Article seen on the AdBusters web site about Republican attempts to mobilise support for Bush directly through church groups. (CultureJammers: Onward Christian Voter)
The article comments,
It’s no surprise that Bush is counting on the religious right to put him back in office, but how far is he willing to go? And since when is it okay for churches to engage in partisan activity?
Define “partisan”? Does that mean the church cannot express a view on any issue at all. Some of Jesus’ teachings seem pretty partisan to me. The main point in the article seems to be that if you’re seen to be polically partisan you lose your tax-free charitable status. Couldn’t that be seen as a bribe?
