They got a divorce. They are no longer under the same roof, church or otherwise. They realized one spotlight wasn’t big enough for both of their egosTHEM, them is what I meant to say. They both have more plastic on their face than in their wallets. They still share the same last name (Hey, Vickie Winans has a career from using a former surname).

And now, they are both publicly backing a presidential candidate as seen in OneNewsNow.com. How sweet, still united after all these years.

Are you kidding me?

According to Federal Election Commission records, Paula White gave Obama’s campaign $2,300, while her husband donated $2,000 to Obama’s White House bid.

I guess not. Well, that’s nice. While you have a church that prides itself on being racially diverse, politically diverse is out the window, huh? Do you understand the great responsibility you have when you took the job as “pastor.”

You are to direct people in the ways of the Lord and endorse the Bible. If you fancy politics, join a freakin’ school board and get involved in your community. If you Democrat or Republican, so what. If you are either in the face of your church, shame on you.

The only issues you should be publicly advocate is what God says about anything. Get your church to vote, sure. But for whom? Who cares. That is your opinion, and the Bible should not be subject to what you opine. Pray for direction you two… for your way to the ballot box, that is. Otherwise you could be pummeled black and blue. Or at least you should be.

    Don, you bring up a good point. Even if they had a telethon for the candidate of their choice, would you trust their decision was sound… or just that the president-in-waiting was just going to give him or her a cushy Cabinet gig?

    Nice.
