“I love it. Even if it’s bad attention, bring it on. Come to town, see what it’s about.”
~Resident Damon White
Ray Miller is the pastor of this church in Leakey, TX (Pop. 387); in doing this – he violated the laws of man … no word on how God voted. It is against U.S. law for a place of worship to endorse or campaign for a politician on the church property. Not only is this on the church property; it IS the church property. I am a big believer in the IRS stripping ANY religious business of its tax exempt status once it starts to ride ramshod through the separation of church and state. It is absolutely unacceptable for a pastor or preist or any clergy member to wield the blunt force of a religion of god to benefit a particular party or politician.
KHOU in Houston explains HERE:
That marquee standing outside a non-denominational church has become the talk of the town in Leakey — about 90 miles northwest of San Antonio.
The Church in the Valley is run by Pastor Ray Miller. Miller declined an interview but did say the sign was solely his idea. He said he changes the sign weekly and this isn’t the first bold statement to be displayed.
The pastor said he feels strongly about the upcoming presidential election and feels the message on the marquee speaks for itself.
Since it is a church, it is classified as a non-profit organization. That means, by law, it can not endorse a political candidate.
Some video showing this is not photoshopped … and explaining this in full.
Leakey is in the middle of NOWHERE. It’s 90 miles from nowhere. Unfortunately – the further away from the city … the less informed they usually are. I bet he watches Fox News though.
