The Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) has been at the forefront of challenging anti-religious groups like the Freedom From Religion Foundation. The Freedom From Religion Foundation has been working overtime to remove religion and religious expression from every area of American life. If it could, it would dismantle the First Amendment. Since it can’t do that (yet), it twists and perverts the First Amendment so that it reads as constitutional provision to deny religious expression.
This summer, the IRS struck a deal with the Freedom From Religion Foundation to go after churches that speak out on political issues. ADF wants to know what deal the IRS made with the anti-Christian organization.
“The Alliance Defending Freedom filed a Freedom of Information Act request on July 22, seeking additional details about what the agreement entailed, but has yet to receive documentation.
“‘The IRS wrote in a recent letter that it will not respond until Sept. 29,’ the legal firm said in a press release. ‘That’s well after the amount of time it is allowed by law, even though the information ADF is requesting is the same information the IRS has already provided to the Freedom From Religion Foundation, which struck a deal with the agency to end the lawsuit Freedom From Religion Foundation v. Koskinen.’”
The Freedom From Religion Foundation is smart to use the taxing agency since the IRS is untouchable. We’ve seen how two years of stonewalling over missing emails has not been resolved. No one’s been fired. The IRS is emboldened by the protection given to it by the Obama administration and the Democrats.
The IRS has not stopped harassing conservative groups.
