The MSM, as usual, misreports the North Carolina 'excommunication' story

The political world is all atwitter over the North Carolina Baptist pastor who allegedly forced the excommunication of Democratic members of his congregation. As it turns out, the incriminating sermon was not about party affiliation, it was about living what you profess to believe. As a very pointed example, the pastor asked how anybody who professed to oppose abortion could vote for John Kerry (as well as for certain Republican politicians — bet you hadn't heard that).

There was nothing controversial or unreasonable about the pastor's remarks, understood in context, apart from the fact that (as the essayist linked above notes) it was poor form for him to name names.
