Pastor claims God endorses McCain. IRS to investigate.

Hi everyone,

Right right right they go.

Wis. pastor shares his plan to vote for McCain -- chicagotribune.com
Emrich told his congregation at New Life Church on Sunday that he supports McCain's anti-abortion platform. The 38-year-old pastor claims he's not endorsing either candidate but he did note that he has a sign on his lawn supporting McCain.
So, let's see if I have this right: a 38 year old prophet in West Bend has worked out that God wants a Republican in the White House because the Republicans support a spun version of an Old Testament's commandment even though they ignore the updated version ("love your neighbor as yourself") by denying any support for children once they're born?

I wonder if they've also rewritten that whole section about Jesus throwing the money lenders out of the Temple? I suspect the neo-con Bibles must have a version where Christ invites them into the Temple, caters lunch, and then bails them out when they make bad loans.

If it keeps going like this, I won't be able to muster a lick of irony.

Only in West Bend. Seriously, this 'city' cracks me up. F

Ah West Bend... Well, it isn't everyone, that's for sure, but there are cockroaches out there. Have you seen my hate mail in the Daily News?

A person can say the dullest things here and still draw opprobrium.

To think that West Bend actually appears to have gone downhill the last 30 years (I moved out in 1978, though I still visit friends on occasion).
