Antiwar Sermon Brings IRS Warning

All Saints Episcopal Church in Pasadena risks losing its tax-exempt status because of a former rector's remarks from the  pulpit in 2004, according to the Los Angeles Times.
 
In his sermon, the rector imagined Jesus participating in a political debate with then-candidates George W. Bush and John Kerry. The clergyman said that "good people of profound faith" could vote for either man, and did not tell parishioners whom to support.

Nevertheless, the IRS reportedly is concerned that the church intervened in a political campaign, a violation of the rules for non-profit organizations.

More and more President Bush is reminding me of bad sides of President Richard Nixon. Using the IRS for political purposes sounds so depressingly familiar.
