Biden Should Withhold What's Most Sacred to Rightwing Churches —Money
Thom plus logo Enough is enough. President Biden must reverse Trump's executive order and direct the IRS to enforce the so-called "Johnson Amendment.”

A group of rightwing American Catholic bishops are trying to withhold one of that church's most sacred rituals – communion or the Eucharist – from President Joe Biden, a devout Catholic, because he and his political party favor a woman having the right to choose abortion and birth control.

Biden, for his part, should withhold from them what many of them (and the Catholic Church for centuries) appear to hold most sacred: money. Specifically, the massive, multi-billion-dollar annual subsidies American taxpayers provide rightwing churches every year via their tax-exempt status, which forces you and me to pay for everything from their land to their police and fire services to the roads people use to attend their services where they're preaching politics instead of Jesus.

How Far Will the GOP Go To Steal the 2022 Election?
Thom plus logo The Congressional switchboard is 202-224-3121. Americans who care about the fate and future of our republic damn well better get active now.

How far will the GOP go to steal the 2022 election?

The corrupt Republican Party, a wholly-owned division of corporate and billionaire America, has dropped all pretense of having any governing ideas that will help or improve America.

Instead, they've gone all-outrage, all-the-time and believe that getting white people all cranked up about America's racial history will provide a veneer of "issues” while they work hard in the background to rig and then steal elections.

This is not new for the GOP.
