There is good news! Yesterday USA Today printed an article about the increased number of conservatives in Congress in an article entitled Conservatives welcome 'new day'. Part of the new agenda of the conservatives concerns clergy and politics. According to USA Today, "Rep. Walter Jones, R-N.C., will reintroduce a bill that would make it legal for churches to participate in political campaigns without losing tax-exempt status. It's not clear whether Bush will weigh in on the issue." This law by Rep. Jones would undo the 501-c-3 imposed by Lyndon Johnson 50 years ago in a successful attempt to silence his Texas foes. I believe that preachers deserve total freedom of speech. At any rate, the current law is unenforceable because the USA is blessed with tens of thousands of churches, and the government can't check them all. In this case, I agree with The Happy Warrior, Al Smith, 1928 Democrat candidate for President, who said then that the only cure for the ills of democracy is more democracy. Gov. Smith is right.
