Freedom From Religion Foundation Sues IRS Over Political Activity By Churches, Religious Groups
MADISON, Wis. -- A federal lawsuit filed by a Wisconsin-based group representing atheists and agnostics argues that the Internal Revenue Service is violating the U.S. Constitution by allowing tax-exempt churches and religious organizations to get involved in political campaigns.
One guy they went after were ads by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association this election.
They're even sore about Catholic bishops encouraging members to vote in line with a “Catholic conscience."
IRS doesn't enforce the after churches for fear the SC will declare it unConstitutional. So some pastors put on "'Pulpit Freedom Sunday,' a national event on Oct. 7 in which more than 1,500 pastors endorsed a candidate from the pulpit and then sent a record of their statement to the IRS, hoping their challenge would eventually end up in court."
