    Example: Churches were the backbone of the Civil Rights movement, and they couldn't have done it without straying into politics.  The inevitable loss of donations that would result would have bankrupted some of them, and without them who knows where the movement would be today?

    I'm not a church goer or supporter, but I give them the credit they're due.  Some of them -- maybe a lot of them -- are operated by charlatans and frauds fleecing the flock for personal gain and/or glory.  But an awful lot of them don't.  Throwing the baby out with the bathwater is usually unwise.

    I'll believe corporations are people when one comes home from Afghanistan in a body bag.

      I'm against State Churches, State religions, & State Mosques on whichever continent.  Members assume rights for themselves; non-members suffer discrimination.  IMHO & in my experience.

      The Republicans are defunding, not defending, America.
