Imagine The Outrage If Attn Gen John Ashcroft Talked To White Evangelical Preachers About Election Law...

Imagine, had George W. Bush's first attorney general, John Ashcroft, had talked election law with white evangelical preachers in an election year, the cries of "separation of church and state" and "RAAAAACISM!" would be never ending not just in the Democrat lapdog media, but in the halls of Congress.

Just like the outrage when Attorney General Eric Holder talked to black ministers on election law (Human Events).

Attorney General Eric Holder is much too busy to respond to that mountain of “Operation Fast and Furious” subpoenas he’s been dodging. For that matter, as he tried to explain to Congress during hearings into that murderous outrage, he’s too busy to read everything that gets dumped into his in-box.

He hasn’t found time to meet with the family of slain Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, killed by a border-hopping gang equipped with guns from the Obama Administration’s inter-agency gun-running program. He attended no memorials for Agent Terry. He couldn’t even make time to apologize for Terry’s death, until catching intense heat for his refusal to do so during one of his unhappy subcommittee appearances, almost a year after the murder. No grass grows beneath his shoes!

What Eric Holder does have time for is teaching groups of black pastors how to stay on the right side of election law and preserve their tax-exempt status while they’re assisting the Obama re-election campaign. As reported by the Washington Examiner:

"We will have representatives from nine denominations who actually pastor somewhere in the neighborhood of about 10 million people, and we're going to first of all equip them with the information they need to know about what they can say and what they cannot say in the church that would violate their 501c3 status with the IRS," Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, D-Mo., told MSNBC today.

"In fact, we're going to have the IRS administrator there, we're going to have the Attorney General Eric Holder there, we're going to have the lawyers' organization from around the country, the ACLU -- all giving ministers guidance about what they can and cannot do," he noted.

Cleaver said they would not tell pastors which candidate to support. They will let them know who to regard as the bad guys, though (hint: not Democrats). "We're going to talk about some of the draconian laws that have cropped up around the country as a result of the 17 percent increase in African American votes," Cleaver said, describing voter ID laws as a form of Jim Crow-style "poll tax" on seniors and black voters.

The CBC chairman is confident that "President Obama is going to get 95 percent of the [African American] vote," and wants to keep that turnout high. "We want to let them know that there is a theological responsibility to participate in the political process, at least in the Judeo-Christian tradition," he said.

Theological responsibility? You mean to re-elect the same failed president whom liberals talk about as if he were the Second Coming of the Messiah?

And yes, you did not hear any outrage because there was none coming from the media or the usual "separation of church and state" suspects. Why not?
