Vote for the Mormon, not the Muslim' sign stirs controversy



Posted on October 19, 2012 at 8:30 AM
LEAKEY, Texas -- A controversy regarding a political sign prominently displayed outside a church is playing out in a small town west of San Antonio.
Is it protected speech or political hate? And does it have a place on a church marquee?
The sign reads, "Vote for the Mormon, not the Muslim! The capitalist, not the communist!"
That marquee standing outside a non-denominational church has become the talk of the town in Leakey — about 90 miles northwest of San Antonio.

Since it is a church, it is classified as a non-profit organization. That means, by law, it can not endorse a political candidate.[/QUOTE]

Free speech... yes.

No, it has no place on a church marquee.

And since Obama claims to be a Christian, I'm not sure they can claim the sign is a political endorsement of a candidate.

But you can only assume it's endorsing a political candidate if one of them is Christian and one is Muslim. Are you saying Obama is Muslim? Or Romeny? They both claim to be Christian.

A church has no right to be delving into politics. Its a church.

Tell that to Obama and his minions.. He was groomed every Sunday by Rev. Wright.

LMAO!

In a galaxy far far away...
Ask any black person you know if they ever heard a preacher in their church push for Dimocrat votes.
