Spirit One Christian Church in Kansas has gotten in hot water for having a sign in front of the church declaring that Barack Obama is a Muslim. Read about it and the backlash against the church. Video included.
The Spirit One Christian Church in Wichita, Kansas is not unfamiliar with running afoul of political correctness. The church has been investigated in the past for the words they have put up on the sign that stands beside their church building. Now they’ve gone and done it again. The sign in front of the church reads: “America We Have A Muslim President. This Is Sin Against The Lord.”
The Spirit One Christian Church is standing by their statement, even though Obama has been a member of a Christian church for some years. They claim they have the right to free speech under the Constitution. Many of Obama’s followers are claiming their sign is incendiary and violates the separation fo Church and State. Of course, as can be expected, the IRS is being called in to investigate whether or not the church has violated its tax exempt status.
Some people are comparing this to the hate filled rantings of the Phelps church in Topeka, Kansas that protest and celebrate at the funerals of American Soldiers and hold up signs about their hatred of America and all it stands for. The comparison is a huge stretch.
A closer comparison might be between a church that decries the questionable associations and past of the future President and his own home church that stars the Reverend Jeremiah Wright who decries America as evil and calls on God to damn America. No, even that isn’t a good comparison. The Chicago church that Barack Obama and his family were actively involved in for twenty years did much worse that putting up a sign protesting someone.
I personally don’t agree with either of these guys. The thing is that people seem more outraged over what Mark Holick of the Spirit One Christian Church than they are at the outrageous statements that have come out of the Obama’s home church. One is deemed evil while the other is excused. I’m sure the IRS has checked out the tax exempt status of Rev. Wright’s church.
