Sounds like it's time for the 'Baptist Ministers Conference of Hudson County' to start paying taxes for their churches
A local group calling itself 'Baptist Ministers Conference of Hudson County' is endorsing state assemblyman L. Harvey Smith for Jersey City Mayor in the election next year. We here at Jersey City Desk do not offer endorsements but think a CHURCH group or CHURCH RELATED group should keep their mouths shut on such topics unless they are ready to start filling the Jersey City coffers with their tax monies. There is a separation of church and state in this country. This group and the churches they represent are breaking this separation. The day the Monumental Baptist Church or any of the churches represented under the banner of the 'Baptist Ministers Conference of Hudson County' want to step up too the plate and pay their taxes to politick from the pulpit or their pulpit via the media, residents of Jersey City or anywhere else this kind of thing goes on should turn a deaf ear to this egregious behavior. Going forward, ignore them, this goes for any religious front group endorsing political candidates.
