As we’ve discussed before, the IRS is harassing a liberal California church for alleged partisan political activity based upon nothing more than the minister giving an antiwar sermon (you know that turn the other cheek crap) shortly before the 2004 election (although no candidate was indorsed).
On the other hand, as seen in this article posted today, the Southern Baptist Convention, which continues to operate as a virtual arm of the Republican National Committee, goes merrily about its business.
This goes beyond hypocrisy. It’s the use of one of the most feared arms of the federal government as a weapon of political intimidation. There is literally nothing these people won’t do.
