I wonder what the tax exempt status is of this Church? Hmmmm...using a church to push a political agenda, eh? I bet the IRS would like to know what that Church is doing. And since when does the ACLU use churches to push their Communist agendas?

Is that a threat?

Shockingly........Braden has a rant about the ACLU Town Hall meeting at a Unitarian Church on his Star Trek Hate Site.
Does his short bus mind really think he's fooling anyone?

Oh, and Braden stating the I think you have no friends is not a threat. It's a reality based observation.

Goodnight crazy loon!
