The Far Right's Reverend "White"

I really hate where this is all going.

Chris Broughton, the man who brought an assault rifle and a handgun to the Obama event in Arizona last week, attended a fiery anti-Obama sermon the day before the event, in which Pastor Steven Anderson said he was going to "pray for Barack Obama to die and go to hell", Anderson confirmed to TPMmuckraker today. ...The sermon, which was titled "Why I Hate Barack Obama" and also contained virulent anti-gay themes.
Of course the far right Rev's name isn't really White, but he's a much more extreme, reverse Rev. Wright, who the media was so excited about a year ago. So since they gave the gun guy air time already, do you suppose they're going to go check on his spirtual advisor? And cluck about how the GOP should renounce him? Not holding my breath.

The spewing is symptomatic of the knowledge deprivation that makes right wingers so full of hate/resentment. Unfortunately, those like the 'pastors' you encountered are leading the blind into doing themselves yet more harm. Pathetic.

Calls to violence, war, persecution and genocide have been issuing from pulpits since the first bearded flea bag got up on a stump and began to preach.

We can't shut them up, but we sure as hell can take away their tax exemption! Bush tried to use that to shut up the NAACP while the Evangelicals were telling their flock to vote Republican or go to Hell. It's time we enforced the tax code here.

Ruth it is pathetic and Fogg you're right. It's well past time to enforce the tax code on these churches that mix politics with religion.
