The IRS is accusing a church of violating its tax-exempt status for engaging in political activities.
Read the next line only if you are sitting down. They are making the accusation because of an appearance by a Democratic candidate. Yes, you heard me right:
“The IRS has notified a Liberty City church that it is under investigation for possibly engaging in political activity — putting its tax-exempt status into question.
The probe is related to an appearance last October by Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry and several black leaders, including U.S. Rep. Kendrick Meek of Miami, the Rev. Al Sharpton and the Rev. Jesse Jackson.”
The agencies of the government are being used to enforce a one-party state. Churches and religious leaders publicly support the Republican Party with impunity. Catholic Bishops and Southern Baptists tell their flocks it is a sin to vote for Democrats, but this is allowed.
And just to drive the point home, the government investigates a church because it allowed a Democrat to speak.
The IRS is also investigating the NAACP for political activity. Not the Heritage Foundation, Cato, American Enterprise Institute, or any of the 500 other organizations in the “conservative movement” network, financed to the tune of $400 million a year, that are the core of the Republican Party. Nope, not them.
Next it will be jobs. If you are a Democrat you don’t get hired, don’t get promoted, etc…
