Um, Jesus does a great many miracles.. and sometimes he chooses not to do so.

Faith is not contingent upon miracles...but believing that He is Lord and Savior. This is the greatest miracle: salvation.

Minister's families and congregants should not lie.
"My husband has a heart condition and with (((((electrocution))))) who knows what could've happened," Maria Moran said, referring to the Taser's electrical shock.
I thought Texas uses lethal injection. Give them all another shot of pepper spray and lazer the preacher again; for all lying.

The family of that officer needs to sue that ignorant pastor and his church! His interference created a potentially dangerous situation for that officer! That moron moran had NO business getting involved no matter who the h e l l he thinks he is! Personally as soon as he stepped in, i think the cop should have shot him as tasering is too easy! Im really getting tired of people that do not want to let the police do their job! He should have gone into his church to read that fairy tale the bible, molest some kids or something!

i wonder how may illegals attend that church?????

Guess I read a different article than the first 6 commentators, but the one I read clearly showed an over-reaction by the cop, not the pastor, who had every right to know what was going on in his church parking lot. And for a cop to taser the pastor and tear gas the congregation, including kids, all over a traffic stop is sheer insanity. Is that the world we want to live in?
Cops used to be called peacekeepers, and some, very few, still carry on that tradition, but most are poorly trained, and bonded only w/ their brotherhood of cops, not the community they work in. They follow orders and perform for each other. The public be damned!

Dear police state, I hear what you're saying but keep this in mind. Evey moron, myself included, knows that when a cop is in the middle of something, don't butt in. How many episodes of COPS do you need to watch until it sinks into your head? The absolute worst thing that the "public" can do is to involve themselves in the investigation. It doesn't matter if it's a parking ticket or a homicide, leave 'em alone and let 'em do their job.

My, what a good little toady you are. As Americans, we have rights, recognized in our Constitution, to question authority, especially when they are on our property. Cops are public employees. They are not independent inforcers entitled to run roughshod over the people they serve. They are not above those they serve and those they must challenge. They are held to a higher standard and tear gassing a congregation of elders and children along w/ tasering their pastor doesn't meet that higher standard.

But we are all being tested now, and many will choose to follow whoever has the guns and the money, whether they're cops or gang leaders, and too few will choose to challenge abuse of authority, again whether it's done by a cop or a gang leader. I've made my choice, you've made yours. What about the rest of you reading this?

.....Q. authority? try to Q. our prez. see what happens.....i dont think it is a given right to interfere with an officer performing his duties......just because someone is in a congregation, or a pastor, it doesnt put them above the law...sorry anarchists

Just wait until they are at your door, or its your daughter, son wife grandmother, or yourself on the other end of the almighty police state for which we live. Show me your papers! Stop so we can search your car? Are you legal? armed? wow sound familiar? Stop at our checkpoint!!! our own little (or mabe larger version) of the Nazis along with the shaved heads or military haircuts that go along with the Nazi philosophy.

The department of homeland security, the new secrete police. Halt show papers pass or be held for further questioning? this is what we got people, cops can get awy with murder, just look at how many go to jail for crimes, like the cop that beat the heck out of the 125 pound bartender, if she had a gun she could have killed the b-tard, but he got off with a slap on the wrist, if any, I mean any of the regular citizenry were to commit such crime we would be locked up for a min of 6 mos. Judge Dread, 1984, we are there and well passed it.
