I was watching conservative activist and former Republican candidate for governor Eric Miller pick off Republican lawmakers on their way to a House caucus this afternoon when I remembered that Miller made noises about challenging Mitch Daniels again in 2008 shortly after losing the GOP primary in 2004.

"For what?" he answered. "Governor in 2008," I said.
Miller came back with a simple and direct, "No," then he reached out to grab another lawmaker.

Bill would interfere with the right of a church or pastor to inform people in the church about important issues like abortion, homosexual marriages, crime and gambling. If the pastor speaks out in the community on these or other Biblical issues, the church would be required to be registered with the state as a Public Advocacy Organization.
The church would be required to provide confidential information to the state about those who contribute to the church, along with every date the pastor mentioned a Biblical issue affecting the community or state. The government should not interfere with the right of the pastor and the church to speak out on Biblical issues!
The bill would also impact other organizations including a Crisis Pregnancy Center, Christian school, rescue mission, business or company that speaks out on an issue.
