majority of Americans still support offshore drilling." Stop asking the whole country. Ask only those living on the coasts. #

  21. "No one in their right mind can believe...a ship sent by...ayatollahs &...Revolutionary Guards do with humanitarian aid." I do. #

  22. "Israel imposed the blockade after Hamas...overran the..territory in June 2007." Stinking Liars! Hamas was elected in a free, fair election. #

  23. Lying Zionists, with US collusion, illegally funded & supplied stupid Fatah leaders in a coup attempt against duly elected Hamas. #

  24. Iran has just as much right to supply Gaza with humanitarian assistance as does anyone else. #

  25. Gaza civic leader Amjad Shawa: "We are not in need of more ketchup or mayonnaise. We need our freedom." Agreed! #

  26. Terrific rundown on Gaza stats by The Irish Times: #

  27. Gazans must be allowed to import & export & move freely for peaceful purposes and not under Israel's control at all. #

  28. I'm not for boycotting BP just until the leak is cleaned up & all wells have acoustical switches. I'm for ending offshore drilling, period. #

  29. I'm not just for ending offshore oil drilling. I'm for ending all oil drilling. We need to get off the oil. #

  30. There are enough existing wells to supply the plastics, etc., while we urgently transition to a green, real economy. It's an emergency. #

  31. If you want to win in Afghanistan, you'll sit down & come up with a win-win bringing lasting peace. Otherwise, you're just in the way. #

  37. "...'ick factor'...was not an indication of personal aversion," said Mike Huckabee. What's the point? I have a personal aversion. #

  38. What are they talking about? Billions have a personal aversion to the homosexual act, & there are homosexuals who are turned off by women. #

  39. "Ick" or "icky" are standard slang terms that children have used for decades & decades to describe their reaction to something, ... icky. #

  40. Most children initially find sex an "icky" concept regardless of whether it's heterosexual. #

  41. Most heterosexual adults are repulsed by homosexuality; otherwise, they'd engage in it and not be heterosexual. What's the problem? Wow. #

  42. This "ick" hit on Huckabee sounds like a whole lotta nothing. #

  43. I just read a psychologist, Carlotta Longhi, equating aiding changing from homosexuality to aiding committing suicide. Wow, stupid! #

  44. Where are the bad photos of Sarah Palin? Why do those who hate her show her beaming and looking good according to Republican standards? #

  45. I'm not advocating bad pictures of Sarah Palin. I'm just wondering what's going on, as in they want to run against her or she's been chosen. #

  46. I mean chosen, as in the media elitists have receive their marching orders at least for the pre-primary season. #

  47. Now just who do the richest of the rich want for the next US President? Is Obama doing their bidding well enough? No tough questions. #

  48. He won't stop the wars, banksters, oil companies, nuclear plants, unemployment, etc. They picked him for you because that way, they eat you. #

  49. MK Yochanan Plezner, chair, Israeli delegation, Council of Europe Parliamentary Assembly: "...less politically correct to support...Israel." #

  50. Of course it is becoming less politically correct to support Israel. Who can support ethnic cleansing land thieves & racist war-criminals? #

  51. "The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine" [Paperback], by Ilan Pappe" Commission Proceeds to the Christian Commons Project #

  52. "Belgian lawyers to charge Barak and Livni for war crimes" #

  53. I don't want to just pull out of Afghanistan, I want to make peace with the Pashtuns. Understand? #

  54. The US screwed up in Somalia in the early 1990's. America doesn't have to continue being stupid in Afghanistan. Bring in the peacemakers. #

  55. Let the peacemakers take the lead for once in history. Let the top US peace-movement leaders talk with the Pashtuns for the US government. #

  61. On: "Critiquing Masculinity [and XXX Pornography] at the [Marine] Corps," by Robert Jensen - Real Liberal Christian #

  62. Netanyahu says ships to Gaza are to get weapons into Palestine. The real reason is to free Gazans from land-thieving, racist Zionists. #

  63. Lebanon has granted permission for a Gaza Freedom Flotilla ship to go to Cyprus. It can then go to Gaza. Will Cyprus allow it? #

  64. Longest tennis match in history at Wimbledon today: 11 hours and five minutes. Wow, that's a long match. #

  65. "Immigrant farm workers' challenge: Take our jobs" That's a strange idea. If they go, wages will just go up for the same work. #

  66. There are homosexuals trying to say being tempted makes one homosexual. Jesus was tempted by the devil. Does that make him what he refused? #

  67. If you ever considered robbery, does it make you a robber even though you rejected the idea? #

  68. If you ever took something that didn't belong to you but have repented and don't do it anymore, are you still a common thief? #

  161. How about we do away with personal taxes and just have a progressive corporate/business tax: sliding-scale, no deductions? #

The following should appear at the end of every post:

According to the IRS, "Know the law: Avoid political campaign intervention":

Tax-exempt section 501(c)(3) organizations like churches, universities, and hospitals must follow the law regarding political campaigns. Unfortunately, some don't know the law.

Under the Internal Revenue Code, all section 501(c)(3) organizations are prohibited from participating in any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for elective public office. The prohibition applies to campaigns at the federal, state and local level.

Violation of this prohibition may result in denial or revocation of tax-exempt status and the imposition of certain excise taxes. Section 501(c)(3) private foundations are subject to additional restrictions.

Political Campaign Intervention

Political campaign intervention includes any activities that favor or oppose one or more candidates for public office. The prohibition extends beyond candidate endorsements.

Contributions to political campaign funds, public statements of support or opposition (verbal or written) made by or on behalf of an organization, and the distribution of materials prepared by others that support or oppose any candidate for public office all violate the prohibition on political campaign intervention.

Factors in determining whether a communication results in political campaign intervention include the following:

  • Whether the statement identifies one or more candidates for a given public office
  • Whether the statement expresses approval or disapproval of one or more candidates' positions and/or actions
  • Whether the statement is delivered close in time to the election
  • Whether the statement makes reference to voting or an election
  • Whether the issue addressed distinguishes candidates for a given office

Many religious organizations believe, as we do, that the above constitutes a violation of the First Amendment of the US Constitution.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

That said, we make the following absolutely clear here:

  • The Real Liberal Christian Church and Christian Commons Project not only do not endorse any candidate for any secular office, we say that Christianity forbids voting in such elections.
  • Furthermore, when we discuss any public-office holder's position, policy, action or inaction, we definitely are not encouraging anyone to vote for that office holder's position.
  • We are not trying to influence secular elections but rather want people to come out from that entire fallen system.
  • When we analyze or discuss what is termed "public policy," we do it entirely from a theological standpoint with an eye to educating professing Christians and those to whom we are openly always proselytizing to convert to authentic Christianity.
  • It is impossible for us to fully evangelize and proselytize without directly discussing the pros and cons of public policy and the positions of secular-office holders, hence the unconstitutionality of the IRS code on the matter.
  • We are not rich and wouldn't be looking for a fight regardless. What we cannot do is compromise our faith (which seeks to harm nobody, quite the contrary).
  • We render unto Caesar what is Caesar's. We render unto God what is God's.
  • When Caesar says to us that unless we shut up about the unrighteousness of Caesar's policies and practices, we will lose the ability of people who donate to us to declare their donations as deductions on their federal and state income-tax returns, we say to Caesar that we cannot shut up while exercising our religion in a very reasonable way.
  • We consider the IRS code on this matter as deliberate economic duress (a form of coercion) and a direct attempt by the federal government to censor dissenting, free political and religious speech.
  • It's not freedom of religion if they tax it.

And when they were come to Capernaum, they that received tribute money came to Peter, and said, Doth not your master pay tribute? He saith, Yes. And when he was come into the house, Jesus prevented him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? of whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute? of their own children, or of strangers? Peter saith unto him, Of strangers. Jesus saith unto him, Then are the children free. (Matthew 17:24-26)
