The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Casey Harper reports:
Pastors across the country live in fear that the IRS will come knocking, and that fear is growing as candidates prepare to announce their 2016 presidential candidacies.
Pastors navigating vague IRS laws that legislators have been lax in reforming are now worried that exercising their First Amendment rights will cost them their tax exempt status. They are worried that any political comments, even by a guest pastor, could cost them their church, and experts say there is little hope of reform before the next election.
We already know that under the Obama regime the Internal Revenue Service has ruthlessly targeted tea party and other conservative groups. We know IRS henchwoman Lois Lerner has called Republicans “crazies” and worse in private emails.
Knowing what we already know about this administration and the Left, why shouldn’t America’s churches be worried?
