    An update on an old story. I'm not claiming an IRS conspiracy, but I am wonder whether anyone has heard of any politically-active conservative churches being subjected to this level of scrutiny by the IRS.

    ah, yes, i had forgotten about this story. i'm glad someone is following up on it.

    the intimidation of a couple years ago almost seems a little quaint now, doesn't it? or should we adopt a cheneyism and declare this administration is in its final throes?

    Interesting, considering that here in Ohio conservative churches have been embracing Ken Blackwell, Republican candidate for governor, where he is a frequent speaker on the subject of politics and morals.

    Apparently it's all right for a candidate to promote himself in a church, but not okay for a church by itself to make any comment.
