It is bad enough that many preachers have never even heard of a distinction between the "two kingdoms." Now that election season is upon us, here's a group of tax-crusaders urging preachers to "preach" about politics in open defiance of current IRS policy prohibiting such things. I hate the IRS as much as the next guy, but since I fear God rather than men, I'll preach the law and the gospel, and let God take care of his world, including who becomes the next president of the United States. Never thought I'd side with tax-collectors . . . Click here: Pastors Urged to Preach About Politics, in Hopes of Toppling IRS Ban - America’s Election HQ

I do like it, however, when the Roman church actually disciplines its erring members! I wish the archbishops of New York, Washington DC, and Boston, had the guts to do this with a few politicians named Kennedy, Pelosi, and Guliani.

Dottie Rambo has been killed in a bus crash--the gospel singer, not John Rambo's mother (or girl-friend, or wife, or whatever). Her bus hit a freeway embankment in Missouri, probably due to the recent severe storms. I'm not a fan by any stretch, but we sure sold a lot of her records back in the day when I owned a Christian bookstore. Click here: Gospel Legend Dottie Rambo Dies in Bus Accident
