    ...with the intent of trashing Democrats.

    I'm telling you that the policy you propose, even if it were a good idea on every other level (which it isn't), would have the effect of harming one of the Democratic Party's most loyal constituencies, and would be seen as a slap in the face to religious Americans by many Christian Democrats, myself included.

    Mark my words: If your position ever became the position of the Democratic Party, the Party would be politically irrelevant within days. I know that I personally would never vote for anyone who supports your position.

      Mark my words: If your position ever became the position of the Democratic Party,
      Rest assured it never will.  I do remain firm in my contention that religion does a hell of a lot more harm than good, and that government shouldn't be supporting it.

      1) Eliminate the Faith-based and Neighborhood Coalition and return to the policies of the Clinton administration
      2) Require all corporations, including the Rove and Koch SuperPACs to make full financial disclosure.
      If any non-profit or religion wants to accept the civil benefits afforded to corporations, then they assume the civil duties of a corporation. If any non-profit or religion doesn't want the protections of a civil corporation, then they shouldn't incorporate.

    •  I agree. (0+ / 0-)

      Completely politically untenable.
