Pastors ready for third-annual Pulpit Freedom Sunday on Sept. 26


100 pastors to preach sermons involving biblical  perspectives on electoral candidates, officeholders despite IRS rule  muzzling speech in the pulpit
Thursday, September 23, 2010


LEAWOOD, Kan. — One hundred pastors  nationwide will be participating in the Alliance Defense Fund’s third  annual Pulpit Freedom Sunday on Sept. 26. The pastors will preach  sermons related to biblical perspectives on the positions of electoral  candidates or current government officials, exercising their  constitutional right to free religious expression despite a problematic  Internal Revenue Service rule that activist groups often use to silence  churches.

Pulpit Freedom Sunday is an event associated with the ADF Pulpit Initiative(LINK),  a legal effort designed to secure the First Amendment rights of pastors  in the pulpit. The Pulpit Initiative is part of the larger ADF Church Project(LINK), Participating  pastors preaching on Pulpit Freedom Sunday will address the subject of  current candidates for office, including the positions held by those  candidates, in light of Scripture.

Hmmm... I thought this was about some sanity initiative, like the car-free sundays in the oil crisis, now some pulpit-free sundays in this current crisis of sane reasoning. But no, it's about adding MORE noise still!

Did you hear about the pastor who got fired for messing up an announcement about a Taffy Pull at St. Peter's?


 


Let's just say, there is no church called "St. Taffy's."

Democrats think the glass is half full.
Republicans think the glass is theirs.
Libertarians want to break the glass, because they think a conspiracy created it.

I believe mutual masturbation was often practiced in the early church in keeping with the spirit of loving one's neighbor.

I believe many atheists vacuum-clean their brain every sunday to keep God out.

People keep trying to tell me religion amounts to brain-washing, and yet, my mind remains quite dirty. Cool

Weird analogy. As if an omniscient omnipresent omnigenetic power could be removed with just a bit of cerebral Hoover suckage.



If there was a god, there wouldn't have ever been an atheist.
