IISD #18: Taxing Salvation?

IISD Admin Lunchroom Chatter #18
Nosher #1:    It is really getting fierce in the political trenches for this school board election.  And sadly, the hypocrisy of some individuals, who you think would know better, just reeks.  And these individuals actually prance around town wearing their religion on their sleeves.
Nosher #2:  I know what you mean.  I have even heard candidate’s chief supporters spreading untruths and rumors that just make no sense.  Instead of the incumbent or a former board member attempting to run their campaigns on their current or past records, they and their minions are content with fabricating falsehoods and engaging in nonsensical issues.  
Nosher #1:  Hopefully, voters will see through this tragic fog of misinformation and bogus accusations.  If there is ever going to be change in the district, then Larry Stipes and Norma Gonzales should be elected.
Nosher #2:  Yes, I agree!  Do you know if we have any IRS agents on our membership rolls?  If so, I wonder if they were thinking how we could maintain our tax exempt status when the line separating church and state is crossed from the pulpit?  After all, I really don’t enjoy going to a Sunday service only to find out that I was attending a school board political rally!
Nosher #1:  Maybe some of our other members could drop a hint that someone needs to take a ‘sabbatical’ from politicking from the pulpit and get back to preaching about the road to salvation.  Otherwise, we should just invite the Rev. Jesse and Al to come and make all Irving school board endorsements "pulpit" official...similar to what they do with their respective congregations regarding national campaigns.  
A note from counsel: These “candid” lunchroom conversations have been injected with fabricated nouns, verbs, adjectives, conjunctions, adverbs, modifiers and maybe a few dangling participles.  Mark Holbrook
