  3. Some charges against Charles Rangel might be honest errors; but if he collected hundreds of thousands in unreported rent, he should resign. #

  4. Andrew Breitbart, please do the right things. Repent and atone about Shirley Sherrod and others. #

  5. Andrew Breitbart, give the world an opportunity to forgive you for more than just because of your ignorance. #

  6. "BreakingMSNBC Breaking: Andrew Breitbart shows he has a
    conscious and heart—-will apologize to Mrs. Sherrod." He's losing. #

  7. Mike Mullen is saying Julian Assange might have Afghani blood on his hands over the leaks, as if Joint Chiefs Chairman Adm. Mullen doesn't! #

  8. Unemployment is high so former workers will be willing to work for less. That's it. It's to increase the unearned share of plutocrats. #

  9. The US Pentagon has more blood on its hands than does any other entity on the planet. Yet it has the unmitigated gall to point at Assange. #

  10. Julian Assange is anti-war; & if any soldier who kills for the Plutocrats is "harmed" by leaks of war-crimes, it's the Pentagon's fault. #

  11. Julian Assange is not the one launching Hellfire missiles murdering innocent women & children & the aged & infirmed. The Pentagon is. #

  12. Who has launched the weapons to kill the hundreds of thousands who've died in wars based on sheer lies? The Pentagon, CIA, and Blackwater. #

  13. Saying Assange may have blood on his hands is as saying so does Richard Goldstone for reporting on Israeli war crimes against Gaza. #

  14. Saying WikiLeaks may have blood on its hands is saying so too do all the media outlets on account of having released the leaks. #

  15. The Pentagon is trying to protect mass killers — itself. #

  16. Watch what more evils the White House and Pentagon do while they point the finger at whistleblowers sounding alarms for the people. #

  17. This latest Pentagon twisting is a Zionist tactic. Blame protesters if the street is blocked & an imaginary ambulance can't get through. #

  18. The imaginary ambulance wouldn't have to face a blocked street if protesters didn't have anything to protest against. #

  19. GOP wants Israel to attack Iran? http://ff.im/owt8n..... #

  66. The problems with Social Security and Medicare are the Federal Reserve and Pentagon. Choose wisely. #

  67. If US Dist. Court Chief Judge Vaughn Walker is right that CA Prop 8 violates due process & equal protection, pedophiles may marry children. #

  68. Judge Vaughn Walker is a legal idiot if he thinks laws may not be based on morality. Every law is reducible to morality (right vs. wrong). #

  69. If the Supreme Court were to say that no state law against homosexual marriage could stand, it might tip states to declare their succession. #

  70. My religion is against coercing people either way. However, the issue of homosexual marriage is that of mundane law. What about incest? #

  71. We can't take homosex in isolation concerning sexual-behavior laws. If arguments against limits fail, then there will be no limits but Hell! #

  72. If homosexuals have marriage rights based on current arguments, then so do practitioners of pedophilia, incest, necrophilia, & bestiality. #

  73. I have never heard a good argument for drawing the line after sanctioning homosexual marriage. They are all fallacious. #

  74. Israel reaching into Lebanon to cut Lebanese trees is a stupid provocation and illegal. #

  75. Mexican drug gangs have been getting such a pass that I've been smelling banksters and "intelligence" agencies for a couple of years now. #

  76. "The evidence shows beyond any doubt that parents' genders are irrelevant to children's developmental outcomes." That is utterly stupid. #

  77. Statistics already show that children raised by homosexual couples are more likely to engage in homosexuality. That's an outcome. #

  78. There are also many negative medical and psychological aspects much more prevalent in homosexual behavior and regardless of "affirmation." #

  79. Raising children in that environment will promote those negatives. Science and technology are not near masking all the symptoms. #

  90. Assange is not an American and doesn't live here. The US is not in a declared war. The DoD wonders if US law can touch him. It can't. #

  91. When is some large country going to issue it's own interest-free money? Why are people so extremely slow and dull on this? It's amazing. #

  92. I'm watching a video of Pentagon fascists propagandizing against WikiLeaks. The hypocrisy is overwhelming. Do they take lie pills? #

  93. How many innocent civilians, women and children, old people and sick people, have the Pentagon, CIA, & contractors murdered for oil & gas? #

  94. The issue isn't WikiLeaks redacting collaborator names but the US waging wars to dominate other's raw materials, markets, labor, & capital. #

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)
