This is just plain nasty.
Why? Why not just not give your money? Why try to hurt others? Oh yeah, they're DUmmies, I forgot.bob_weaver (1000+ posts) Mon Sep-22-08 12:06 AM
I dropped this note into the collection basket at my Mom's church today: "You do not have the right to make political statements during the Mass. A major tenet of the United States Constitution is separation of church and state, and you have crossed that clearly defined boundary of separation. Your tax-exempt status is at risk. The church does not have the right to tell parishoners how to vote, or even what criteria to use when voting. This is not the first time this has happened at (-name of church-) If this continues, you will be facing a lawsuit challenging your tax-exempt status. For now, we have decided to donate all the money we would have donated to (-name of church-) in the next 2 months to the No on 8 campaign, to reflect our support of same-sex marriage. After that, we will permanently donate all money that we would have donated to the Mission to Planned Parenthood instead. (-name of church-) will not get any of our money, ever again.
This is the enemy folks, this is what we're dealing with.az chela (1000+ posts) Mon Sep-22-08 12:08 AM
