ezs note:  Y'know, the Evangelical Church of the West Indies has every right to hold this position.   
I may disagree, but they do have this right.  However, what about the liberal churches, 
temples, or mosques?  What about the individuals who belong to no church?  It is my firm belief that governments belong to PEOPLE, not churches!
