    to mention"? We get it. You're not supposed to mention specific names.  No one is disputing what the tax law is. Sometimes it's observed to the letter, sometimes not. But that technicality becomes essentially meaningless. The point of my original comment was that there was a time when Southern Baptists didn't care for politics to be served up with the Sunday sermon. There was an expectation of a separation between politics and religion. That was before the arch-conservatives took over the Southern Baptist Convention. A little-known fact about Baptist history, as they are commonly lumped in with the rest of the "Religious Right."
