Another thing from tonight’s meeting of the Buncombe County Commissioners that is bothering me may have been foreshadowed by talk of planting IRS agents in churches to expunge royal sins. During the discussion about identifying parcels for conversion to greenspace, it was mentioned that the now defunct Culture and Recreation Authority had considered partnering with churches for greenspace. It just goes to show that the separation of church and state only matters when it is convenient. Could the churches display crèches or crucifixes on partnered land? Could they have billboards displaying scripture? I envisioned the words of the ministers in the chapels offending LGBT or topless demonstrators outside.
