THE PEOPLE SPEAK – IRS limits churches during elections

— We have heard a lot about how the IRS targets the Tea Party, but the way they control churches with the tax-exempt status has much more effect.

During the 2012 election, Romney was for traditional marriage and other Bible values and was supported by Billy Graham and other Christian leaders.

Obama was for same- sex marriage and was endorsed by the Communist USA Party and other top communist and Islamic leaders.

Because of IRS rules, churches could not point this out. It would be better for churches to lose their tax-exempt status than their freedom to tell the full truth.

John 8:32 “Ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.”
