Every year, the Religious Right pushes "Pulpit Freedom Sunday". They encourage pastors to endorse candidates from the pulpit. This sort of electioneering violates the IRS 501(c)(3) code, and should result in revocation of tax-exempt status. http://www.change.org/petitions/the-president-of-the-united-states-revoke-tax-exempt-status-of-political-churches

went to bed and woke up in Iraq. Judge Mark Martin must be impeached for harming plaintiff Ernest Perce's First Amendment rights. Based on egregious pro-sharia bias, Judge Martin dismissed assault charges against Talaag Elbayomy, citing sharia and noting that in countries across the muslim world, Perce would have been executed for insulting the prophet of Islam.
