Try not to swoon (or fall asleep from boredom) as you watch this clip from the Messiah Most Miserable. He's pitching for campaign volunteers. He assures all that his "campaign is powered by folks at every level, taking ownership where it matters most: around the kitchen table, in barber shops and beauty salons, in your faith community..." Whoa! Stop the presses! Faith community? (At the 1:08-1:09 marks) Now what was all that high-falootin' talk of keeping politics out of churches, as they so often chide the Catholics to do? And yes! At the 1:30 mark, he suggests being a "congregation captain"! Hmmm! Click here if you cannot see embedded video.
As Dr Nadal says on his post, there can be no more straight-faced objections to Catholics and other conservative-oriented groups organizing, publishing voting guides, etc in their places of worship. Certainly in Maryland there can be no legitimate objections to collecting signatures for the gay marriage referendum effort on our church grounds.
