    Lets see politics preached from the pulpit of a predominately white church in favor of a Republican.
    Then see how long they stay tax exempt

    On June 27, 2007, Kevin Drum of The Washington Monthly wrote:

    "I think Democrats are smart to expend some effort highlighting Republican obstructionism in the 110th Congress. It's an easy charge to make stick, since it's plainly true, and it has two equally important targets: the press and the public.

    The press, for its part, needs to get over its 'both sides are equally at fault' schtick, and the public, for its part, needs to know why nothing seems to be getting done in Congress.

    Right now, all they see are headlines telling them that 'Congress Fails to Act' on this, that, and the other. They need to know exactly who's responsible for that."

    Have voters forgotten who and what put 11 million out of work,out of medical insurance, killed retirement plans and in general wiped out the economy twice in the last 30 years? ?

    Republicans are simply too dangerous to be in charge of OUR money and OUR economy!

    No jobs,no medical insurance,retirement plans up in smoke by the party that believes flippin burgers is a great alternative never mind that parents can no longer be home parenting.

    This is what I mean:

    1, BAILOUT ENTITLEMENT - The Reagan/ Bush Savings and Loan Heist( millions out of work)
    Jeb Bush, George Bush Sr., and his son Neil Bush have all been implicated in the Savings and Loan Scandal, which cost American tax payers over $1.4 TRILLION dollars (note that this was about one quarter of our national debt").

    The Reagan/Bush savings and loan heist was considered the largest theft in history at the time. George Herbert Walker Bush then took $1.4 trillion of taxpayers money to cover the theft.
    The Bush family and the S&L (Savings and Loan) Scandal

    2. BAILOUT ENTITLEMENT - The Bush/Cheney Wall Street Bank Fraud on Consumers(million out of work)
    Yes, substantial fraud was involved. For example, mortgage companies and banks used deceit to get people to take on mortgages when there was no possibility that the borrowers would be able to meet the payments. Not only was this fraud, but this fraud depended on government authorities ignoring their regulatory responsibilities."

    3.CRIMINAL BAILOUT ENTITLEMENT - Only 3 major Financial Institutions were at risk in spite of what we’re told ?
    "There were just a handful of institutions that were terribly weakened. AIG the insurer, Bank of America and Citigroup. Those three were clearly in very weakened form. Many of the other big banks simply were not.
    "Good Billions After Bad" - One Year After Wall Street Bailout, Pulitzer Winners Barlett and Steele Investigate Where All the Money Went

    4. WALL STREET ENTITLEMENT - Privatizing Social Security Would Place the Nations Economy at Risk
    "Social Security privatization will raise the size of the government's deficit to nearly $700 billion per year for the next 20 years, almost tripling the size of the national debt.

    Put simply, moving to a system of private accounts would not only put retirement income at risk--it would likely put the entire economy at risk."

    5. RECKLESS ENTITLEMENT - Still A Bad Idea – Bush Tax Cuts - (DO NOT create Jobs)

    The ENTITLEMENT program for the wealthy at the expense of the middle class = tax increases for the middleclass.

    6. CRIMINAL ENTITLEMENT Reagan/Bush Iran-Contra Illegal Sale of Weapons

    7. CRIMINAL ENTITLEMENT The Nixon Watergate - Illegal wire tap of democratic headquarters

    Whatever people need to know about politics, it shouldn't be delivered from the pulpit in the manner in which Jarrett delivered it ... not if the church wants to retain its tax-exempt status.

    Are you suggesting that the people in that congregation are so out of touch with meaningful news sources that they wouldn't learn about important political facts if they didn't hear it on Sunday?

    When your answer to Valerie Jarrett giving an Obama campaign speech from the pulpit is, " .... They need to know exactly who's responsible for that," it does sound like you are suggesting that they wouldn't know about it if it weren't preached on Sunday.

    Or perhaps you were just randomly posting without regard to the OP. :dunno:
