Dems kicked out of NC church

"For those that thought that there has not been a full scale war lanched against liberals; for those who didn't take the radical right's promise to "eradicate liberals" seriously, I present to you, Exhibit A: East Waynesville Baptist Church has just kicked out all its Democratic members," writes Georgia 10 (video here). The newscast reports that the minister, who refused to be interviewed, doesn't consider his actions "political." (he said as he clutched his tax-free status to his breast). Perfect time to get acquainted with the Church Sign Generator (hat tip: Jake). (DailyKos)
