The IRS came after Billy Graham, too, his son charged Tuesday in a letter to President Barack Obama.
Franklin Graham, the president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and the familys international humanitarian organization Samaritans Purse, said that the IRS notified the organizations in September that it was conducting a review of their activities for tax year 2010.
With the IRS admitting it gave extra scrutiny to conservative political organizations, Graham says he now believes that the review was part of an Obama administration effort of targeting and attempting to intimidate us.
The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association urging of voters to back candidates who base their decisions on biblical principles and support the nation of Israel during last years presidential race was the reason why IRS agents visited the North Carolina offices of both Graham groups, the letter accuses.
While these audits not only wasted taxpayer money, they wasted money contributed by donors for ministry purposes as we had to spend precious resources servicing the IRS agents in our offices, Graham wrote in the letter, which was shared with POLITICO.....

Wonder how many other Christian org were targeted?
The majority of Americans are now inofficially at war with the Obama administration. this will now end with his impeachment and removal from office. So help us God.
I almost wish we’d go pitchforks and tar & feathers. Old school, so to speak.
Maybe a tax revolt is in order.
Pray to God your right!
he hates Christians and Jews and he’s made this known throughout
we voted for him
and as Mr Transparency himself told us,
“elections have consequences!”
(pray for America)
One big problem. You have the sissy, black-mailed Boehner who does not want to forcefully take on these issues.
Boehner hates the Tea Party as much as the left does.
Yes, it is time for that kind of thinking. Revolution should not be a dangerous word feared due to government search engines, rather the beacon we march toward. So help is God.
True. But he is apparently becoming marginalized. I imagine, ney I believe his “secrets” will soon come out of the closet, courtesy his friends in dc who seek self power over loyalty. This will be a long hot summer like 1968.
Has the IRS become the American Gestapo?
Tune in for the hearings.
I don’t know about you, but I never voted for him.
I saw that report
Why they want go after sweet old man like Billy Graham that just mess up
Okay we talk about Obama secrets
Do you think Reggie Love would write a book about his so called friendship with Obama
They have been hard pressed to make the Samaritan’s Purse gifts to the Middle East could not have any Scripture. Trying real hard to be sensitive and not to offend anyone. No one ever thinks of offending Christians.
Understood. I meant we America voted for him. Not you or any particular individual. Sorry about that.
Graham to Obama: IRS targeted BGEA and Samaritans Purse, too
I pray that this all works out for the best. I don’t presume to know what God regards as the best, but if I had my choice it would be to bring down the zippy administration and the IRS along with it.
“Are they out of their minds? They don’t know how revered and popular Billy Graham is all over the world?”
If they are young, and non-Christian, no, they really don’t know.
That’s why we’re repeating history.
“Why they want go after sweet old man like Billy Graham that just mess up.”
Are you kidding? Billy Graham is deadly to these types.
Ephesians 6: 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.
As a Christian Canadian who is not quiet about what your Pres__ent is doing to a once great nation, I now look to crossing the border to visit the US with trepidation. After all, if the IRS is investigating Christians primarily, the US millitary brass considers the discussion of Christianity treasonous, and DHS and the FBI consider fundamentalist Christians to be a huge domestic threat; then an Evangelical Christian Canadian attempting to cross into the US must set the DHS anti-terrorist alarm bells a-ringing at the border!
With Trudeau as Prime Minister for most of my early life and the Liberals ruining the government even longer; as a young man, I preferred and respected the United States to Canada, especially during the Reagan years, hence my nom de geurre on this website.
With what you folks as a country (both living and dead Americans and immigrants, many voting multiple times) elected during your last two Presidential elections and who we Canadians have had as leader for seven years, I can say that I am now a PROUD Canadian! My fear is that unfortunately, in three years we will have another election where Trudeau Jr. and the Liberals will win.
I hope for a peaceful revolution soon in the States; a revolution where truth becomes the by-word for politicians and media, a revolution where cynicism is replaced with hope (NOT ‘hope and change’), a revolution where governmental and millitary leaders EARN their positions based on merit and ability, rather than politics!
Romans 12:19 ...
Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.
Dear Lord, We fiscal conservatives like our payments to be made in full and on time. Please send your payment ASAP. Amen.
This thread should not have been moved.
It needs to be EVERYWHERE on FreeRepublic.
God does NOT deserve compartmentalization.
Thanks, 2nd Division.
I pray the Lord show as much patience and forbearance with my transgressions as He certainly has with Obama’s. A man can’t ask for any more than that....
“Something is rotten in the state of Denmark.”
The LORD does have his ways of exposing evil plots, now doesn’t He?
“Therefore do not fear them. For there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be known.”
The attacks on Christians has begun.
Aint no maybe to it. We should be burning down their houses by now.
