The argument of gay marriage is now not a biblical issue, and as it pertains to the churches. It is a political issue.
Churches that have become politically active should be held to lose their tax exempt status. What they have done is a perversion which suits their own interests.
This seems, in all honesty, to be little more then a shell game in donations and forming capital to advance other political interests.
Many people seem content to label the political process as a free-for-all and that religious donations do not play a part. That is something which should not be ignored.
As a Baptist I have come to witness that the church has become much too involved in our personal lives. The issues of the bedroom, who to vote for, and what we should or should not watch is none of the church's business.
I cannot agree with the profiting and shell games of a church bent more on control and less on biblical teachings.
What happens to the money, who pockets the interest, and who benefits after the church raises millions of dollars for the outside interests of the "conservative" values party?
