pastors on campaign 2012
byJoel Gehrke Commentary Staff Writer


Attorney General Eric Holder, the
IRS, and the liberal lawyers at the ACLU will brief several hundred
pastors in the African American community on how to participate in the
presidential election -- which the Congressional Black Caucus chair
expects will help President Obama's campaign.


"We will have representatives from nine denominations who actually
pastor somewhere in the neighborhood of about 10 million people, and
we're going to first of all equip them with the information they need to
know about what they can say and what they cannot say in the church
that would violate their 501c3 status with the IRS," Rep. Emanuel
Cleaver, D-Mo., told MSNBC today.


"In fact, we're going to have the IRS administrator there, we're
going to have the Attorney General Eric Holder there, we're going to
have the lawyers' organization from around the country, the ACLU -- all
giving ministers guidance about what they can and cannot do," he noted.


Cleaver said they would not tell pastors which candidate to support.
They will let them know who to regard as the bad guys, though (hint: not
Democrats). "We're going to talk about some of the draconian laws that
have cropped up around the country as a result of the 17 percent
increase in African American votes," Cleaver said, describing voter ID
laws as a form of Jim Crow-style "poll tax" on seniors and black voters.


The CBC chairman is confident that "President Obama is going to get
95 percent of the [African American] vote," and wants to keep that
turnout high. "We want to let them know that there is a theological
responsibility to participate in the political process, at least in the
Judeo-Christian tradition," he said.

    What a bunch of Hypocrites! If they studied the bible they are supposedly preaching from, not a single one could vote for Obuthead. These people have no Idea of what being a Christian is. Obuthead and his regime are one of the most corrupt to ever be in control of this country and his followers are just as bad if not worse!!!!!

    "Do not give dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to pigs. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and then turn and tear you to pieces.

    Describes the leftie lunatics, doesn't it?

    Any church that would allow itself to be used by politicians to promote a particular individual is required by law to forfeit its tax exempt status.

    It is a good election strategy but racist to the core. Appealing to the segment of population to vote because of color of the skin clearly is racist. It justifies white people voting against obama for precisely the same reason. And what does it do to the principle of separation of state and church? It ignores it. The secular liberal media ignores that and actually they are quietly supporting this tactic. My suggestion is that "white" congregation should rally themselves to vote against obama and see if 95% blacks and 76% Jews will be enough to get him reelected. Christians, the real ones not the phony black liberation theologists, should unite against obama because he is very hostile to Christianity in general and white Christians in particular.

    I was in agreement with all you said up to the point where you said "My suggestion is that "white" congregations should rally themselves to vote against Obama." Firstly, it is appropriate that churches address issues and it is not appropriate that churches promote particular individuals. Secondly, "Christians, real ones", do not vote according to skin color.

    But they should vote their self interest. Blacks are going to vote skin color so whites should do the same.

    I understand what you are saying.... but first off, such a thing would NEVER BE TOLERATED by the leftie loonies! But then again, turn about is fair play!

    I read an article that says many more Jews are turning away from him...and that the Hispanic vote is up in the air!

    And could you see what would happen if Romney did: Caucasians for Romney. Or send out a tax payer funded civil servant to rally votes from all the White Churches? WOW I can hear the Race Pimps screaming now!

    BTW obama is pretty hostile to most religions with the obvious exception to islam!

    Thank you, Marek, for commenting.

    You are right. Romney should not rally whites to vote for him because he is white. It would cause backlash but white voters should know anyway to vote for him because he is the better man for the job

    Romney has the experience of a successful business man behind him! Not just a community organizer! Romney knows how to run a business and a state. Obama knows how to spend someone else's money and run a country down the tubes!

    The BO admin is freaking out because of BO saying he supports gay marriage because it is said that blacks do not like homosexuality, especially the religious ones..so they are worried it could affect voting..LOL

    Hello! I was thinking too that the Hispanic voters would be more than upset with the gay marriage that obama is supporting. Nothing more macho than a Latin Man!

    Can't wait to hear the backlash on that statement!
