The pastors are challenging an IRS ban on endorsing candidates from the pulpit, which is based on rules that forbid nonprofits from taking part in political campaigns. Preachers say the ban violates their rights to free speech and freedom of religion.
“I don’t want anyone censoring what I say in the pulpit,” said the Rev. Henry Coles of World of Faith Christian Center in Nashville, with a congregation of about 400.
To prohibit a preacher from teaching the Word of God is definitely a violation of the 1st Amendment. If candidates running for any office violates that Word, then all pastors should be able to inform their congregations. (Read up on The Black Robe Regiment)
Clergy should think twice before breaking the law, said Barry Lynn, executive director of Americans United for Separation of Church and State.
This bozo should do a bit of homework. There is no such thing as the ‘separation of church and state’. The 1st Amendment prohibits a state run religion, as they had in England, that people were forced to be a part of.
“Americans attend church for spiritual guidance, not to get a list of candidates to vote for on Election Day,” Lynn said in a statement.
Spiritual guidance also includes knowledge. But I guess this guy wouldn’t know anything about that.
The ban on nonprofit political endorsements dates to the 1950s. Lyndon B. Johnson was mad at nonprofits that opposed his re-election, so “he rammed these rules through to punish his opponents,” said Richard Hammar, editor of Church Law and Tax Report.
As my dad always said, “Johnson was a horse’s ass in law school, and he’s still a horse’s ass!” Ya see, my dad knew him, so he could say it. Such rules violates the 1st Amendment, and should have been squashed at the time. Unfortunately, liberals and their commie (but I repeat myself) friends have taken such ‘rules’, and have done their best to remove God from every aspect of American life. You can see the results of their efforts every night on the news.
The only way we, as a nation, will prosper, is when we turn our faces BACK to God. Our decline began when we allowed the few to strip away our rights as a faithful nation.
1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
4 The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.
5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
6 For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.
