Ousted church members ponder next move - Ousted church members ponder next move - May 7, 2005

Well, everyone thought it would begin with the Catholics...

Several members of the East Waynesville Baptist Church in Waynesville, North Carolina have been kicked out of their church by their pastor for not supporting President Bush. Perhaps one good thing about the hierarchical nature of the Catholic Church is that no one priest could do this at his parish on his own decision and he would likely get into trouble with his bishop if he tried.

I don't think that any Church is served well by tying itself to a particular candidate or politician. I think it only detracts from a focus on the message of the Father as revealed in the Son and the Spirit.
