Not only that, but the article states that this activity is a class-three felony in Texas. :hammer:

Here's a link to the IRS website page which states:

Currently, the law prohibits political campaign activity by charities and churches by defining a 501©(3) organization as one "which does not participate in, or intervene in (including the publishing or distributing of statements), any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for public office."

So every time we have read about various churches speaking for or against any candidate or their policies they are breaking the law.

Food for thought. :popcorn:

Wow, I didn't know that! So they are not only breaking God's law, but man's law also, which then means they are breaking God's law on 2 counts.-Romans 13:1.

Can we just imagine the time when the government says, " THAT'S IT! Enough is enough! " and starts using the ol' sedition laws and starts rounding Christendom like cattle. That's when all the atheists come in droves and everybody starts saying that their atheist. I can only speculate what the match will be to set off the fire.
