    Tons of Black churches urge their parishioners to vote for Obama. I should know; I go to one.

    Wow, Texas churches are conservative.

    Catholic bishops condemed Ryan's budget plan as "immoral."

    It does seem like it would be a common thing, however it looks like the church is in some trouble, and may have violated the law.

    I'm LDS and the leaders in SLC have said they are neutral. butt the talk at church during casual conversation is always a hope for the nations first Mormon Pres.
    But to the churches credit theres never been anything said from a pulpit.

    Sister Simone Campbell, who led the “Nuns on the Bus” tour for social justice this summer, called the GOP budget plan “immoral” in a spirited speech at the Democratic National Convention on Wednesday (Sept. 5).

    “Paul Ryan claims this budget reflects the principles of our shared faith,” Campbell said, as she took direct aim at Mitt Romney’s running mate, who has often cited his Catholic faith as the underpinning of his fiscal policies. “But the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops stated that the Ryan budget failed a basic moral test, because it would harm families living in poverty,” she said.

    No suprise that Mittens and Ryan are out to get those poor people that don't pay their fair share.
    Why mittens may not make 20 million next year which is ruious in a rich mans eyes, and we can't have that.
