    There's no way a "church" that is so overtly political should be getting government funding of any kind.

    Please elaborate. There's nothing "faith based" about openly stumping for a particular candidate while spewing racist hate. Well, maybe there is if you believe in Black Liberation Theology.

    suffice it to say sherlock that the money the church is suggested to receive was not for sermons...

    perhaps you know how to operate the link to actually see the story?

    clue: your cursor will highlight when it's time to click.

    Oh so Trinity has lost its tax exempt status after we have all acknowledged it exists for no other purpose than to cash in on racism and push a political agenda?

    Yeah I didn't think so.

    As opposed to Hagee's Church? Or Parsley's Church?

    Yeah... I didn't think so.

    I didn't see Hagee or Parsley mocking Hillary in the pulpit, saying that she thought she was entitled to the nomination because she was white.....Maybe I missed it...

    which has what to do with them being too political to be allowed to retain their tax exempt status?
