Now they decide to do something about this?
Every time an evangelical church gets involved in "politics" the ACLU starts screaming about separation of church and state. Yet that does not stop Democrats from campaigning from the pulpit. This week, the Washington Times reports that the IRS finds this kind of activity "disturbing". Oh NOW they say that....
"We want to stop improper activity during -- not after -- the election cycle," said IRS Commissioner Mark W. Everson. "Now is the time to act, before it is too late" to prevent churches and charities from becoming deeply embroiled in politics and the fundraising process.
The article goes on to talk about the over 100 complaints that were filed with the agency. Here is a hot tip for the IRS...don't wait for complaints to be filed. When there is a news story about any candidate campaigning from the pulpit, consider that to be the complaint! We should not have to file a formal complaint for the IRS to do it's job.
Here's the deal...if the left does not want the "religious right" to campaign in their places of worship, they should not be inviting candidates to be campaigning from their pulpits. The law works both ways and we need to make sure that the law is enforced both ways!
