Pastor: I wanted to slap her | Local News - KCCI Home

Politics and religion have collided at a Burlington church after a pamphlet encouraging people to vote to remove an Iowa Supreme Court justice surfaced at a Sunday service.

A woman who attended the City Church service on Sept. 30 told the pastor it was illegal for the church to display the pamphlets.

The Internal Revenue Service could revoke a church’s nonprofit status for promoting candidates or ballot issues.

The incident has been reported to the IRS, which declined to comment.

Pastor Steve Youngblood says the woman’s rebelliousness isn’t proper Christian behavior. In a sermon Oct. 7, he acknowledged wanting to slap her.

Justice David Wiggins faces a retention vote Nov. 6. Social conservative groups have sought his ouster because he joined in a unanimous 2009 decision legalizing gay marriage.


"Yea, I say unto thee: When the women become disagreeable, it’s time to slap a trollop," said Jesus Christ never.

I’m just sayin’. And it’s about damn time to report this bullshit. You wanna be political, pay taxes. Render unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s. Otherwise, stick to the business of pushing your brand of all-knowing, invisible sky-dad.
