So pelosi and Biden can use their church for political reasons such as pro abortion but not conservatives.

Historical linku (things that make you go...):

In Norway, Varg Vikernes and his group of death metal fans burnned arounnd 50 churches over a short period of time. Vikernes father worked for Saddam Hussein. He hasn’t changed.

In the US, Adam Gadahn came out of the death metal scene and became Azzam al Amriki, Al Quaida’s number three after Osama and Zalwahiri.

You’ll see more churches razed. And more mosques built with your tax money.

I remember this when Bill Lewdinsky Clinton was running for re-erection! They sent letters to all WHITE churches and warned us NOT to mention the election at all or we would lose our tax exemptions They did NOT send these letters to black churches and they sent speakers to those churches, drumming up votes for our real first black prez I was so hurt that for the first time in my life there was no mention of the election, no prayer for the “state” for the best people to win the election and lead USA.

The IRS has always been an agency of jackbooted thugs but, now that there is an official thugocracy in place, they’re less concerned about appearances and getting caught.

The Vichy French thought the same thing . . . . . . . . until Hitler was defeated.

The IRS targetering the churches is something that almost every pastor has expected from this administration. While Obama says that he is a Christian, his background, history, actions, words and ideologies all scream that he is a Muslim and socialist. They have been expecting 0 to take away exemptions for tithing and charitable donations and tax the churches so that people will stop giving as much in order to make the churches suffer and collapse. This is a tactic straight from Satan’s playbook. The Leftists forget that the churches feed, clothe, and provide shelter and charity for the homeless and aid during times of catastrophes in addition to helping the elderly and visiting those in prison and other acts of kindness. They are only shooting themselves in the foot when their own government turns on them and has no use for them anymore. Everything about this administration is evil.

Okay I read the article but nowhere did I see “confirmation” IE evidence that the Obama IRS targeted anyone.
I sincerely believe they did however article like this do not help. It basically is an opinion piece which I could have written...........

Obama ordered his IRS to rig the election of 2012 for Obama and democrats/socialists in the Senate. Obama also used other gov agencies to rig the election. Why isn’t anyone shouting this form the rooftops? Come on Levin, coulter , Sarah Palin, Rush, DRudge etc. call Obama out on this and call for Obama’s resignation.

Obama’s IRS prevented many tea party groups from getting started The IRS stole the election. We no longer live in a free country

I always assumed this. The infiltrators also sought to take over vestries and destroy any conservative witness and install fellow traveling Communists.

Ohio Ping - Information that may be of interest

http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2013/06/confirmed-obama-irs-targeted-infiltrated-and-harassed-christian-churches/

On Thursday the Examiner provided an exclusive report indicating that the Obama administration had implemented a covert program beginning in 2009 that was intended to spy on conservative, evangelical Christian churches.

That program involved infiltration — sending in government operatives to join churches for the purpose of data collection. The government snoops would keep their eyes and ears open for criticism of the Obama administration, talk of Tea Party participation, conversations about gun ownership, and a number of other issues.

Why I am not surprised?

Christian churches challenge the right to abort children so close to Obama’s black heart.

And Obama surrogates and billionaire fake evangelicals Eric Schmidt and George Soros are buying lots of ads on Christian and conservative sites claiming that open borders is the Christian way.

Earth to jsanders, the Left doesn't give a crap about the poor, they use their bogus claims about caring for the poor to gain power. Power is all they care about. They don't want the competition from churches, because they diminish the demand for state control.

Exactly. There will be a tipping point when people who feel they no longer have a voice in the government will cease to support the government with their tax dollars.

Once enough of them do so and the government can no longer prosecute and lock up the tax evaders and avoiders because they've grown to critical mass, then the government will collapse.

If people in a given area are fortunate, churches and other civic minded organizations will step in to fill the void. If not, there will be a total breakdown and lawlessness to be tamed only by vigilantes, organized mobs, gangs and tribal leaders.

Just like the East German Stasi - the secret police - who infiltrated every block in every city to report on Germans disloyal to the German Democratic Republic - the wicked communist party.
