Appalling: The IRS Just Denied A Texas-Based Christian Group Tax Exempt Status, Claiming That The Teaching Of The Bible Is ‘Affiliated With GOP’

(Republican Party News) – The Internal Revenue Service has denied a Texas-based Christian group’s tax exempt status because they think the Bible’s teachings are affiliated specifically with the Republican Party. While there is some truth to the notion that much of what is on the right is somehow tied into Christian belief and thought, the Bible itself is not a partisan religious text.

According to Gateway Pundit, IRS director of exemptions Stephen Martin has sent out a letter to Christians Engaged and stated that the group used Bible teachings “typically affiliated with the Republican Party and candidates” which educated people on how they should vote in elections.

“By teaching members about issues such as ‘the sanctity of life, the definition of marriage, biblical justice, laws vs. lawlessness, freedom of speech, religious liberty, government and business ethics, human trafficking, fiscal responsibility in government budgeting, defense, borders and immigration, U.S. and Israel relations,’ Martin said the group had “engaged in prohibited campaign intervention,'” a report from Fox Business said.

“While you educate voters on what the bible says about issues, your educational activities are not neutral,” he went on to write. “The topics typically are affiliated with distinct candidates and specific political party platforms.”

The group, which first formed in July 2019, also educates individuals on how to choose between ‘imperfect candidates,’ urging members to look at what the candidate says about the issues and see if their beliefs align with the bible,” Martin added.

Christian Engaged – which describes itself as ‘educational, Christian and non-partisan’ – has a section on its website encouraging individuals to vote in every election ‘to impact our culture,'” the report continued.

The group has appealed and has once again stated they are not political, also noting they do not put out voter guides.

“We just want to encourage more people to vote and participate in the political process,” Christians Engaged President and founder Bunni Pounds went on to state. “How can anyone be against that?”

The IRS has also noted that the leadership of the group is packed with ‘GOP activists’ and then decided the organization doesn’t qualify for tax exempt status.

The whole idea of tax exempt status seems like something that was invented as a means of legalizing the ability of the left to infiltrate churches and use them for their own political advantages. Let’s hope this group is protected and able to continue their work.

  1. These people are in for a huge surprise. We all need to pray for them as hell is not where anyone would want to be. the Bible is the most read book in the world. Amazing that everything has been predicted as to what has happened and will happen. No aliens will not take Christians, Jesus will. Thes USF’s are even mentioned in the Bible as they are demonic led by Satan. They are appearing more as the time is getting closer for the to End of the Age. We need to pray for the unbeliever to accept Christ. The Tribulation is approaching.

    This is just a typical Obama put down of Christianity. He should be ashamed of himself as he lied through his teeth saying almost all his life that he was truly a Christian, at least enough to get votes to elect him. Just this type of lie shows his demeanor and what we could expect in the future. We have to dump these people that lie, cheat and steal, destroy and conduct heinous crimes against humanity. Their treatment of seniors, the generations before, shows their respect for people who give it all and the vets.

  3. They should sue the IRS. Get the best lawyers and stick it to the IRS which has been armed again by Biden. Obama weaponized the IRS during his rule and was shut down, now the demented Biden is weaponizing them again. So we are going to have to shut that boob down even harder and put the IRS on notice. Those running the IRS need to be removed and all in the agency that support the Leftist agenda and methodology. They all need to go.

  4. I agree the group should sue the IRS. The deep state is getting deeper. Perhaps the separation of church and state needs also to be re-evaluated with a law suit that declares that religious institutions are by law separate and should never be taxed. The way it is set up now, it’s a carrot on a stick which gives immoral government the deciding role if a group receives tax relief or not, which proves that there is currently no full separation between church and government. Take it to court.

  5. So the IRS is officially saying that those people the Bible says are good and honorable people are made up of those who support the GOP and those that commit sins against the Bible and do not believe or follow the Bible are the Democrats………Okay, I guess that is quite often the case. Nice that the IRS Notices that we are the good people anyway and the Democrats are the bad sinners! LOL!

  6. How do Black Southern Baptist Churches get Tax Free Status because The Bible is utilized in they’re beliefs?
    Open Societies get tax free status and is directly linked to leftist terrorism groups and Soros pays no US Taxes!
    If you are looking for fairness, today’s America is Today’s Africa, economically enslavement of citizens for the few elites, with corruption, theft and lies, as acceptable as breathing air to live!
    If we do not take our country back, it will never be ours again, not ever, except for a hollow shell called the United States of Impoverishment!
    Homeless bound for everyone except the few elites!!
