Attacking The Internal Revenue Service


11/2/16

Trump vows to remove the Johnson Amendment.
That was Lyndon Johnson's amendment that allowed churches a tax break
provided they stayed out of politics.
Have the churches kept their end of the bargain?

Pulpit Freedom Sunday

Notice when it began (2008) - right before the election of Barack Obama.
I'm sure that was just a coincidence.



Since the churches openly flaunt the law
and still demand their government handouts,
it doesn't really matter if Trump does remove it.
The IRS knows that it cannot enforce law against the churches
and the churches know ... that the IRS knows it (that's why they do it).

Christians openly laugh in the face of the IRS

Pulpit Freedom Sunday

The reason they break the law with impunity is because they know, that the government knows, that if the IRS makes any attempt to enforce the law, Christian leaders will rally their congregations. They will remove elected officials, sue appointed officials, and as history has proven over and over, resort to violence if necessary. They are openly flaunting the law because they know that their control of the masses ensures that they can get away with it.

This is why they trumpet their patriotism so loudly - as a distraction from the fact that they are the least patriotic citizens in America.

This 'Puke' figures he can hijack the current I.R.S. scandal
and use it to his own advantage,
in an attempt to hide the fact that his organization is violating I.R.S. law.
Perhaps 'Puke' was too generous of a description?



I thought this was one of the best comments following the story:

"Mr. Graham and his organizations were audited
because it appeared they were in violation of the tax exempt requirements
by using their money to advance a political position.
These organizations are allowed to raise huge amounts of money and pay no taxes.
In additon, the people who donate to these organizations
deduct the contribution on their taxes
thereby reducing the amount of money the government collects even further.
They should be be happy and willing for anyone to review their records.
This is a privilege the majority of businesses are not allowed.
"

Churches laugh in the face of the I.R.S.



Churches know that as long as they control the masses,
and can provoke them to anger and violence if need be,
the government cannot control them.
That's why they openly violate the law and dare the government to act ...

knowing it cannot

If only America had the balls to do this.

Italian Church Stripped of Tax Exempt Status

In America Christian leaders openly mock the IRS
for failing to enforce laws which prohibit churches
from engaging in political activities (see podcast #206).
They encourage other ministers to continue to violate the law.
These unpatriotic leaders ridicule our Constitution
and its concept of separation of Church and State.
Italy finally found the courage to act against its Ghost Worshipers.

Now, if only America could find its testicles

Assaults against our Medical System

8 nurses fired for refusing flu vaccinations

After reading the article I realized that to make this world a better place,
don't worry so much about religion ... do something about the lawyers.

Also, I couldn't find anything in the article which explained
why this is a religious matter.

I must have missed those verses in the Bible that discuss vaccines

Remember how the Supreme Court assured us
that the Hobby Lobby decision was a narrow decision
that did not mean that religious ideology would be allowed to run wild?

Well ... they lied.

And amazingly, they weren't proven to be liars by others,
but by contradicting their own position written only days earlier.

Justice Sotomayor opens up a can of whoop ass

At this point, they don't even bother with appearances anymore.
They simply push their religious beliefs on everyone else,
in smirking defiance of our Constitution.

"Constitution? We don't need no stinking Constitution."

Corporations are people and Jesus is Lord ... so says the Supreme Court.

Am I upset?

You must be kidding.
I could not have been born at a better time;
and there is no place on Earth I would rather be than at ground zero (Christian America).
I live for combat ... I could not be happier.

Ghost Worshipers scream when they aren't allowed to force their beliefs on others.

Denial of birth control

I think the part that really says it all
is where they refer to the plaintiff, Frank O'Brien,
a devout Catholic One-Percenter, who wants to:

"deny his employees birth control coverage but says that
the Federal regulation prevents him from following his conscience.
"

Dear Mr. Ghost Worshiper,
Federal regulations also prevent you from exercising your religious freedoms to:

1) own slaves                                                                          
2) stone people to death                                                        
3) teach your fairy tales in publicly funded science classes
4) sacrifice animals                                                                 
5) execute gays and atheists                                                 

And that is just a partial list of the religious practices
condoned in your ancient book of horrors
that is prohibited by modern, civilized laws.
Freedom of religion means that you can go to your temples
to pray to your invisible ghosts without fear of government interference.
It does not mean that you have the freedom to force your beliefs on others,
or to hurt other people when your holy book gives you permission.

Oh, and Dude, as humanity continues to progress and modernize,
for "you people" it's only going to get a whole lot worse.

Typical Christian inconsistency

Christians have been fighting furiously since the late 1970's
to overturn Roe vs. Wade.
They side with the rights of the unborn
over the rights of the parents on the issue of abortion.

In this article, Christians take the contradictory position:
they side with the rights of the parents
over the rights of their own children on the issue of genital mutilation.

Ghost Worshipers will say whatever they have to say,
and take whichever position they have to take, to protect their religious beliefs;
and as this story proves, that includes taking contradictory positions.

The ghost of George Bush returns to haunt science
(he infamously blocked stem cell research)

U.S. Will Not Fund Embryo Editing

When Francis Collins was appointed to head the National Institutes of Health,
a shudder ran through the scientific community.
Collins had successfully guided the human genome project
and was rewarded with this plum position at NIH.
But many were nervous because of his strong creationist views
which he had expressed through his web site "Biologos."
That site attempted to wed science and faith
(an impossible task without the aid of delusion).
To assuage fears and remove the appearance of a conflict of interest,
Collins resigned from Biologos when he took over the top job at NIH.

Now, something we've all feared might happen, has come to pass.
Collins is using his position, along with help from other Evangelicals,
to stop "embryo editing"
just like George Bush stopped government support of stem cell research.
Collins refuses to fund this incredible new technology,
but has no problem with the NIH funding bullshit pseudosciences
like acupuncture and chiropractic.

Fortunately, China is moving ahead,
and as was the case with stem cell research,
private industry is also proceeding.

The part that really galled me was:

"the journals Science and Nature ...
refused to publish the Chinese study because of the ethical problems.
"

(I wonder where I've heard something like that before? Oh yeah ...
"the American media refused to publish the Charlie Hebdo cartoons
because of ethical problems.
")

Yeah, that's the ticket - let's all pretend these things don't exist
and maybe they will just magically go away on their own ...

like global warming

The penalty for leaving Islam (apostasy) is death.
At Brigham Young University they wanted to show
how much more civilized they were than Muslims,
so instead of the death penalty,
leaving the faith is only punishable by ...

expulsion from the University

Administrators justified their Draconian rule
by saying that it was okay because they informed students "up front."
So I guess Muslims can use that same excuse
when they execute anyone who tries to leave Islam.

"Hey, don't blame us - we told you what would happen."

(Yes, that is what actually passes for logic ... in the religious world)

The school fired him.
The trial court upheld his dismissal.
The appeals court upheld the trial court and the school district ...
but look how close the vote was in the Supreme Court (4-3).
And look at the flimsy excuse the dissent tried to provide for him.

Ohio Supreme Court upholds firing of Creationist teacher

In a country that is 75% Christian,
Christian judges undoubtedly hold most of the judicial seats.
Many Christian judges honor their oath to protect the Constitution;
but unfortunately ... many answer to a higher power.

If you go to the podcast archive (shows #161-163),
you can see the depths to which some judges are willing to sink,
in order to defend their religious convictions.

Colorado Supreme Court strikes down school vouchers

This decision in Colorado was a razor-thin victory for our Secular Democracy.
The Wall of Separation has just withstood another barrage ... but only barely.
It's just a matter of time before Christians gain control
of the Colorado Supreme Court as they have the United States Supreme Court.
When they do, it is clear exactly what they have in mind:
the demise of public education,
and the return of all children into private religious schools
(that would be "Christian" religious schools)
