Preacher Who Kicked out Dems. Quits

Damn, I wanted him to lose his tax-exempt status. But, now, we'll hear how he was forced out by the liberals or something like that. Poor guy, if only the GOP theocracy was in complete control already.

No, instead, the North Carolina preacher, who kicked out members of his flock who didn't vote for Bush, quit today, according to the Associated Press:

A Baptist preacher who was accused of forcing nine members to leave his church because they refused to support President Bush said on Tuesday that he was stepping down.

"For me to remain now would only cause more hurt for me and my family," the preacher, the Rev. Chan Chandler, said as he left a meeting at East Waynesville Baptist Church.

Congregants of the 100-member church have said that Mr. Chandler endorsed Mr. Bush from the pulpit during last year's presidential campaign and said that anyone who planned to vote for the Democratic nominee, Senator John Kerry of Massachusetts, needed to "repent or resign."
See, in his whacko world, those pesky rules really shouldn't apply to Reverend Chandler because he opposes abortion. He'll become some kind of martyr for the radical right wing nuts. We'll hear that if the Senate could just end the filibuster, Chandler would have nothing to worry about. He'd still have his job and those pagan Democrats would be gone.

Chandler will probably be the poster boy for the nuclear option, because it's the evil filibuster that stands in the way of the theocracy. And, in the GOP theocracy, all politics will be religion and all religion will be politics.
