Separation of church and state apparently doesn't apply to black ministers and churches

The left's hypocrisy is exposed once again.

New Jersey Sen. Jon Corzine (news, bio, voting record), a former Wall Street executive with a portfolio worth $261 million, has been giving some of his money to black churches, raising questions about whether it's generosity or politics.

The Democrat, who is in a tight race for governor, donated or loaned more than $2.5 million last year to black churches. He has received the endorsement of more than two dozen black ministers.

Can you imagine if this had been a Republican candidate giving money to churches? He'd have been cooked to a crisp over the coals by now. And the churches and ministers who had endorsed him would be facing charges from the IRS. But for some reason, if you're a Democrat getting endorsements from black ministers, everything is quite alright.
