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.”

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.
