Black churches have a long history of campaigning in the church house. I don't
think these Black preachers have a clue that this is illegal and a violation of
their status with the IRS as a nonprofit corporation. A Non-Profit-Corporation
has NO rights. They are an instrumentality of the US Government. White Fundamental
and Evangelical churches are just as stupid about this.
keep warning you that you NPC people are NOT free. You cannot bellyache when the
IRS demands that you observe certain rules. You have put Caesar on the church
board, and Caesar helps you take the abundant offering via tax receipts. You CANNOT
have it both ways.
the last election, many Fundamental pastors campaigned from their bully pulpits
for George Bush in only slightly guarded terms.
you will not unregister your church and restore it to a historic church states
legally, you will soon be told which parts of the Bible you cannot preach from.
Frankly, I look forward to this day, for you money grubbers will lose you godly
people, and I shall help them start house churches which are separated and ready
for the rapture. Your state church is right in line with the future antichrist
system soon to come.

is an Obama campaign rally in a Black church. There is a civil rights attitude
in Black churches that says, " You White folks better now violate the
US Constitution, but when we do it, if you complain, we will scream RACISM."
This attitude, among many such attitudes by all races in the USA, will destroy
the nation soon. Those Black churches which claim to follow the Bible need
to read this Bible text: Ezekiel 44:23 And they shall
teach my people the difference between the holy and profane, and cause them
to discern between the unclean and the clean. These political churches
have no distinction between profane politics (all of it) and the holy things
that are supposed to happen in church gatherings. I am telling the truth, not
being racist, and any White church that does the same thing is just as wicked
as the Black churches.
IRS has notified a Liberty City church that it is under investigation for possibly
engaging in political activity -- putting its tax-exempt status into question.
is related to an appearance last October by Democratic presidential candidate
John Kerry and several black leaders, including U.S. Rep. Kendrick Meek of Miami,
the Rev. Al Sharpton and the Rev. Jesse Jackson.
reason for the investigation, an IRS official wrote in a 10-page letter obtained
by The Herald, is that ``a reasonable belief exists that Friendship Missionary
Baptist Church has engaged in political activities that could jeopardize its tax-exempt
status as a church.''
Gaston Smith took a break from the revelry and worship of Palm Sunday services
to inform the congregation about the inquiry. He said visits by political candidates
are nothing new, and that the 75-year-old church did not violate U.S. tax code,
as suggested in the letter. He has hired former U.S. Attorney Guy Lewis to defend
the church in the inquiry.
is not about politics. It's about principles,'' Smith said. Silence fell over
the congregation as he spoke. The inquiry raises serious questions about whether
the predominantly black church can keep its tax-exempt status. If it fails, members
and contributors could not deduct tithes and other gifts, upon which churches
heavily rely to operate.
