I'd just like to thank the Texas 22nd for giving me a perfect example of a tax code violation to use in my civil liberties lectures. Tom DeLay may be out of the picture, but it seems there's still plenty of crazy to go around. Or at least people who don't understand the 1st Amendment.

This whole thing could be solved by just granting Jesus U.S. citizenship. Then the church, being the "body of Christ," would technically be granted the first amendment the same as any other person.

David, are you implying that Jesus isn't already an American?

It gets worse, TIA. Not only is Jesus not an American, we're talking about a middle eastern here. If seen on an airplane half of the other passengers might be afraid of an impending hijacking.
