Americans United for Separation of Church and State reported St. Raphael Catholic Church, a Roman Catholic Church in El Paso, Texas,“to the Internal Revenue Service after the church allegedly ran a notice in its bulletin that encouraged parishioners not to vote for President Barack Obama in the upcoming election.”
Barry W. Lynn, executive director of Americans United for Separation of Church and State, tried to intimidate church officials by claiming “federal law prohibits tax exempt, non-profit organizations (including houses of worship) from intervening in elections like this.” By citing “federal law” instead of the First Amendment, Lynn is engaged in a bit of legal sleight of hand.
The First Amendment does not prohibit churches from speaking out on any issue including political ones, even if they are tax exempt. The amendment is so clear that liberals almost never cite it:
“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.”
Rob Boston, Assistant Director of Communications for Americans United for Separation of Church and State and Assistant Editor of Church & State magazine, engages in similar constitutional fiction:“A church cannot link or direct people to an organization telling people how to vote.... All nonprofits, including churches, cannot endorse or oppose candidates.”
Notice that the First Amendment gives everybody, churches included since there are no exceptions listed, the right to speak about religion, write about religion, congregate about religion, and “petition the government for a redress of grievances.”
Intimidating churches has been going on for a long time. Lynn has been monitoring the content of Sunday sermons since 2004. If these self-appointed snitches don’t like what they hear, that is, if what a pastor says is “too political” and contrary to their liberal political agenda, they will send video and audio tapes to the IRS for investigation. If enough churches challenged the supposed prohibitions, the IRS wouldn’t know what to do. At the moment, the fear factor is enough to keep churches in check.
There are no constitutional prohibitions against churches speaking out on political issues or endorsing candidates. We got into this mess when in 1954 a law was rammed through Congress by then-Senator Lyndon Johnson to restrict churches from speaking freely on topics they have addressed for nearly two millennia. The following is from the IRS:
“The ban on political campaign activity by charities and churches was created by Congress more than a half century ago. The Internal Revenue Service administers the tax laws written by Congress and has enforcement authority over tax-exempt organizations. Here is some background information on the political campaign activity ban and the latest IRS enforcement statistics regarding its administration of this congressional ban.
“In 1954, Congress approved an amendment by Sen. Lyndon Johnson to prohibit 501(c)(3) organizations, which includes charities and churches, from engaging in any political campaign activity. To the extent Congress has revisited the ban over the years, it has in fact strengthened the ban. The most recent change came in 1987 when Congress amended the language to clarify that the prohibition also applies to statements opposing candidates.”
This so-called ban is a direct violation of the First Amendment. The First Amendment states,“Congress shall make no law....” In 1954, Congress made a law prohibiting churches from speaking out on political issues and endorsing candidates. The logic is simple. Since Congress passed such a law, then Congress violated the Constitution. This makes the law null and void.

Phooey! Science and Math are the two of the most important studies. Maybe you feel that way about science because you failed it in school.

Same BS as always! Separation of Church and State! As a Catholic, I am fed up with the church sticking its nose into politics. They pulled the same baloney when Asleep at the Wheel was running against Gore. I don't go to Mass to have the priest tell me who I should vote for, I go to listen to the Word of God. That is what a place of worship is for, not to preach politics.

They don't give a crap, and figure anyone bringing the issue up is trying to create an issue out of thin air.

Apparently we don't have enough real issues to be concerned about.

Christians have had their way with us practically forever. But for several decades now they've been facing serious challenges from natural science, psychology, other faiths, and the advancement of reason (revealing their tenets as poppycock and their methods as bunk).

And no matter how little I believe in God, I can't spend a dime without handing over something with "God" written on it.

The irony is, money and religion have become so intertwined, it may actually make sense for the motto to appear on there. Now all they need to do is put "In Money We Trust" on the front of every Bible.

As a Catholic myself I can state unequivocally that you present yourself to the public as either a fraud, an apostate, or a communist shill for obama.

If you, obama, or any of your ilk dare to thrust your fetid claws toward the heart of the church, there will be blow back that you with your invincible ignorance won't be able to comprehend.

The confluence of lacunae coursing through your brain would make a black hole blush.

Your utter ignorance of history demonstrates that we all would be much better off stroking a cow's udder and listening to its lowing than enduring the blather and prattle of crowing Leftists.
