Quite honestly, me being a christian find this sign to be extremely offensive. I do not see how this self-proclaimed christian church can excuse this behavior. The sign should come down. Just because we are christians, does not give us the right to bring people down and/or judge them people by their names, when we know nothing about them. God have mercy on them and shame on them for stooping to this level.

I have emailed the IRS to notify them that this church might be overstepping its bounds and violating its tax-exempt status. I sincerely hope they are investigated.

It is a sad state of affairs when a church who holds itself to Christian principles -- being their brother's keeper, not bearing false witness against your neighbor -- engages in this sort of smear. Thanks for your utter hypocrisy. I'm sure your God will not hold that against you in the pearly gates of heaven.

'First lady bill' just got caught again last night; he was cussing and carrying on about bringing up the "race card" after he thought the mic was off!

Do the delusional "women power" voters really want to put him back in the white house? Do they not remember how our country was humiliated and embarrassed by them? Whether the impeachment was right or wrong; will the country be ready to put him back into the whitehouse? Even if it's just as a "first lady"?

'Bubba' hopes they forget all about his past, so he can resume his cabinet position of "official whale-tail thong inspector"! Heck, he's hoping to do the interviews and hiring of interns for his business partner wife. If he's lucky, he might even get to play secretary again with another cigar!!

..........good times!

I would expect this kind of tactic from a child, not from a grown man, let alone the pastor of a church. And since the congregation unanimously voted to keep it up, let it stay up to show just how ignorance comes across in great numbers. Does the concept of growing up mean anything nowadays? Rhetorical question.

This is totally outrageous! How can anyone say they are a Christian and then judge anyone else...You should all be ashamed of yourself. You need to ask " what would Jesus do?"

Ignorance and religion is a very dangerous combination. There should be a minimum IQ requirement for these bible humpers before they can profess to be "pastors." This guy must have poking the choir boys when the fuss over "reverend" bubba wright erupted

Good call to have the internal revenue service look into this. There is supposed to be a separation of church and state. Using the church to show political psoters going against that. The jpastor saying that isn't a political sttekment shows hes also a liar isn't that against the ten commandments.

I agree with Ana from Nye, Mt! Church and State are supposed to be separate and should not be allowed to benefit from being tax exempt and still be able to jump in the political arena. As for the rest of you, are you saying that his grandparents who raised him were Muslims?

I agree with Ana from Nye, MT, when was the last time this so called christian read his Bible? He and his congregation are throwing stones at a person he does not even know! What happened to church and state being separate. As for the rest who are also throwing stones, did any of you get a good look at pictures of his grandparents who raised him. Do they look like muslims to you?

Her Pedestal, NY (AP)- Presumptive President-elect-to-be Hillary Clinton Wednesday railed against Christians like fallen candidate Barack Obama for following a person like Jesus Christ who repeatedly failed to rebuke sinners. "If I've learned anything from my years of experience it is to distance yourself from anyone known to have ever done anything wrong or else it will only rub off on you and is then fair game to be used against you. Failure to do so shows a lack of Political intelligence," she said. "It goes against everything I stand for."
