Okay, granted, the Obamas didn’t exactly spend the 20 years prior to O’s ascendancy to the throne in a normal church environment, what with Jeremiah “God Damn America” Wright spewing hatred every Sunday, so perhaps Mishy deserves a break when it comes to church “etiquette,” right? Hell no.

Anyway, it appears that Mishy might want to brush up on that whole tax-exempt-status thing before she speechifies to parishioners again. In a (campaign) speech last week before the African Methodist Episcopal Church’s general conference in Nashville, Mooch told the crowd that there was “no place better” than church to discuss politics:

“To anyone who says that church is no place to talk about these issues, you tell them there is no place better – no place better.”

Um, Mooch? Actually that “anyone” is the Internal Revenue Service. You see, not only can the IRS impose fines and immediate taxes on a church that supports a political a candidate (like the hubby, for example), or a church that opposes a candidate (like Mitt Romney, for example), it can also revoke that church’s tax-exempt status. Yeah, I know – bummer.

Perhaps in an effort to couch her admonition in more churchy terms, Mooch tried to amplify her comment:

“Because ultimately, these are not just political issues; they are moral issues. They’re issues that have to do with human dignity and human potential.”

Translation: “Hell yes these are political issues, who am I trying to kid? I’m using the same code words Barack uses on the campaign stump!”

At any rate, maybe we should give Mooch some slack – and try to understand her confusion; she was also in Nashville in April when she told a similar crowd:

“This president has brought us out of the dark and into the light.”

Mooch obviously has a hard time distinguishing the O-man from Jesus Christ. That must make Jesus feel pretty good about himself.

In a related observation, don’t you just love how the Obamas get all churchy during election campaigns?


O and Mooch; gonna miss ’em.

  1. IRS…get after this and I’ll tithe above what is Caesar’s. To the Lord’s kingdom of course.

      • While waiting to see…I held my breathe two minutes…spun around on one foot with my arms out…then bent over and touched my head on the ground…like we did in grammer school in early ’50s before drugs… oops what’s happened now as I just woke up? You say IRS ain’t acted yet. :) Will keep watching and reading here with the Rat. Obviously I have high expectations!!!

  2. Hey Rat have ya heard there is a little thing called Freedom Of Speech (you seem to not only use it, but abuse it often) and it is a-OK for folks to talk about morals in church. Yep, it is actually the place to preach about morals and if you think that a morals issue only pertains to one of the folks running for President then I would have to say I am pretty sure you are mistaken! Now as far as the IRS is concerned an official religious organizaition such as Catholic, Baptist, Methodist, Muslim, etc. can not officially back, financially support, or coerce their members to suppoirt one candidate over the other or it could jeopardize or even lose it’s Not-For-Profit status. But an individual minister or church member may speak about or open a discussion about politics in general, one or all persons running for a political office, with the congrents, or with an individual attendee without jeopardizing the churches Not-For-Profit status.

    • Hey, Creta, have you heard there is a little thing called misinformed? Freedom of speech and the endorsement of a candidate by a church are two different enchiladas. (The first being protected by the Constitution, the second being punished by the IRS.)

      If you truly believe that Mooch wasn’t suggesting that the crowd go back to their respective churches and gin up support for the O-man, then you are even more naive than your comment would suggest.
