Pastor Used Church Resources To Endorse GOP Hopeful Huckabee As God's Candidate In Violation Of Federal Tax Law, Says Church-State Watchdog Group
Americans United for Separation of Church and State today urged the Internal Revenue Service to investigate the First Southern Baptist Church of Buena Park, Calif., for possible violation of federal tax law barring electioneering by non-profit groups.
“Federal tax law is clear,” said the Rev. Barry W. Lynn, Americans United executive director, “Churches and other non-profits may not endorse candidates, if they want to keep their tax exemption. I am confident that the vast majority of Americans do not want to see their houses of worship politicized.”
