IRS asked pro-life group about the content of their prayers





quote:

During a House Ways and Means Committee hearing today, Rep. Aaron Schock, R-Ill., grilled outgoing IRS commissioner Steven Miller about the IRS targeting a pro-life group in Iowa.

“Their question, specifically asked from the IRS to the Coalition for Life of Iowa: ‘Please detail the content of the members of your organization’s prayers,’" Schock declared.

“Would that be an inappropriate question to a 501 c3 applicant?” asked Schock. “The content of one’s prayers?”

“It pains me to say I can’t speak to that one either,” Miller replied.

After Schock pressed him further, Miller explained that although he couldn't comment on the specific case, it would "surprise him" if that question was asked.

The report stems from the Thomas More Society, a national public interest law firm for religious liberty.


quote:

Coalition for Life of Iowa found itself in the IRS’s crosshairs when the group applied for tax exempt status in October 2008. Nearly ten months of interrogation about the group’s opposition to Planned Parenthood included a demand by a Ms. Richards from the IRS’ Cincinnati office unlawfully insisted that all board members sign a sworn declaration promising not to picket/protest Planned Parenthood. Further questioning by the IRS requested detailed information about the content of the group’s prayer meetings, educational seminars, and signs their members hold outside Planned Parenthood.

So now we know the name of one of the two rogue employees who took it upon themselves to set policy for the IRS. I wonder what happens if information requests signed by more than two IRS employees turn up? I'd be willing to bet that members of Congress have asked for copies of notices sent by the IRS to 501(c)(4) applicants. If more than two names are on the requests then it will be proof that more than two IRS employees were involved,

I do not openly talk to my wife about my prayers, why would I talk to a bureaucrat about them. POS Thugs.

They are not coming for your guns, your freedom, your children, your homes, just pay up and shut up.

And we wonder why? PC BS has spread like a cancer under Obama's watch.
