4. I knew it was coming.
He stepped over a line that even Southern Baptists won't tolerate.

My father is a deacon in a Southern Baptist Church (and before DUers become all judgmental, his church has black members and black elders), and he was disgusted by this. Dad said that if this had happened in his church, the deacons would have met THAT night and sent the pastor on his way.

What's even better is that this pastor's career in church work is OVER. No one will hire him. Maybe Bush can make a position for him in his staff, since he likes to reward suck-ups.

19. This man is not a "pastor
he is the spawn of
Satan. Their satan , of course. I hope his church work is over , but I doubt it , very much. He will be their new poster boy.Many of his fellow pastors feel the same, I am sure. I know the Southern Baptists very well. Evil folks.

5. Good!
Maybe this will serve as a warning to other churches to follow the law or risk losing their tax exempt status.

snip:
Chandler's resignation came a day after a national group that lobbies for church-state separation urged the Internal Revenue Service to investigate the tax-exempt status of the East Waynesville Baptist Church.

IRS rules bar clear-cut politicking by tax-exempt groups. Last October, days before Bush won a second term, the IRS said it was investigating about 60 charities and other tax-exempt groups -- about a third of them churches -- for potentially breaking rules that bar them from participating in political activity.

The outcome of those investigations is not known. The IRS is barred from naming the organizations it investigates or announcing case results.

12. ANNOUNCEMENT: (WP) A SPOKESMAN FOR THE BUSH
Administration has said in a press release that the Reverend Chan Chandler has been appointed Assistant Secretary of Education. This appointment follows a minor controversy in the pastor's North Carolina congregation but the President feels Reverend Chandler has been exonerated of all charges against him. The nomination is expected to receive no serious congressional challenge acccording to Senator Joseph Lieberman (D-Connecticut).
