The point of the IRS action was intimidation. Official, government sanctioned intimidation. Despite my earlier frivilous posts, I take this situation seriously.

I don't take any moral authority from the church, but I'm uncomfortable with this.

I am appalled by the IRS action. I am in agreement with the Religious Right's Defense. I'm still on the left...

They aren't allowed, but that doesn't mean that many SBC churches won't push the envelope.

I can't believe that they've got the IRS on their case, just because the guy preached a liberal sermon.
