Skip to comments.Obama Misused Church Resources to Support his Campaign

The United Church of Christ's Web site reports that Barack Obama's delivery of a campaign speech at its annual synod--a blatant misuse of the church's tax exempt resources--prompted the Internal Revenue Service to investigate the church. That is, Barack Hussein Obama's knowing, deliberate, premeditated, and willful misuse of his church's resources to support his Presidential campaign put the church's tax exemption at risk.
The Internal Revenue Service has notified the United Church of Christ's national offices in Cleveland, Ohio, that the IRS has opened an investigation into U.S. Sen. Barack Obama's address at the UCC's 2007 General Synod as the church engaging in "political activities."
"Barack Hussein Obama's knowing, deliberate, premeditated, and willful misuse of his church's resources to support his Presidential campaign" is a harsh accusation, but the evidence shows that it was not inadvertent. Obama cannot claim that he did not know that church resources cannot be used for electioneering, because the church made this very clear to him before the fact. He and his campaign staff agreed to these rules. Nor can Obama claim that he forgot the rules in the heat of the moment, because he wrote his speech (premeditation) ahead of time. That is, Barack Obama was willing to jeopardize his church's tax exemption for his personal benefit.

For fun, go search on how many other D candidates and operatives have spoken at UCC churches.
At least the IRS is doing their job--they've been going after conservative churches since LBJ was a Senator (he was the one responsible for crafting the law that shut churches up, since he was jealous of the Catholic church's support for JFK).
