Americans United for Separation of Church and State Tries to Scare Churches

Americans United for Separation of Church and State recently announced that it sent over 60,000 letters to churches across the country, warning them from becoming involved in “partisan politicking” during this election season. The letter tries to intimidate churches by ominously warning “If the IRS determines that your house of worship has engaged in unlawful intervention, it can revoke the institution’s tax-exempt status or levy significant fines on the house of worship or its leaders.”

Letters like this are a favorite tactic of AU. For years now, it has attempted to intimidate churches into silence during election season. But here’s the problem. AU is using an unconstitutional law to try and intimidate and scare churches.

The Johnson Amendment, upon which AU bases its letter, is blatantly unconstitutional. Under the First Amendment, the pastor has the right to determine what is said from the ...

John Y., the Founding Fathers really disliked state churches, you know the type since you are a member of a church that thinks it should control the state, q.v., The Perils of Popery. Baptists wrote Thomas Jefferson to make sure they were protected from state churches usually the Reformed type in New England, anyway, TJ's Reply to Danbury Baptist Association.

It's a pity that an atheist group, has to remind Christians leaders what the duty of their churches are The Purpose of the Local Church and Community Issues and How the Church Relates to the Kingdom.
