Intimidation through investigation
From The Washington Times:
The watchdog organizations Alliance Defending Freedom and Judicial Watch asked a federal court last week to compel the tax agency to reveal how it decides when a church has crossed the line to violate the Johnson Act, endangering its tax-exempt status. Traditionally, pastors in the pulpit have been given the benefit of the doubt when the spirit moves them to narrow the line between preaching and politics. Liberal pastors have rarely been bothered.
