    Would be better to just get rid of tax-exempt status for churches all together.

    The words separation,church, state are found nowhere in the US Constitution. I wonder if Barry Lynn would apply the same rules to government forcing church affiliated organizations to distribute abortion pills.

    Rev. Lynn has a point. I'm a taxpayer and don't want to subsidize this church's political views. That simple.

    I can't believe you'd go to this much trouble to crucify this preacher when you said nothing 4 years ago when Rev. Wright preached "God Damn America" and that was Obama's pastor and his church that believes whites are the enemy. Where were you then????

    I believe the minister should file a complaint on Pastr. Worley. Pastr. Worley should never have said the hateful things against gays and lesbians. He should not get the tax exemptions.

    This is one of the most unbelievable stories to watch in 2012. How about the idea of not giving any coverage to hate speakers? Or let's see how many adulterers they have stoned to death in the last few years, if we are seeking some kind of biblical support for their viewpoint? This kind of story gives the world the idea that; this is what most Americans think, this is the way Americans speak ," I'm Agin' It!", and this is way American's are. Note to world, these people do not represent most Americans.
