Democrats? Bad Christians — but we knew that, right?

From a news station in — where else? — the American south.

“East Waynesville Baptist asked nine members to leave. Now 40 more have left the church in protest. Former members say Pastor Chan Chandler gave them the ultimatum, saying if they didn’t support George Bush, they should resign or repent. The minister declined an interview with News 13. But he did say ‘the actions were not politically motivated.’ There are questions about whether the bi-laws were followed when the members were thrown out.”

Whoa… are they done attacking us? Are they turning on each other? So soon?
