  3. If the Egyptian military behaves itself, there will be an increase in civility & stability in Egypt. Egypt will be a light to the nations. #

  4. Down with the "stability" of the Plutocracy! Down with austerity. Up with prosperity for the global masses. #

  5. RT @johnballsghost: God Bless Egypt & its people. ...light that has shown humanity the way & path. Beware, tyrants & enemies of humanity. #

  6. There will be a heartfelt monument in Tahrir Square to the fallen who rose to the occasion braving death for peace & freedom for all. #egypt #

  7. The Egyptian people are helping to liberate the world. Those who were against those in Tahrir Square who want peace & decency are wicked. #

  18. #Egypt didn't need to be invaded by the US. It didn't need covert operatives creating death squads. It needed moral & intellectual backing. #

  19. Glenn Beck, Mike Huckabee, & Newt Gingrich have it wrong. If the US & EU treat Egypt fairly, Egypt will not be belligerent toward anyone. #

  20. This is a fairly well-thought-out article. "Wikipedia Is Male-Dominated. That Doesn't Mean It's Sexist." http://slate.me/hZdyFu..... #

  27. "Government-caused Uncertainty Continues to Depress Jobs" Yes, if peoples' gov. does full-employment New Deal, there won't be uncertainty. #

  28. There weren't many unemployed in WWII, so go to war for environmental reclamation, clean energy, new infrastructure, whatever needs doing. #

  29. Remember #Egypt Hillary Clinton said the Mubaraks are family friends & Tony Blair said Mubarak is a "force for good." Watch your backs. #

  30. @eel_deal Ethanol for fuel is crap - a waste of land that should be for food. Electric from geothermal, solar, wind, etc. is the way to go. #

  49. Egyptians are coming together. Zionists are coming apart. It's class-warfare. The Egyptian & Jewish poor & working class are rightly one. #

  50. The real road to stability runs through peaceful, worldwide revolution, not puppet dictators or imperial tyrants. #

  51. Oh Yes! "Israel staggered by Egypt protests, social tensions at home" http://bit.ly/fgiJHE..... The Empire fears Socialism more than "Islamists." #

  52. Benjamin Netanyahu said if Mubarak were to fall, Egypt would fall into chaos. The exact opposite will happen if the spooks stay out of it. #

  53. Egypt has no desire to make war on Jews but does want fairness for the Palestinians. Jews, it is more blessed to give than to receive. #

  54. Mr. Obama, what position are you going to take upon the next revolution against a US-puppet dictator? Will you blow it again and again...? #

  55. Why, Mr. Obama, have you sent your military to Jordan to reassure the monarch? If Jordanians want him, let him win free & fair elections. #

  56. Why, Mr. Obama, have you sent your military to Israel to reassure the fascists? Why haven't you told them to give up their evil nationalism? #

  57. Mr. Obama, lift the sanctions on Cuba. Open up to them. They will open up to the US. Let them be a mixed-economy to the degree they choose. #

  74. Egypt's PM Ahmed Shafiq said restoring security is government's main priority. I say the way to do that is via consistent signs of fairness. #

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)
