Former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke and Democrat presidential candidate said that churches and other religious institutions that oppose same-sex marriage should lose their tax-exempt status. It’s obvious by his goal that he does not understand how tax exemption works. Those who get the tax deduction are the people who donate
Churches have been fooled into believing that they are prohibited from discussing politics from the pulpit. For more than 50 years the threat of the IRS revoking a church’s tax-exempt status has been held over churches. Some pastors don’t care because they don’t want to address controversial issues like politics.
This caught my attention. Hilario Yanez who “once praised President Barack Obama for his executive order that protected Yanez and hundreds of thousands of other illegal aliens from deportation, gave them work permits, and allowed them to attend American colleges and universities,” has changed his tune. Yanez recently stated that “Democrat leaders
Since 1954, anti-Christian organizations have relied on an unconstitutional law to keep Christians from speaking on the topic of politics. Pres. Trump has issued an Executive Order to dampen the effects of the 1954 law. His order does not actually nullify the law since it became law by an act
NBC is reporting that Democrat/Socialist “presidential candidate Bernie Sanders left a campaign event in Seattle without giving his speech Saturday after ‘black lives matter’ activists took over the podium.” This isn’t the first time that Black Lives Matter protesters have protested racial inequality by going after so-called Progressive candidates. “On
Most pastors don’t like to cause trouble. They have enough on their plates that they don’t relish the idea of getting in a political brawl with the government and one of its most powerful agencies – the IRS. The needless fear of an audit by the IRS is enough to
The Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) has been at the forefront of challenging anti-religious groups like the Freedom From Religion Foundation. The Freedom From Religion Foundation has been working overtime to remove religion and religious expression from every area of American life. If it could, it would dismantle the First Amendment.
The following is from Freedom Outpost: “The Internal Revenue Service settled a 2012 lawsuit brought by the Freedom from Religion Foundation (FFRM). The lawsuit was settled after the IRS agreed to monitor what is said in houses of worship.” Monitoring churches is something the Nazis did. When German anti-Nazi theologian
I don’t begrudge actors making loads of money. It’s not costing me anything. When their work is good, I benefit by being entertained. When it’s bad, I don’t watch. The thing that does tick me off is when actors spout off about things they don’t know that will cost me
Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R), presidential candidate, and now political commentator for the Fox News channel recommend to Baptist pastors that they should consider rejecting tax exempt status for their churches because of concerns of not being able to speak freely about social and political issues. He told a
More than 1400 pastors stood up in their pulpits on Sunday and told the IRS, “We’re Mad at Hell and We’re not Going to take it Any More.” For nearly 60 years, the IRS and its liberal surrogates at the ACLU have threatened ministers with the lie that if they
Reports are coming in that the voter rolls have been faked. We knew that the voter rolls were padded in places like Chicago, but now we’re learning that the fraud is more widespread than we ever could have imagined. The question is, can we do anything to stop it? In
Christian pastors, you are now free to talk about politics from the pulpit. You can even endorse a candidate. And when your sermon is finished, you can register people to vote right in your church. Who gave you this right? Well, first, the men who drafted the Constitution, specifically, the
According to a Christian Post article, Americans United for Separation of Church and State (AC) “is calling on the Internal Revenue Service to look into allegations that Bellevue Baptist Church in Cordova, Tenn., is violating restrictions for posting a link to a pro-family organization on its website.” What restrictions? The
Liberal talker Alan Colmes claims that Jesus “believed the rich should give to the poor.” Let’s assume that Colmes’ analysis of Jesus is correct. This is a far cry from saying that rich people should be taxed and that the government should give indiscriminately to the poor even though they
