Throwing Stones

Preacher throws Democrats out of his church, (video here):
The minister of a Haywood County, North Carolina Baptist church is tellingmembers of his congregation that if they're Democrats, they either need to find another place of worship or support President Bush.

Already, the Reverend Chan Chandler has ex-communicated nine members of East Waynesville Baptist Church. Another 40 members have left in protest... church members were upset because he named people, and he says he'll do it again because he has to according to the word of God.

Chandler...says his actions weren't politically motivated. One former church member says Chandler told some of the members that if they didn't support George Bush, they needed to resign their positions and get out of the church, or go to the altar, repent and agree to vote for Bush.
The Bible said vote Republican? I didn't know that.

I do know the Bible said adultery is a sin. Would the good reverend name names, ask them to publicly repent or be kicked out, too?

Otherwise, I'd imagine the IRS would want to watch the church's tax exampt status closely, don't you think?
