The Ministry of Truth

Two FBI agents question an Illinois pastor, Randy Steele of Mount Vernon's Southwest Christian Church, about several sermons he preached on abortion and homosexuality. An anonymous tip claimed the pastor was encouraging violence. The pastor says the agents told him they were satisfied he was not encouraging violence, but the FBI, according to TheSouthern.com, refuse to even acknowledge they questioned the pastor.

Eerie, isn't it.

Bush nominates the unqualified Liberal, Gonzalez and the next thing you know he's sending the FBI out on intimidation missions!

Let me get this straight: your complaint is that the FBI is obliged to check out reports that someone is advocating violence?

The FBI got a tip that he was advocating violence, and they called to check it out.

So....your position, then, is that the FBI should ignore tips that speakers advocate murder. Ok. That's not how I'd think the FBI should operate, but different folks, different strokes.

A. When the tip is about a sermon, a descrete call to the church for a tape of the sermon would answer the question without causing an uproar.

B. When asked about the questioning the FBI should have the courtesy to respond and not act as if they're hiding some big secret.
