Churches Doing The Devil's (Financial) Work

At Sunday's mass all over the state of Maine, priests asked Catholic churchgoers to make an additional, second donation on Sunday toward repealing the marriage equality law in the state. Read the entire sorry state of affairs at The Advocate.

How can this possibly be legal? This is blatant political fundraising and lobbying by a tax-exempt organization. I realize that churches have blurred the line between faith and politics for centuries, but to openly admit to becoming a PAC? God, I hate religion.

I've said it before and I will say it until I die and go to Catholic Hell: churches should be taxed. If they are political machines, they should play (and pay) by the rules, like everyone else.

I guess there's no one in Maine who's poor or homeless or sick or unemployed who could use the money, so they're collecting it to take away civil rights from gay and lesbians instead.

Sing it, Gabriel. If these hypocritical a-holes get to have such a disproportionate say in public policy, the LEAST they can do is pay the F**KING price of admission like everybody else!
