The IRS received a complaint about Pastor Wayne Williams endorsing Gordon Howie from the (gasp, sonofaBITCH, slam your fist through the sheetrock) pulpit.
On May 16, Williams encouraged his congregation to cast their votes for state Sen. Gordon Howie in his failed bid for South Dakota's governor seat. Williams says his church doesn't claim any tax exemptions, so he can say any goddam thing he wants to say.
By gosh, I think he's right. But I'd say he was right even if his church was a 501-See-Three-Pee-Oh and a Bee-Bop-A-Ree-Bop Rhubarb Pie. Where on earth is there a better place to endorse fools than in a temple devoted to mythology?
The mere suggestion that government should be able to massage the message from a place where people go try to assure their eternal comfort is dagger-brandishing, sofa-flogging, raping-Rasputin crazy. The idea that any pastors buy into it is just plain depressing.
