Blatant Tax Cheats of WNC

Why are these churches still getting a total tax break?? These are not "non-political" nonprofits - these are active political organizations, and they are openly funding and promoting political agendas. Almost every fundamentalist church in this area is displaying these signs. I'm snapping pics of them, and will be sending them to the IRS along with a demand that these churches lose their tax-free status.

 The fundies are determined to impose their fanatical and bigoted religious beliefs on the public, and have succeeded in many states. In fact, NC has been the only southern state that hasn't passed a "constitutional" amendment declaring that legal marriages can only exist between a male and a female. But now they finally got their Prop 1 on the ballot, and hope to make the state codify legal discrimination. How can something be part of a state constitution that is inherently unconstitutional federally?

 I've noticed that none of these dogmatic fanatics can answer this question: How does the marriage of same-gender couples negatively impact your personal relationship? How does it in any way affect the quality of your marriages? Here's a suggestion for you holier-than-thou loonies who are just itching to bring on the rigid, authoritarian, fundamentalist theocracy of your warped little dreams: Mind Your Own Business!!!

 You are not entitled to decide what other individuals do in and with their relationships. Just like you are not entitled to decide whether or not I get to use contraception. BUTT. OUT. In the words of your holy book - and good advice, I might add - take care of the log in your own eye before fussing about the speck in your brother's. In other words, morons, stop worrying about the perceived sins of others and worry about making sure your own life is sinless. Last I heard, you folks were committing TONS of them.

I wish people who create message signs would learn to use punctuation correctly.

Am I wrong?

Anna, keep snapping the pics, and keep sending them to the IRS. You might consider sending them to your closest mainstream medium newspaper, or even local network TV affiliates, with a short editorial (like the one right here!).

Demand an explanation! (I sure as hell would like one.)

"I understand drugs, just as well as I know why the government wants to keep people from accessing them, lest those people wake up and tune in to what's been happening to them. Feed then alcohol and pharmaceuticals and close down the free range with barbed wire and barbiturates. Here's your soap on a rope for the prison shower and you'll get your shot of whiskey in Hell; just the one, of course, courtesy of the dog that pursues you." -- Les Visible

Unfortunately, the ones who most need plant-based clarity are the ones not permitting themselves any!
