I was doing a little internet surfing and came across an article in the N.Y Times about complaints about churches being political:
The group argues that the churches may be violating prohibitions on political activities by charities and other tax-exempt organizations and has asked the I.R.S. to audit their political activities.
It is official, big brother is here. And for the record, there is nothing in the Constitution of the United States about separation of church and state, just that Congress will make no law concerning the establishment of a religion:
Article the third [Amendment I]
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Under this amendment we have a right to assemble and the government does not have the right to interfere, but that is what they are doing. The IRS should not have the right to judge what is right to say from any church pulpit. If you don’t like it, join another church. If you want your rights suppressed, there are many countries you can go to, don’t let the door hit your backside on the way out.
