If you are ever in North Carolina and your a Democrat you are not welcome at this church. The pastor said "if they didn't support George Bush, they should resign or repent" and "the actions were not politically motivated."

It can't be anymore politically motivated!  crazy   Yeah sure

I just love it when assholes identify themselves. Far be it for me to defend the church, but I'm sure that this is not a widespread issue (although others may soon follow).

"During last Sunday's sermon, he acknowledged that church members were upset because he named people, and he says he'll do it again because he has to according to the word of God."

I can't imagine anyone agreeing with this preacher. I couldn't even imagine George Bush agreeing with this.

If he's a preacher, he should stick to what his book told him to do...

Blessed are the peacemakers, For they shall be called sons of God.

But I say to you, love your enemies.

Judge not, that you be not judged.

Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.

Well, this guy is the leader of his church and therefore has the right to ban anyone he wants. I mean, why would a democrat want to be there anyways? Most likely all they do is praise Bush and his stupid ideas. This is the United States and we have freedom and that is why this kind of church can exist. Is it very KKKish? Absolutely.

Jesus christ, I live in the area guys and i know this church and have heard of this guy before. He is regarded as a NUT in the community, and please pay attention and notice that many people have protested the church and are leaving. I have many many family members in Waynesville and I know the community doesn't condone this sort of crap. If it wasn't such a shocking wrong thing to do, then it wouldn't have made the regional news.

Don't worry, Pendrilsaint, I think most of us realize that it is not typical of even some of the more conservative regions of this country.

Quoting Pendrilsaint (Reply 8):

What's worse Pendrilsaint is churches (among other organizations) that don't say this sort of thing explicitly but most definitely imply it, guilting people into a political ideology, and all the while you can't call them on it because they said nothing explicity.

By the way, this is why a certain state with the largest Bush-margin is the state with the largest Bush-margin.

There are indeed many churches that guilt their congregations, but I think you are less likely to find them in Western North Carolina, which actually had some very close counties with regards to presidential election results (my county was decided by less than 100 votes). I don't think it's fair to say outright that a majority of churches guilt their congregations like that, because honestly I don't think they do. It's a touchy subject in congregations and most don't want to hit on it (except those like Mr. Chandler and the good Mr. Burn-a-Cross Falwell = ) .

I don't quite catch your drift with the certain state comment...I just want to make sure everyone realizes it was most certainly not North Carolina with the largest margin...I believe it was Alabama with 63% 37% split.

I'm far from saying a majority of churches do, btw, just that there are a healthy few that do, either directly, or indirectly, and that is dangerous.

Pendrilsaint, I appreciate you saying this. Good to know the guy is considered a loon by his own community. Because otherwise, I was about to say that this country has reached a new low.

If this guy is considered to be such a nut by his own community, why is he still a pastor at this church? If my rabbi made such comments, the congregation would be quick to make it known to the people responsible that we don't want this guy. Can the same be done with this pastor?

His comments are pretty disgusting. Its weirder that he considers it the word of God.

The church should lose any government money that it gets. Plain and simple. And, the congregation should make it clear to the head of the church that stuff like that will not be tolerated, and that either he goes, or their money goes. That'll change things mighty quick. Money, not God, is the most powerful force in this world.

I do not agree with the Pastor at all. I am for seperation of Church and State. Sadly it doesent surprise me that it was a Baptist Church that engaged this. Churches are *supposed* to accept anyone regardless of their race/sex/sexuality/age/nationality/language/ ect.

I agree, but it also show the fanaticism of the right that SOME born-again's have for not just conservative values, but in holding up George W. Bush as almost a Christ-like figure.

This being a free country I respect the right of the Pastor and his fellow leaders in his church politicizing the decision of whom they will allow in their services...

but I sure as Hell think they are wrong....

religion is about your feelings on God, and not your political preferences. Or anything else for that matter. If your church turns people away for thinking differently on politics or anything other than religious issues, then your church will stagnate.

If your church turns people away from the word of God and the teachings of the bible, for any reason, then they are disobeying a basic tenet of the bible......teaching and helping those who need it.

I can see this happening with no problem - and not just in North Carolina.

The preacher, IMO, has lost his focus. Perhaps what he needs is a "real come to Jesus" meeting to get put back on track.

I can't say I'm surprised.
