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.

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.

If the Americans United for the Separation of Church and State know that what they are doing is unconstitutional then why are they doing it?
