JESUS WEPT: Obama’s IRS Demands Pro-Life Group Disclose Frequency and Content of Members’ PRAYERS

IRS_Prayers

By Gary P Jackson

The more we look at the tactics used by the Obama regime to assault political enemies, the more evil we discover.

News came out last week that Obama’s IRS thugs had demanded a pro-life group, the Coalition for Life of Iowa, not only disclose the content of their members’ PRAYERS, but how long their members spent praying!

Trying to find words to describe this illegal assault on the First Amendment isn’t easy. I think Sissy Willis says it much better than I ever could: Jesus wept:

From Yahoo News:

On June 22, 2009, the Coalition for Life of Iowa received a letter from the IRS office in Cincinnati, Ohio, that oversees tax exemptions requesting details about how often members pray and whether their prayers are “considered educational.”

Please explain how all of your activities, including the prayer meetings held outside of Planned Parenthood, are considered educational as defined under 501(c)(3),” reads the letter, made public by the Thomas More Society, a public interest law firm that collected evidence about the IRS practices. “Organizations exempt under 501(c)(3) may present opinions with scientific or medical facts. Please explain in detail the activities at these prayer meetings. Also, please provide the percentage of time your organizations spends on prayer groups as compared with the other activities of the organization.”

The IRS is currently under fire for allegedly targeting conservative groups that applied for nonprofit status in recent years. In response, two IRS officials have stepped down, including Acting Commissioner Steven Miller.

That portion of the questionnaire, in which the IRS also asked about signs the group intended to carry at rallies at Planned Parenthood offices, is below:

In response, the group’s attorneys at Mosher & Associates, a firm based in Chicago, responded:

Coalition for Life 1

Coalition for Life 2

During the hearings last week Congressman Aaron Schock (R-Illinois) asked disgraced IRS stooge Steve Miller about this assault on Liberty and Freedom, as expected, Miller played dumb:

Unbelievable.

Our right to worship as we please is one of our most basic rights. The pilgrims left England to escape state run religion, and our founders valued religious freedom so much, they wrote it into the Constitution.

Our Declaration of Independence goes even further, acknowledging that all of our rights come from God. The opening reads:

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

It’s clear our founders understood the power of God, and the importance of having God in one’s heart. So much so, they made it illegal for the government to interfere with this essential right.

Sissy Willis also asked God to help us. We all need to pray that God delivers us from the evils our out of control government is raining down on us all.

Unreal! Conservative Blogger Aaron Walker Arrested After Maryland Hearing on Kimberlin Case

By Gary P Jackson

I can’t believe what just happened in the Maryland. We’ve talked about convicted murdering domestic terrorist Brett Kimberlin at length.

Kimberlin, a George Soros stooge, and employee of the Obama regime, has been harassing bloggers, making death threats, and disrupting the lives of anyone who dare expose him.

In one of the most incredible, and chilling things I’ve seen in a long time, a Maryland soft on crime judge, has taken blogger Aaron Walker [A.W. in the report linked above] into custody, rather than Kimberlin.

From The Other McCain via Twitchy:

Aaron Walker, whose complaint against convicted terrorist Brett Kimberlin became a conservative cause célèbre this past week, was reportedly taken into custody today after a court hearing in Rockville, Maryland.

One person who attended the hearing in Montgomery County District Court said that Kimberlin asserted that Walker’s continued blogging represented a violation of a “peace order” Kimberlin had obtained against the Virginia attorney, who says Kimberlin tried to “frame” him for assault earlier this year.

During the course of the hearing — which reportedly lasted about an hour — Judge C.J. Vaughey appeared to become increasingly hostile toward Walker, who was taken into custody when the hearing concluded.

On Thursday, May 17, Walker published a 28,000-word account of his experience being targeted by Kimberlin, which soon caught the attention of leading figures in online New Media, including University of Tennessee law professor Glenn Reynolds, who writes the popular Instapundit blog, and bestselling author Michelle Malkin, who warned her readers, “Please remember: Kimberlin is a radical, violent, lying, dangerous felon.”

UPDATE: According to a source, Kimberlin claimed during the hearing that he has received death threats as a result of Walker’s violation of the peace order. In 1981, Kimberlin was sentenced to 50 years in federal prison for his crimes, including the 1978 terrorist bombing that brutally maimed Vietnam veteran Carl DeLong

Here is a copy of the so-called “peace order” that was filed by Kimberlin against Walker:

From what I uhat I understand, Kimberlin is out on parole. He’s been harassing numerous people, including playing a little game called “swatting.” What Kimberlin does, is spoof someone’s phone number into his phone’s caller I.D. [it ain’t hard to do] and then call the police [while pretending to be the person he’s harassing] and then claiming he murdered someone.

Obviously this will illicit a response from the police. What Kimberlin is hoping for is some sort of armed response.

Kimberlin pulled this on Red State blogger and CNN contributor Erick Erickson over the weekend. [more on this later]

What I don’t understand is if Kimberlin is on parole, why in the world is this animal still allowed to wonder the streets. He’s clearly broken all kinds of laws, and put many lives in danger. And this isn’t just some petty criminal. Besides domestic terrorism, Kimberlin is a convicted drug dealer.

Instead of putting law abiding bloggers in jail, Kimberlin must be put back in a hole and left to rot.

We know he’s protected by the democrat party, including the president and George Soros, the self-proclaimed owner of the party, but still.

Currently there are calls on Twitter for a protest this afternoon at the courthouse, and @WisConservative has tweeted:

Please Contact Maryland State Attorney To Politely, Respectfully Ask Justice For Aaron Walker http://t.co/VFZHqMLT

Meanwhile, Michelle Malkin has a must read “blogger to do list

The democrat party has declared war on Freedom and Liberty. This must not stand. This cannot stand.

Nationwide Stand Up For Religious Freedom Rally Set For Friday March 23

By Gary P Jackson

The Coalition Stop the HHS Mandate has scheduled a nationwide rally to protest the Obama regime and it’s latest unconstitutional mandate, a direct assault on religious freedom, as guaranteed by the First Amendment of the Constitution.

We applaud these patriots who refuse to allow the regime to continually erode our constitutional rights with their radical agenda.

The rally will be held Friday March 23rd at locations nationwide.

The Nationwide Rally for Religious Freedom is being held Friday, March 23 at noon, local time, outside federal buildings, Congressional offices and historic sites across the country.

The theme for the Rally is “Stand Up for Religious Freedom—Stop the HHS Mandate!

Thousands of Americans of all faiths will be participating in these peaceful rallies, organized by the Pro-Life Action League and Citizens for a Pro-Life Society to oppose the new mandate from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) that requires all employers provide free contraceptives, sterilization and abortion-inducing drugs through their health plans, even in violation of their consciences.

Religious leaders and other public figures will speak out against the HHS Mandate at each Rally site. Holding signs reading “Stand Up for Religious Freedom” and “Stop the HHS Mandate,” participants will offer hymns and prayers for our nation and pass out literature to the public about why the HHS Mandate is unconstitutional and Un-American.

NOTE: All rallies will take place at noon local time, Friday March 23.

The organizers note that if you don’t see an event near you, there is still time to put one together, and they’ll be happy to help you with putting one together.
