Video: Iraqi Christians protesting in front of the White House.
This is just unbelievable. While the “religious cleansing” of Christians continues unabated in Iraq and Syria, with nary a word from the administration in condemnation of it, Obama’s IRS doubles-down in pure Alinsky-esque fashion by colluding with an atheist group, Freedom from Religion Foundation (FRFF), to “investigate [the] political activity of churches.”
Via TPNN, my emphasis:
The Obama IRS is teaming up with an atheist legal group, the Freedom from Religion Foundation (FRFF), to monitor and investigate political activity of churches. The two groups entered into an agreement as a settlement to a 2012 lawsuit, FRFF vs. Koskinen.
According to Christianity Today, in the suite, FRFF “alleged that the IRS failed to have a policy in place for investigating political activity at tax-exempt churches and religious organizations, nor did the agency enforce its 501(c)(3) codes against electioneering.” At the heart of the atheists complaint and demand for investigations and sanctions is ‘Pulpit Freedom Sunday,’ an event organized by the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF). On this day, which is set to occur next on October 5, pastors endorse political candidates from the pulpit. In 2008, 1600 churches participated in the event.
In a press release, FFRF co-president Annie Laurie Gaylor said, “This is a victory, and we’re pleased with this development in which the IRS has proved to our satisfaction that it now has in place a protocol to enforce its own anti-electioneering provisions.
Well, the White House and FRFF might want to check the Constitution a little bit closer, whereby they will discover we have freedom of religion, not freedom from religion, codified in the First Amendment: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof … .”
