Sounds like the folks over at East Waynesville Baptist are now fully committed. According to Radosh (and this link off a WNC TV station), the church tossed some members who refused to toe its political line.

Then a bunch more folks quit in protest.

I remember this church from my cub reporter days at The (Waynesville, NC) Mountaineer, 1990-1992. The thing that strikes me about this is that nine people got run off for not supporting Bush, but 40 people (who apparently do support the President politically) quit the church in protest over the principle of the thing.

That's pretty cool.

Afternote: Here's the link to The (Asheville) Citizen-Times story.
