IRS to Church: Shut Up!

1:00 PM -- From the CNN.com Dept. of Comparative Religion:

  • The Internal Revenue Service has warned a prominent liberal church it could lose its tax-exempt status because of an anti-war sermon a guest preacher gave on the eve of the 2004 presidential election, church officials say.

    The Rev. George F. Regas did not urge parishioners at All Saints Episcopal Church in Pasadena to support either President Bush or John Kerry, but he was critical of the Iraq war and Bush's tax cuts.

This so-called Christian criticized the President? Can't have that. I mean, once you allow churchmen to dabble in politics,wherewillitend?
