"All he did was circulate recall petitions, the bishop says. Two federal courts and the state attorney general have sided with him. But the former mayor and a local judge appear out for blood to the tune of $475,000 straight from the pocket of Bishop Tom Brown. "This is the most unjust action that has ever taken place against any church in the United States of America," Brown says. He leads Word of Life Church in El Paso, Texas." –Source
What this pastor and all the unknowing people that may eventually send him the $475,000 he needs is, it's all HIS FAULT! This is not a free speech situation at all and so I see no reason to post it as such. If this pastor, like all the other pastors that signed unto the 501c3 trap that was prophesied thousands of years ago would have read the contract they were signing, he would know it's written right into it that once he signed that contract he can no longer speak politically from his pulpit. And so now he's in hot water after getting caught telling his people in the church to recall the Mayor. And he deserves to be in trouble because he reneged on the contract. But for some odd reason he is saying this is all an unjust action of the city and State? How's that possible when he agreed to stop preaching on politics?
It's the prophesied preachers of filthy lucre like this pastor all over this country that have caused Christianity to fall to such decadent levels. These preachers of ear tickling sermons designed to sell a product that fills their pockets with untold riches. And according to T.D. Jakes, "Jesus is the product" they are selling. I have no doubt that this 'Bishop' never even bothered to read the 501c3 contract before signing because if he did, he might not have done so. But it appears he only read the area wherein it stated he could get land, homes, cars and many other items tax free and like all the other pastors, that's all he cared about.
There are two main reasons Lyndon Johnson set up the 501c3 back in 1954 that later became law in 2007 after 90% of the pastors signed onto it during its 53 year berthing process. #1, it prevents the pastors from speaking about political corruption from their pulpits so as to have a sway over the election process. And the truth is, Johnson and his dying god Satan knew full well that political corruption was going to be off the charts in a few decades and such corruption would compel many pastors to speak out and so, they dangled the golden carrot promising riches and these pastors swallowed it whole.
#2, In its design it can be used to prevent political commentary on the pulpit which can be very beneficial to the Vatican's long prophesied agenda. Gagging the preachers on one end wherein they cannot speak out on political corruption is a positive thing for Rome yes. But to prevent them from speaking spiritually is twofold 'blessing' for the man of sin. What I mean is, if ever the preachers wake up to see the Pope is evil, some will be moved to speak out on his doctrinal insanity, and when they do the government can swoop down claiming a breach of contract. Yes, the preachers can say it's not political because it's a spiritual matter regarding doctrine, but the much stronger arm of the law will declare with the power of the pen that yes that may be true but the Pope is also the head of State in Vatican city and therefore a political entity and so protected under the 501c3 contract. And yes, some may try to legally argue that assumption away in a courtroom, but as the preachers in Canada recently discovered, stepping into a legal back and forth with lawyers who have unlimited time and resources will cripple your ministry physically and financially. So even if the argument can be seen as valid and winnable, most if not all would never bother as it would take far too much time and finances to fight it.
Now do you see why I refuse to get the 501c3? Besides the fact getting one forces you to join your church or ministry with the State thereby creating an image to the Church and State structure of the beast in Rome, it also makes it difficult to preach about Antichrist because most of your money and time will be spent defending such speech in courtrooms.
In any event, as I said at the start, this pastor is not being very honest when he claims this is a free speech matter. #1, he signed a contract with his very own hand that if he read it or not, it literally gags him from political posturing and so it's not a free speech matter at all. He agreed to the gagging for money offered at the start. And #2, even if he didn't read the contract because of all the dollars signs circling his mind like little birdies in a cartoon victim's head that just received a blow to the head, one can rest assured that contract was openly shared and read aloud in that courtroom and that is why he lost his case. He signed the contract! No getting around that! That being the basic reality here means, for him to claim it to be a free speech matter is a bold faced lie. But then.. these are the last days and he is one with many other wolves that clamored after the prize and so they will do what they can to defend their actions. What I pray happens next is that the people in the pews finally discover just how untrustworthy their 501c3 government approved agents of the State claiming to be pastors really are.
