DOJ and IRS to Train Black Churches to Campaign for Obama
Just when you think you’ve seen it all… Obama’s dictatorship style DOJ drops a new level of shock on us all. Swallow your drink and then read this.
Attorney General Eric Holder, the IRS, and the liberal lawyers at the ACLU will brief several hundred pastors in the African American community on how to participate in the presidential election — which the Congressional Black Caucus chair expects will help President Obama’s campaign.
“We will have representatives from nine denominations who actually pastor somewhere in the neighborhood of about 10 million people, and we’re going to first of all equip them with the information they need to know about what they can say and what they cannot say in the church that would violate their 501c3 status with the IRS,” Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, D-Mo., told MSNBC today.
“In fact, we’re going to have the IRS administrator there, we’re going to have the Attorney General Eric Holder there, we’re going to have the lawyers’ organization from around the country, the ACLU — all giving ministers guidance about what they can and cannot do,” he noted.
If I read this correctly, it appears as though the IRS and DOJ are going to teach black churches how to skirt the law on campaigning as a non-profit entity. Surely the act of the training in and of itself is illegal, no? -Eric Odom
